After two years’ of lockdowns, social distancing restrictions, and a killer virus that has swept the globe, international tourism is finally back on the agenda. Pharmaceutical companies have successfully developed effective vaccines that make it possible for people to travel again, without getting sick.
If you are considering going on vacation again for the first time in a few years, then you need to make sure that your vacation is a good one.
This article will break down and explain exactly how you can ensure that your trip abroad is one to remember:
Hiring a Private Jet
Hiring a private jet is not cheap, but it is definitely a great way of travelling in style and making the most out of your vacation. You charter private flights from Houston, New York, or any other large American city, for that matter. Airlines will also allow you to travel anywhere, permitting that it is a safe place to fly into and that you can afford to travel there. When you are booking a private jet, give thought to who you will be bringing, where you will be going, and the size of the airliner that you are going to charter. All of these things influence the amount that you will have to pay.
Employing a Chauffeur
When you arrive, there’s nothing more luxurious than having a chauffeur drive you around. Having to negotiate with taxi drivers can be very difficult, especially if you do not speak the language of the country that you are in. A chauffeur will meet you at the airport, pick you up, and take you straight to your hotel. Additionally, you can pay them to drive you around while you are there, and to take you back to the airport when you are ready to go home. Chauffeur services are not as expensive as you might think, with some offering their services for as little as $500 for a week’s worth of driving.
A luxury hotel is also worth considering. What’s the point in chartering a private jet and employing a chauffeur, if when you arrive you stay in a budget hotel? If you are on a budget and can’t afford to stretch for a luxury hotel in addition to a jet and chauffeur, there is a solution. If you travel during your chosen destination’s off-season, you will be able to get a room in a luxury hotel for significantly less than it would cost the rest of the year. You might also be able to get a chauffeur and jet cheaper if you travel during the annual offseason, also.
Lots of Relaxation
Relaxation is an absolute necessity. After two years’ worth of lockdowns, anxiety, and fear, your first vacation should be a time of rest and relaxation. You can either stay in a hotel that has a spa, or you can relax on the beach. With that said, everybody relaxes differently. Not everybody enjoys lying around. Some people find visiting museums and galleries relaxing, while others enjoy hiking. Whatever it is that you personally enjoy most, make sure that you do it when you are on vacation. You deserve it after having to put up with the pandemic!
Everybody should eat at a five-star restaurant at least once in their lives. A common misconception is that all five-star restaurants are extortionately expensive. This couldn’t be any further from the truth. Many five-star restaurants, while not cheap, won’t break the bank. You may also be able to buy several courses as part of a package, allowing you to break down the cost of your food. If you are visiting your chosen destination during its offseason, then there’s a very strong chance that you will eat for less. If you travel during peak season, then unfortunately you may have to contend with high prices.
If none of the things that we have mentioned here so far appeal to you and you prefer simpler vacations, then why not rent a motorbike and go touring? Alternatively, you could go backpacking. Backpacking is a great way to learn a lot about a country, its people, and its culture. If you are going to backpack, make sure that you carefully plan your route out, pack properly, and keep in touch with your family on your journey. If you don’t update them of your location and anything happens to you, they may not be able to find you.
We are all finally able to go on vacation again. For your first vacation, you need to make it a memorable one. If you are going to go abroad, then take this article’s advice and make your vacation as luxurious as possible – or keep it simple and go backpacking. Whatever you choose to do, make sure that you enjoy yourself.
