If you are one of the many people with a #2017TravelBucketlist then keep on reading as I share some simple tips on how to plan smart for your next trip.

Traveling, you should know that there’s a good amount of preparation needed for every trip, from airfare, hotel accommodation, itinerary, travel documentation and insurances. It is quite a task but with an organized plan, everything is possible. Besides, preparing for it beforehand will save you a lot of hassle.

But if you are the type of person who loves to travel but not quite a good planner.  You should consider a travel management like Take Off Philippines (who by the way just partnered with Travelpros, one of the Best Travel Agencies in the Country and a pillar in Local and International Tour Package Services since 1993).

How to Plan Smart For Your Next Trip

Now lets go on to my top 5 tips on How to Plan Smart For Your Next Trip

1. Do a Background Check on your Destination

Google reviews or do a quick research on Where to stay, where to roam around the vicinity and where to eat around the metro. These are basic things to know about a new place so you can set a rough itinerary already. Blog reviews and DIY itineraries will be your bestfriends as both can help you a lot in providing travel tips and information on your trip.

2. Safety

Being asians, we love a good discount and promo. And in the Philippines, we live for the Piso Fare that some airlines offer. Through their good and convincing marketing strategy of “Php 1” airfare, a lot of customers are entice to book on their site. It is cheap, no doubt about it but isurances are usually removed by the airline that’s why the price is very appealing. Don’t make a mistake by flying without a travel insurance. You never know what can happen. It’s better to be safe than to be sorry.

3. Prepare and bring necessary Travel Documents

I’m in a couple of travel groups and a lot of Filipinos are always asking questions regarding Immigration and some are even telling their horror stories on how the were offloaded (not allowed to fly to their destination). Always keep your travel documents and forms ready, especially if you are a first time traveler (outside the Philippines). Keep these travel documents handy: DFA-issued passport, unexpired visa, return ticket, company ID, Letter of Approved Leave, Affidavit of Support with Undertaking, DSWD-issued Travel Clearance and more.

4. Check out the List of Holidays and Long Weekends

If you want to have a more enjoyable and hassle-free vacation, before filing for a leave make sure to check out the list of Holidays and Long weekends this 2017, you might get a few extra days if you match your trips with it.

5. Attend Travel Fairs for more Discounts and Tour Packages

Every year, the travel community are gathering together in a travel tour expo wherein you can get exclusive travel deals for Boracay, Palawan, Bohol, Davao, and more. You can grab some of the best airline seat sales, discounted hotel accommodations, and all-in tour packages.
