Do you feel like going on holiday? Yes – who doesn’t? We both are lucky that we do have the possibility to go on holiday this year. Jasmin was already in Budapest and in India for two weeks. And Beatrice has just booked everything necessary for her holiday in summer – this year she is going to Corsica and back to her beloved Sardinia. Although we are not a Travelblog, but still traveling a lot, we thought we would give you some travel tips that we always fall back on when we want to travel:
A good preparation is the alpha and omega. And we do not mean that you have to plan every day from 8 o’clock in the morning to 22 o’clock in the evening, but rather that you book important things, such as flights or hotels as early as possible. Not only that it’s then usually cheaper, you get thereby an inner peace, so you can confidently look forward to the rest of the journey.
- Copy important documents
Sometimes you get a reservation confirmation sent by e-mail, so it is completely sufficient if you have it on the smartphone. Sometimes you have to print the PDF file. We have learned that it is best to print out every reservation and every booking confirmation and collect it in a folder. So you have everything together – nice, if the confirmation by mobile phone is sufficient, if not, then you have no problem!
- Pack early enough
The good, old topic … you either pack too much or too little – too warm or too cold. It’s best to take a quick look at the weather forecast for the time of your trip and think about some outfits then. Last year we flew to Scotland only with carry-on luggage and since we thought about what clothes to bring, the luggage was more than enough. To be honest we still had enough space to shop in Scotland. 😉
- Do not lose your nerve
No matter how well you plan ahead or how long you book flights before, there can always be something in between. As a small example: Jasmin’s family wanted to fly away and the flight was cancelled. It is important not to lose your nerve in such moments. At Flightright, you can read about what rights you are entitled to if your flight is delayed or even canceled completely. What happens if you miss your connecting flight or you are forced to transfer.
But the most important thing is that you try to make the most of your journey, no matter what happens. Use the holiday to switch off a bit of everyday stress and maybe we all could need a bit of social media detox too.
