BEST WAY TO GET AWAY: PLANNED HOLIDAY OR SPONTANEOUS VACATION?


From the moment you select a destination, map an itinerary, and actually hit that ‘book’ button, you can already see precious moments forming in your head as you decide where to take your next great vacation. While there is certainly some thrill in planning a holiday, taking short breaks every now and then may help bring about some brilliant travel ideas.

Best Way to Get Away: Planned Holiday or Spontaneous Vacation?

Planned Holiday

When you plan your holiday, you give yourself and your travel companions an assurance that your getaway will be stress-free. You can expect a comfortable hotel room or suite, a reliable transportation schedule, and an itinerary that covers all the must-see attractions and the most amazing restaurants. Planning ahead enables you to experience all that you possibly could.

However, no matter how great your vacation-planning skills are, it is not always a guarantee that everything will run smoothly. A sudden downpour can ruin your carefully laid-out itinerary, and sticking to a schedule could limit your travel adventures. You could also miss out on current great deals whether on accommodations or airfare.

Planning your vacation ahead of time can lead you to fantastic dining options – at Anantara Vacation Club Seminyak Bali, even meal packages can be planned. Planning also helps you avoid inevitable hassles usually experienced on spontaneous trips, including lack of available accommodations or fully-booked flights. You can go on a holiday with a relaxed state of mind.

With a spontaneous holiday, everything’s on the table, and you’ll never know what surprises are in store. That can be fun! You might have to set your sights a little low, but moments of discovery can greet you from every corner. With a spontaneous trip, it can happen as soon as the next weekend… or tomorrow after work!

Can’t decide on an itinerary? No problem. You can book that spur-of-the-moment getaway, go on a walking tour of a city of your choice, and find unexpected delights: a restaurant favoured by locals not found in travel guides and blogs, a newly opened museum, or an off-the-beaten path night market. With a bit of care-free attitude, you can discover places on your own.

There are, of course, some drawbacks to unplanned holidays. For instance, you can’t go on an impulsive trip to countries with strict visa requirements. Making last-minute bookings on accommodation and flights could also be more expensive. Because you’re looking at potential destinations at the last minute, your options might be limited.

When planning a vacation, it is best to have a middle ground. For Anantara Vacation Club Points Owners, Bonus Breaks are great for quick vacations while longer stays can be arranged through Club Services. How you choose to vacation, whether spending it with the people you love or by yourself, can turn any holiday into a memorable adventure.
