For many of us, travelling is one of the biggest joys in life. From experiencing new cultures to meeting new people and seeing all that the world has to offer, packing your bags and leaving home is a rush like no other! Here we will look at some of the best ways to ensure that you travel comfortably and in style.
Consider Flying Privately
Flying via private jet is likely on everyone’s bucket list, and for good reason. Flying privately allows you to travel in the utmost style and comfort to your destination, with the added convenience of no security lines or boarding groups, but they do come with a higher cost. Luckily, there are ways to bag private flights for a reduced cost and that is by searching for ‘empty leg’ flights.
Empty-leg flights are around 25% to 75% cheaper than regular private charter fares and if you can be flexible with dates and locations, you’re sure to find one that suits your travel needs. These flights are chartered privately by others and are then left empty when heading off to their next destination, making them available for you to grab a bargain.
Ensure That You Are Comfortable
From your airport outfit to your holiday clothes, you want to make sure you feel comfortable during your trip. You will want to opt for sturdy shoes such as trainers that won’t hurt your feet if you are exploring the airport or have a walk to your hotel once you land and that can be easily slipped on and off during your flight. Stretchy and comfortable clothing like leggings or joggers are also a great idea for your flight and wearing layers will help you to be prepared for any temperature changes that often happen on the plane.
For long-haul flights, you should be aware of the increased risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) due to sitting down for a long time. You should look to walk around a stretch your legs every few hours or even purchase a pair of compression socks which help to improve blood flow in your legs and reduce the likelihood of any problems.
For many, travelling in style goes hand-in-hand with relaxation. You should loosely plan what you are doing on your trip and what you need to bring with you at risk of having to rush around to pick up last-minute items.
Having an organised suitcase can help reduce stress and you can DIY this by dividing your suitcase into compartments or even buy entire sets dedicated to making the best use of your space. Clear toiletry bags are a great way to ensure that, once you arrive at your destination, your clothes will have been saved from any potential leaks but also that you know where everything is.
When it comes to planning what you are doing once you get there, you could search online to see what the top tourist experiences are or book a couple of tours. This will leave you plenty of time to be spontaneous and explore while also giving a little bit of structure to ensure that you see everything that you want to see while you are there!
