The world is finally opening up again, travel restrictions have mostly been lifted and a lot of people are itching to see the world again. Are you?
If you’re ready to have the ultimate vacation then you’ve come to the right place. Check out these top 5 tips for planning a luxury vacation — exactly what you need after two years of limited traveling.
- Choose the Right Destination
Step one in luxury vacation planning is choosing the destination. The destination really is key. Choose your destination by deciding your goals for the vacation.
Are you seeking ultimate rest and relaxation? A beach destination will serve you well. Or would you prefer an action-packed trip full of activities? You’ll likely want to head to the mountains for something like this. Perhaps you’re after a city break with plenty of wining and dining, theater, and the likes.
Once you’ve got your vision in place you can choose the best destination.
- Set a Budget
Luxury lifestyle vacations do not equal affordable. Therefore, it’s important to set a budget to ensure you get the most out of your trip. Get an idea of the price of luxury vacation rentals and activities, have a look at luxury car rentals and transport costs.
Having a budget lets you know what options are available to you so that you can start planning. It also helps you to prioritize spending. For example, perhaps going on a helicopter ride is more important than staying at the top hotel.
- Look for Extraordinary Luxury Vacation Homes
These days an opulent vacation is less about staying in a 5-star hotel and more about once-in-a-lifetime vacation rentals. There are exquisite, unusual, and grand rentals available all over the world.
Luxury vacation homes give you the benefit of privacy and freedom alongside the splendor of hotel services. Many of these homes have an in-house chef as well as a full team of staff to make your vacation as stress-free as possible.
- Book Rare Experiences
Your luxury vacation is the perfect opportunity to splurge on rare experiences that have always been on your bucket list. Think of a helicopter ride, trekking with gorillas, or driving a vehicle from a car rental in Iceland while enjoying the beauty of the country and sleeping in an opulent igloo under the Northern Lights.
Book world-class restaurants well in advance and purchase tickets to once-in-a-lifetime experiences. You won’t regret it.
- Make Sure You Have Enough Time
A luxury vacation is all about slowing down, soaking it up, and pampering yourself. This isn’t possible if you’re rushing around because you only have a weekend available. Once you’ve decided on the perfect time of the year for your vacation, ensure that you take enough time to enjoy it.
While a weekend break is fun, aim to spend at least four nights enjoying the spoils of your labor (but hopefully much more).
