Plan as much as you can


The first thing you need to do when you are travelling is to plan ahead. You want to get a rough itinerary together of where you will visit, where you want to stay and what you are going to do when you are there. Think about how you will spend your time, whether you want to soak up the culture in an art gallery, watch live sports such as horse racing (you could look up previous grand national winners if you want some inspiration), go sightseeing or do a bit of relaxation. While it’s good to leave some of it to see what you feel like on the day, having a bit of structure can really help it be stress-free.


Hire a car


If you want freedom and flexibility when you are travelling, a car is a fantastic way for you to have this. It’s super easy to rent a car in most countries and you can either return it to the same place you hired it initially, or return it somewhere else. The only thing to consider with this is that it can be a bit more expensive to return it in a different location, but it can be worth it. You won’t have to wait for public transport or have to get taxis and Uber cars everywhere, making it easier to get where you want exactly when you want to get there. 


Pack as light as you can 


When you are going travelling, you are often going for a longer period of time and as such, it can be tempting to pack a lot to reflect this. While this is natural, you also need to remember you will be the one carrying it all around everywhere and not only will it be heavy, but also a real pain trying to find everything and to pack and unpack all the time. Just think about what you will need that is necessary. 


These are just a few top tips for going travelling that should enable you to have a stress-free experience. Going travelling is one of the most rewarding things you will do and you will grow as a person, learning new skills, experiencing new cultures and discovering far flung locations around the world.
