When you are about to set forth on a dream luxury travel vacation, have a plan that deals with arrival essentials. Doing this will enable you to start your luxury vacation a little more stress-free. This is especially true for those planning to visit a new place.
Choose your time wisely
Try to avoid arriving at your destination in the middle of the night. For instance, your ticket may be telling you that you will be landing at 10 PM but after going through customs, getting your baggage and looking for transportations, you may arrive at your accommodation at about 1.00AM!
Keep in mind that arriving late means that you should have reservations at a nearby hotel. It is good to ensure that your hotel is aware of your arrival regardless of the predicted time so that your room is ready.
Make sure your transport from the airport to your hotel is well planned. The best recommendation is to book through a travel agency who can set up the transfers in advance. If you are booking on your own, find out how much a bus, taxi or train costs and how long it takes to arrive at your hotel.
Important items you should have
There are many items you should carry on the plane when going for a luxury travel vacation including:
It is important to carry about two days’ worth of local currency. Luxury world cruise directors advise their pre-cruise travelers to have four times their hotel cost for one night. It is good to carry a mix of local currency denominations.
A map is another important item to have in your possession. You should not count on the airport to give you a map because even if they give you, it may be in the local language. This can be a major problem especially if you cannot speak the language fluently. A bilingual map can be invaluable as it will enable locals to help you.
Keep a copy of your reservation
It is wise to print out a copy of your reservation and keep it on hand. Ensure that the name and address of your hotel in the local language are on the print out to enable the reservations desk read it easily.
All in all, your arrival will be exciting if you apply the tips in this article. Plan ahead, manage your time wisely and know what you need to carry with you and I can assure you that you will enjoy your travel vacation without any hassles.
