By Ryan Stiles | Business Insider It’s been a busy couple of weeks for vacationers around the country.
From the wild West of Alaska to the warm and friendly climate of New England, it’s been hot and humid.
And there are still a lot of challenges to face.
But if you want to go to one of the best destinations in the United States, there are plenty of ways to do it, and you don’t have to spend millions of dollars.
Here are the 10 most important tips to consider when you decide to make your dream vacation to one the most exclusive places in the world.1.
Make it affordableThe average cost of a vacation in the U.S. is $2,600, but that includes flights and accommodations.
If you have the money to spare, you can also buy a private jet, a private ski vacation, a helicopter, and more.
For that cost, you could potentially save thousands of dollars over your average budget.2.
Look at other ways to travelThe first tip to consider is that you don.t have to shell out a ton of money to get to the destination.
There are so many other ways you can travel, even if you have to pay a bit more.
If your budget allows for a private flight, you may want to consider taking a trip to the Caribbean or Asia, for example.
And while you might not be able to go on a Caribbean cruise or a private trip to Asia, you still might be able get to a nearby island with a cruise ship.3.
Plan aheadFor most people, their vacation will be an overnight or two away, which can be expensive.
If that’s the case, consider purchasing your vacation early, so you can have the experience in your hotel room.
A little extra money for food and transportation can also help.4.
Make the vacation funIf you’re a bit shy about the cost, there’s no harm in having fun.
You can do activities like yoga, art classes, and dance lessons, or try some other things like hiking, swimming, or going on a tour.
If these things are too expensive, consider a little budget travel to a beach, an island, or a city.5.
Plan your own travelTo save money, it may be a good idea to have your own car, boat, and/or car rental company.
You could rent a car from a rental company, but you’ll also have to be responsible for paying your own gas, insurance, maintenance, and repairs.6.
Make your trip as flexible as possibleIt’s not unusual to have some time off, but not enough to get back to work.
So make sure your vacation is flexible, so that you can spend time with your family, enjoy a day of nature, or go for a hike.
You may also want to have a couple of days off.
If you plan to stay at a resort or other property, consider having a group of people stay there.
If they work in a different state, they can rent a home to share the cost.
You’ll also want an extra day off to go hiking or biking, but this time you can stay at the same place, too.7.
Set aside a day to plan a tripEven if you’re not planning on taking your trip to any of the above destinations, you should set aside a few days to plan out the whole experience.
If all of the following steps sound reasonable, you have an amazing opportunity to go for this one-of-a-kind vacation, especially if you plan ahead.1) Rent a car, plane, or helicopter2) Rent out a cabin3) Go on a cruise or kayak tour4) Do a guided tour5) Spend some time in the countryIf you have a car or boat, rent one.
You won’t need much space in your home, so there are a lot less distractions to worry about.
If it’s not possible to rent a vehicle, consider renting a kayak, or maybe even a canoe.
If the only place you have room in your vacation cabin is for the day to be in, you might consider renting out a room in the resort, where you can use it as a guest room or stay on the beach or pool.
You don’t need to share a bedroom, as long as you have shared living spaces, such as a room that is shared by four or five people.6) Plan your vacation by stateYou don’t really need to spend $5,000 to make it happen.
But you might want to look at the options in your state.
If the cost of renting a car is high, consider getting a vehicle like an RV or a pickup truck.
If there’s a rental car for sale near your destination, you’ll save money and you won’t have any problems.
If not, you don,t need to buy a vehicle at all.7) Buy a vacation kitYou may be able, with a little planning, to buy yourself a nice vacation
