When it comes to getting up and heading off to a new land – albeit for only a week or two – there are a bunch of things that come into play. You need to have every formality handled, you need to be mentally prepared, and you need to make sure everything is packed. There are many other factors that come into play, but those three are pretty significant for holidaymakers and travellers alike. 

The point about packing is and will always be one of the most important issues for someone travelling to another part of the world. It can be quite a tedious affair, and you can be left annoyed if you don’t get everything right. Packing and making sure you’ve taken what you need is one thing, but the process of hauling it all around for miles and miles isn’t something everyone enjoys either. It’s all worth it when you reach the destination, but shifting the luggage around isn’t fun, right? 

Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be as grueling as perhaps you might think. There are a few little tricks you can do to lower the strain on this particular workout. Here are a few ideas for you:

 

Plan Your Routes Out Beforehand  

If you know where you’re going, then you don’t have to worry about going the long way round when it comes to finding wherever it is you’re staying (or heading to next). Knowing a few shortcuts or being able to get to where you want to without hesitating is always going to be a bonus. Also, look at public transport routes as they’ll do you a huge favor – anything that means less carrying for you would be delightful. 

 

Don’t Pack Impulsively 

The more you have in your small or large cases will determine how difficult the journey will be, of course. If you have lots of essentials, then, by all means, pack them. If you’re feeling a little generous and want a few more luxury items on board, perhaps you should rethink and double-check what you’re doing. Sometimes a few things can stay at home!

 

Look For Something That’s Nice On The Hands 

When it comes to actually bringing in a suitcase to carry your items in, perhaps you should look at the ergonomic value of it. Something that costs very little or something that looks nice might work for you, but the novelty might wear off quickly when you realize that it’s not helping your poor fingers or spine. 

 

Find A Place To Store!

You don’t have to carry your luggage absolutely everywhere you go. Fortunately, there are places in big towns and cities alike that will take your stuff and store it for a reasonable fee. Places like stasher have properties scattered all over the place, and that will absolutely help you if ever you feel you need a rest!

 

Build Up A Little Strength! 

We’ll end on this small point. It’s something that will be able to help you with these particular issues, but it’s also something that can serve you well going forward, too. If you make yourself a little stronger than you are now, then you’re going to handle this kind of physical challenge a little easier. You’ll be mentally prepared for it a little better, too!

 

How to make your Airbnb listing stand out

If you are in the Airbnb management service industry, you need to make sure your Airbnb listing stands out from the rest. There’s usually a lot of competition amongst Airbnbs, so paying extra attention to your listing may be the edge you need to give your vacation rental property the boost it needs. Gone are the days where it is super easy to stand out. Nowadays, the travel accommodation market is fierce and you have to think outside the box to keep up.

If you wondering how to get your Airbnb listing to stand out, here are some tried and tested tips you may find very useful –

Take stunning photos

Like with many things online, visuals are very important in the Airbnb management service industry. It is best to get a professional photographer to take great shots of your rental property. The quality of the photographs have to be really good to get the attention of many travellers. So this is not an area you want to mess around with. The more photos you have, the better, so get your photographer to snap every detail of the property and show them all off.

Get the description right

The description is another important part you need to pay special attention to when listing a vacation rental property. It may be best to get another professional to handle this bit for you if you are not good with stringing words together. A good copywriter will be able to write a unique description with a title that pops! A good description will include the property’s amenities as well as all the important information about the location of the property. If you had a lovely Airbnb in a fantastic location like Cannes, you would want to include all the amazing facts about Cannes in your description to attract the interested travellers.

Be honest

There is a thin line between being honest and being dishonest. Many people cross over that line on a daily basis especially in business. It is one thing to show off the amazing things about your rental property and it is another thing to simply lie. When it comes to getting your listing to stand out, show off your best parts but don’t exaggerate or make things up.

Set competitive prices

Having competitive prices is a good way to get more travellers interested in your listing.  Ensure you set your prices to reflect the changing demand, with fluctuations throughout the week and year.

New and Improved Bucket Lists

*Collaborative post.

The ongoing coronavirus situation has affected just about every facet of modern life. It’s made things that were commonplace unthinkable, and things that were unthinkable commonplace – and it’s done so in a matter of months.

One of the casualties of this period of change is the concept of a bucket-list. What fun is there in composing a list of things that you’re not going to be allowed to do for months?

Travel restrictions have brought the global tourism industry to a standstill. But the change probably runs deeper than that: we’ve all been given time to reflect on what’s important in life and what isn’t, and the likelihood is that this will effect our travel decisions long after the situation has cleared up, and some semblance of normality has reasserted itself.

So how might the bucket lists of the future look different?

Domestic Travel

The gradual easing of the lockdown restrictions will come in many stages – and some countries will doubtless progress faster than others. It’s certain that we’ll be free to move within the country before we’re able to move outside of it, and thus the next holiday you go on will almost certainly be a domestic break. This shouldn’t be viewed as a drawback: the United Kingdom is packed with gorgeous tourist attractions. You might visit a Cornish beach in August, or go on a hike through the Highlands of Scotland.

Any bucket list should account for what’s local and available – after all, you can pack in dozens of domestic trips for the same cost of one that takes you to the other side of the planet.

Environmental Concerns

A related issue is the environmental cost of long-haul flights. The lapse in global travel has caused a huge drop in global emissions – which many of us will be unwilling to contribute toward reversing.

One-off holidaymakers aren’t, on the scale of things, the worst producers of carbon emissions: most air miles are actually racked up by a minority of frequent fliers, and so we shouldn’t beat ourselves up too much over our flying habits. With that said, any step you can take to reduce your personal environmental impact is surely going to be a worthwhile one. A train from Brighton to Portsmouth Harbour will allow you to see just as much as a plane to somewhere more exotic – and at a fraction of the environmental cost!
