Step One: Start With A Budget
It’s all in the numbers. Working out a budget is first.

Your saving should start before booking your trip and should continue until you leave therefore, it will ensure that you have plenty of money available while you’re away. Consider additional expenses you may need such as car rental, vaccinations and insurance. Check your assets; credit and debit card rewards and redemptions can be an excellent value add along with hotel loyalty rewards and perks.
Step Two: Destination
So what do you want to get out of a trip? This discovery is what will make it most memorable. Explore why you want to go on this trip. Maybe you want to find a sense of adventure, a shared experience or a sense of purpose that only a mission trip could bring. Choose a location with plenty of activities you might enjoy. Research and use tourist forums and blogs to seek out other possible things to do and enrich your trip by taking the roads less traveled for incredible experiences.
Step Three: Get Booked
