Whether you want to plan an unforgettable honeymoon or an all-inclusive week away for yourself, there’s no getting around the fact that a luxurious trip overseas doesn’t come without a hefty asking price. This is especially true if you decide to take the traditional route and visit a popular destination during the peak season.
The great thing about luxury getaways is that you don’t have to make a significant compromise to get the same experience for less. All you need to do is choose the right location at the right time and strategically plan your accommodation options. Here’s how you can take the vacation of your dreams without breaking the bank.
If you’re reading this post, you’ve already taken a step in the right direction. You’ll be surprised by the wealth of information available on the internet that will help you save money in every aspect of your travel plan. Take a few weeks to find the best prices for accommodation, fight options, tour agencies, local transport and everything else that your money will go towards.
Look out for promotions and deals that come around at certain times of the year. Many agencies offer a variety of complimentary upgrades, discounts and other value-added services for customers who find them at the right moment. Be sure to make use of points systems and rewards programs to get additional value back after your vacation.
Location, Location, Location
As mentioned earlier, every expensive destination has equally luxurious alternatives for a significantly lower cost. A week-long stay at a popular exotic island nation like the Maldives can set you back well over $10,000. For a fraction of the price, you can enjoy the plethora of luxurious hotels, activities and fine dining offered by countries such as Thailand.
Pattaya is a popular location in Thailand that has a lot to offer. There are a number of luxury beach resorts in Pattaya where you can spend a week for less than the cost of a few days in Hawaii or the Maldives. You’ll also be spoiled for choice by the cheap shopping, unique eating and unforgettable experiences available here.
Off Season is the Best Season
With a bit of research, you can find all the information you need to find out when the best time is to make your trip. Of course, going at the most affordable time may just put you face to face with a hurricane, so be sure to avoid going when there’s known to be nasty weather.
That said, you don’t need to take advantage of everything a luxury resort has to offer in the absolute best weather. By going during the off season, you will not only save money, but also be able to enjoy your desired location without having to push through piles of tourists around every corner.
If you make the right moves, you can easily treat yourself like a celebrity and enjoy your dream holiday without having celebrity wealth status. All the information you need to make this happen is at your fingertips. It simply comes down to putting it into practice.
