Planning a trip can be exciting, but most of the time stressful. How can you eliminate stress while traveling? Being prepared and organizing the details beforehand can make your trip run much more smoothly. After you’ve taken the time off work and booked the flights, here’s what to do next.
1. Book your airport parking with FLL Park Safe
The first step to organizing any trip, whether it’s for business or pleasure, is to have all of your reservations in order. Where should you park you car if you’re flying out of the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport? There’s only one parking place you need to know! FLL Park Safe is affordable, secure, and runs 24/7. Book your long-term airport parking in advance as we have been known to sell out!
2. Create an itinerary
Now for the fun part! Get some paper or your laptop and create a list of everything you want to do or need to get done. Go online and start looking up fun attractions and top rated restaurants. Reach out to friends and family who have been there and get some recommendations. When creating an itinerary, map out all of the places in relation to your hotel. This will help you plan your transportation. Some places might be within walking distance while others may require a cab or public transit. Creating an itinerary will help you prepare for the next two steps (budgeting and packing).
Now that you’ve created an itinerary, it’s time to budget. If you’re working on a tight budget, you might want to do this before the itinerary as some things might be pricier than you think. Good thing our airport parking in Fort Lauderdale is so affordable! When creating a budget, I like to separate it into different categories. For example, assign a dollar amount to how much you want to spend on food, souvenirs and leisure. Always pad in a little extra spending money so you won’t be strapped for cash in case something comes up.
4. Pack Smart
Now that your trip is right around the corner, it’s time to pack! We’ve dedicated a few blogs in the past to helping you pack. If you’re going on a cruise here’s a list of things you won’t want to forget. If you’re traveling with kids, be sure to check out our packing tips here. Your itinerary will help guide your packing as you will know what activities you’ll be doing. For example, if you scheduled yourself to go on a hike, be sure to pack workout clothes and tennis shoes. Check the forecast and prepare your wardrobe for the weather.
