10 travel tips for your summer vacation

 
 

Our dear August is here, which means that for most of us, it's time to take a well-deserved summer vacation! And to make sure everything goes well this summer and make the most of your vacation, we've shared some travel tips below.

1

WHERE TO GO ON HOLIDAY

Summer vacations are to be enjoyed with lots of sunshine, good food and even better company. This is why Cinque Terre is the ideal destination for this summer. Enjoy dolce vita in this stunning landscape with beach, cliffs, forest and absolutely picturesque homes. And for those who prefer to stay in Portugal, why not relax on the beaches of Albufeira, rest in the tranquility of Viana do Castelo or discover the charms of Madeira?

WHERE TO STAY

When we travel we have several accommodation options: all inclusive resorts, hotels, apartments, campsites! ... It all depends on your travel style and your destination. For those who want to save money and get involved in the local culture of your destination, we always recommend renting an apartment in more central areas.

GO BY AIRPLANE

For those who travel by plane, there are several ways to make travel more comfortable. But we leave you an unmissable tip: we all know that the seats at the back of the bus are the most turbulent - and the same is true on airplanes. The places ahead are also (as a rule) the places with the most silence. In most aircraft, the engines are located underneath the wings making the seats in front of the wings better protected from the noise they produce during flight.

WHAT TO TAKE ON THE TRIP

Depending on your destination, you will need to carry essentials in your luggage but we leave you our best ideas to enjoy a super fun summer vacation. In addition to the essentials, you can not miss a good book, a hat and sunglasses, a comfortable pair of sneakers (always handy!) And a waist bag (they are practical and fashionable!). And if you're going to spend a few days by the pool, don't forget to bring a fun float to take envious pictures.

HEALTH CARE

Whether it's a short or long summer vacation, it's important to always carry a small pharmacy in your suitcase to ensure that nothing prevents you from making the most of your trip! All trips are different so when preparing your medicine kit you should consider your destination, the duration of your trip, pre-existing conditions, the time of year and the activities in which you will participate. And don't forget the basics: simple pain killers, antacids, an anti-inflammatory ointment, saline and a thermometer.

FAMILY TRAVEL

Family travel with young children is an adventure in itself! For a well-spent family vacation, the best tip we can give you is to have ideas and activities ready to keep the little ones entertained! And when they reach your destination, arrange enough activities during the day so that they are ready for bed when they return to their room at the end of the day.

HOW TO TAKE THE DREAM PHOTO

Want to have the best memories of your vacation? Nothing like having the best photos to remember later. To take your dream photograph, the first thing to do is get ready! Before your trip, research your destination online and get to know the main tourist attractions, the places you want to know, the most photogenic nooks and hidden treasures that few people have discovered yet. From this research, create your itinerary so you don't miss the opportunity to capture photos to remember your trip later!

HOW TO SAVE ON TRAVEL

Traveling is not always cheap, but you don't have to leave your bank account zero! There are many ways to save while traveling: look for free activities, don't eat at restaurants in the most touristy areas, use point or mile programs to make your reservations or be flexible with your departure and arrival dates and times for cheaper flights. !

SAFETY CARE

Just thinking about a summer vacation makes us feel more relaxed. But it's important to always pay attention to some little things that make all the difference when it comes to keeping our travel safety. They already know that they should not travel with things that are too valuable to prevent them from being lost or stolen. For your belongings (documents, mobile phones, etc.), keep them in suitably accessible bags. Do not leave suitcases / backpacks on the backs of chairs and avoid leaving your cell phones on tables when they are not around.

 
 

10

RELAX

The main reason for going on a summer vacation is because they want to relax and rest, right? So organize your trip to be as stress-free as possible: take advantage of the airport shuttle services, be flexible (let the kids have another dessert there), and don't forget to leave time on your itinerary to simply rest!
