Holidays aren’t meant to be stressful - they’re time to spend away from the stresses of everyday life with those you love and cherish - but they can oftentimes find themselves marred by indecision, unconfirmed bookings, and poor planning. These are all avoidable circumstances, and eventualities that this quick guide is keen to help you avoid. Discover below how to enjoy your vacation, to whichever destination you’re planning on visiting, with no stress experienced between the check-in desk and your arrival back at home following a memorable and relaxing holiday.  

Transport

  Holidays are by their nature about ‘going away’ - and as such, you’ll be using at least one mode of transport during your stress-free trip. Planes, trains, buses, cabs - they can all be stressful given diabolical planning, bad luck or significant delays. When planning how you’re going to get around on your holiday, ensure you’ve booked and confirmed all the important transportation links, with a back-up written down in case of emergency or delay. Inside a city, try to familiarize yourself with the public transport links, so you’re never stranded and facing a long walk, and save tube maps or bus routes to your phone as back-ups.  

Place Bookings

  Aside from transport, you should also place a number of bookings, ensuring you’ve got your accommodation booked and confirmed and your major activities in place. For a visit to London, for instance, you’ll want to tick off the unforgettable bucket list activity of heading to one of the city’s West End plays - but to do so ordinarily, you’ll need to book in advance. The same can be said for gigs, recitals, performances, and some restaurants to guarantee you’re not let down on arrival, forced to head somewhere other than your ideal option for your entertainment or food.  

Documents

  Largely dependent on where it is you’re visiting but nonetheless important for most holidays abroad are any relevant documents. You’ll need to ensure you’re taking all your most important documents - your passport, ID, health cards and insurance details - to ensure your safety, while certain countries also stipulate you bring additional documents that prove, for instance, that you’ve had your Yellow Fever vaccination. Alternatively, they may simply need documents that’ll help you get your visa on arrival. Without these all-important documents, you’ll experience a good deal of stress - forgetting one may even end your holiday before it even began.  

Itinerary

  Everyone likes to travel and holiday in different ways - some like to take each day as it comes and ask locals for recommendations, while others enjoy fastidiously planning their vacation to the minute, with as much jam-packed into their time away as possible. Whatever your particular vibe, make sure you’re realistic and that you set aside time to see the most important sights. Finally, ensure you have a relaxed period scheduled at least once a day - sometimes you can feel so busy on holiday that the everyday stress of work creeps into what is supposed to be a relaxing trip away from the cares at home.   These tips should help you find ways to avoid and remove stress from your holiday, guaranteeing an unforgettable holiday for you and your loved ones.
