Travel Tips and Tricks 2020

By now you should be planning your 2020 spring, summer, winter, or long vacations. Why? Read these travel tips for 2020 and plan the best vacations of your life! This is travel tips and tricks 2020.

Are you trying to squeeze the most out of every holiday moment to make it the best trip possible?

Seasoned travellers will each have their list of travel do’s to ensure they get the most out of their holiday.

But while the experts will tell you, having the best trip starts with careful planning, there is much more one can do to make it the trip of a lifetime. One of which is booking at the right time. 

Whether you’re a travel newbie or a frequent flyer here are fail-safe travel hacks to maximise your time away:

Plan with a local expert

One of the most repeated "complaints" I read is: "I wish I knew that before I visited your country". There are many attractions, monuments, museums, restaurants, hotels, routes, etc, that only a local travel agent can suggest. If you want to live a full experience and get the most out of your vacation, talk to a local travel consultant on the country you're going to visit. This is my second advice, which I'll explore further on the next question.

Why use a travel agent to book your vacation?

There are so many reasons to book your travel with the help of a travel agent that I'm going to focus on some of the most important ones, from my perspective, of course.

Time: some people enjoy the whole experience of planning their own vacation, selecting a destination and choosing accommodation, gathering ideas of what to do, and places to see. But this is a very time-consuming task and almost always, something goes wrong. My advice is, save time and plan your vacation with a travel consultant. A trained expert that knows everything about your travel destination. They will make sure you get the absolute most out of your time there. No hassles, no worries, no time wasted.
No Fine Print: you have probably come across with those "too good to be true" online travel deals. You select your booking and everything seems fine until the checkout step where you are presented with extras fees unveiled only in that final moment. A travel consultant will guide you through your vacation plan with the clearest information with no hidden fees or fine print. When the day of your travel arrives, you'll know exactly what to expect and there will be no bad surprises to ruin your vacation.  
Uncertainty: you have also probably booked one of those standard vacation deals and immediately starting thinking if anything went wrong, if you chose the right options, and the best deals. That feeling of anxiety can be a terrible thing but with the help of a good travel consultant that is something you will never have to experience. A travel agent responds to every answer and clears any doubt you may have and, even if you change your mind about something in your travel plan, they will adjust it to fit your needs in no time and with no worries.

Book early

The early bird does get the worm in travel. While it’s not too late to make a last-minute 2019 holiday happen, now is the best time to start planning your 2020 trip too.

You can travel in 2020 at 2019 prices if you’re clever by booking your Europe and Britain holiday by 3 October 2019. Visit the website, select one of Trafalgar’s presale 2020 itineraries, and get a 10% discount plus you’ll avoid inflation. Not only do you save big, but you also get the choice of your departure dates. Don’t think it’s too early – those 2020 seats are selling out fast!

Do some research

Decide what you want from your holiday and where you would like to visit, to help your travel consultant tailor your dream trip.

“Research the places you are going to visit before you go for maximum value,” suggests Janis Woolaway, a past Trafalgar guest. “Even after you’ve booked your trip, reading some books, listening to music and even visiting that destination’s restaurant in your home town, will help you know what to expect and, even more importantly, get you excited for the real thing!”

Be prepared

Just like travel insurance (an absolute must, even though you hope never to use it), it is crucial that you have your paperwork organised before you board your flight.

“Swap copies of important documents in case the originals get lost,” was one creative tip from Elma Lourens. And she says: “Always ask for the business card of your hotel so a taxi will know where to take you in case you get lost.”

That’s valuable advice, especially when travelling to an unfamiliar city, or when there are language barriers. You also never know what Wi-Fi service you’ll have access to, or if you’ll be able to connect to the Internet at all. It’s best to be prepared.

Maximise your time away

International flights can be long and tiring. Beat any traces of jet lag or tiredness, and get your bearings, by planning to arrive before your trip starts.

“Arrive two days before… and stay one day later at the hotel,” suggests Maxleigh Derman, a regular guest, who has booked at least eight Trafalgar trips in countries ranging from Mexico and Ireland to Hungary.

“Trafalgar is superb; I love it,” says Derman. He also usually travels with his grandchildren, and his last trip was to Jordan in May.

Experience to the max

“Spend your travel budget seeing things and opting for experiences, not buying too many souvenirs,” suggests Wendy Brien. While there’s proof that experiences can last longer than a souvenir, Rentia van der Walt agrees: “Try, do, feel, taste, hear and smell everything.”

With these travel tips and triks, you can make your 2020 holiday dreams a reality.
