Planning a holiday is hard. It does not matter if you know where you want to go, or when you want to go, it is always hard to get to the travel agents and book what you want. Something always goes wrong and you always have to move things around.
Therefore, you can imagine how hard it is to plan a surprise holiday, where everything is up to you and you have to co-ordinate everything because there is no one there to help you.
It is kind of rare for people to book a surprise holiday because if they want to book a break for someone, then they usually take the person with them and find out where they want to go. It is not hard and the person booking the trip is just there to pay for what the other person wants. They do not have to guess anything at all.
If you are in the position where you want to book a surprise holiday, then you have come to the right place. The aim of this article is to show people that booking their surprise break does not have to be a headache.
You might not know where the recipient would want to go. If this is the case, why are you planning a surprise trip? You should have some idea because you would not really know why they would like a surprise trip in the first place.
It is good to have some idea where they want to go. If you are close to the other person, then you will have been there when they will have mentioned somewhere that they have always wanted to go. If you still do not know, you should ask their friends or pay attention when they comment on their favorite movies, because people always want to go where their favorite movie was filmed.
Once you know the destination, it is time to start getting quotes for prices of the trip. If you go to the travel agents on the high street, you might pay a bit more than if you booked on a website.
Therefore, it might be worth getting quotes off the travel agent and then going home and looking on their website at the prices. Sometimes travel agents will give you an extra discount for booking online because they want to make more money off their site. If there is a massive discount, then go ahead and book it. But, if you are still not sure, then look on other websites and see if they can offer you anything for cheaper.
You should go with the cheapest quote as long as you do not book a cheap holiday and then you are staying in a dump and you have preferred to pay more for a better hotel. To make sure this does not happen, you should pick a hotel that you like and then get quotes based on that hotel.
If you know that the person will want to do tours, then it is better if you book them before you go and have everything planned in advance. That way, everything will be a surprise for the other person and they will feel like you have made a massive effort to make it the best holiday for them.
Sometimes, it is more memorable if you choose tours and excursions that are a bit unique. For example, if you are going to Costa Rica, you could probably see the sights on a bus tour. However, you will be crammed in a bus and will not see the sights, the way they were meant to be seen. Therefore, you could book a zip line tour and be out in the open when you see everything and it will be something that you will both remember for the rest of your life.
