Preparing For Your Most Extravagant Holiday Yet


Part of the love of travelling is in the adventure, of climbing that mountain and exploring that wilderness. However, at some point in your life, you deserve to truly spend some time getting pampered with an experience that is truly world-class. The luxury holiday is no longer reserved for just the ultra-rich. At the same time, you have to make sure that you’re not falling for the “luxury” label that so many providers like to put on holidays that are anything but.

Get away from the crowds
You probably already have a bucket list of all the places you might one day like to see. However, there’s a good chance that a lot of them are going to be huge tourist traps. In these locations, luxury hotels get even more expensive and the experience you pay so much to see can often be a little ruined by the sheer volume of people crowding the trip. If you want a gorgeous holiday where you’re truly surrounded idyllic beauty, consider some of the lesser-visited city break spots in Europe. Just because a spot isn’t famous doesn’t mean it doesn’t have gorgeous architecture, top quality service, and weather worth enjoying.

Don’t forget about the trip itself
When choosing and preparing for a destination, make sure you think about how you’re actually going to get there. Flying might be the choice for most of you, but how long is that flight going to be? If you only have 5 days or a week to enjoy your holiday, then you don’t want to be travelling somewhere so far that you spend an entire day moving from plane to train and back again. Meanwhile, if you choose a short-haul destination, you have a lot more time to actually soak up the experience.

Give yourself more cash to splash
The greatest barrier that stands between many travellers and the truly extravagant experience is cost. But there are a lot of ways of cut down the costs of a holiday. You can immediately afford a lot more if you look at secure loans and pick the one that works the best for you. That way, you don’t need to spend as much time saving up for the holiday, you can just pay for it after. If you want a top-class hotel, for instance, you should consider populating the rest of your itinerary with sights that are free by doing your research in advance so you don’t need a tour guide. It’s always worth considering going in the off-season, as well.

Take the word “luxury” with a grain of salt
A packaged luxury holiday is something to be treated with scepticism. Same for hotels that list themselves as “luxury”. Make sure you get a good look at the amenities on offer before you fall for the marketing. Your idea of luxury might be a spa and room service, whereas the hotel owner’s idea might be an extra bathrobe. If you want to take the inconvenience out of having to plan the vacation out yourself, there are bespoke holiday providers who get a lot deeper into the particulars of the trip than your average package travel agent.

It takes a lot of planning ahead and smart budgeting to really get the luxury holiday experience without totally breaking the bank. The tips above should get you a lot closer to that once-in-a-lifetime trip.
