Traveling in and of itself can be stressful--the planning, the packing and the traveling can all be chaotic. All Points Accommodations wants the most memorable part of their members’ summer vacation to be the vacation itself.
PRE-PLAN--This doesn’t necessarily mean an itinerary down to the nanosecond; however, having a rough plan in mind can save time, energy and even money. All Points Accommodations recommends researching the chosen destination and mapping out attractions, shopping and dining ideas beforehand. Making a list of items that need to be packed including snacks, games and power cords is also encouraged.
ONLINE CHECK-IN WHEN FLYING--Airports can be a little intimidating, particularly during high traffic traveling times. Most airlines offer online check-ins, which helps eliminate some of the busy work and allow passengers to for go long lines at the tickets counters. For those without access to a computer, many airports have check-in kiosks.
BE PREPARED--Regardless of whether vacationers are traveling by car, train, bus, plane or ship, being prepared for anything can go a long way to alleviate stressors. This may include anything from cancelled flights, overbooked buses to being prepared for unexpected weather changes. All Points Accommodations knows that unplanned surprises can cause frustration and taint a vacation. Being prepared can be as simple as checking in with an airline and making sure departure times haven’t changed. Carrying snacks and entertainment, especially when traveling with children, can help pass the time if delays do happen. It’s always a good idea to pack a variety of clothes just in case the weather takes an unexpected turn.
AVOID SCAMS--Unfortunately, there are people everywhere looking to make a buck and often it’s not by legal means. All Points Accommodations encourages travelers to be on alert and remember to trust their instincts. Some rules-of-thumb include: If a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is, keep wallets and purses in places that make it hard to take away, never use unsecure Wi-fi and always be aware of surroundings.
All Points Accommodations understands that stress happens and that some things are just unavoidable. Taking some extra time, however, can help minimize some stressful situations when traveling this summer.
