Modern lifestyle has us living such busy, stressful lives these days, always rushing from one place and one task to another. Sometimes we need to rest, relax and recharge our batteries and how better to do that than to embark on a luxury, tailor-made holiday? Luxury custom travel is a far step from Economy seats on a plane, bus shuttles to and from airports and noisy kids activities around the pool. You have the opportunity to indulge in completely custom travel, from your flight arrangments to accommodation, eating out, sightseeing experiences and more. Whether you’re going on a romantic getaway for two or the ultimate family trip, you’ll come back feeling like a new person, getting away from all the stress at work and home and really treating yourself.

If you’re planning a luxury holiday, you don’t want to spend ages researching and worrying about the details, so here’s our simple guide on how to organise your dream trip!

Create your Holiday Bucket List

Spend some time brainstorming with your partner on exotic locations you’d like to visit, activities you’d love to try and what sort of accommodation you want. Maybe you dream of snorkelling with dolphins and exotic fish, relaxing in a luxury hidden riad a few steps from the glorious souks of Marrakech, or you’ve always wanted to see the Northern Lights in all their spectacular glory. Once you know where you’d like to go, work out the best time to visit, considering the climate in your destination so that you get the perfect weather for your break. Arriving in India during monsoon season will be sure to put a downer on your holiday, no matter how luxurious your hotel is.

Consider using a luxury travel operator

For the best, stressfree experience from the planning stages to travelling and arriving at your luxury destination, we’d recommend using a luxury travel operator who’ll be able to create your dream travel experience. They’re experts at taking your wishes and weaving them into the most unique, custom holiday just for you and they’ll take care of all the time-consuming tasks like finding flights, connections, hotels and tour guides. You won’t have to lift a finger and you’ll be able to look forward to your holiday in anticipation of the delights to come.

Upgrade to Business or First Class to fly in style

Nothing says tailor-made travel like being able to stretch out in First Class, snacking on delicious tidbits and washing it down with a glass of champagne. Instead of being hassled and hurried in Economy Class, you’ll arrive at your destination feeling like you’ve been pampered, avoiding all the normal stress of travelling. You won’t regret your decision to invest in an upgrade – a great tip is to check with your flight operator the week before you fly – they often offer excellent value upgrade options.

Add a few luxury experiences

Maybe you fancy arriving at your hotel in style by hiring out a Maserati for your stay, or taking a luxury yacht trip around the islands? Are there any famous restaurants nearby that you could visit for an amazing meal to wrap up your holiday? Talk to your travel agent to see what’s for offer at your destination to create some amazing memories that will stay with you for years to come!
So there you have our simple guide to organising your dream original travel holiday. Follow these steps and you’ll have a memorable and truly relaxing break!
