How will choose you the best honeymoon package?

The wedding season is on and you are about to taste its flavour soon. What next? Honeymoon? There can be no denying that. A lot has been already discussed on the choice of honeymoon destinations, but how one chooses the right honeymoon package obviously drives other things in place. There are a lot of options on cards and honeymooners, no doubt, latch on the first available package they find, either online or offline. Remember honeymoon is something that must be remembered for the right reasons.  Some of the initial questions that need to be answered in the planning phase: what type of travel do you prefer? What destinations suit you genre? What is your budget? What hotel or resort falls within your considerations and budget? If you can answer these questions, you are well on your way to your dream honeymoon.

What do you want out of your honeymoon?

From Europe to Hawaii, the Caribbean Islands to Las Vegas, there are a whole lot of honeymoon destinations to pick from. You need to decide first on the type of travel, what you want out of your honeymoon trip, then the rest of the things will fall in place. It must be noted that every destination will offer its unique feature: history, mysticism romance, adventure, thrill and other travel genres; sometimes a combination of one or two travel genres will turn out to be really cool.

In general, go for something that will offer varied travel experiences for your honeymoon vacation.

Destinations that’ll match your interest

Now that you have some idea on the type of honeymoon you are looking for, let us be more specific on the selecting the specific destination that will match your interest.  While there are some European vacations that offer the ability to travel multiple countries in a single trip, most travel packages are single-country or single-location based.  If you’ve decided to honeymoon on an island, research a bit on the local attractions around, traditional culture, language, foods and information on the beaches and the type of activities the place offers such as fishing, diving, sailing, or chilling on a lounge chair around the pool, enjoying the sun, etc.   There may be a few more questions, but let’s narrow down our focus to the basics.

How much is your travel spend?

Like most things in life, travel is decided on the basis of budget. How much are you willing to spend on your honeymoon trip? How many days have you planned to cover in your trip? This, more often than not, isn’t a difficult one as there are several resorts, hotels, tour operators, travel websites and app platforms all competing for some business space. All you need to do is refine your search a bit, either online or offline, and match your needs with the budget. Look for discounts and offers and check if the available packages cover meals, transportation, and entertainment at the hotel or resort. Some extra bucks will probably allow you to spend outside the all-inclusive travel package that you’ve selected.

Finding the right resort

If you have managed to answer the first three questions, then finding the best resort, hotel or accommodation is only a cinch. As we discussed earlier, it’s always considered a great idea to participate in social media interactions, travel forums, travel blogs, and other social networking sites to say what others have to say about a particular resort or hotel. Find out how from the experience of previous honeymooners on particular destinations; this will go a long way in helping you make the right decision and spice up your honeymoon trip.

 

 

 

How do you choose the right travel backpack for your next trip?

tour operators in coimbatoreTravelling around the world can be one of the finest experiences for most people, be it leisure, business or a combination of business and leisure lately known as ‘bleasure’. For most people it is all about passion and the thrill that comes out of their travel experience. Whatever, no bit of travel can be an ‘experience’ without planning it out well, and the even the best of the travel requires the right travel backpack, if not a lavishly expensive one. Here’s a quick few tips of things you should be aware in order to pick the right travel backpack:

 

Type:

There are tens of thousands of backpack models and types available in the marketplace
to choose from. Whether you choose a traditional backpack or a travel backpack with
wheels for mobility is up to you and your specific travel needs.

Size:

A travel backpack with a capacity of 40-80L will just do the thing if you’re plotting a 3-7
days personal or business trip.

Water-Resistant/Waterproof:

Check if your travel backpack comes with a water-resistant or waterproof material to
save your valuable contents from the effects of water, snow, or rain.

Multiple Compartments:

Going for a backpack with multiple compartments helps to keep your contents
organized, secure and prevent overflowing during travel.

Front-loading Compartment:

Those who do a lot of travel may well tell you that having a front-loading compartment in
your backpack can help you access your contents quickly and easily, especially when
you are on the move.

Straps:

Check for backpacks that are provided with chest straps, padded shoulder straps and
waist strips for higher level of comfort and greater convenience.

Laptop & Tablet compartment:

Any business traveller or tech-savvy traveller would tell you how important it’s to have a
compartment with sufficient padding and foam support for laptop, notebook, tablet PC,
chunky smartphones and other electronic devices.

Weight:

Empty backpack that weighs 2-4 pounds is good enough to carry reasonably huge
contents. If the weight is too heavy, the backpack can actually pull you backwards, and
this isn’t good news.

Raw Materials:

There is a good choice of materials for backpack to choose from depending upon your
budget. But Polyester and Nylon are found to be lightweight and highly water-resistant.

Price:

The price of any backpack may depend upon what your choice of brand is, functionality
and quality it delivers. Therefore, the price range of an average quality backpack may
fall between $50 and $100; if you are looking for premium quality backpacks, you may
have to shell out anything between $100 and $300.

You may add a few points to the ones listed above. However, if you consider these
factors, then you can get a reasonably priced travel backpack with satisfactory quality.
Remember that quality always has a price tag attached and premium quality backpacks
may burn your pockets.

Ten biggest travel mistakes and how to avoid them

Whether you are a frequent flyer, globetrotter, business traveller or on a bon voyage, there are a few mistakes that can happen, either intentionally or deliberately, which may put you on a spot. Check out these 10 big travel mistakes you may commit, and learn how you can avoid them from happening in the first place.

Overstuffing your travel bag

Does this seem tempting to you? Yes, for all reasons, it may. But think of carrying and hauling your luggage around you, and the frightening weight limit haunts you forever. Be judicious, and plan your outfit accordingly — as simple as that! Ask yourself if you are going to wear them all. If not, go out and do some laundry you find on the road.

Failing to check your mobile plan

How often do we do that? Have you any measure of your data roaming fees? Does your mobile plan cover data roaming? Do you forget to turn off your data before getting on the plane?  Is your phone set on airplane mode? If data is of utmost importance to you, you need to check international plans or go for a local SIM card at your destination.

Failing to have enough buffer time in between flights for booking

Nothing can get so unpredictable as the flight conditions or your flight booking status. If your flight is delayed, your Adrenaline rushes, and you might not make it in time to catch the connecting flight. Sounds familiar? The point is to exercise precaution, and have a cosy buffer in between. It is advisable that you plan with a buffer time of minimum 2 hours every time, lest you need to go through endless security measures while moving from one flight to another.

Not having enough local currency

Have some local currency and cash on hand to avail for public transportation or for taking a cab once you arrive at your destination.  Don’t be of the idea that every little shop in the planet accepts Credit card. Most don’t, therefore, you will find that airport ATMs offer better exchange rates. Take out cash as required, and maybe, even a wee extra during emergency situations.

Failing to inform your credit card company of your travel plans before hand

This can get serious when your credit card company may well flag foreign transactions, and consequently freeze your account. Now what? Ensure you inform your company before hand of your travel plans, and check out if you are charged anything for foreign transactions.  This may not surprise you later!

Don’t have Travel Insurance?

There are times when you don’t hit your vacation or business trip, as expected. If you are covered by travel insurance, it will help your running out of hundreds of dollars. Check if your plan also covers contingency medical expenses, supposing your health insurance plan fails to offer coverage outside your country.

Not Checking Visa Requirements

We have seen, on numerous occasions, of travellers being whooshed away at checkpoints overseas on account of incompliance to visa requirements.  This is rather time-consuming, off-putting, and expensive, and could play spoilsport of what would have been a memorable trip. There are a host of websites online that elucidates travel visa requirements for several countries. Google, and find them out;  don’t be in for any surprises.

Jam-packed schedule

Scheduling an overseas trip shouldn’t be like overstuffing your belly or over-packing your travel luggage. Trust the locals, Google and find out the must-visit touring spots, and give quality travel time in visiting those places to make the most of your trip. More importantly, relax and enjoy the moment as it comes along.

Failing to keeping track of your reservation details

‘Go digital’ is today’s mantra, and go for web and mobile travel apps that can help plan your itinerary, or online reminder apps. Business travellers are more agile and dynamic in their approach towards itinerary planning. It pays to be a bit tech savvy? Isn’t it

Failing to keep your valuables safe

The last thing you would want in a travel is theft of your valuables, cash or electronic gadgets. Therefore, avoid carrying too much cash, and again — take the digital payment way. Anti-theft bags may help; but then, it is your safety that matters most.
