Luckily for you, we’ve compiled a short list of tips to make the planning experience exciting, fast, and easy!
Country’s Tourist Website
If you’re already set on your dream location, head to the country or state’s official website or instagram page, where you can find expert tips, recommendations, and suggestions for places to visit, things to do, and where to stay. Not only will this get you and your friends pumped for the trip, but will also give you valuable insight into the country’s allure, making the annoying planning part of the trip, a breeze.
Visit travel bloggers’ pages on Instagram for expert tips on visiting a certain place, the dos and don’ts, and how to save money while traveling. Certain seasoned travelers will offer valuable and honest insight into different locations that you may not find anywhere else. Speaking to friends or family who have visited these places is also a great way to get insight.
Head to websites such as Trip Advisor and book at least one exciting tour to add structure to your day! Booking lots of tours can add up price-wise, but if you book at least one or two, it will add structure to your day, making it easier to plan around the tour. Tour prices are usually cheaper when booked in advance as well, and can fill up quickly when saved for the last minute. Tours will also allow you to meet people for further insight, and get recommendations from locals.
