Most people don’t have fun planning a trip but they do have fun traveling. Arranging the logistics of any trip can be complex and mentally intimidating. The following tips will give you all the help you need to plan an enjoyable trip.
Create a pre-flight plan with your children. Before you even get to the airport, try to give them a good mental picture of what they will go through. A good idea is to also make sure one adult goes in front of the children, so they know what they can expect. Be sure that you stay close to the children so they are comforted by your presence.
Always wrap presents after you have finished your flights. TSA will randomly inspect packages thus ruining the nice wrapping job. Rather than doing this, you should pack some wrapping paper sheets, or simply purchase some paper when you arrive at your destination.
Don’t read travel emails that you didn’t personally request. Unless you’ve opted into an email list about travel, just mark as spam and delete any such emails you receive.
Be prepared before you go camping and/or hiking by obtaining maps of where you are going. And make sure they are with you at all times. You may also want to bring a compass or GPS device, just in case you find yourself lost.
Even if the hotel you wanted to stay at is booked solid, you might be able to score an out-of-service room. Rooms with minor repair issues, such as a dirty carpet or peeling wallpaper, may be considered out of service.
Prior to booking your hotel you should read reviews of the different resorts or hotels you are considering. Reading traveler reviews can give you some sense of what to expect and what to avoid. This can prevent a bad experience on your dream vacation.
If you are driving to a port city before leaving on a cruise, always find a hotel that offers free parking and arrive the night before. If you cannot find any details about parking, ask the hotel staff what their policy is.
