Before lockdown, our collective travel habits tended to seesaw between blowout trips, beach breaks and multi-stop holidays at various destinations.
While some of us feel that pull to satisfy our sense of adventure and get on a plane again, these unprecedented times have changed what that may look like. So although our longing to get far, far away may never have been greater, it’s time to put simplicity back into travel.
Preparing for a post-lockdown break needn’t be stressful; put ease at the heart of your trip by booking hotels and packages that include Covid cover and holiday guarantees. Taking all possible precaution will help to guarantee that safe, relaxed trip you’ve been dreaming of.
Planning on booking your next holiday? Take a look at the ways you can make it as stress-free as possible.
Step one: Choose one location
Nothing spells simplicity like a single destination holiday. Whether you’re yearning for a tropical Caribbean retreat or dreaming of a closer-to-home beach break, embrace it without stopping off elsewhere. What could be better than a week of bliss in one location, with nothing on the agenda except what food to order next?
Whether you want to visit a crowd-free beach destination or explore stunning lakes and mountains, TUI has a wide range of package holidays that you can book with confidence. The holiday provider has every detail covered to help you feel safe, including extended restaurant hours and reduced dining capacity so you can truly relax as you indulge at your socially-distanced table. We can’t think of anything better than a week of fuss-free joy.
Step two: Simplify your itinerary
There’s something eternally appealing about doing it all, but embracing the art of simple travel also means streamlining your schedule. Choose one activity, such as paddle boarding or signing up to the spa, and your trip will feel much more at ease. If you don’t want to roam too far, you can also take advantage of what’s going on at your hotel; activities at TUI hotels may be reduced, but socially-distanced options will still be going ahead. Top tip: ask your hotel for insider knowledge on the best ticks-every-box activity.
Step three: Pack your own plastic-free toiletries
Say goodbye to plastic hotel miniatures and rushing around to find your favourite products by packing your own reusables; this is also your opportunity to be eco-friendly and streamline your holiday toiletries. Did you also know that shampoo bars last longer than liquid shampoos?
Step four: Streamline your suitcase
Overpacking is an easy mistake to make, but taking items you will really wear will help to simplify your trip, while also making unpacking upon arrival that whole lot easier. As a general rule, pack three tops for every bottoms you bring. Our top tip to accommodate a capsule holiday wardrobe? Pour a little fabric softener into a travel-sized spray bottle (with water) so you can spritz it over your clothes for an instant refresh.
Step five: Make sure you’re fully covered
When you book your trip, remember to take out your normal travel insurance as well as the new Covid cover (which is automatically applied to all TUI 2020 holidays). Thanks to this new Covid cover, you can amend your holiday for free if you contract Covid-19 prior to your travel dates – plus, it’ll cover you if you’re affected by the virus while you’re away, including medical costs, testing and even flying you home if needed.
When it comes to providing secure and trustworthy holidays, TUI’s trips give you the chance to embrace simple travel again. It’s the best way to book with added peace of mind.
