• Leave Unnecessary Items at Home

Since every airline and air carrier are charging for checked-in luggage, it will be a wonderful idea to travel light and bring things that could easily fit on a carry-on bag. If there will be things that are absolutely necessary, consider sending some of your belongings ahead of time to your destination. These things are the ones that you really won’t need for the journey.

• Make a Plan Ahead of Time

Holiday travel planning is never too early. You may want to grab the opportunity in looking for the lower rates when seats are still well available. You can plan as early as 6 months prior, and you would be delighted as how much it will save you, financially and mentally. Follow airline and cruise related Twitter accounts, or sign up for notifications via email with your preferred airline of choice, this way you will be given the chance to book them before they are even available to the general public.

• Know the Best Day to Travel

If you really want to enjoy your holiday, its best to avoid the travel rush. No one wants to be stuck in a traffic jam for three hours when they could have been sipping their margaritas on their perfect travel getaway, right? Try travelling on Monday or on a Tuesday as the other days are when people often rush to where they want to go and eventually clogging up the highway, bus stations and airports.

5 Reasons Why Cruising Is The Best Way To Travel

Corsica-8172

What is your idea of a dream vacation? Does it involve a hassle-free, relaxing accommodation without having any transportation issues? Do you love great food? Are you looking for a variety of activities that you can choose from, which may include scuba diving, sight-seeing; the luscious white sand beach relaxation or a dip in the pool? If your answer is yes to all, then a cruise is your perfect travel getaway.

As we celebrate the National Cruise Week, here are 5 reasons why cruising is the best way to travel:

It’s hassle-free. We know planning a vacation may be a headache to some, most especially if you are planning for a family trip. You have to consider the places to dine, the transportation schedule, the airport and train transfers and the traffic along the way, check-in time for your accommodations and the list goes on that can keep you busy for days.

With a cruise travel trip, you can just book a reservation and think of all activities you can do while on it. Never mind the hassle of a conventional trip at all.

You may sample destinations for your future travel. Not everyone is a Florida person, and it’s safe to say that not everyone loves the Caribbean. What if you booked a week-long reservation to Florida only to find out that you prefer being in the Caribbean. With a cruise, you can experience a little of each place and then decide where to stay next time!

You get the same accommodation, always! How many times do we hate packing and unpacking our things after every time we decide to visit a new place while on vacation? Cruising is all about relaxation, you will be in a different place by the time you wake up and all you have to do is to step out of the cruise ship and enjoy. You don’t have to worry about getting your rooms clean as it will be made ready by the time you call it a day!

It’s your money’s worth. Traveling conventionally can get pricey once you add up the cost of accommodations, airfare, food, transportation and activities. When you are on a cruise, you don’t have to worry about any of that. Entertainment is provided for you. The food served will always be as great as if you were dining in a luxury 5-star restaurant, and it’s all included in one low price.

It’s kid-friendly. How many times have you dreamt of having a quality, quiet time with your beloved better half while enjoying the scenery? You would not like to spoil that by chasing your kids all day, right? Most of the cruise ships employ highly-qualified staff to look after your children as you relax and spend time alone with yourself or with your partner.

Cruising used to be only for the extremely wealthy and the popular crowd, now anyone and everyone can cruise on any budget to just about anywhere. Enjoy big saving when you book your cruise through THL Vacations today!

When most think about Cancun, Mexico, their first thought is a big escape. Many have the notion of untamed parties, fun under the sun, and water sports. All are widely available in this exotic piece of paradise. However there’s a lot more to Cancun than that! It’s excellent for those who love parties and the clubbing scene, or for visitors who just love to lay under the sun while sipping their favorite cocktails. It’s also equally enjoyable for those who are curious about the Mayan history and culture an exclusive travel, or a strictly colorful vacation.

While discovering the wonders of the beaches and town of Cancun, take a glance around and you’ll realize a town with a chic and distinct history that dates all the way back to the Mayan times.

The name Cancun started showing up on maps in the eighteenth century, when the Spanish colonists began exploring the picturesque town. Cancun was originally famed by the Mayan’s as Nizuc, which means “point of grass”.

Places like El Rey permit folks to go to the ruins of 47 structures, where you may wander through spiritual areas where pieces of wall paintings justify what life was like once when the city was still a Mayan hub. The remains of the pyramid is still the tallest structure of this extraordinary travel destination, and is regarded to be a site where individuals of high importance were buried and offerings were given.

Numerous sites similar to this can be found around the city, like Chichen Itza, Tulum and Coba, where anyone can explore and wander through historical ruins that can’t be found any place else on Earth.
