Have you ever heard the expression that getting there is half the fun? Travelling can become a part of your holiday adventure, and it can be a good experience or a bad one, depending on the way that you choose to travel. Whether you are travelling a short distance, like from Johannesburg to our Nelspruit accommodation, or if you are planning on hitting the long road for the adventure of a lifetime, if you are keen to learn more about how to travel in luxury in 2023, this is the blog for you.
You don’t have to spend a small fortune to travel in luxury (besides, you will already be spending more than enough on travel by having to put fuel in your vehicle).
Luxury travel can be quite affordable, and all you need to do is to use these few travel tips.
- Do your research
There are many different ways to travel, and sometimes it is both cheaper and more convenient to not drive yourself. You should also think about travel in terms of where you will be staying and what you will be doing once you get to your destination. Look for up market accommodation and shop the specials, and if you are travelling really long distances, think about booking through a travel agency.
- Travel off season or book ahead
If you are not travelling with children, it is easy to book your holiday during the off season. Accommodation as well as entry to various places and attractions can be a lot cheaper if you plan your stay during the off season or if you make a point of booking well in advance.
- Opt to self-cater
It can be extra expensive to dine out each day and if the accommodation you choose includes the meals, you can also expect to pay quite a bit more. If you choose accommodation that will allow you to self-cater, you can save money and still eat all the delicious things, if you buy the right kind of ingredients.
- Choose accommodation with added extras
By staying in accommodation which has a few added extras like a place to have a braai and a picnic, a private swimming pool, or something really luxurious like a spa, you can add some luxury to your holiday. Day spas are always a nice thing to have access to, because they will help you really get into holiday mode.
- Go for the offbeat destinations
There are plenty of luxury places that are a bit of an overcrowded tourist hub, and then there are those places which are luxurious but which are a little less well-known. By opting to stay in a lesser known location, you get to enjoy a peaceful stay with all the luxury perks.
