Do you love to travel but hate the stress of actually getting from Point A to Point B? You’re not alone. While most of us dream of our perfect vacations, too much time spent in airport security lines, squished into tiny airplane seats, and checking in and out of hotels can make it seem like it’s easier and less stressful to just stay home.
Luckily, we’ve got some top tips to help you take the stress out of travelling this year. Ready? Let’s get started.
Take a cruise
If you hate packing and unpacking and continually checking in and out of hotels, a cruise could be the perfect solution for you. When you cruise, you really do take most of the stress out of travel. Instead of worrying about how you’ll get from each city, you’ll be transported while you sleep. This means you can wake up in a new, exciting destination without needing to actually get yourself there- something that’s even more stressful when you have kids.
Speaking of kids, cruises are a great option if the whole family will be travelling. That’s because the cruise lines have kids clubs for all ages, while mum and dad are able to relax in adult only pools and areas.
Choose one destination
As much as we all like to country-hop and see as much as we can while travelling, you’ll find it much less stressful if you just pick one destination at a time. This will also mean that you can truly see more of each place and get to know the locals. If you’re thinking about visiting the Mediterranean, consider a luxury yacht charter in Greece or even a catamaran charter in Greece. This will allow you to see plenty of different islands within the same trip.
The people who deal with the least stress while travelling are the ones who are organised. Make a list of what you need to do at home and work before you leave, the things you need to pack, and anything else you need to check off your travel list whenever your brain feels fresh and calm. Keep the list with you throughout the entire preparation for your trip, and cross things off as you go. Take your list with you while travelling in case you start wondering if you did something in particular before you left.
