Planning the perfect summer holiday

Planning holiday with APL

The summer holidays are well and truly upon us, and that can only mean one thing—it’s time for that much-anticipated holiday! You could well have started planning things months in advance to ensure everything comes together, but if you’re willing to take the risk you might be thinking of indulging in a last-minute break. Doing so can be a great way to find the holiday you want at fantastic value for money, but either way it’s going to take a bit of prep work. So just how can you plan the perfect summer holiday? Here are just a few pointers to get you started:

  • Pick a budget and stick to it. It’s all-too easy to watch budgets spiral out of control, but if you want to keep an eye on the purse strings then being strict with yourself is vital. You need to make sure you’re getting a fantastic holiday at a price you can afford and a lot of that comes down to research—make sure to scour the internet to track down the best deals, and you’ll want to take into account things like conversion rates and food prices too. And, of course, you’ll need a strict daily budget whilst you’re over there as well…
  • Get your packing list sorted. Putting together a to-pack list may not sound like a barrel of laughs but it can actually be incredibly enjoyable, and if you spend time going through it to make sure you haven’t missed anything vital you can look forward to having everything you need. Don’t just think about the obvious either—yes, you’ll need clothes and toiletries, but what about mobile phone chargers, electronic equipment and adapters? It’s all about being prepared!
  • Shop around to find holiday money at the best rates. There’s more to finding holiday money than going to the first available travel agent—if you want to find the best conversion rates and have more cash in your pocket then doing a bit of research is vital. Luckily this can easily be achieved online, and you could even arrange things there and then to save time and hassle.
  • Book your London taxi service. What’s that? You haven’t booked your taxi yet? Then it’s time to get on it! Whether you want to get from Oxford to Heathrow, Dover to Gatwick or anywhere else you need to get booking, and don’t think it’s an unnecessary extravagance either. Being taken to and from your airport of choice can add something extra to your holiday, making it as stress- free and as enjoyable as possible, and if you book in advance you’ve got nothing else to worry about but getting packed.

If you want to plan the perfect summer holiday then these are just a few things you need to bear in mind, and whilst we can’t help with every point we can help with the final one—our dedicated taxi service will ensure you can get to and from your London airport with ease, so make sure to get in touch and you’ll be one step closer to having a holiday that you’ll never forget.
