Everyone is naturally a lot less stressed on holiday when everything is put into place well before they go. This means lot’s of preparation if you want to be stress free by the time you get abroad! Failing to prepare is preparing to fail as they say, so it’s important you get everything ready to avoid accidents, tantrums and more. Read on to find out how you can prepare for your holiday!
Book A Holiday
Before you start preparing for a holiday you need a holiday to go on. There are loads of sites out there that can offer you cheaper deals, such as lastminute.com and Icelolly.com. You can choose to book well in advance so you have months to prepare or you can choose to book as little as a few days before, however this leaves you a lot less time to prepare.
Depending on where you’ve chosen to go on holiday you may need to book some injections to stop you getting ill while away. You should consult your GP, explain where you’re going and see what they recommend. You can’t be too careful!
Get Travel Insurance
If you’re going on an adventure holiday then it’s highly recommended you get travel insurance. However, you should remember that you could fall ill and need treatment no matter where you are. It could even be a case of falling by the pool or getting food poisoning – that could happen on any holiday. You don’t want to risk thousands in medical bills, so travel insurance is the best way to cover you for injury and illness. You might even be covered for loss of belongings, but you’ll need to research providers to find out who has the best policy to suit you. At the very least you should get a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). An EHIC can greatly reduce the cost of any medical care you receive, plus it’s free!
Purchase Everything You Need
There will be a number of things you need for your own individual holiday, so we couldn’t possibly list everything here. Here’s a list of the most important things you may need to buy if you haven’t already got them:
- A passport/passports for family.
- Holiday clothes for day/night (including protective clothes for the kids if you have kids).
- Swimming gear.
- Mosquito repellent.
- A foreign adapter.
- Mini first aid kit.
- Sweets for the plane.
- Activities for the kids (if you have kids).
Depending on who you’ve booked your flight with and what’s included, you may also need to put things such as holiday transfers into place to make sure you get to where you’re going quickly and efficiently with little waiting around.
You might want to research where you’re going before you get there so you can work out the best things to do there and make a holiday itinerary. You can use websites such as Trip Advisor for this, where you can read reviews from real people who’ve been to where you’re going!
