Traveling anywhere in the world in luxury is often safer than traveling on the cheap. We cannot deny the fact that having a luxury trip with all the bells and whistles is the best way to travel. A luxurious trip ensures you dine well - and have more options too, which is why it’s worth saving a good amount before jetting off.
Here are the 6 Reasons Why You Should Save Up for a Luxury Trip:
1. You travel in absolute comfort
Travelling encompasses everything from transportation to accommodation and activities. Now, if you haven’t saved sufficiently, chances are your options of these will be limited and you’ll likely have to settle for experiences that are less comfortable, less fun and often more hassle. Instead of taking an Uber, you may need to settle for a cramped up, long train journey; or stay in a hostel full of rowdy students instead of a tranquil, gorgeous hotel. To ensure your budget doesn’t determine your experience, it’s well worth saving up, even if it means waiting a little longer to travel. We’re not saying you should aim for business class (unless you want to of course), but make sure you have enough financial room to have a really enjoyable, comfortable time.
2. It’s less stressful for you and your partner
Planning a trip can be very stressful especially when your budget is tight and you’re looking for the best deals and ultra-cheap alternatives (which are often offered as flash sales, meaning you have to glue yourself to budget travel websites and strike in the nick of time). Saving enough to be able to book without worrying about sales and best prices is a lot less stressful and also provides you with a lot more freedom once you arrive at the destination. You’ll be free from group activities, packaged itineraries, schedules and all the fuss you’d rather want to leave behind. A trip is about being spontaneous, doing what makes you happy in your own time and at your own convenience.
3. A luxurious place is more exclusive
A holiday is for relaxing, exploring, having fun, not fighting your way through crowds or standing in line for a sun lounger at the hotel pool. Saving for a more luxurious or even just a more quiet, exclusive place to stay is definitely the way to go - and you’ll thank your lucky stars that you prioritized it. A luxurious place affords you peace and tranquility, better amenities, activities and the feeling that you’re being taken care of, and what more could you want out of a holiday? We’d recommend aiming for destinations like Thanda Island in Tanzania, a luxury private island!
4. You’ll feast like a queen
A luxury trip can afford you to feast like the king or queen that you are. You want to be pampered and treated special, especially when it comes to food - good food honestly makes a trip, but it’s also a fun activity to do with your travel partner. But it is also not just about taste, it’s about preparation, presentation, and experience. Food tells you a lot about a place and if done right, you will leave feeling a lot closer to the destination, the people and certainly more knowledgeable about the culture on a grander scale. A luxurious trip ensures you dine well - and have more options too, which is why it’s worth saving a good amount before jetting off.
5. It’s often safer than budget trips
Traveling anywhere in the world in luxury is often safer than traveling on the cheap. Sometimes budget options are cheaper because the safety precautions are not maintained or up to standard. It’s not always the case, but in some parts of the world - especially tourist destinations in third world countries, safety is often not prioritized as it should be. For example, it would be safer to travel by hotel transfer or to hire a car of your own than taking a local taxi which may pose safety risks as well as the risk of being scammed because you’re a tourist. Not only does it take the stress off you, especially as a visitor who’s likely unsure of where to go, what’s seen as cheap or expensive, and has limited knowledge on how their systems work, but it ensures you are safe and in good hands.
6. It’s the best way to travel!
Of course, we cannot deny the fact that having a luxury trip with all the bells and whistles is the best way to travel. It gives us the opportunity to sit back, enjoy the ride, the scenery and just simply enjoy everything that goes with and into having a luxury holiday. You will return to ‘everyday’ life knowing that you have had the best experiences possible, made the most incredible memories with your partner or friend, and are rejuvenated and inspired, ready to take on life again.
