Smart Tips for a Luxury Holiday
The internet is full of tips and tricks for travel on a budget, however, some people are looking for the exact opposite. If you are someone who works hard to save up for that one epic luxury holiday, you want to make sure that you make the most out of it. It’s not always easy to know where to start, though. So, here are some top tips on how to travel in style and ensure that truly unforgettable luxury experience on your holiday.
Upgrade your flight
The key to a luxury holiday is to start with your flights, especially if your holiday destination is more than a few hours away. You may do this in a few different ways. The less expensive way is to upgrade your flight to a business or first class as well as add-on any extra perks for comfort. This will ensure that you have comfortable seats, nice meals and drinks throughout your flight. If you really want to go all the way, however, you may consider a private plane. Now, not everyone may be comfortable with the costs of a private flight, but there is no doubt that the experience is truly extraordinary.
Rent a private accommodation
A 5-star hotel might be the obvious choice for a luxury holiday, but it’s not necessarily the best value for your money. As nice as the hotel is, you are still sharing facilities with many other guests and the pricing for the best room is not always worth it. Therefore, in many cases you are actually better off renting a private accommodation, such as a luxury villa or a penthouse. These places are typically incredible, with private pools and saunas and breakfast options. If you are travelling to more affordable locations, such as Eastern Europe, you may be surprised at the luxury accommodation options for very reasonable prices too.
Pick your restaurants wisely
Eating out on a luxury holiday does not necessarily mean visiting a Michelin Star restaurant. While you may want to try the experience (and you definitely should), it’s not what will make your whole holiday feel luxurious. Instead, it may be a better idea to pick less expensive places that are still high-quality and have great reviews, but visit them more frequently. This means that you will eat out for breakfast, lunch and dinner, try the delicious local cuisine, spoil yourself with nice cocktails and desserts, and forget about having to cook or cater for yourself throughout your whole holiday.
Personalise your experiences
For a truly luxury holiday experience, make sure that whatever local activities you decide to do, upgrade to the personalised or private options. For instance, if you are looking to go snorkelling, rent a private boat for a few hours rather than going on a group tour. If you are visiting the spa, make sure it’s a session that focuses on you and your partner only. Going to watch a live sports game? Book the VIP seats. It may all sound like unnecessary things, but those are the little touches and additions that will take your holiday to the next level and make it into an unforgettable experience.
