ALWAYS research the weather BEFORE you book your holiday.
I’m not saying that it’s the most important thing, but if you’re looking to go on holiday to relax by the pool and the beach, then 11’ only just about cuts it. You need to look into what the place is like in that month or that time of the year. Sometimes you might end up going to book somewhere that gets a lot of bad weather at certain times of the year. Like I said, it’s best to do research.
Check what’s in the area.
This one is very important considering the holiday I’ve just organised for me and my boyfriend to go on. We found ourselves oversleeping until meal times, going to the beach and going to the gym or playing cards in our room. Unfortunately the hotel didn’t have any type of entertainment, but I should have done my own research into that (oops.) Around the area all there seemed to be was an occasional SPAR shop, so we could get bottled water and snacks, or bike rental places.
Make sure you take the right amount of money.
Then about £100 over, just in case. You never know what could go wrong when you’re on holiday, so I’d always recommend taking out your insurances before hand. Having a bit of extra cash with you might just be your saviour. For example, I thought we were going to be able to get an uber from the train station to the airport hotel, but the Uber’s kept on cancelling on us and never showed up. We resorted in getting a taxi from the rank which charged us over double what Uber had quoted; moral being it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Pack the right things for that time of the year!
Let’s just say it’s very important especially when you’re looking at your clothing choices for your holiday. You could end up going somewhere and it being a lot cooler in that part of the world than you expected, which is never fun to realise when you get off the plane. It’s best to always do your research and be prepared for all types of weather.
This is SUPER important, wherever you go. It’s so easy to sugarcoat things these days by getting a good angle on a picture or having good lighting. A picture posted by a hotel can show the top room overall and sell you the cheapest room they have. At the same time, the description doesn’t always match up to the reality of what you actually get. Besides, isn’t it better to know what someone else’s experience has been like before going somewhere yourself?
