Getting Organised Can Save You From Travel Headaches

Travelling can be full of stress, especially if you're booking for more than one person, or your family. This guide, along with our Top 5 Resources for Travelers guide, will help you plan stress free travels time and time again.  Most of this comes from personal experience and le know what you arning from mistakes! 

It's never too early to book your holiday.  If you want and where to want to go, then book it as soon as you can.  The earlier you book it, the more time you have to get organised and it's usually the best way to save money.  At least 60 days in advance is best, but if you're travelling during holidays, want to use airmiles or want to choose a seat, then try to make it 6-9 months in advance.

Okay, starting with flights, it's best to use a flight comparison site like Opodo.  If you're using airmiles, book through the website, otherwise use Opodo.  Same with a hotel; using a comparison site early will usually ensure you get a room with features you want (smoking or blacony, for example) at a good price.  Booking these very early ensures stress free travel.  

Ideally, when you've been on a previous trip, you'll vaguely remember what you used (not what you brought, because I'm guessing you only used about half of it. Yeah, I'm guilty!) so you can make a list.  Do this in a speadsheet document or other tick-able list.  Make another one for things you need to do before you go.  This includes buying guide books, or researching the place you're going. 

Reading a guide book before you go is recommended.  Make a note of the places you'd like to eat at, or what you'd like to see.  Go on museum and art gallery websites and book tours before you go.  Keep the itinerary and payment sheets with your travel documents in a colourful folder. 

All this should ensure a stress free trip, with nothing left to worry about! Got any tips? Leave them in the comments!
