How to plan your vacation

Making sure your vacation goes according to plan is not difficult to do, but it does need to be planed carefully.

First you need to decide where to go, this year I have decided to go to Holland for my vacation. Once you have decided where you want to go on vacation you can start to plan the things you want to see and do. In Holland I am interested in the Van Gogh museum, the Rembrandt museum and the Casino.

After you have figure out where you want to go and what you want to do when you are there you can get a feel for where you want your hotel to be.

There are many different websites that offer special prices on hotels.  On my site I offer everything from complete packages to weekend get aways.  Having a qualified agent plan your trip helps take the guess workout of it.

If your initial search does not include a agent try to find reviews from people that have visited hotels in the area you plan to visit. The hotels site is always going to tell you how great the hotel is, but if someone were annoyed enough to trash a place or tell you how great it was, then you can be pretty sure they are telling you the truth.

The first hotel I was looking at for my last trip said it was close to the center of the city, in a nice area, but reading reviews from former patrons told me the area was filled with undesirable environments, and this is not really what I want to see on my vacation, so I found a much nicer location. It was a little farther from the city center but it was near the museums I wanted to go to, so by being closer to them I could get up early walk to the museums  (good exercise) and spend the rest of the time walking around looking at the shops and attractions inside the city’s center.

Now all that is left is packing the right clothes. Unless you are going to someplace where the weather is always a constant, make sure to pack clothes for both good and bad weather. My last trip weather was expected to me mostly sunny and in the 80’s but there is a chance of rain so I will be packing a coat for the rain, and extra socks just in case.

If you are going to be in Europe and plan to visit a casino you should know that in Europe casinos are more upscale then in the USA. They will not let you in wearing your shorts a T shirt and sandals, most casinos require men to wear a tie and jacket or a turtleneck.

It is also always helpful to buy a travel guide for where ever you are going. Besides having helpful recommendations for things to see and places to eat, many of them offer discounts for attractions.

Well the only thing left is to go and have a good time, I know I do.  If you are considering  trip and want the best possible price in the next possible feel free to visit me online.
