It’s Time to Travel


As the weather begins to warm up, thoughts of spending leisure time away from home frolicking with loved ones quickly begin to flood our minds and worry our spirits. Especially if we failed to begin our vacation planning months ago. Most people start planning their dream summer vacation during the winter months when demand for the best hotel and cheapest flights is lower, and there are many options to choose from. For those who didn’t plan early but still need a getaway - don’t despair. There is still hope for a great vacation without breaking the bank. Keep these tips in mind.

Even if discretionary income is not a concern for you, first and foremost, a vacation budget should be established. Determining what you can afford and want to spend is the necessary foundation for all the other decisions that must be made regarding your vacation. Next, determine the destination and dates. Determining the destination will heavily influence your mode of transportation. Travel arrangements that require a departure within a short number of days generally have low availability and are more costly. It is very important to be flexible and patient as you work to secure these arrangements. Make a list of several ideal locations and dates, and patiently research your options. If you are flying to your destination, remember that departing a day earlier or later or from a nearby airport may be a cheaper option.

Whether your travels take you near or far this summer, I hope you enjoy some quality time away from the rat race, resting, relaxing, and rejuvenating.
