When planning the perfect vacation, several factors can impact how your trip plays out. As with any vacation, travelers must be aware of factors that may affect their destination including weather, government or political issues, travel requirements and local rules and regulations. These factors become very important when traveling to a foreign country.
Factors that are out of your control must be planned around, and it is your job to be informed. Choosing a travel consultant to assist you can serve to help you be better informed as to your destination and those factors that will certainly impact your vacation. Bill Bailey Travel Club would like to offer you some tips on travel and staying informed while traveling abroad.
When planning the ultimate getaway, you should start planning early, at least 6 months in advance of your trip. The following tips will help you plan the perfect vacation. Ask yourself what you are looking for and what you expect from your trip and then build it to fit your parameters.
1. What are the seasonal differences? Is it rainy in one part of the year and dry in the other? If so, the destination will have a main season for travel when you may expect to see many more vacationers and higher prices. Destinations such as Costa Rica have a wet season and a dry season. During the dry season, prices are increased, temperature is increased and space is at a premium in the larger cities. You may choose to sacrifice space to be assured of a more pleasant weather pattern, the choice is yours, and it is important that you choose based on activities you enjoy.
2. What activities are there to enjoy? If you enjoy the outdoors, look into adventure tours in the area. They cost, but if you are unfamiliar with the area, letting a guide help you may further enhance y our vacation.
3. What are the accommodations like? Do you prefer luxury 5 star resorts, catering to your every whim or do you prefer the rustic charm of local, smaller accommodations? There is nothing worse than expecting one thing and getting something totally different when you arrive. Be sure to research your accommodations thoroughly.
4. What paperwork is required for our visit? Is the area part of the United States, a commonwealth, or a separate country? If your destination is out of the country, you MUST make sure that your passport is up to date, that you have made a copy and stored it in a safe place and that you have all other documents required including Visa’s if necessary.
5. Are there any travel warnings or alerts to the area? The U.S. government issues warnings and alerts when situations abroad may impact U.S. citizens traveling to the area. Be sure to research the area and those situations that may impact you.
