Summer Vacation Planning

Beautiful Highway

For many, school is either out or will be out soon. Families all over are gearing up for one of the biggest and most anticipated seasons of the year — summer. Planning for summer vacation is exciting, but can be overwhelming at times. Don’t let the stress get to you this year. There are several ways you can help this process go smoother. Here at SouthTowne Motors, we’ve compiled a short list of ways that you can plan your summer full of fun more easily.

First and foremost, create a budget for your trip. No matter what, stick to this. You don’t want to run yourself broke from overspending on hotel rooms or those fancy souvenirs. Keep it modest and simple if needs be. Choose where you will go based on what you can afford. Keep the age of all going in mind in case you have children or young relatives going with you. You can usually find great deals online or through a travel agent. There are several websites that have specials on rental cars, hotel room and even airfare.

If flying, when choosing an airline, decide on one that has experience in dealing with families or large groups. Sadly, not all airlines are created equal and, therefore, some may treat you better than others. If you have the choice, go with something that will keep the kids entertained during the flight. This is also a good time to figure out just how many seats you might need. Figure out how many people are going and if you will need someone who can watch the children should you need to go out.

There are infinite choices when deciding where to stay. There are, naturally, hotel rooms that have adjoining rooms for a large party. You can also rent apartments or condos if you’re not visiting relatives who you can stay with. Another great option, which is kind of off the beaten path, is renting an RV or motorhome. That way you have both your hotel and vehicle in one. It is also a good idea to pre-plan your activities and events with your children before you head out. Let them help in the decisions and do their own research if possible.
