Why Now is the Time to Plan Your Ultimate Vacation
People everywhere dream of taking the vacation of a lifetime, but few actually do it. Why is that? For some, it’s because of indecision about where they should go which leads them to not going anywhere. For others, it’s a monetary concern and feeling like they can’t go on a decent vacation for the amount of money they’re willing to spend causes them to shelve the idea of going on a vacation at all.
Fortunately for you, if you’re reading this and you’ve found yourself in a similar situation, we can help. Whether you’re trying to take a vacation on a budget or you’re indecisive about where you should go, today’s blog has a bit of advice that we think you will find incredibly helpful.
Now is the Time to Book a Vacation
When it comes to dealing with the first problem we mentioned, the solution is to just go with your gut and take a leap of faith that the place you’re considering is the right place for you. After all, it’s better to take a vacation than not go anywhere at all, right? In our experience, even a location that you didn’t absolutely love still ends up providing you with great memories.
The first step in planning your ultimate vacation is to make a list of places you’d like to go. Whether you’re dreaming of a beachfront oasis or a mountain getaway, start narrowing it down little by little until you find yourself with a manageable list.
The next step is to do your research. Learn as much as you can about the places you’re considering. Look up any events that they’ll be having in the near future and plan your trip dates around that information. Ask for advice from friends or family members who have been to the locations you’re considering.
At this point, you should have it narrowed down to a couple of different destinations. From here, the best thing you can do is to just pick one. If you can’t do that, flip a coin. The vacation that wins out is the place you’ll visit this year and the decision making process is over. There’s always next year for the trip that didn’t win this time!
What About Money?
Another common concern for those who want to go on vacation is how much money they have to spend. As we mentioned before, we make it easy to take a vacation on a budget, ensuring that you don’t spend an arm and a leg getting where you want to go! As a matter of fact, we can often save our customers between 40% and 70% compared to other websites like Travelocity, Orbitz, Expedia, and the like. Take a look at all of the vacation packages we offer and see what catches your eye, then feel free to give us a call to get a quote or ask any questions you might have.
One other thing to consider is that according to a recent study from Cornell University that was detailed on Bright Side, “traveling makes us far happier than any material wealth does.” The study notes that humans get the same type of satisfaction from making a purchase of something they want as they do when they’re traveling. Here’s the kicker though--your happiness that comes from making a purchase generally diminishes exponentially over time. There are exceptions to this rule, of course, but for the most part, we tend to enjoy less happiness over our belongings the longer we have them.
The opposite is true of taking a trip though! The article goes on to mention that “the memories of our traveling experience continue to supply us with happiness hormones for much longer” and that “every new memory becomes a real source of joy that stays with us for our whole lives.” Now we don’t know about you, but that sounds like a pretty good reason to us in favor of setting aside a bit of money for awhile until you can afford the vacation you want to go on. You could also make the case that going anywhere is better than going nowhere at all, so simply picking a place and making plans might be in your best interest.
Combine that mentality with the knowledge that you’ll save a boatload of cash by working with Vacation Strategy and we think that you’re setting yourself up to have the time of your life! We offer a number of different vacation destinations and we think that no matter what you’re looking for, you’ll be able to find a place to enjoy a bit of exploration and relaxation with no trouble at all.

Whether you opt to book a Disney vacation like the one at the Wyndham Bonnet Creek Resort (one of our most popular vacation packages by the way) or get a taste for city life at the Wyndham Midtown 45 in New York, we have something that’s right for you.

The answer to that one, of course, is that it’s up to you, but as we’ve seen the best thing you can do is to simply pick a place and go. Book your trip today.
