Are you one of those people who has bad luck on vacation? Do you go on vacation and it rains, or you arrive and there is a hurricane, or perhaps the shower doesn’t work in your suite? Here are some tips to make sure that you start doing things right when choosing a vacation.


The first tip for choosing a vacation that will keep you full of memory stock for a lifetime might sound a bit “new-agey” but believe me, it works. Stop worrying about all those things that can go wrong on vacation and start visualizing yourself getting on the airplane on time, enjoying your hotel suite, swimming in the ocean and eating great food. The best time to do this is when you are already in a good mood, after meditation or on a Sunday morning when you can lie in; any time you can suck the juice from your visualization.


On practical terms, do a little research about the places you can afford to visit on vacation. Don’t just go somewhere that is fashionable because everyone has been there or is going there. Choose a vacation that suits your tastes. If you hate art and fashion and love rock climbing, don’t go to Milan or Paris, if you love being by the ocean, don’t choose a skiing holiday in the Rockies. It might sound simple, but do what you love.

Vacation within your means

Booking a vacation that you can afford will help you enjoy your vacation more. There is nothing worse than watching the pennies during your vacation because you know that you can’t really pay for it. Better to book somewhere cheaper and have more spending money than suffering in paradise. A top tip is to go somewhere on vacation where the flights are less expensive, opting to spend more money on your hotel or accommodation.

Get Insurance

Vacation insurance can smooth out any number of mishaps that could ruin your vacation. If you are going to a destination during its hurricane season, make sure you are covered for cancellations. Make sure you have medical cover and are secure for things like replacing your passport if it gets lost etc.

Go to a Destination Closer to Home

And finally, unless you have an adventurer’s spirit and simply must go to India or Thailand or Australia etc, then choosing a vacation destination which involves shorter flights is a good idea, especially if you are traveling with children. For most, your vacation should be a rest not a chore, so going somewhere closer to home can save you on stress as well as money for flight tickets.
