Set your budget

When travelling there are always costs that we forget to consider. You set a budget of £600 per person, search for the dream package for a little more but you are willing to fork out the extra because it has a high rating on tripadvisor. That’s all great however there’s a reason you set a budget, you need to remember all those little extras that add up, you have to sort out transport to the airport, as well as your spending money and that shirt you love but your partner despises. Not forgetting airport parking, car hire, travel insurance as well.

Plan and book excursions

The best way to avoid disappointment on holiday is by booking excursions in advance this ensure that you have your place on the boat trip around the other islands. It's also best to book them with established companies that cover you for cancellation just in case.

Check your documents

Before going away it is best that you check your passport just in case it has expired. Imagine walking up to the check in desk, bags packed dreaming about the golden beach to be told your passport expired last week, yeah not something you’d like to happen in your lifetime at all. So it’s best to check your passport at least a month before you leave. Another important document to check is your travel insurance you have to be sure that just like any other type of insurance your details are 100% correct otherwise a claim could be declined.

Get your travel insurance straight away

A study showed that us brits, especially the younger ones don’t take out travel insurance when going on holiday this means in some cases they are left with medical bills in excess of £30,000. Why run that risk when you can pay from £7 for travel insurance which gives you peace of mind and that will cover you if an unforeseen event happens.
