A PROFESSIONAL GUIDE FOR A MAGINIFICENT TRIP
- Should we drive
A good number of youth organize youth travel trips every now and then. However, many at times they are not so sure whether to drive or not. This should not be difficult though. You should examine whether you want to reach there faster? Is the distance coverable by driving? Is the trip supposed to be a walk in which case you won’t drive? If you are travelling to another country, driving won’t be advisable. You may have to fly. But if it is close enough you can still drive.
Time is of great essence if you are organizing any party travel. It comes in from the very beginning. You need time to plan, time to mobilize resources, time to travel and of course time to enjoy the adventure travel and come back. You need to make back within the time frame you had planned for. So, if you are going for a 12 hour trip you need to plan properly so that you don’t waste time on irrelevancies and eventually find that you haven’t covered everywhere you had wanted to visit.
- Go with friends and pals. Not a lot of stuff
Youth travel tours are supposed to be enjoyed with friends. It is thus necessary to carry along friends and not carrying a lot of stuff. Some people carry stuff and forget that it is not a stuff party but a people’s party. Though possible, it is not always a good idea to have fun alone. Fun is more enjoyable when you are with others. A lot of stuff may be helpful in making movement easier, but friends will make you laugh.
- Where to stay
Accommodation is another component that you must always consider when organizing tours for 18-35 year olds. At this stage of life it is understood that the youth do quite a lot. Many times they would want to stay in expensive hotels. However, in case you are operating on a minimal budget, it would be advisable to hire a hostel, although these come with stringent rules that may not auger well with the youth.
- Budget hints
It is always necessary to get a clear approximation of the likely budget for the tours for young people. Many at times the youth make mistakes with their budgets hence leading to underestimation. This causes problems during the tour because you find that you don’t have enough money to cater for all that you had planned for.
- Get a clear picture of your destination
Before heading anywhere, it would be wise to find out the actual location of the destination. You can check on maps, internet, ask friends, etc. this may help especially when you get lost while in the field.
