Maximize your Vacation Days

Top 10 tricks that Maximize your Vacation Days

By traveldecorum | Others

Travelling has been a proven tool for introspection and soul stirring. Maximizing a vacation thus becomes a great reward every time. Who doesn’t like some quality time with their loved ones? Who doesn’t enjoy seeing new places on every holiday? And who doesn’t want the holiday to never end? If with some simple steps you can enjoy more, why not?

There are extremely smart tricks that will help you maximize your vacation days for you to travel more:

Book in advance
Book in advance

This is the simplest and most cost effective way to maximize your vacation. Planning and booking in advance will help you save money that in turn can be used for another micro vacation. All websites advise booking 4-5 months in advance and offer great deals and discounts each time. This hits two birds with one arrow. You save more and enjoy a longer trip too.

Don’t choose far away destinations in a single trip

You have to understand the idea of maximizing your vacation. If you book cities far away, you spend more time in transit and lesser time in the city itself, which will increase the length of your trip. Picking destinations closer or rather one at a time, will ensure a more satisfying vacation in a lesser number of days. When you look at vacationing more often in a year, this approach is needed.

Plan your holiday

Planning your itinerary will also maximize the number of days of your travel! You don’t have to visit every single tourist spot like all tourists. Making an itinerary with places that interest you and your fellow travellers is more important. This makes for more free time and you can take short but numerous vacations round the year.

Choose travel means appropriately

Choosing your means of travel is the most important part of your vacation. Taking a flight is much faster than choosing to drive down to another country. This is co-dependent on how early you plan the holiday. Even in the city, make use of public transport, which is cheaper and faster. Taking a taxi for everything might turn out way more costly.

Accommodation is critical
Accommodation is critical

Choose a hotel or city in the heart of the place. Don’t book an Air BnB that is far away in the town. You end up travelling for everything back and forth. A prime location accommodation is a must for maximizing your holiday days. All your time should go into absorbing the culture and vibe of the city and enjoying it. Even if it costs more, you end up saving a lot of money and time lost in transit.

Timing of the vacation is critical

If you are not finicky, an off season vacation will make sure you get the city to yourself and not share with other thronging visitors. No queues, lower flight fares and hotel prices, doesn’t it already sound like a better time to go? If the holiday destination is not extreme in climate, off-season is usually the best time to travel for shorter trips.

Take different kinds of trips
Take different kinds of trips

Not every holiday has to be detailed and long. Not every trip can be a micro vacation. Taking different types of trips in different types of cities and countries is often more refreshing than taking the same kind of holidays every time. E.g. Take a week long trip to Paris and a smaller itinerary based one to Bangkok. Changing up styles will maximize not only your vacation days but also change your outlook towards travelling.

Don’t stress
Don’t stress

Do not stress! I repeat, do not make it to be a bigger deal than a way to rejuvenate. If you stress and fall sick, the number of days will shrink within no time. Waste of money, time, and travel and of course the mood goes for a toss. You are taking a holiday to relax, unwind and see the world. Be open, positive and happy!

Turn a business trip into a holiday

If you travel for work, you are a lucky person! Combine your work trip with a day or two off to enjoy the city as well. You can combine a lot of free amenities and make the trip a more affordable one as well. With the rise in micro vacationing, this seems the perfect platform to enjoy and work together.

Prioritize

Travelling more each year is a commitment to self. So prioritize it! Which means you have to save more money for your budget, research more to know where you can go, choose co-travellers accordingly and lastly remain healthy so you can enjoy the whole process.

Travelling brings joy like nothing ever does. When you maximize your vacation days, imagine how much more you are gaining in return. These tricks may sound simple but when you apply them, you will know how drastically can you reform your travelling. With time being limited for all of us in this busy world, more travel brings with it something to look forward to. Try out the above-mentioned tricks and maximize your vacation like a pro-traveller.
