We’re only a few days into 2018 and some people will have already broken one or more of their New Year’s resolutions. However, we’ve come up with a selection of simple, travel-related resolutions that are easy to adopt and will help you enhance your travel experiences over the next 12 months. If you have a passion for travel, why not think about adopting any of these bits of advice?
Stop Putting It Off
Whether you want to label it as a ‘Bucket List’ or not, we all have a record of the places that we want to travel most – either mentally stored away or physically written down. However, there’s no point outlining those amazing destinations that you really want to see if you keep putting off when you are going to make the trip. Why not make 2018 the year you finally take the plunge and book that holiday of a lifetime you have always dreamed of?
Set Your Taste Buds Free
It may be a bit of a stereotype that British people like to stick to what they know when abroad, but we can all admit that there’s some truth in it. Whether that means searching out the nearest Red Lion pub or scanning the menu for chicken and chips wherever you go, it can be hard to try something new – especially if you don’t know what anything is. Make this the year you branch out and sample some of the local cuisine. There is so much great food out there ready to tickle your taste buds.
Use All Your Allotted Holiday
On the whole, Britons are pretty good at ensuring we use up our holiday entitlement every year, but there are still many people out there who choose not to use all of their paid holiday days. Sometimes it is unavoidable but if you’re looking to improve your work life balance in 2018 then this is a great place to start. Even if you book a short break in the UK or take the odd day off to enjoy a theatre show, it’s much better than giving up your allotted holiday.
See Somewhere New
There’s no harm in going back to somewhere you love, but maybe it’s time to diversify your holiday destinations. There is so much to see and do around the world that it seems strange to limit yourself to certain countries or even regions. Never been to Asia? Perhaps a trip to Japan is on the cards in 2018. Yet to explore the USA? Why not treat yourself to a New York city break. Haven’t tried cruising? Take to the waves in 2018 and see multiple countries in one trip.
Take Advantage Of Travel Agent Expertise
We all have the power to be travel agents in this day and age. Just a few taps in various apps and you can book your next trip in minutes. However, this all means that you miss out on the valuable, first-hand experience and insight that a professional travel agent can offer. Whether it’s knowing the best hotels, recommending some great hidden gems to seek out, providing you with financial peace of mind or saving you money on your booking, the advice of someone who knows the industry and destinations inside out is always helpful.
Above all, make 2018 a great year by getting out and seeing the world. After all, travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer. If you would like us to help you keep any of the above resolutions, call us on 0800 021 3237.
