If you’re planning to take a trip, why not push the boat out and travel in style? Whether you’re organising a hen weekend or you’re celebrating a landmark birthday or anniversary, there are plenty of ways you can make your holiday more memorable.
Eliminating airport stress
We’ve all been there. There’s a massive queue to get through security, it’s hot, people are getting irritable, and the clock is ticking. Nobody wants to start their holiday feeling stressed or having to sprint to make the gate before it closes. To eliminate airport stress, make sure you arrive on time and consider treating yourself to a VIP experience. You could choose meet and greet parking, invest in fast track to breeze past the lines, or take yourself away from the hustle and bustle of cafes and packed duty free shops and live the high life in an executive lounge.
Transfers with a difference
What better way to get your break off to a brilliant start than treating yourself to a seriously cool ride to the hotel? If you’re travelling with friends, limos and party buses are a great idea. Check out sites like https://www.bergenlimo.com/fleet/new-jersey-nj/ for ideas and inspiration. If you’re with a friend or your partner, you could opt for a classic car, a sports car or a private minivan. It’s more expensive to book a private transfer, but you’ll get to your destination faster, and you won’t have to stop off at other hotels or apartments on your travels. If you’re really keen to start the trip with a bang, you could arrange for drinks, music and disco lights to be provided.
There’s such a diverse range of accommodation options available now. Whether you’re embarking on a romantic weekend away or a crazy girls’ holidays, it’s worth checking out some alternatives to hotels or looking for hotels that offer packages. If you’re on a hen weekend in a big city, for example, you could search for hotels that offer spa treatments, cocktail making or dinner with a view. It’s a good idea to look at villas and apartments for groups and to consider quirky places like treehouses, camper vans and teepees if you’re in the great outdoors. It’s often cheaper to split the cost of a large house, villa or a penthouse if there’s a large party.
If you’re going away, you want to make the most of your trip. Do some research before you go, check out recommendations in travel guides and on social media and make reservations for activities, meals and nights out. If you’re visiting a popular restaurant or a club on a Saturday night and there’s 10 of you, for example, you may find that you need to book in advance. Have a look at the kinds of excursions and activities that are available, and see what floats your boat.
