When planning a trip, budget is often
taken into consideration. Travelers save a chunk of money booking with
SmarTravel so little splurges here and there with the money saved in booking
can often make the trip even more special and enjoyable. Here are five areas of
indulgence that SmarTravel approves as “OK” splurges to make your trip over the
- Fine dining: Whether you’re
traveling 5-star or not, making reservations or stopping by an exclusive
restaurant in the city is a once in a lifetime experience that will be
totally worth the extra splurge. You’ll leave feeling full and content
knowing you got a taste (literally and figuratively) of the best local
- Spa treatments: Treating your body
and mind to a massage or facial can be beneficial and melt away any
stress. Booking this type of indulgence on the first or second day of
arrival will help you relax even further which will help pave the wave for
a smooth rest of your getaway.
- An out of this world excursion: Is swimming with
dolphins on your bucket list? What about parasailing? These types of
excursions – sometimes pricey - can turn into events that make you say, “I
will never forget this moment.” It is worth it to spend the extra dollars
and do something you’d never thought you’d do while on vacation.
- Sightseeing: Whether it’s a
famous art museum, aquarium or castle, paying the extra few bucks for a
ticket is worth it. You learn history about the location and see more of
an “artsy” side of things that you not see otherwise. These types of
activities really allow you to become immersed with the local culture, and
some locations may even offer family discounts.
- Must-do landmarks: Does your vacation
destination have the coolest amusement park in its surrounding area? Then,
definitely buy a ticket and enjoy the ride. That way, you can go home and
share the best advice with friends and family for their next trip, or just
share your favorite photos.
A vacation is a true luxury. Whether
you’re taking an expensive trip to an exotic location or traveling with your
family to a lake or beach, it is possible to splurge a little on things here
and there to make the most remarkable vacation memories yet. Vacation is a time
to treat yourself to things you may not normally do, so sit back, indulge and
enjoy. SmarTravel enjoys helping save you money from the beginning so that the
extra cash can be used to indulge further.
