Don’t Come Up Short on Your Getaways
So you can increase your odds of having more fun on your next getaway, focus on the following:
- Plan – You may take a spur-of-the-moment trip. If so, odds are there will be a fair amount of planning at the last minute. That said, more of your getaways will likely be planned out further ahead of time. As such, you can increase the chances of getting all the reservations you want. You can also increase the odds of saving money. By planning further ahead, more times than not, you save added dollars. For example, you may be looking for Disney World ticket reservations. If such reservations are on your list of needs, you want to make them sooner than later. In planning, you can take some of the stress of travelling away. That is, no matter how long you plan to go and where you’ll be heading.
- Learn from previous getaways – Being educated on previous getaways is a good thing. With that in mind, you do not want to repeat any mistakes you may have made in past times. For example, repeatedly using an airline you have had one or more bad experiences does not make much sense. Also, consider any hotels you’ve stayed in that you did not like. Is there a particular place you have visited you did not enjoy much? If so, are you willing to go back there or try other options? In learning from prior trips, you can often avoid disappointment the next time.
- Be surrounded by fun people – Unless you plan to travel alone, odds are you will have others with you. With that thought in mind, surround yourself with fun people. Nothing can destroy a getaway more than having unhappy people around you. In no time at all, they can bring you down. If that occurs, so much for having a fun time while away.
- Focus on having fun – Last, do not let work and other responsibilities get in the way. The goal should always be to tell yourself fun is the name of the game. Don’t take work with you and get distracted all too often. This is especially true if you have any young children who are on a getaway with you. Don’t ruin their fun by being sidetracked by your work laptop, cell phone, etc.
As you look at improving your next trip, what will it take to get the most out of it?
