How To Plan A Hassle-Free Weekend Trip

A good weekend trip is, without a doubt, one of the best ways to enjoy life.

However, without a little planning and organization, the chances of the dream of the perfect trip becoming a nightmare are high!

With that in mind, in this post we will present important planning tips that will help make your trip unforgettable .

Choosing a destination for your weekend trip

To choose your destination, take a few questions into consideration. First, review your travel budget. Then assess which places you would like to visit and the time you have.

Keep in mind that traveling to distant places to stay for a few days may not be ideal. Finally, also consider the characteristics of the place according to your “travel spirit”. Adventure? Quiet? Beach? Mountain ?

Do A Good Research

Searching it is possible to find airline tickets with incredible offers.
Believe me: a good trip starts well before the day you finally pack your bags !

Traveling during the weekend can be more expensive than other days. That’s because demand increases significantly from Friday to Sunday, pushing up ticket prices.

And if you’re traveling by plane, remember that ticket prices tend to go up as the departure date approaches.

Even so, it’s not uncommon for lightning deals to come up, so do your research!

  • Check out some search sites to find cheap airline tickets:
  • take off.com
  • eDestinations
  • Expedia
  • Google Flights
  • Kayak
  • world
  • Skyscanner
  • Submarine Travel
  • ViajaNet
  • Voopter
  • And if you are going to travel by plane, there is one last tip regarding the purchase of the ticket :

Book a trip at a time that allows you to leave early so as not to be late, in case something unforeseen occurs.

Bear in mind that if you leave work at 6:00 pm and it takes half an hour to get to the airport, with a flight scheduled for 7:30 pm, what will you do if you encounter a traffic jam?

If traveling by car, remember to review the vehicle.

Using tags for fast passage, such as ConectCar or Sem Parar, for example, can be of great value to save time on heavily toll roads. Even more if your trip is during the weekend!

packing the bags

First of all: make the famous list!

This is essential to pack your suitcase as conveniently as possible.

This way, you guarantee that you won’t forget anything and will only take the fundamentals to the destination.

You can do this in the good old notebook, or opt for some productivity apps, which are very useful in this situation.

When putting clothes in the suitcase, experts suggest a mixture of techniques for a perfect organization.

Here are some tips:

  • Usually fold large pieces such as coats and blazers;
  • Fold small and medium clothes into rectangles;
  • Roll up the thin fabrics so as not to wrinkle.

Socks can be tucked inside shoes, while underwear can be tucked into small gaps to save space.

The toilet bag should be big enough to accommodate your hygiene, health and beauty products.

Create a script, but also be open to possibilities.

The better the planning, the better the weekend trip
Planning an itinerary can be very useful, especially when we don’t have a lot of time to waste.

It doesn’t need to be very detailed. Just know what are the opening hours of the places to be visited.

It is really essential to write down as much information as possible, so as not to arrive at your destination without knowing what to do or where to start.

Leaving room for improvisation in the script is also always interesting, because we don’t always manage to do everything according to plan.

In addition, it is always good to be aware of what is happening around you, as you may discover new activities and attractions only after you arrive at your destination.

Avoid Carrying Excess Luggage

Finally, travel light and get rid of excess baggage!

Remember that it will only be a weekend, but traveling light also makes boarding taxis, UBERs or buses much easier, making everything easier.
