No one likes to be told what to do. So we decided to tell you what not to do!
DON’T let the opinions of others deter you from traveling somewhere
Some may think a place is too dangerous, or may have had a bad experience there. This should not sway your decision to travel to a particular destination. Every person has a different experience. Don’t let someone else define your experience before you’ve even had it.
DON’T search for flights without using an incognito window in your browser
Flight search engines will sometimes use the cookies saved on your computer to see your past searches. They can use this information to alter the price that is quoted to you. You can avoid this by searching flights with an incognito tab.
DON’T plan out every minute of every day
Planning activities and sightseeing for every minute of the day is going to exhaust you. You will return home needing a vacation to recover. Leave some time to relax and enjoy your atmosphere. Take a day or two to just wander around your destination. It will also leave some flexibility if you end up wanting to partake in an activity that you had not known about.
DON’T let the rainy season stop you from going
Generally, the rainy season is off-peak tourist seasons for many destinations. This translates to fewer people, lower prices, etc. If you can put up with a few hours of rain a day (sometimes no rain at all), your trip will not be ruined! Sometimes in a warmer climate, those rainy hours are more than welcome!
DON’T forget to look into loyalty programs with airlines and hotels
Those points can add up to some great perks! Don’t miss out on them.
DON’T be afraid to book a ticket for one
