4 Tips for Stress Free Travel

Let’s be honest. Those idyllic Instagram selfies don’t come without their fair share of stress. Delayed flights, mixed-up accommodation bookings and lost luggage could make some of that #wanderlust a little bit bittersweet. Follow these 4 tips to make sure your next trip is stress-free and picture perfect.

Book Flights Directly

For some this might not seem so obvious. Booking directly allows an open channel of communication directly with the airline. When something goes wrong, the airline can inform you by reaching you directly. Some airlines also don’t allow online check-ins with tickets bought from 3rd parties.

Be Wary of Car Rentals

Renting a car can become an expensive and stressful experience. Instead of spending hours filling in forms and paying massive deposits, take an Uber or make use of public transport. If you’re travelling to more remote areas and have no other option make sure you rent your car from a reputable company.

ALWAYS take out Travel Insurance

Often overlooked, travel insurance is an absolute must. Maybe the ground staff member handling your brand new Samsonite or American Tourister just had a fight with his girlfriend and needs to blow off some steam. You never know what might go wrong, so be prepared for anything.

Book your Hotel well in Advance

It’s always a good idea to book and pay for your accommodation ASAP to ensure your booking has been secured. Remember to add all special requests such as early check-in when making your booking. Book online or phone central reservations for an easy booking process.
