The Thrill of Anticipation: planning your next dream getaway

on 28 February 2023

Guest post from Caroline Park, C The World independent travel agents

As the nights are starting to draw out, it is definitely time to dust off your suitcase, check your passport and start planning something fabulous for you and family or friends to enjoy. Planning your dream holiday and waiting for that departure date does wonders for our overall our wellbeing, so we have teamed up with independent travel experts C The World to help guide you through planning your next dream getaway –

Travel is bouncing back
Everyone is making up for lost time and getting a trip or two in the diary. We are seeing high demand for peak summer dates and also May & September are proving popular.

Hot destinations this year

  • Costa Rica & Borneo seem to be the wildlife destinations of choice.
  • South Korea is also a hot topic – a number of World Heritage sights combined with modern and traditional contrasting cities and some great beaches – they also have the beautiful spring cherry blossom displays for which Japan is so well known.
  • Canada is high on the list, as are Australia & New Zealand
  • Closer to home Greece and Scandinavia seem to be leading the way.

Rail travel 
This has become increasingly popular, especially in Europe and as always cruises are in high demand both river and ocean.

If you are planning to make some special memories with your loved ones definitely get planning to secure your first choice of destination and accommodation – as we always say, if it is planned well it is so much more rewarding when you get there.

A little tip on passports – if going to Europe, check your passport issue date. It can be no older than 10 years from date of issue even if the expiry date is still valid.

Most countries have relaxed Covid entry requirements enormously from last year but there is still the occasional form to complete and some still require proof of Covid vaccination. Your travel agent will of course advise on this, but for a quick check it is easy to refer to and select the country you are travelling to – also don’t forget to check countries that you may transit as well. (travel through countries/layovers to reach your final destination)

We are always dreaming of that stunning sunset or a local musician entertaining in a square while you enjoy a glass of something cold. Your hard work with all the planning has paid off, so make the most of  it and put the phone camera down to take it all in!
