Are Holidays a Good Time to Travel?

Are Holidays a Good Time to Travel?

Many people opt to not travel during major holidays for a variety of reasons.

However, when clients ask me, “Are holidays a good time to travel?” I give them these five reasons why a holiday away makes PERFECT sense:

1. Use Fewer Vacation Days

Extending a holiday that most people already have off minimizes the amount of time needed off from work. You’ll automatically get more bang for your buck. Now you can save those valuable vacation days for another getaway!

2. Step Away from the Hustle Bustle

Kick back with a pool-side holiday.

Kick back with a pool-side resort vacation – and take the stress out of holiday planning.

Holidays can be a source of major stress for families (especially moms) as they juggle preparations, strong personalities of relatives, coordinate meals, shop for gifts and more. A luxury getaway helps them put the “pause” on all the planning. Sure, there’s preparation involved, but when the major decision of the day is deciding between the beach or the pool, it doesn’t seem too terribly taxing. Plus…I’m here to help with the planning and preparation…you just pack and go!

3. Create New Memories to Share Forever

Make wonderful new memories to share with your family!

Wake up early to watch the sun rise over the horizon. Visit a volcano. Explore the local music scene. Try new foods. Visiting a new destination can awaken the possibilities and a sense of adventure in any traveler. Sharing a unique, common experience is one of the best ways to strengthen bonds and create memories that you will cherish forever!

4. Leave the Housework at Home

For the big holiday dinners, many hotels and resorts also craft special menus for the day to celebrate the occasion. Whether it’s a traditional turkey dinner, or a decadent meal infused with local flavors, it’s sure to be deliciously fuss-free. I remember sharing Thanksgiving dinner with my kids in Honolulu over a huge spread of sushi. We were just as thankful for sushi as we would have been for turkey. And I didn’t have to wash any dishes!

5. Teach an Old, Young or Young-at-Heart Dog Some New Tricks

You and your fellow travelers can take advantage of being in a different environment by soaking up some new knowledge or acquiring a skill. Learn how to surf. Learn some foreign phrases. Explore a local museum. Doing so will help stimulate your brain and body in ways you wouldn’t be able to if you and your companions were at home in your usual comfort zone (i.e., in front of the computer screen or television).

So think about it…but don’t think about it for too long because popular destinations are already filling up with other holiday travelers just like you! Let me help you sort through the options, and plan your perfect Holiday Escape this year! Call (732) 613-8640 or click here to contact me today.
