As much as everyone would love to take a long three-month holiday to the mountains of Canada or the coast of France, plenty of people have to settle with a few weeks stint somewhere local (or just over the border). Planning a short holiday requires a different approach to a long vacation. You have a shorter amount of time, you need to cram more in, you have less time to take it easy (unless that is what you want to do) and you have to get ready for jet lag. So how do you go planning out a short holiday? Here is how you do it:
- Assess why you want to go on a holiday for
Are you going to relax or are you going for adventure? Determining why we are going on holidays in the first place will give us some clear perspective on what we’ve after in terms of a destination. A beachy, relaxing feeling could mean going to Bali. An adventure could mean heading to the South Island of New Zealand. Figure out what you want your holiday for and it will help you in the long run.
- Crunch your figures
Once you have a rough idea on what you want from your holiday, take a look at your budget and see what you can afford. With a firm idea on how much you need to spend on your holiday, you’ll be able to narrow down your destinations.
- See if the destination offers what you want
With a firm idea on what destinations will work for your short holiday, compare the options and see what offers you the best time. Compare them and assess what is going to make your holiday a more enjoyable experience.
- Consider the length and time you’ll spend in the destination
Finally, consider how long you will need in the destination. Take into account the flight, jet lag and other factors to ensure that you get the best out of your short period of time.
