7 Tips for Securing a Super Holiday

15 October 2011

Ever had the holiday trip from hell? A bad holiday can leave you feeling disappointed and drained. Here are some tips for planning your next holiday trip to make sure it’s the best trip ever.
1. Choose accommodation that is easy to book.

Sometimes planning a holiday trip can be the most draining part of the experience. Finding the right accommodation in the right place can be a like looking for a needle in a haystack. So instead of scratching around, find a accommodation provider that has a professional website where you can find all the information you need. Check out the pictures of the accommodation and if everything suits, book online. Too easy!

2. Call ahead and ask questions.

If you’re not sure that you’re going to have all the things your need to accommodate your family or group of friends on your holiday, call ahead and check with the front desk staff. The more questions you ask before you arrive, the less chance you have of being disappointed.

3. Choose a vibrant city to visit.

The one of the biggest mistakes you can make when planning a trip away is choosing the wrong place to visit. Pick a city that has lots to see and do, like Sydney, Brisbane or the Gold Coast. By picking serviced apartments Brisbane you will be in the heart of the city where all the entertain and action happens. You fill your days with visiting all the cultural venues that the city has to offer or shopping up a storm in the most popular city shopping streets. You can try all the best cafes in the day and at night get dinner and then cocktails in best venues that the city has to offer. All of this spells great fun for you and your group.

4. Balance being out and about with a few nights in.

Sometimes you can party and sight see a little too much and end up feeling like you need a holiday from your holiday when you get home. You can avoid this feeling by balancing your busy days and nights out with a few nights or days relaxing in your apartment. In accommodation like apartments Brisbane you will have lots of space and the luxury of a modern and clean living area to relax in. You can cook your own meal in your apartment kitchen, which will give you body a welcome break from eating out, and watch a DVD, read a book or have a big chat with your friends over a glass of wine. This R&R time will leave you feeling well rested by the time you’re ready to head home.

5. Keep your things in a secure place.

Being the victim of theft can ruin any one’s holiday! Staying in a reputable serviced apartment means that you don’t have to worry about the security of your personal belongings. You can leave your valuables locked up in your room’s safe or enquire about locking up particularly valuable items at the front desk.

6. Above all focus on making fun experiences.

After all is said and done, the things you will remember most are the fun experiences you had on your holiday. So be spontaneous, visit the places you heard about, try new things, take detours, do things that make you laugh and be adventurous. The thing that makes a great holiday is great memories.
