4 Tips to Planning A Great Spring BreakSubmitted by Mission Financial Planning on February 14th, 2020
Over the years, I have found that one of the most important pieces of any vacation is the ease of traveling to that destination. I don’t care how wonderful the final location may be, if the journey includes multiple flights, delays, lost luggage, and poor customer service, then I would prefer to stay home and work.
As a creature of habit, I know what I like and what works for my family. When it comes to some much needed down time, I take comfort in the idea of knowing that my travel plans are likely to go smoothly because I plan ahead.
When planning my family’s spring break, I look for the following criteria:
- Locations with a large variety of flight options and carriers which value customer service in an otherwise struggling industry.
- Available activities for Everybody! Moms and Dads included.
- Substantial choices of traditional accommodations. (i.e. Easy access to hotel chains and rental car companies where you can use/earn rewards points)
- Phone service. Staying connected (or at least the option to) brings us peace when we’re away from home.
Sometimes, just swimming in a pool in a different state or playing golf near a beach (or desert) is enough to recharge our batteries. Visiting a spa in the mountains or seeing a show in Las Vegas could also do the trick. Wherever you decide, when you plan early and consider the “Journey” as well as the destination, the chances of enjoying your Spring Break improve.
Good Luck and Safe Travels!
