How to Plan Your Dream Vacation in Turks and Caicos

Going on the vacation of your dreams is an unforgettable experience. Planning the vacation of your dreams, on the other hand, can be daunting. Fortunately, going on a vacation is good for you, offering a boost in confidence, decreased stress levels and overall happiness.

To help you plan your trip, here are five tips you can use when planning you dream vacation.

Tip #1: Visualize Where You’d Like to Go

Before planning your ideal vacation, it’s a good idea to visualize where you’d like to go. Is dream vacation somewhere hot and sunny, or cold and snowy?

Visualizing your ideal vacation can help you answer these questions.

For example, if you’d like to visit a beach locale, search online for images of beautiful beaches, including the world-renowned Grace Bay beach in Providenciales.

Once you select a destination, you can begin the planning process.

Tip #2: Travel When It’s Ideal for You and Your Destination

Popular travel destinations typically have various peak tourism periods throughout the year. Airfares and hotel rates then to be much higher during peak periods than any other time of year, and these travel hotspots also tend to be very crowded during these times.

Weather is another factor when choosing your destination, as popular activities and excursions are only available during certain times of the year.

Turks and Caicos enjoys excellent weather throughout the year, although there can be rain in the summer months. The most popular time to travel to Turks and Caicos is from November until the end of March.

July through September can be quieter, and there are often good travel deals then, too.

Tip #3: Use Travel Planning Apps

Smartphone apps are used to help plan out every aspect of our day, so why not use apps to help you plan your trip!

Travel apps such as Hopper, KAYAK Flights and Skyscanner can help you find cheap flights. The moment when airfares to your dream beach locale drop, an alert will be sent to you. Once you’ve booked your vacation, use the TripIt app to streamline every aspect of your trip. The app allows you to access trip itineraries, confirmations, and various bookings all in one app.

Tip #4: Look Where You’re Going

As you plan for your trip, it’s natural to be curious about where you are travelling to. Visit sites such as Instagram and Pinterest to find photos of your travel destination.

You may end up discovering activities, excursions, and locations you wish to visit during your stay. For example, when searching for Grace Bay beach photos, you may discover a restaurant or an area of the island you would like to visit.

Tip #5: Ask the Locals

Travel-booking websites such as Expedia, Travelocity and Orbitz offer ease and convenience but may still lack the “insider” knowledge.

By connecting with a local, you’ll discover places and activities not found on the usual travel websites. Hotel blogs, such as the Sands Resort blog, provide a wealth of information related to your future stay. The Sands’ Tour Excursion Desk can connect you to range of excursions that will make you dream vacation even better.

All you have to do is ask!
