It’s the end of November and you may not have used all of your vacation days for this year. Especially with the covid pandemic, many of us haven’t taken an actual vacation this year at all.
As unbelievable as it may sound for a travel advisor, the last time we were on vacation was exactly 1 year ago when we spent 2 weeks in Hawaii. So if you are like us, you may have a block of vacation days to use-it-or-lose-it. If you are lucky, you’ll have a few months in 2021 to use your leftover vacation days.
The team at My Vacation Lady, can guide you to what is open to tourism and the Covid protocol and entrance requirements for those travel destinations.
Here are some ideas on how to use those left over vacation days.
- PLAN EARLY
While there may be availability for Christmas/New Year’s week at some destinations, planning earlier is always better. There is usually better availability and pricing if you book earlier rather than later.
- PUT SOMEONE IN CHARGE OF VACATION PLANNING
If you are not the kind of person who is good at making plans, put another family member in charge of getting vacation plans in order. After talking about your budget and dreams, have 1 designated person get the ball rolling and book your vacation.
- BREAK UP YOUR VACATION TIME INTO A LONGER VACATION AND THEN SOME LONG WEEKENDS
If you don’t think you can afford more than 1 major vacation a year, lock in the time for your longer vacation and then schedule time off around some longer weekends. Taking a few Fridays-Mondays off and doing some fun stuff locally doesn’t have to cost a lot but can also help you rejuvenate a bit.
- DON’T GO IT ALONE
For those busy professionals, who never seem to take all of their vacation time, hire a travel professional who can help you plan and book vacations that you’ll enjoy. Rather than spending your hard earned money on a resort that looked great online or going to a destination that isn’t what you were hoping for, a good travel professional can help design stress free vacation.
The team at My Vacation Lady are experts at helping you use all your vacation days 🙂 We can customize a vacation or honeymoon for you based on your dreams and budget.
Let us help plan your next vacation!
