Travel Like a Pro with These Tips

Posted on:

Whether you’re looking to get out and explore, efficiently execute a work trip, or relax in luxury, traveling should never feel like a burden. Travel savvy comes from experience, and as industry experts, we’ve gathered a few essential tips to help you make the most of your next getaway.

Flexibility is Key
When preparing for travel, it’s important to have a general itinerary mapped out. However, it’s even more important to expect the unexpected. Realize that no matter how perfect your plan may be, things will not always go as expected – and that’s okay – in fact, that’s great! Part of what makes traveling so worthwhile is a break from the predictable. Delayed flights, inclement weather, and mismanaged rentals are just a few of the things that could throw a curveball your way. By preparing for what you can beforehand, then letting go of your expectations during your trip, you’re able to be more adaptable and simply enjoy the ride.

Quality Over Quantity
With customer review sites and travel blogs aplenty, one of the most common mistakes travelers make is trying to hit every prime spot their destination has to offer. If your travel plans bring you to Portland, for instance, you’ll quickly realize that the possibilities are endless; from cheersing at local-favorite craft breweries, to eating your way through the city’s top food trucks, rooting for the Blazers and Timbers, perusing the shelves at Powell’s Books, and more. While this all sounds exciting, it’s important to consider how your energy level, transportation time, and unexpected obstacles may factor in. Rather than cramming your time trying to see everything, consider choosing a few quality activities and really doing them justice.

Home Away From Home
When you have a comfortable place to stay that’s conveniently located for your traveling purposes – whether that’s business, pleasure, or anything in between – you’re more likely to have a positive experience. Where you stay sets a sturdy foundation for a successful trip, allowing you to fully discover your destination.
