What are your resolutions for 2017? Everyone makes the one about eating better and exercising. How about some resolutions to make travel easier or plan a new adventure?
Here are some ideas for making travel resolutions
Develop a savings plan
Beginning in January, start a travel fund and add to it weekly or monthly as you can. At the end of each quarter look at how much you’ve managed to save and find ways to save even more. The reward is a vacation you can take without putting extra stress on your budget.
Don’t let your passport expire
Check your passport often enough that you know when the expiration date is. If you need help renewing, talk to us and we can get your passport in as little as 24 hours.
Challenge yourself to travel light
On your next trip, instead of packing everything you “might” need, consider packing only what you will actually need. You know you’re pretty much going to be the same pair of shoes for exploring your destination in the day.
Get your International driver’s permit
Why be at the mercy of the bus or taxi schedules? Get an IDP and you can see the country you’re visiting on your own terms. There is no driving test required. If you’re interested in getting your own IDP, talk to us, we can assist you.
Scour travel deal sites
Sites like Expedia, Orbitz, and other deal sites are great for finding bargains on travel, including rental cars, and hotels. Once you get some money socked back, sign up to receive emails with deals. You might get a last minute deal to Mexico or another exotic locale for a song.
Those are just a few ideas, what are your travel resolutions for 2017?
