When you’re going away, whether it be with a big group, your other half or on a solo trip, it’s important to be organized. This means you can get the most out of your trip and see everything you want to without missing anything important. As well as having the right things in place such as travel insurance (be sure to get this from a reputable company such as Generali) you want to know what you’re doing when on your trip. In this article, we explore just how you can plan a winning itinerary that ensures you’ll make the most of your time.
Set a budget and include extra for any incidentals
When building your itinerary, there are many things you’ll likely want to do and include. To ensure you can afford it, set a budget for what you want to spend on the different items. Factor in things such as tickets for attractions, food and drink and accommodation as well as any unexpected costs and incidentals. The last thing you want is to run out of money and not be able to do all you want to.
Be realistic with how many things you do in a day
When building an itinerary it’s easy to get over excited and try to cram in too many things. With so many activities to do, it can be tempting to pack in as much as possible, but this isn’t the best thing to do. Not only can it leave you feeling exhausted and not able to appreciate it to the full, but also you might end up missing things with them being too close together in the schedule.
Research how you’re going to get around
Depending on the place you’re going, the way you get from A to B could differ. Think about if you’re going to want to hire a taxi if you’re going somewhere remote or if there are many places you want to explore. If you’re in a city, you could get the metro or underground, bus or Uber. Have a think about what you want to spend and the best mode for the activities you’re going to be doing when you’re there. If there are five or fewer of you, hiring a car will be a lot cheaper as it can be split between you all.
These are just a few top tips for how you can plan a winning itinerary for your next trip away. No matter how long you’re going away or who you’re with, having it sorted out will ensure you don’t miss any activities you want to do and can really make the most of your time. It can be tricky fitting everything in so by scheduling things ahead of time you can make a plan that works logistically and with the time you’re there for.
