There is nothing more exciting than booking a holiday and if you are planning to do some research before you head on your next one, you are in the right place.
A booking to a new holiday destination is not supposed to be a stressful thing to do.
You should be able to have a lot of fun with it, and that means doing all that you can to make the process of booking you next time away easy.
Well, as easy as possible, anyway!
You deserve to take a holiday. You deserve to stop salivating over those Jordan tours and actually book one for a change.
It doesn’t even matter where you end up, you’re going to be able to make the most of your time away when you have all of the essentials checked off your boxes!
So, with this mind, here are seven essentials for your next holiday.
Pick where you want to go
The first and most essential step is to chuck a dart at a map and decide where you’re going to go!
You should choose somewhere that really gets you excited; you want to know that your destination of choice is going to fit your interests and your budget, and it’s so much easier to do that when you know where you are headed. Make lists – you’ll need them.
Get the timing right
There are specific times of the year that you want to book your holiday so that you don’t clash with other tourists: we get it!
You want to be able to enjoy it without feeling like you’re being crowded. Plan your trip and your packing around the season because you won’t find summer clothes in the winter anymore than you’ll find knitwear in July!
Plan it properly
Down to the experiences and the restaurants, you need to plan this whole trip properly if you want it to be a stress free experience. For example, if you want the best seafood in Myrtle Beach when you get there, do your research and book restaurants in advance.
You need to know all about the tours available, the shows you can see and more. If you only have 3 days in Rome, for example, then you’ll want to pack as much in as possible so plan ahead.
If you’re struggling with confidence when traveling, try reciting any of these travel affirmations to overcome any fears you may have.
Give yourself a budget
While in your head you might be affording a Disney holiday, there’s no use planning a champagne holiday on a sparkling water budget, right? Know your money before you get all excited and you’ll know where you’re going with it.
Your excursions, hotels and your travel in between planes should all be booked in advance. You don’t have to worry about anything when you get there if you do this, and you’ll be ready to get going the moment you arrive!
From your bag for the plane to the bag that you use on arrival, you need to pack in advance so that you know exactly what you’re going to need when you arrive.
Make sure that you check the rules on flying with liquids from your airline, too. You need to make sure that there are no delays!

Don’t forget – you need confirmation
Keep a wedge of confirmations for every trip and every hotel booking. You need them and you’ll thank yourself later.
