Many people are looking forward to just getting away somewhere nice in 2022 as Covid-19 has restricted a lot of people from going anywhere abroad over the past few years. With the lockdown restrictions eased within most countries there seems to be a surge in bookings in 2022. This is great for the airline and hotel industry which has seen some significant blows in the last few years to their revenue. Due to this relaxation, many people are looking to do something a little different in 2022 and make up for lost time. Here are some things that you could consider.
Upgrade Your Flights
If you haven’t been on a long-haul business class or first-class flight before, then this needs to be on the bucket list. Not only do you manage to get a far superior seat on the plane, but you also get special treatment at the airport. This will normally include a dedicated check-in, fast track through security and a nice spacious, convenient lounge for you to relax in before you get your priority.
Upgrading a flight can be pretty costly therefore it is important to look at the prices in advance and see if you can get a bargain. If not, if you have a level of loyalty with a specific airline or airline group you may be able to get upgraded via exchanging loyalty points. Airlines and hotels love to reward loyalty and will offer people the chance to exchange loyalty points generally for upgrades. In addition to this, if you are really loyal, you may even find that they upgrade you for free without the need to exchange any points!
Go with a Group
Instead of travelling with your family or partner, why not look to travel with a group? This could be a lot more fun and could even save you a lot of money if you are booking things via group bookings. Instead of booking an apartment, you could book a larger villa with your own pool that accommodates all of the people within your party.
It is important (especially if travelling in a big group) that you look at the travel insurance that is offered for these types of trips and make sure you tailor it for your needs. You can have this include things such as flight and hotel issues but also medical cover and loss of luggage. Changing the insurance level to suit your individual needs is important to make sure you are covered for everything you want and that you don’t have sleepless nights worrying.
Swim with Dolphins
If you have never swam with a dolphin before then this is a once in a lifetime opportunity that is fantastic! With dolphins being very curious and friendly animals, you would have so much fun. A lot of different places do this throughout the globe, but it is important to do a bit of research into how the dolphins are being treated. You can normally get yourself a picture with the dolphin and also swimming with it – you hold onto their fin, and they will happily take you for a ride! In these sorts of parks there are also normally other options like feeding or even swimming with sharks. Most people never normally get to do these sorts of things therefore if you have the opportunity, why not go all out and do it properly!
Ready for your holiday? There are so many ways to make it more exciting than you might ever have imagined. Take a look at how you can make your first major holiday of 2022 more fun now!
