How to Prepare for Your Next Holiday

By  |  0 Comments

If you’ve booked yourself a summer holiday this year then it will soon be time to get yourself packed and prepped ready for some well-deserved time off. Packing ahead of time is of course a given, as the earlier you pack the more prepared you’ll feel when holiday time rolls around. We’ve popped some tips below on things you should look to sort out before you go that sometimes get left to the last minute.


Sort out your travel money

This is something you shouldn’t leave until the last minute, as you’ll struggle to find the best deal. If you travel often and use the same currency then it might be worth getting yourself a prepaid currency card, so you can top it up as and when you need it. There are plenty of these available on the high street with places like Thomas Cook and the Post Office offering them. One of the benefits of these cards is that you can top them up whilst you’re away if you need too, which is handy if you need to be flexible with your holiday finances. You can also load up multiple cards with different currencies which is great if you need to switch between countries. They work just the same as a debit card, so they’re easy to use and handy to have!


Book in those beauty treatments

Don’t worry we’ve all been there, the holiday is fast approaching, and you haven’t found any time to get your body holiday ready. If you’re not a fan of wearing make up on holiday, then why not try getting your eyelashes tinted or lifted, a great way to forgo mascara for your break! Brands like benefit offer brow and lash tint services, which can be a great way to get yourself ready to jet off! It’s always a good idea to book in treatments early, so you don’t run out of time to get it all done before you go. Some beauty salons might also be busy during peak summer times, so booking ahead will save you the last-minute stress. There are some at home options you can do, such as waxing or tanning (if you need a little pre-holiday glow to hit the beach) so keep an eye on places such as Boots or Superdrug for beauty offers to help with at home pampering.


Get your travel Insurance

Insurance is always one of those things you need to organise, but somehow always ends up last on the list. It’s important when looking for a policy that you get one that is suited to your needs. If you need insurance for pre-existing medical conditions then there are policies out there that will cover you, so it’s always best to take your time looking for the right policy for you. Remember to consider where you’re travelling to, how long for and what you might need covering! This isn’t something you should scrimp on as it does matter what is covered, especially if you do have any illnesses or issues. Getting the right policy will just give you the peace of mind you need in case anything goes wrong with your travelling, luggage or you do find yourself falling ill on holiday. Nobody wants that but it’s always better to prepare for the worst and hope for the best!


Hopefully these tips will remind you to getting a little more organised before you next travel and you can then take the time to fully relax and enjoy your holiday!
