Research, is the most important part of planning your own trip. It is the best way to find the great valued travel plans, according to travel agents.
Where to Go?
Figuring out where you want to go is the first step in making travel plans. If you were to research every travel spot in the world it would take a very long time, so it is important to narrow down your search. Most travel enthusiasts have a list of places they want to explore during their lifetime. I guess you could call this their “travel bucket list.” Some have it written down, others just keep it in mind, however for this exercise we’re going to write down your own travel bucket list. First I would recommend writing down places you have dreamed of visiting. Get together with your travel companions and come up with some places you’ve said “I always wanted to go there.” Also, ask your friends and family where they have traveled.
Once you have a list of at least 10 travel ideas number them in order of importance and write down what you envision the amenities and activities would be like for each. Start at the top of your list and request a few quotes. You may find that the price, level of service, season, or the recommended length of stay may, or may not be a good fit for your desires right now. If not, the list gives you more options and ideas to continue researching. Keep in mind, usually the more exotic your destination, the higher the price tag will be, and the more complex the planning can get. For example, if you wanted to take a trip to the Hawaiian Islands you would have to plan transportation between the islands and maybe multiple accommodations.
