Meaningful Travel

There is a temptation to travel whenever you get some time off from your work schedule. However, have you ever gone on a trip and realized you were kind of just along for the ride? Sometimes, travel doesn’t end up being particularly meaningful, and that isn’t the best use of your time. We all have a limited amount of time to explore this world, and you want to make the most of it. USA Today recently wrote an article with tips on making your travel more meaningful.

  • Volunteer – Volunteering away from home can be an extremely rewarding experience. The piece talks about someone teaching school children in Tanzania.
  • Passion – Chances are your passion will lead you in the right direction. Do something that you have always wanted to do, or are extremely interested in.
  • Good – In many foreign places, you can do some good by creating interesting pieces that can be donated. Bring back something that isn’t available in our country.

With a little planning, your next trip can be a truly meaningful one. However, regardless of the type of trip you’d like to take, Trending Travel can help you. Whether it is providing travel vouchers, discounted travel rates, general travel expertise, or more, they are here to help. Don’t let your next trip be another “been there, done that” type of experience. Contact Trending Travel, today, and get the planning process started.

Travel With Friends – And Stay Friends

Traveling with friends can be a very tricky concept. People who you thought you knew very well turn out to be completely different when you are spending every minute together. Certain habits get old very quickly, and sometimes, friendships can be lost. Are you about to head out on a trip with some of your closest friends for the first time? Mashable shared these tips on how to travel with friends, and still have friends after the trip.

  • Money – Nothing can tear a friendship apart quicker than monetary issues. Make sure everybody knows how the payments will be split, especially the bigger stuff like airline tickets.
  • Itinerary – Have you ever heard of the saying too many cooks spoil the broth? Everyone is going to have their own ideas, and that can lead to a lot of wasted time. Make sure you have a schedule planned ahead of time.
  • Leader – It can actually pay to nominate a group leader. This person can decide on times, and help ensure the trip has some structure.

Are you and your friends ready to take off on the trip of a lifetime? Without the proper planning, you may experience a mediocre trip, and risk losing some long term friends. Trending Travel would love to help you with the planning process, and they are ready to start right away. They can assist you with travel vouchers, discounted travel rates, general travel expertise and more. Contact Trending Travel, today, and get the process underway.

Book Holiday Travel Now!

A few weeks back, we talked about how important it is to start thinking about your holiday travel. While not everyone has the luxury of knowing exactly what their holiday season will hold, many people know where they are going, and how long they can be there. But, if you wait until a few weeks before, your wallet will not be happy. With Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s on the way, among others, it is time to plan your trip. A recent article discussed when exactly you should be preparing to buy your airline tickets.

  • Thanksgiving – Don’t look now, but Thanksgiving is already a month and a half away. Believe it or not, tomorrow (October 6th) is the prime day to buy Thanksgiving airfare.
  • Christmas – Though Christmas is farther off, you should be ready to buy tickets this week, as well. In fact, this Friday (October 9th) is reported to be the deadline for getting a decent deal on your tickets.
  • New Year’s – Again, even though it is a ways off, you’ll want to do things this week. Saturday (October 10th) is said to be the prime day for New Year’s airline bookings.

Some people aren’t ready to start thinking about the holidays, but booking your flights now can save you big money. Think about all of the extra presents you will be able to buy with the savings!
