Spontaneity is awesome. Hot tours, hurling darts directly into the map: the place you receive – go there and also go. But in our continually cozy reality this occurs really seldom. Perhaps this’s appropriate, since the own safety of yours, comfort and well-being practically decide whether you would like traveling at all or perhaps not.
So before you go, you need to seriously think and think about all the moments of your journey, starting with where we go and whom we take with us, and ending with how we will put our luggage and which applications to download. Let’s start with the most important thing – decide where to go.
Choose a direction:
Most of our tourists, tired of the lingering fall-winter-spring, rush to the warm sea or just to where it is warmer. And no matter what time of year you are drawn abroad, there are countries where eternal summer reigns.
Surfers, divers and those who genuinely want to be such, it is better to go to Australia. True, divers can give their preference to the Dominican Republic, where you can enjoy the underwater views of the Caribbean.
For lovers of the gentle sun, ocean and friendly locals, Bali in Indonesia will suit you. Moreover, a visa can be bought on arrival for $ 25.
Serenity and complete relaxation await tourists in a paradise of isolated India, for example in Goa.
You can get to hot Egypt by issuing a visa at the border for only $ 15, and in general you can get a great tan, visit another country and not spend much money.
But in the Maldives, a visa is generally not needed, and tourists are waiting for beautiful views of the ocean and seafood.
Another heavenly place that does not need a visa is Seychelles with a beach holiday, fishing, diving and all the same beautiful views.
Without a visa you can go to Thailand. Its light atmosphere and plenty of entertainment make people fall in love from the first arrival and rest there regularly.
In the UAE, even in winter + 25 ° C, so you will not freeze. And even if it seems to you that it is too cold for swimming, there are so many interesting things in big cities that you will not get bored.
Even without a visa, you can relax in Malaysia and Vietnam, in Tunisia, the Bahamas, Cuba, Columbia, and probably half of Latin American countries, including Brazil, Venezuela, Honduras, Bolivia, Haiti, Chile, Ecuador and Jamaica.
In general, there is plenty to choose from.
Well, if you are drawn to Europe, you can relax in Montenegro and Macedonia without a visa. For the 26 countries of the Schengen zone, of course, need a Schengen visa, with which you can move to all these countries. However, this is not so simple: for one visa you can stay in the countries only for 90 days. Here is a calculator in which you can count the days of stay.
Another important factor when choosing is your budget, the amount of money you are willing to spend on a trip. In order to better understand what time the vacation will be, you can use the Number service. Here you will find out how much housing, food, transportation, clothing and other cost points will cost in the country where you want to go. You can enter two cities and compare where it will be more profitable to rest.
If you can’t choose your destination or don’t know what is interesting to visit in a particular place or go to website to choose your destination, the Agential service will help you. By registering, you get access to a large database of traveler reviews. With that, you will receive not only a certificate of a particular place, but you will also be able to find out how much it should take with you. But the most remarkable thing is that having made your own individual route, you can take it with you on the road and use it even without the Internet.
Do not forget that for some trips you must have an insurance policy. For example, without medical expenses insurance you will not receive a Schengen visa. In this case, it is more convenient and faster to turn to online travel insurance purchase services. One of them is a resource with a unique algorithm for selecting the right Cherehapa insurance. On this site you can make an electronic policy in literally 5 minutes.
To save on airline tickets, you need to know the features of their sale and follow a few rules.
It is best to buy tickets 45 days before the trip. If you take tickets for 2-3 months, the airlines will not be able to calculate the actual price and will set the approximate prices, focusing on the popularity of the flight last year. And if 45 days are left before the flight, the price already fully corresponds to the passenger traffic this year.
The correct day of the week and time of booking:
It is better to take a ticket for the middle of the week, when the flights are half empty, from Tuesday to Thursday. The most advantageous moment – from Tuesday to Wednesday, at one o’clock in the morning (local time of the airline). Discounts for tickets are usually available on a day from Sunday evening. On Tuesday at 00:00, tickets that were booked but not redeemed are entered into the system again, and if you call at one in the morning, then there is a high probability of buying a ticket with a discount. Just be sure to call, and not to order via the Internet.
If you are not sure about a particular date, check the nearest dates (3-5 days before and after the scheduled date). You can easily find cheaper tickets or subscribe to a destination – there is such a function on many websites for buying tickets and get the best prices by mail.
Offers Special offers can arrange because of the sale of airline tickets during the closing season, the opening of a new direction in the airline or just to attract customers. Of course, tickets for special offers have their drawbacks, for example, they cannot be returned or can be done only partially, and there is a restriction in terms of baggage and so on.
To find special offers, you can subscribe to newsletters from several airlines or use aggregator sites that collect information on many airlines and ticket agencies.
If you are looking for tickets in incognito mode, the aggregators will not be able to assess your status by previous requests and the price will not change in a big way.
Change of arrival point:
If you fly from the capital of one country to the capital or a large metropolis of another, you can reduce the ticket price if you change your destination. For example, if you need to get to Berlin from Moscow, you can take a ticket to Dresden, and from there get to Berlin by road. In less popular cities, airports charge lower fees than in capitals, which means that the ticket price will be lower.
These are airlines that provide a minimum of services and the cheapest flights. Here is a list of such companies flying in Russia:
