Although our next holiday may seem far away now, the 14th January is National Shop for Travel Day and is the perfect time to shop, compare and plan a dream vacation. This Tuesday in January reminds us that there will be light at the end of the dark wintery tunnel. Founded by the Travel Technology Association, this day was established to celebrate the travel marketplace and travel technology innovators who have made holiday planning easy.
Here at Feel good Contacts, we have already begun to think about our next holiday and wanted to share with you our top tips for conjuring up excitement and celebrating National Travel Day. Whether you’re planning a weekend getaway or summer vacation, make sure you’re well prepared by following our guide.
Make a list of places you would like to go
Start by allowing your imaginations to travel to a range of destinations and make a list of where you’d like to go. Whether it’s a trip to the Maldives you’ve been dreaming of, or a city break in Milan, making a list will help you to consider the available options and make the best decision.
When it comes to travelling, our motto is to compare, plan and book. Shopping around online and browsing various travel companies will ensure you get the best deals.
You’ll find that many travel companies such as Sky Scanner, Sta Travel and Virgin Holidays have many great offers on during this time. Thanks to the advancement of online travel companies, you can now view ratings and first-hand reviews as well as book flights, hotels car rentals and other travel related activities all on one platform. Not only is this incredibly convenient but it will also save you lots of money.
