Here are the tips to make your New Year trip wonderful as it should be.
According to one survey, 51% of Americans are likely to travel on the eve of New Year. Or you say that traveling is a favorite activity for most Americans to kick-start their year. If you are one of those Americans, you must be excited to celebrate your New Year away from a home. After all, the positives of traveling add to your NY celebration. Right? But there are some potential spoilers down the road. Maybe you missed the flight. Maybe you end up at a dilapidated hotel room. Or what if you fell sick (god forbid)? This way, you just struggle to manage the things instead of enjoying the celebration on a destination.
To keep such hassles at a bay, here are the tips to make your New Year trip wonderful.
1. Buy Your Flight in Advance as Possible:
You should book your flight in advance as possible. Don’t wait for the last minute. This is because flights booked within three days of take-off are 40% more expensive than booking made in advance. Try to book your flight at least 50 days in advance. For international flights, booking should be made two months before the departure. Besides, book local transportation like taxi service, airport transfer, and Private shuttle service in advance.
2. Create an Itinerary:
An itinerary is a travel plan which houses all of the travel information like flight information, ground transport information, hotel, reservation number, places to see and other important details. If it’s a long trip, create a copy of this plan and leave with your trusted friend or relative. This will be useful if you get into trouble or don’t arrive back on your expected time.
3. Choose the Right Hotel:
A hotel is your home away from home. Therefore, make sure to choose the right one. While there are plenty of options to choose from, always look for the location, amenities, testimonials,
- Check the amenities like AC, parking, Wi-Fi,
- Check the location using Google Map. It would help you determine its distance from attractions, dining options, shopping, and other points of interest on foot.
- Check how many positive users’ reviews the hotel has.
- Last but not the least—check out the deals and discount available on the hotel.
4. Be Mindful of your Packing:
No matter if it’s your first trip or you’re an experienced globetrotter, it’s always useful to pack right, pack smart. First of all, create a list of the required things for travel.
From clothes, camera, devices to personal care products, makes sure to pack according to the trip. For example, packing for a beach trip would be different than those for a hiking trip. Avoid putting every kind of stuff into your bags. Take only what you will really require. For example, rather than packing a new outfit for each day, you can mix and match the items into multiple outfits. Here is a tip—three pairs of shoes and three tops for every bottom. Don’t forget to pack your toiletries, documents, and medications.
5. Keep the Cash (Local Currency) Handy:
There are many nations where cash is still a primary mode of payment. You will need local currency to for cab rides or transportation. Some local markets may not accept your credit cards. Top of that, calculating exchange rates with the locals can be stressful. This is why you should carry local currency. You can get them at the ATM or currency exchange at the airport.
6. Take Care of Your Diet:
Yeah, it’s New Year and it’s a time to get indulge into a gastronomical experience. There would be a lot of food and drink on the board. If you don’t want to wake up with bloated stomach or hangover, take care of your diet. In other words, don’t go overboard with everything. Unhealthy foods or poor eating habits can make you sick. Heavy drinking can take a toll on your ability to think clearly and decision making, thereby making you vulnerable. Here are some tips for healthy eating on your trip.
- Minimize the intake of junk foods, sweets, and alcohol in excess.
- Take a balanced diet. If you will be doing outdoor activities, plan for high energy, protein-rich diet.
- Drink 8-10 glass of water a day to stay hydrated.
With the help of these tips, you can make your New Year trip as amazing as it should be. Happy New Year in advance and have a great journey!
