Summer Travel Tips
Elite Travel By Sarah
Select a Unique Destination
If you're looking for a truly memorable experience this summer, look at destinations that are less visited by tourists. The most popular hot spots will be over-crowded, noisy, and more stressful than relaxing. Opt for the path less traveled and discover what may be your new favorite destination!
(Ask me about what private travel options are available for you!)
This year we have seen an uptick in flight delays and cancelations, causing many travelers to miss their connecting flights, cruises, and special events. When choosing flights, pick the earliest one in the day, and if you need to be somewhere important, plan to get there a day ahead.
Think t-shirts, tennis shoes, shorts, and sundresses! Be sure to pack light weight, loose fitting clothing that you can wear comfortably all day. And remember to pack for the type of adventure you're taking. Packing for a cruise to Alaska looks a lot different than packing for a week in Hawaii.
No matter where you're going, be sure you have plenty of this essential item with you! Nothing ruins a perfectly good vacation like sunburn... and the long-term effects could be even worse. Apply early, and then reapply throughout the day, as often as necessary.
Remember to bring your (reusable) water bottle with you everywhere you go! The sun and hot weather will wear you out quickly- combat this by staying hydrated! And remember, iced coffee, smoothies, and adult beverages will not hydrate you! Be sure to consume lots and lots of water!
Get Travel Insurance
You will be investing a lot of time and money in your travels- don't lose it all in the event of an emergency. Different plans will cover different situations such as health, missed flights, and much more. Your travel planner can assist you in finding a plan that meets the needs of your trip.
Travel is stressful no matter where you're going or how often you do it. You will likely run into some snags along the way. Summer, in particular, is the busiest time of the year for the travel and tourism industry. Airports are over crowded and understaffed, but they are doing they best they can to accommodate all travelers. School is out and there will be children everywhere, all with more energy than you (they might even be your own!) Excursions and events are booking quickly, and lines for everything are long. Take a deep breath and remember that this is normal for summer travel. If this isn't what you're looking for, just think, Fall is right around the corner! 🙂
