As travelers make their way through the week, the questions they’ll ask to each other will help you determine whether they can afford to stay home.
Travelers may find themselves questioning their comfort level and what they can and cannot do, particularly if they’re a little tired.
And those who feel overwhelmed by the amount of travel they’ve already experienced may be especially concerned about their health, with some experts suggesting they should avoid the region until they can feel their health better.
Here are five of the top travel tips you’ll need to consider:1.
Travel with a plan.
It’s best to get a clear idea of what you’ll be spending time in and where you’ll spend it.
While many experts say to plan ahead, the best way to plan is to simply get a plan that includes the essentials of your trip, such as meals, accommodations and flights.
Here’s how to create a plan, with tips for each destination.2.
Know where you’re headed.
As we head out to our destinations, it’s important to know where we’re headed and where we’ll be staying, said Jessica Mazzocchi, senior director of travel planning at Priceline, the travel search and comparison company.
Travel experts and planners say it’s crucial to know the travel destinations where you plan to spend your time and to have a plan to get there.
For instance, Mazzucchi recommends checking out what airlines are flying out of or to and which ones are not.3.
Plan ahead and plan for emergencies.
When planning for travel, Mazucchi suggests that you always check into a hotel with the understanding that a hotel is a last resort and that you will be using it as a last-ditch resort for emergency situations.
A hotel may be unable to accommodate your needs or require you to pay a higher rate than other hotel rooms.
A second, emergency hotel may not be available, Mizzocchi said.
So plan accordingly.4.
Consider a discount.
The best way for travelers to save money is to consider a discount hotel when planning their trip.
For example, if you’re staying at a Holiday Inn Express hotel near the University of Minnesota, you could save $200 on your stay, said Mark Ritchie, managing director of international travel at Holiday Inn Worldwide, a travel marketing company.
For other hotels, like the Hilton Grand Marais in Toronto, you’ll pay $250 a night for the room, according to the company.
In some cases, you can even save money by using a different hotel than your destination.
But, Ritchie said, if the hotel is not the cheapest option, it can still provide a better experience and save you money.5.
Take advantage of other benefits.
Some of the best value hotels in major cities and destinations are offered as freebies.
For some of these, the cost is less than a night’s stay.
The Marriott International in Toronto offers a $5,000 room for one night with no extra fees, and the Hyatt Regency in Chicago offers a room for $5 for two nights with no additional fees.
And some hotels offer discounts on other services, such a complimentary hotel room or complimentary food or beverages.
