Your holiday booking process doesn’t end when you’ve got your flight, accommodation, and transfer sorted. There are plenty of extras you can add onto your travel plans, all designed to make your break go without a hitch, and help make the travel part as enjoyable as the rest, or as much as it can be anyway.
Let’s look at a few of the extras you should give some consideration to.
Now, this is one that isn’t just about considering, it’s about doing! Never attempt to travel without adequate travel insurance, it’s simply not worth the risk, especially in the event of a problem. Remember to declare your pre-existing medical conditions, take the paperwork with you, and you’re good to go.
This is a godsend if you live a distance away from the nearest airport, because flying on public transport can sometimes mean excessively long coach journeys, or a stressful train journey! If there are several of you travelling, the cost will almost always be cheaper than multiple fares on the train or coach too.
Another fantastic extra, especially useful if you have an early flight. We all know that we have to be at the airport a certain number of hours before our flight, depending on the destination, and if you’re flying early in the morning, this means an even earlier wake up time. A night in an airport hotel solves this problem, and also gives you an earlier start to your break! Of course, this could also work the opposite way around, and if you land very late in the evening, you could have a night’s sleep in the hotel before you embark on your journey home.
This is a good idea if you’re not a fan of the airport experience, simply because of how crowded and busy it can get. Airport lounges give you a spot of peace and quiet, away from the madness of the general airport space. Most often, there will be refreshments and snacks included in the price of your admission, and it’s basically a relaxation space before you depart.
These are just a few of the additional extras that you can, and in some cases, should add onto your holiday booking. It’s not all about the flight, accommodation, and transfer, you sometimes need to look a bit deeper to make the most of your eagerly awaited holiday.
