10 Tips when Choosing your Destination



You’ve decided to take more time off and realize experiences rather than possessions really do make you happier and less stressed. Marking vacation time on your calendar can give you something to look forward to, but proper trip planning is key to alleviating anxiety about taking time off from work.Whether you’re planning a trip for yourself, you and your partner, friends or family, these steps can help you choose your best vacation.

#1. Be open-minded


Haven’t heard a place? Can’t even pronounce a place? Have no idea where a place is? But you’ve found suspiciously cheap flights to said place…? Google the hell out of it, check it’s safe and book that flight! Sometimes you’ll have the best adventures in places you can’t pronounce. Ljubljana, I’m talking to you.

#2. Be creative


You want to travel to a certain destination but flights are really expensive? Don’t let this put you off, find an alternative. Using the example of Ljubljana again, it’s really expensive to fly direct but flights to Venice are cheap and then there’s a 2 hour shuttle bus from Venice into Ljubljana. Problem solved.

#3. Consider the underdog


Every country has a ‘second city’ and it’s often a much cheaper and a more unique alternative to the capital city.

#4. Be decisive


You’ve found a place you want to go. Book it now. Go on, book it. Don’t think about it for 3 weeks and then think a bit more and then realise you’ve missed the opportunity.

#5. Ask yourself ‘why’?


Why do you want to travel? Do you want to relax, have fun with your mates, reconnect with a loved one, switch off from work, learn something new, get a tan or have an adventure? It’s easier to decide where you’re going when you know why you’re going there.

#6. Remember, remember…


You’ll only regret the things you didn’t do.


I always think about this when I need a kick up the arse to be a little more adventurous.

#7. Safe choices aren’t bad choices


Yes, I like to be adventurous in my travel choices but a good old weekend in Paris or an all-inclusive beach holiday should never been sneered at. So what if a million people have done it before you. If you have a good time, that’s all that matters.

#8. Go Solo


You’ve found somewhere you REALLY want to go but no one wants to go with you? Don’t let this stop you, go solo!

#9. Don’t dismiss your own backyard


Who said travelling has to include long flights? Search a little closer to home, you’d be surprised by the hidden gems you might find.

#10. There’s always a budget option


Don’t let your budget stop you from travelling somewhere. Even the most expensive countries have budget options like hostels where you can cook your own food, free city tours and public transport. You’re going to need to be creative but that often makes it more fun.


Now you know what kind of trip you want and you’re in the right frame of mind to start your search. It’s time for the fun part… Once you’ve decided on a destination the next stage is getting it booked. So to make the travel easy, we offer Flightlayaway plans so don't miss your desired place.
