Everyone deserves to treat themselves now and again. The demand for a good holiday has never been so astonishingly high, so it’s time to get ahead of the game. If you work hard, you should play all the harder, and a luxury holiday can be just the thing to tick all your boxes; fun, adventure, excitement and relaxation. Perfect!
Of course, an old saying comes into play here; if you’re going to do something, do it properly! Consequently, here is your guide on how to treat yourself to a luxury holiday.
Empty Legs Flights
Many make the mistake of thinking that their luxury holiday begins the moment they enter their five-star hotel. Well, it’s not quite so. Private jets are the perfect place to begin all the fun-filled proceedings, and this once elitist experience has never been so affordable and accessible.
This is largely down to the empty legs flights schemes from companies like VistaJet, which open up the luxury travel experience to all. Empty legs flights are when those flying the private jet need to make a one way return trip to bed down for the night or refuel the aircraft, and subsequently discount their passenger prices to make a bit of extra revenue along the way. It’s a win-win situation for everybody, so definitely take advantage of them!
Hotels or Adventure?
The best luxury holidays often have a pinch of compromise. If five-star hotels are your thing, that’s totally okay and valid. However, if you’re an adventurer at heart, your holidays should probably amount to more than just traveling thousands of miles to sit by a pool or enjoy the perks of an en suite in your room. Often, these once in a lifetime experiences are about the unique experiences and all the thrills they provide, so you may need to make a choice; fun or relaxation.
For example, if you’re going to New York City for your trip, don’t be afraid to enjoy the hospitality of a three- or four-star hotel if its more affordable and situated closer to all the action. You’ll be out all day anyway, and your holiday will be a lot more affordable and may even spend you an extra day or two in the city due to the lower costs. In the end, wasting your money isn’t part and parcel of a luxury holiday; be smart and calculated, and you’ll have a great, but affordable, time.
Schedule Your Time
Sticking with theme of planning and smart decisions, luxury holidays are best enjoyed when their mapped out from the start. If you know where to go, what to do, and when to do it, your experience will be that much more fluid, enjoyable and accessible. Of course, you shouldn’t cancel out any moments of spontaneity, but draft up a schedule so that you always have something that you could be doing at any moment.
The best luxury holidays have a rhythm to them. There’s never a dull moment or dip in momentum, so by creating a schedule you stay focused in your holiday goals. For example, if you’re going to Rome, print out opening times of the colosseum and all the maps of where to go. This will help you make snap decisions, avoid wasting time, and ring every last drop of joy out of your
