Today’s post features a guest writer, Henry Moore. Henry is the co-creator of FitWellTraveler. The site blends two of his favorite subjects (travel and health) to provide readers with information about how to get the most out of both. Henry believes travel can change you, and good health preserves you. He combines both in his work on FitWellTraveler.
The holidays are fast approaching, and they offer a welcomed break from the same old routine and daily stresses like work. Whether you’re visiting relatives, taking a solo trip, or going on a getaway with your partner, a holiday escape may be just what you need to enjoy a relaxing, stress-free holiday vacation. Of course, there are some tips you should follow to ensure you don’t let the planning and traveling create unnecessary anxiety or agitation.
When and How to Book
Experts have mixed opinions on whether it’s best to book flights and hotels well in advance or in the week leading up to your trip. Booking early gives you more options, but waiting gives you a chance to take advantage of flash sales. Regardless of when you book, traveling during off-peak days and times gives you better deals and avoids the crowds.
While most people purchase round-trip tickets when they travel, flying with one airline to your destination and a different airline back home can save you money and provide more convenient flight times. Comparing prices at alternate airports can also save money, and using travel sites helps you find the best deals for airfare, lodging, car rentals, and other travel needs.
