Have you ever found yourself spending days, weeks, or even months planning for a vacation? You share the details with friends and family and everyone is on board, ready to go. Booking time arrives and everyone backs out. Many of us have probably experience this situation at least once in our lifetime. Two of the top reasons you’re left with just plans usually are due to not having a travel companion or vacation cost.
When you’re unable to find a travel partner what do you? Put your plans on hold or just go? Traveling alone may not be ideal but at times it’s needed. Solo vacations and weekend getaways gives way to relaxation and self-reflection leaving you refreshed and energized. In addition to traveling alone, there are other options available when individuals closet to you are unable to go. Group travel and travel clubs have become increasingly popular over the years. Fun and exciting experiences await while meeting new people and making new friends. Each provides the comfort of traveling with like-minded individuals.
With cost being a big concern for some travelers, group travel offers the opportunity to split cost, making it for more affordable for more people to go. In addition to group travel, advanced planning often provides the best deals. Sometimes payment plans are offered allowing one to budget precisely for the trip. Another way to narrow down cost, when available, is purchasing all-inclusive options. All-inclusive can range from roundtrip airfare, lodging accommodations, food and beverages, as well as roundtrip transfers to and from the hotel. Some all-inclusive options may cover for some activities within the resort.
Don’t let these travel whoa hold you back. Whether you’re traveling solo, with a travel partner, or in a group, your options are endless and finding the right cost for your trip is within reach.
Have you ever dreamed of traveling but failed to do so? Do you find yourself making excuses for not vacationing? Here are 3 reasons many people fail to travel and a little encouragement to do so.
1.) Money – I can’t afford to travel. I don’t want to go if I can’t spend like I want to.
I’m here to tell you that travel affordability is within reach. You don’t have to be rich or wealthy to travel. With proper planning and budgeting, you can vacation and travel the way you want to. Vacation options are endless.
2.) Travel Partner – I can never find anyone to go with me. My friends always cancel on me.
Of course, we all would love to have a travel partner to share our ventures with but at times this option isn’t always readily available. I quickly got out of this travel partner dependency stage after my first solo trip. Yes, solo is an option and your schedule revolves around YOU.
3.) Fear – I’m afraid to travel. What if…
Anything new and different can invoke some type of fear. Remember your first day of high school or your first bike ride. There was some form of fear as you approached and began each new surrounding or adventure. But looking back you conquered your first-time ventures with excitement and enthusiasm. Do the same with travel.
No longer let these 3 reasons stop you from traveling. Dream and travel on. The adventures you encounter and the places you visit will provide a lifetime of memories. The world is waiting to receive you.
Look forward to future blogs on travel planning & budgeting, travel partner, and solo travel.
