4 things to keep in mind when you plan your next vacation
Hotel accommodation, rental cars and travel may be an important part of travel preparation, but there are other important aspects as well, including finding the right travel partner, and opting for the right duration of travel. Jayant Singh, founder and managing director, Karma Hospitality and travel expert Richa Khurana Singh share insights for a smooth trip:
* Looking for a holiday or an adventure?
While you may love to explore the world and experience different cultures, at times, all you need is a break and that’s when you should see if you are looking at travelling as learning or as an adventure.
* Goal for the trip?
Are you heading for a leisurely break or going on a trip to spend quality time with your family? You need to plan for the trip based on that criteria. If it is an adventurous trip, select a place keeping that in mind. Also read up on the location, the food available, its history and arts.
* Do you really want a companion?
If you need a break to refresh yourself, go on a solo trip or spend the trip with people who will help you unwind. Find a travel mate who is as adventurous as you are.
* Money and duration
Your spending will decide the duration of the trip. Carefully consider how much of your savings are you willing to spend on this particular outing. Are you hoping to take a big trip sometime in the future? If so, don’t spend all the money on this trip.
