The More You Know, the More You Vacay!


Around this time of the year, most families begin planning for summer vacations. If it’s a bigger vacation, now is especially the time to begin researching about the future destinations. However, there are many different ways to go about researching for a destination. Most families do extensive online searching. They look for the best deals on hotels, restaurants, tourists attractions, and everything in between. Other families enlist the help of travel planners such as AAA (pictured above), TripHobo, and Travelocity. They can help find nicely priced restaurants, comfortably-situated hotels, and hassle-free routes to take to your vacation destination. Here are some tips for more effective researching, so you can make your vacation the way it should be…stress-free!

  • Book early!- You’ll have a better chance of getting the lodging you want before all the best options are gone.
  • Be aware of road construction and other travel warnings- Stay up-to-date on weather patterns for the area you are headed to. Be prepared for road construction and make sure you research highway routes since construction is popular during the summer.
  • Look for deals and discounts- Research coupons for travel expenses. This is nice especially if you are going in the “low” or least busy season.
  • Read reviews- Narrow your search for hotels, entertainment, and eateries by reading other peoples’ reviews of places. You’ll see positive experiences as well as complaints giving you an idea of what choice you’d like to make.
  • Look for early morning or late night flights- If you’re booking a flight, look for some of the cheaper flights that leave late at night or in the early morning hours. If you have a longer flight, these can be nice too, because you can sleep and make the flight go faster.

These tips will help you get started on researching for the perfect vacation. Good luck, and happy searching!
