For any holiday, its a time to escape the daily grind of life and to jet off to a beautiful place somewhere around the globe. If you want to treat yourself to the more luxurious things in life, then a holiday can be the perfect opportunity to upgrade your holiday. And why not? When you have the money to spare, its something that’s worth doing because you only live once. Here are some ways to upgrade your holiday for more luxury.
When you go away, the last thing you want to be doing is working hard for the food and drink. If you’re someone who enjoys relaxing and sitting by the pool, rather than going out of a resort or hotel to see the surrounding area, you will probably be suited to the all-inclusive option. Many hotels and a lot of the resorts will offer their guests the add-on to go all inclusive. As all your drinks and food are included, it does actually become more affordable and works out better than going full, half board or room only. You might be spending a considerable amount each day if you decided just to book the room. You then also have to worry about bringing enough currency with you and ensuring that you’re tipping any waiters who may expect it when you pay. Although it’s good to show your appreciation by tipping, with the all-inclusive option there’s not as much of an expectation to be tipped.
Take Your Flight To Another Level
With flights, the standard economy is often basic, although since technology has improved and upgrades have been made, there’s a lot of economy flights that are perfectly suitable for flying when it only takes a few hours. If you’re doing a long-haul trip, then it might be worth you splashing the cash and flying business class, or first class if it’s an option. This gives you a more relaxed experience and the chance to enjoy the flight more. With this upgrade, you’ll have more space to move around, the food and drink would be complementary, and it would be better quality than what you have to pay for in the economy. And if you really want to push the boat out, then luxury flights with your own chartered jet are something to consider too.
Check Yourself Into A VIP Lounge
If you’ve booked business class or first class, then you’ll like get a VIP lounge for free. However, if you can’t afford to fly on an top-price ticket, then it’s always a luxurious treat to book yourself into one of the lounges that will be available at the airport you’re flying from. They exist in most airports and it’s worth doing a little research beforehand so that you can pick and choose which one you’d prefer to go in. Book in advance, and they can give you a few hours before the flight to enjoy some free food and drink and a space to relax, and that’s away from the hustle and bustle of the main departure area.
Book Some Private Tours
When you find yourself on whatever piece of land you find yourself on, it’s important you’ve planned ahead to do some excursions. It’s good to take advantage of any holidays that are specific to seeing the sights and exploring the culture. The best way to do this when you’re new to the area or country is to book some private tours. Private tours are specifically conducted for your holiday party, whether it’s just the two of you or your whole family. The tour guide will likely be local to the area and will give you a personal and tailored insight into the sights that are waiting to be seen!
Upgrade Your Room Type
Comfort is essential during your trip away, and so your accommodation can certainly be upgraded. Have a look when you’re booking the holiday to find out what room upgrades are available and get in touch with the hotel directly. If it’s a last-minute thought, then every hotel is going to have a number of rooms free and available for whenever they may have extra-special guests staying. So look for those hotels and resorts that have penthouse suites or honeymoon suites to ensure you can have access to these rooms, should they be available.
Up The Luggage Allowance
Your luggage allowance is one thing a lot of us worry about, especially if you consider yourself to be a panic packer. That’s someone who’ll end up packing way too much for their holiday. However, it’s good to pack too much, than to pack too little. However, if you’re going over the amount of luggage allowance, then you’re likely to face a hefty fine on the day of your flight. If you find you are one of those people who might need that extra wiggle room for the luggage, then you can always look at upping the luggage allowance.
A lot of airlines will allow this for a fee, and it’s going to be a lower fee than what you’d have to pay on the day if you changed your mind or found that you had packed too much. Remember that each person will have an allowance and that you can always spread the weight over the suitcases if one is too heavy. If you’re booked as couple or group, then your luggage allowance can be combined. So even if one is too heavy, the lighter ones will automatically count off the excess. That saves you having to unpack your suitcase in the middle of an airport!
Upgrading your holiday for a more luxurious experience is certainly something you want to reward yourself with if you have the opportunity and the money to do so. Think about ways you can tailor your holiday to make it more enjoyable. Book yourself some private tours for city escapes and try an all-inclusive package if you’re staying in a resort or an islands that’s limited in its surroundings.
