Planning your next getaway is an exciting time as the world is your oyster! You get to decide which part of this amazing world you go to, how long for and who with. However, there are a few factors you need to consider when deciding where to go overseas, as outlined below.

Who Goes There

Probably the biggest decision to make is who you want to go with. Do you want a relaxing getaway with your partner, a fun vacation with friends, or an activity vacation with family?

It is imperative that you carefully think about this aspect as although you may find your best friend the funniest person in the world, could you spend 24 hours a day, 7 days a week together?

What happens if you’re delayed at an airport, miles from anywhere, and you’re stuck together, with only the airport walls for company? Would they still be the best person to be on vacation with?

Where in the World

Another huge decision is where exactly it is you want to go. You need to think about whether you want a city break, a mountain escape, in the middle of nowhere or a trendy tourist spot.

You also need to decide whether you want sunshine and heat, which can be stifling in some countries or risking unpredictable weather such as monsoons.

Fly or Drive

Working out how you get to your chosen destination is part of the fun as you can take a plane anywhere in the world, but do you want to go with luxury with one of the bigger companies, or use a low-cost airline, which will be cheaper but not as so comfortable.

If you decide to dive, you need to think where you can get to easily, without spending your whole vacation in a car.

Rent it out

If you decide to fly, renting a car is something you should automatically consider when thinking about where you are going to take your next vacation as it gives you the freedom to go where you want, when you want.

It is paramount that you use a company with a great reputation and with a strong social media presence.

There are many companies offering car rental across the world, but if you choose a company that is unknown or new to the market, then it will be difficult to ascertain whether they are going to deliver on their promise of providing a car.

Using an international car rental company that has been in the market for a long time and one that also has many locations across the top travel markets means that they are going to be able to offer you a great service, a big choice of rental cars, and most importantly, great value for money!

Once you’ve worked out the basics of what needs to be done and booked your vacation, then you can get onto to the fun bit of counting down the days until you go on your break.  

Plan every small detail in advance, such as how you get from the airport to your accommodation and who’s the best person to go away with, and you can enjoy a stress-free trip.
