Taking a vacation and traveling once a year is probably ideal. But for many that might not always be feasible. There are budgetary concerns or work and family commitments. How often you take a vacation is totally up to you, but irrespective of the frequency, it is important that you plan your vacation and your travel in advance to enjoy the most and avoid last-minute hitches.
Some basic tips to plan your vacation and your travel that may come handy are:
1. Apply for your leave ahead of time and plan your vacation accordingly.
2. Decide where you and your family would want to go and then look for information on that place.
3. Choose a place that suits your budget. The last thing that you want while on a vacation is worrying about finances.
4. You can make the reservations, rentals and plan your itinerary by yourself or opt for package tours. Various websites and travel agents offer such tours.
5. Make a list of the sites or the activities that you want to take part in Ė it could be playing golf or having a SPA day. Book those in advance or negotiate with your tour provider to include those.
6. Always insist on a travel insurance to cover for cancellations or health emergencies while traveling.
7. Remember to carry clothes and lotions that suit the weather of your destination, First-Aid and medicine kit, your camera or camcorder with battery back-up, maps, a pocket book of translation if you are not accustomed to the language of the place and extra traveler's cheques. Avoid carrying too much cash.
8. Keep the contact numbers in case of an emergency if you are traveling to a foreign land e.g. if you have lost your passport, got robbed or medical emergencies.
9. Above all travel with an open mind, leave behind your worries and enjoy. Go by the plan and stick to it but donít forget to break it once in a while and enjoy where your instinct takes you.
