Travelling more and seeing the world is at the top of many people’s to-do lists, but things can soon get in the way that put your plans on hold. Work, social engagements and a lack of money can all be holding you back from seeing the world. But as with many things, you need to overcome the hurdles to help you achieve the things you want to do.
Make travel possible in 2019 with the following advice.
Think about where you’d like to go
Travel offers endless possibilities, which can sometimes make it difficult to decide where you should go. Make a list and get travel inspiration by reading travel diaries for an insight into different locations. Make sure you include the destinations that might feel out of reach right now – nothing is too ambitious! Visualising your travels can help you get the travel bug, making you more likely to pursue your travel ambitions. If you’d prefer to travel with friends, ask if there’s anywhere they’d like to visit that will allow you to make plans together.
Learn to save for travel
Travel costs money, but you can make a healthy savings fund for your travels if you put your mind to it. Having a goal in mind is a good motivator to save money, and will make turning down nights out or buying fewer clothes easier to swallow. Debt consolidation loans are great for combining your debts into one simple payment that’s easy to manage to allow you to free up more money for savings. Save as much as you can by cutting back and you’ll soon have what you need to explore the world.
Embrace city breaks
City breaks are the perfect way to see more of the world without having to spend a fortune or take a lot of time off work. Some top city breaks include destinations in Europe like Barcelona, Copenhagen, and Venice. Some flights are cheaper than UK train tickets, allowing you to enjoy a city break for much less than you’d expect. With a city break, you can set off on a Friday and return Sunday so that you don’t even have to take any time off work! Search for the cheapest flights using Skyscanner and enjoy jetting off for some mini adventures to really make the most of travel.
Keep an eye out for bargains
Finding the right deal can help you enjoy travel for much less, allowing you to explore places you never even thought were possible with your budget. Jack’s Flight Club is a great way to find out about the latest flight deals, or you can sign up to Travelzoo for some fantastic package deals. Having your savings ready to go means you can take advantage of top offers when they come around, including last-minute deals.
Travelling offers so many wonderful experiences, and once you start getting a feel for it – you won’t want to stop. Where will 2019 take you? Start planning your adventures now and make travel possible next year.
