Enjoying every moment of a holiday doesn’t come naturally, because we believe that from the moment you book said holiday, it all begins. Your excitement starts to build, and if you’ve booked a sort of last minute holiday, you might not even have that long to wait until you’re on that plane! So, if your holiday begins before it even truly starts, then we know you’re going to feel some stress. However, as long as you take your time to plan properly, like we’re going to talk you through today, you’ll be able to enjoy every moment of even the most stressful parts! Booking a holiday should be an all round exciting time, because you know for sure that you’re getting away from the daily grind of life, and you’re experiencing a country that you perhaps haven’t been to before. But, do you think we make the most of every moment whilst we’re there? No, sometimes we just don’t, which is why we’re here to help. No holiday should be wasted, but sometimes, some holiday’s really are. So, if you have a read of the advice below, you’ll see how we think you can make the most of every moment on your next adventure.

Make The Most Of The Planning Stage

The planning stage of it all is the most exciting part in our eyes. You might not even be close to going, but you’ll still have that little buzz inside of you that will leave your itching to get on that plane. But, as we’ve said, the planning process along with the airport is actually the most stressful time. So, here’s how we think you can do it right. First of all, take into consideration how long you’re going for, where your destination is, whether you’re all inclusive, and what you would like to do when you get there. This will build you a clear understanding of how much money you need to take, which is a really big factor when trying to plan your holiday. We would say that the last thing you want to do is take out the wrong about of money, but you can always use the ATM machines whilst you’re there to withdraw more if your calculations are out. However, you just don’t want to make the mistake of not planning to take enough, and not having enough in your bank to ensure that you can withdraw some whilst you’re out there. But, if you do find you’re struggling to calculate how much you will need, you can always use one of the travel money calculators on the internet. They’ll give you a rough guide of what you need, so all you’ll need to do is add a little bit extra on in case of emergencies.

You also need to make sure you’re planning your stay if you really want to make the most of things. Find out what there is to do in the area that you’re staying in, as well as the wider areas that you could go and visit. We do believe that the best holiday is a combination for a holiday is a mix of relaxation, and getting out and about. So, if you’re going for a week, try and do something outside of the beach and the hotel pool for at least three of those days. That way, you won’t feel like you wasted your holiday doing nothing, or even wasted it by doing too much! If you are going to fill your holiday with a lot of excursions, or even anything at all for that matter, you should always make sure you’re getting yourself travel insurance. Even if your plan was to stay by the pool all day, all it would take is for you to slip over and bang your head, and you could have medical bills going through the roof. So, just always make sure you’re being careful with this!

Make The Most Of The Airport

The airport is definitely something we all struggle to make the most of. Instead, we spend most of our time rushing around it, wishing it would all be over, and hoping that you don’t experience any sort of delay. But, the airport is a necessary evil, and there are ways that you can really enjoy it. The first is to make sure that you’re getting there with plenty of time. Even if it means you’re a few hours before your flight, it cuts out that element of rush that you usually have to deal with. Because even if you arrive within just enough time, you might not factor for the queues when checking in your bag, or the airport security queues. So, arrive there a few hours before, and breeze through it all. Always make sure you’re triple checking that you have absolutely everything before you head the airport, or your holiday may never go any further. So, once you’re through the madness, it’s time to relax. If you really want to relax, why not head to one of the airport lounges, if the airport you’re travelling to has one. They’re perfect for relaxing, and you get such good value for money. You can have anything you want in there, from food to spirits, and only have to pay a small entrance fee. Considering how expensive airport food and drinks are, you might as well go for the option where you can have as much as you want, for next to nothing compared to what you would have if you were to just try the food and drink places that are dotted around the airport.

Make The Most Of The Hotel

As soon as you get to the hotel, your excitement peaks. Everything you see will be new to you, as long as you’ve never been there before, so all you will want to do is run to your room and check out the pool. If you’ve arrived early and you can’t be checked into your room, leave your bags with the hotel and go and explore the area. It’ll be good for you to get a feel for where you are, and to know what local amenities are close by. Once your room is ready for you, take some time to actually relax in the hotel room. Even if it’s that you’re just spending an hour lying down, to really unwind after your journey. Then, it’s up to you what you do. If you’re all inclusive, exploring the hotel restaurants might be on the agenda. Or, you could just be itching to get to the pool and chill out even more. To make the most of the hotel, you just need to sink into the atmosphere. Take every relaxing moment in, and appreciate the fact that you’re lying on a sun lounger, and not behind your desk at work. It’s then that you will truly be able to make the most of the hotel.

Make The Most Of The Excursions

Excursions are easily one of the most exciting parts of your holiday, or at least we think so anyway. It’ll take you away from that hotel or beach environment, and will give you a sense of adventure that you might not have had before. So, you should have already done your planning before your travels, but if not, the hotel you’re staying at should be able to help you. If you’re going to Indonesia, or even just a Mediterranean country, then we really would recommend going snorkelling or scuba diving. A lot of the places you’ll travel to will offer it, and the underwater experience you’ll have will be amazing. If you want to make to even better, have a look at the Ninja Shark masks, and see if you can grab yourself one before you go. They’re a great little suitcase addition, and make the whole snorkelling process so much more fun! We also recommend that you do island tour trips, if the country you’re travelling to has them. It’s one of the best ways to see your location, with a guided tour, and fill yourself with knowledge. Some of the spots they’ll take you to will either be beautiful or historical, so they should all be really fun! Just make sure you’re going to the right place to book your excursions. The last thing you want is to be ripped off by one place, when somewhere down the road will offer it cheaper. So just take a day to explore your options before rushing into anything.

Make The Most Of The Food

It’s hard not to make the most of the food. In fact, if people go on holiday, the thing they look forward to most is stuffing their faces as much as they can, every single day. But, we would recommend that you make the most of the food in the local area. We get why you wouldn’t want to eat out if you’re all inclusive, but snacking is something you could do. If you’re heading to Spain, you could try a bit of tapas. It’s so cheap, and won’t feel like you’re wasting the hotel food. If you’re going to Indonesia, you could try a smoothie bowl, which Bali is famous for, or you could try a local Warung. It’s all about getting your money’s worth, whilst also giving yourself a local treat.
