Vacation Planning Tips: 5 Ways to Upgrade
It’s that time of the year where you are getting ready to book your holiday.
You’ve been browsing the web looking through countless destinations getting excited as soon you’ll be going away for a week or two.
However, on this occasion you want that little bit more oomph to your holiday, maybe you’ve had a pay rise, or you’ve been saving up for a little longer to make this a dream vacation.
Below are 5 vacation planning tips to take upgrade your vacation.
Treat Yourself to a 5-star Hotel
When organizing your vacation, it can be tempting to stay in an Airbnb to save money or potentially look at a hotel with 4 stars or below. This is not wrong at all, but for those wanting to upgrade their vacation, why not treat yourself to a 5-star hotel?
What says luxury more than concierge service, luxury products, a plush robe, and a beautifully made bed (with a pillow menu of course)!?! Most 5-stars hotels will provide the ultimate relaxing experience and go the extra mile to make sure your stay goes beyond your expectations.
Book Into An Airport Lounge
Most vacations start at the airport, right? The excitement of getting on the plane and landing at your chosen holiday destination. This is the perfect opportunity to go the extra mile and treat yourself to an airport lounge at your terminal. Most lounges include food and drink where you can relax and cheers with a glass of fizz in anticipation of your upcoming trip. What a great way to get you and your friends/family ready for the week ahead.
Add an Unforgettable Excursion
So, you are staying in a 5-star hotel and have started your journey in a lounge – how could your vacation possibly get any better? We’ve got just the thing, book an unforgettable excursion! Why not try something that may stretch the budget but goes the extra mile and that you may have always dreamed of doing? Opt for sky diving, a hot air balloon ride, dolphin watching, or even ATV driving. Don’t go overboard but make some of your dreams come true – after all, you’re on vacation!
Arrive in Style
Instead of arriving in a taxi or shared bus, why not book a limo service? Imagine turning up to your 5-star resort hotel and getting out of a luxury limo – it’s the perfect way to start your vacation. If traveling with a large group, why not split the cost making it more affordable for everyone? There’s no better way to take in the sights of your new destination.
Dine In Style
If you have ever wanted to dine in an award-winning restaurant – maybe a Michelin star, this is the time to do so. Think about booking your chosen restaurant near the end of your break so that you have something to look forward to. No matter the cuisine, you’ll be sure to find something to suit everyone’s tastebuds. Just make sure you book in advance because the more famous the restaurant is the more likely it will be booked up and we wouldn’t want you to miss out.
