How To Ease The Pressure And Make Travel Planning Easier

Travel can be a wonderful thing and something that changes your outlook on life, but those that have travelled extensively understand that it can be stressful too. The major hurdle when it comes to travelling the world is planning - the planning can be complex as there is so much to think about, including the route, accommodation, food, activities, packing, money, visas and the actual travel itself. With this in mind, here are a few ways that you can make travel planning easier:

Determine Destination & Length of Trip

The first thing to do will be to pick where you are travelling to and how long you will travel for. This allows you to research a route, determine your budget and begin to research hotels, restaurants, attractions and other important information well in ad-vance. You need to also decide if you are travelling solo or with other people.

Book Initial Travel & Accommodation

Booking your first part of the journey and your accommodation should be done in advance to make savings. Some people prefer to book everything before setting off, whilst others prefer to do it as they go. The benefit of doing it as you go is that it pro-vides flexibility to change your trip as you go.

Inform Bank & Convert Money

A vital yet often forgotten step is to inform your bank that you will be travelling and give them the exact dates - this means that your card won’t be blocked once you start using it overseas. Additionally, it is wise to convert some cash so that you have some easily available once you arrive.

Travel Insurance

As with any type of insurance, it is better to be safe than sorry. Travel is an exciting activity, but you never know what is going to happen so it is important that you pro-tect yourself with travel insurance.

Travel Portal

Those that travel for business can benefit greatly from using innovative business travel portals available from companies like Statesman. These portals enable you to easily book and manage all aspects of travel in one place and customise your trip with ease.

Backup Plan

Although it is important to carefully plan out a trip, it is also important that you are flexible and have a backup plan in place in case something goes wrong.


Travel is a fantastic experience, but it is also one that requires careful planning - the above steps should make this stage much easier for a fun, valuable and successful trip.
