A Step by Step guide to create your own travel itinerary
Some peoples are like travelling with no plan with one way ticket, personally my kind of people, but mostly population are equipped with one thing to another so they plan a week or 10days trips for that they don’t want to waste any moment during that time. So you are being a organised.
You probably prefer to have a plan. You feel more comfortable knowing where you will be resting your head every night, at what time the train or plane leaves for your next destination, and what the main things to see and do are in each place.
Knowing all of these things means you need to create a travel itinerary for your trip. A daily routine that ensures your trip runs smoothly. By investing the time now to put together an itinerary, you save time for more fun things whilst you are away from home.
Now, Making itinerary people thinks it’s a complex process and need a professional to do it, but i think anyone can do this. Key to a well laid itinerary is to start early planning and be flexible.
Here are some ways you can make your own personalised itinerary.
1.Decide on your destination and the length of your trip.
In order to determine the cost of the trip, first decide the length of your trip, Are you going for a week? A couple of weeks? A month? A year? Figure out your total number of days and go from there.
Up to some extent this will also help you in determining number of leaves you want to apply at your work.
2.Create a budget.
Now after deciding the number of days and location you need to create a budget, how much money you will need to go and comeback to your place safely. After paying all your monthly debts create a budget because getting broke in middle of vaccation want be a good thing. Create a budget this will also help in destination you choose, what flights and hotels you book, and how many places you can visit. You do not want to plan a fabulous itinerary and then discover you cannot afford it.You should also check what currency is typically used in the country of your choice (some countries have multiple currencies) and what the current exchange rate is. A great way to save money is to choose a destination where the exchange rate puts you in an advantageous position.
3.Research your destination to find out what activities and attractions you want to visit.
Now you are getting close to creating your itinerary, start by researching your destination and find the best place you want to visit for ex i am a kind of person who like to explore unexplored places i’ll reasearch about hidden places in XYZ place or unxplored XYD there are many nomads who post things on different social media platform you can watch their experience on youtube,facebook,instagram etc.
4.Make your Reservations
After deciding the places you want to visit or what activities you want to do in particular start making reservations nearby that place in advance because you don’t want last minutes problems so it’s better to make the reservations in advance specially in season time. Book your flights / mode of transportation 2-3 months prior you will get best prices and you can use that money in exploring.
Next, you should book your hotels. As is the case with pretty much everything you book for your trip, the earlier you make arrangements, the better — especially during high season.
5.Create a detailed itinerary by filling in the specific details of each day, including the times that you will be doing each activity and the transportation that you will use to get there.
6.Print out your itinerary or save it to your phone or computer so that you have it with you while you travel.
I personally prefer to printout my itinerary and my packing list so that even my phone battery die i don’t want to loose any moment in my trip.
It can be helpful to use a travel planning website or app to create and organize your itinerary. These tools can also help you find deals on flights, hotels, and activities, and can provide other useful information about your destination.
