The Many Holidays of the Holiday Season

December 28, 2010 | Comments: 0 | Views: 53

Don't we all love a good holiday? Get away and relax. Here are a few tips for you when picking your next holiday as there are so many available and the competition for your hard earned cash is getting tougher.

Think about your destination. For example do you want to leave the country and head for somewhere sunny, or just stay in the UK. Think about the time it will take to travel and the effect it may have on your party. If you have children or pets then you may want to make it a couple of hours from home. If you don't mind the long haul then it will broaden your search.

What about the budget. Times are tight and think realistically about what you are prepared to spend. Factor in spending money, meals, new clothes, travel costs such as getting to the airport and emergencies. It can be more expensive than you realise when you add it all up. Although your holiday is important make sure you will have enough money left at the end of your journey to live before you get paid next!

Think about who is going. Do you have a large family with varying needs, or are you a couple? Does anyone in your party have special needs or requests such as a special diet? Do you want to take your dog on holiday? Will the kids need entertainment on an evening? Think about it carefully and make a list of the 'must have' items that you cannot do without.

Shop around. Look on the internet for the latest deals, consider how long it is until your planned holiday. If you are not going for a while - and you can stand the delay you may want to wait and get a last minute deal. However if you have a long list of needs when travelling then you may want to book in advance and be sure in the knowledge that your holiday is sorted out. Don't forget the high street. You can get some really good friendly holiday advice from your local travel agent. They are more likely to have the most up to date information, be able to give you their personal experiences and they have the personal touch if you have problems that need sorting out.

Lastly, make sure that if you book a package that the tour operator is ABTA registered so if they go bust then you can get your cash back. Another way is to pay by credit card as you get insurance from your credit card provider.

I hope you found this information useful, I have a dog friendly accommodation directory that has lots of UK places to stay if you specifically want to take your dog with you. Thank you for reading this article.
