Are you planning a holiday? Do you want to escape to somewhere where there’s more sun, more fun, less stress and less hassle? Everyone needs to get away from the daily grind at times and a holiday in Brisbane could be just the ticket that you need to recharge, re-set and re-wire yourself for the year. But holidays are a lot of work. Planning, booking, packing, travelling and the rest. Let us help you take some of the stress away from this process by looking at a few ways to best organise your getaway.
Accommodation can quickly get booked out – especially during peak times like school holidays, Easter and over Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Save yourself the hassle and the headache of calling a thousand venues at the last minute and book before the rush. You’ll thank yourself when you arrive to your booked holiday cabin or caravan park in Brisbane, or wherever you’re going.
Look for Specials
While we’re on the topic of bookings, one thing to do is to keep an eye and an ear out for any potential specials or discount offers for accommodation. You can often save a pretty penny this way, leaving you more spending money for your getaway.
This tip is for those that like to know what they’re doing ahead of time. While some of us enjoy lazing around, reading a book or catching up on some Netflix, there are others that like to make use of every last moment of their time away with their families. Instead of arriving and scratching your head and wondering what exactly you’re going to do with all this time, get online before you leave and plan your trip. Check out the local attractions, tours, events and everything ahead of time and arrive prepared and ready to have some fun.
Arriving in a new place can be a bit daunting, especially if you have no idea how to get around. It’s well worth checking out just how you’ll be getting from point A to point B before you leave, so you don’t arrive and have to figure it all out on the spot! Many cities have a variety of public transport options, so you should be all right. For more information about getting around Brisbane, check out our blog post on transport in Brisbane.
Arrange House Sitters
Going away and leaving your home, pets and valuables can be stressful – so much so that you might spend too much time worrying on your getaway to truly enjoy yourself. Instead of forking out money for a kennel or cattery and worrying about your home, why not ask a friend or a family member to house sit? They can feed your four-legged friends for you. Just remember to give them the WI-FI password.
