Planning a trip to Andaman can be a daunting task. Everyone you know has got a guy who’s got a guy who will do it for far cheaper rate than other. Even before you have made your mind you start getting calls from random travel agencies offering you the best experience there is in the face of the world. The following words you will hear next few days are cheap, best agency, number one, best experience and other phony words. According to study 35% of tours are cancelled because they didn’t speak to right person. End of the day you find yourself asking where do I begin? What is the first step? What is the second step? What is the third step ? Travel planning can be overwhelming and time-consuming, especially if you don’t know how to plan a trip this is a complete guide for you.
Tip 1: Decide When Would You Like To Travel
Defining where you want to go sets a goal to work toward. A lot of people talk vaguely about travel. They never say where they are going, just that they are going. Since flights can represent the biggest part of your trip expenses, finding that hidden cheap deal can be just as important as finding the right destination, the right tour company, the right backpack, or the right place to stay. After all, if a flight is too expensive, you aren’t going anywhere.
Myth 1: There are many myths online about finding cheap flights. They will lead you astray. The first thing to know about finding a cheap flight is there is no magic bullet or one secret ninja trick. So let me first say: it is NOT cheaper to buy airfare on a Tuesday, there is NO evidence that searching incognito leads to cheaper deals, and there is NO exact date or specific time period in which to book your airfare.
Myth 2: Be flexible with your travel dates and times: Airline ticket prices vary depending on the day of the week, time of year, and upcoming holidays, such as Christmas or New Year’s Eve. If you are going to fly when everyone is flying, then you’re going to pay higher fares. Try to be flexible with your dates. If you are dead-set on visiting Paris, go to Paris in the spring or fall when fewer people visit and airfares are cheaper. Moreover, it’s always cheaper to fly during the middle of the week than on a weekend, because most people travel on the weekends and airlines hike their prices then. Prices are also cheaper if you fly after a major holiday. Early-morning or late-night flights are cheaper because fewer people want to travel then (who wants to wake up early?!). The difference of one day can mean hundreds of dollars in savings.
The most convenient way to travel to Andaman is through flights.
The Flight fare tends to rise as day of arrival approaches. So for best deal book your tickets in two months advance. There are still many ways to avoid being the person on the flight who paid the most. Our favorite site to find cheaper flight tickets are
Tip 2: Decide the Length of Your Trip
How much does it cost to travel? I have no idea without knowing for how long you’re going away. You can’t figure out how much you need to save if you haven’t decided on how long you’ll be in your destination. After you say “I’m going to Andaman,” add “for 10 days.”
Tip 3: Who are you traveling with?
Will you be traveling solo, as a couple, or taking family vacations? Some travel agents sell you family spots in honeymoon package in the name of cost effectiveness. If you are travelling with family sit down with other members of your traveling group and discuss your ideas and interests. Memorable trips are those where each member gets to experience something they love.
Don’t leave it to one person to make all the decisions. Or, maybe you could take turns in choosing a place of interest.
If you are in a honeymoon trip, we personally suggest be picky with the places you want to visit. Last thing you want to do is rushing to all destination in scorching sun instead of spending quality time with your love. Always remember you are on honey moon not on a field trip.
Step 4: Research Your Costs
In the name of cheapest package the so called best travel agents make your stay in some shady hotel with self-made rating. Broken tiles, bad furniture, A/C air smell like it’s never been cleaned since installation is not the bargain you asked for. So when you know where you’re going and how long you’ll be there, but to really nail down how much money you need, your next task is to research the costs in your destination at the style of travel you want.
We as official travel partners of top Hotels in Andaman & Nicobar provide you the best hotels in the city and at an unbelievable price. Even if something goes wrong our staff is always present in the travel desk near to the Hotel Reservation to help you in need.
Tip 4: When to Go?
Weather and crowds play an important role when you plan your trip. For your chosen destination, do you know when the high season and low season is?
If you are fortunate enough to be flexible in when you can take your vacation time, good for you! Avoiding peak travel periods is one of our best travel tips for how to plan a vacation.
Tip 5: Booking Accommodation for your trip
Where you sleep is your other major fixed travel expense, so choosing the best accommodation for your needs at the best price will free up more money for activities. For us, traveling with kids is not about finding the cheapest accommodation, but getting the BEST VALUE for our money! We don’t like to rough it as much as we used to pre-kids. Depending on the length of our trip and the destination, we chop and change between accommodation styles. Besides listing all the major hotel brands, you can find a variety of low-cost independently owned hotels that can be difficult to find elsewhere.
If you have a set schedule, feel free to book accommodation for the duration of your trip, but if you are going to be traveling long-term, book just the first few days. Once you know the dates you’ll be in your destination, there is no real reason not to find a place to stay. My view is that waiting will just lead to you losing your top picks.
Tip 6: Getting around
Another thing to consider when planning a trip is to find out the transportation options in your chosen destination. The quickest way to compare rental companies is to use an aggregator site that searches all the major car brands at once and checks which supplier offers the best prices for your chosen dates and location. During your travel planning research the transport options for your destination. This will save you time and stress once there.
Tip 7: Travelling Solo
Traveling solo is one of the most rewarding and liberating things you can do. It’s the best way to build your confidence and empower yourself to carve a path that you enjoy walking for the rest of your life.
Tip 8: Travel Packing Tips For Andaman
If there is one thing I dislike traveling, it’s wearing uncomfortable clothes. I always try to pack my most comfortable clothes for long travel days and long flights.
Take a backpack as a carry on with a small tote. This is important if you are flying with an airline that can be strict about weight limits. My carry-on always is overweight since it’s filled with my camera equipment and electronics, though if I get asked to weigh it (which is rare) I just say it’s camera equipment and they let me through. Shoes are so heavy and take up so much space and weight in your luggage I’ve found it’s not worth it. If it’s winter, I’ll wear my boots on the plane, if it’s really rainy, I pack waterproof shoes. Wet feet can ruin a day. I went through a stage where I used to take a hairdryer with me until I realized that the majority of hotels have them already. This is another big takeaway; I’ve learned to leave one-time outfits at home because they usually aren’t worth the space.
- Know the weather of the destination you are visiting, which helps reduce over-packing.
- When flying take a change of clothes in your carry-on just in case your checked-in luggage doesn’t arrive with you.
- Know the activities you will be doing so you can pack appropriately.
- Know the types of accommodation you will be staying at. If you are staying in hotels you won’t need to take things like towels, hair dryers or linen.
- Charge your electronics and load up all your tablets and portable devices with things to read, play, watch.
Tip 9: Tell Your Card Companies You’re Traveling
No matter how long you’ll be gone, it’s a good idea to let your credit card companies know you will be overseas; that way any transactions that you make aren’t flagged as fraudulent and your card is less likely to be blocked. There’s nothing worse than having to sit on the phone with your credit card company instead of enjoying your vacation.
Tip 10: Make Copies Of Important Documents
When you are planning a trip sometimes your important documents get misplaced. Companies can lose your booking reservation or there is a communication breakdown between the price you paid and the expected service. Print out hard copies and save your confirmation emails into a “folder” in your web-based email account. Consider leaving copies at home with a trusted person, and if traveling with a partner each carry copies.
Hard copies of certain documents are important as you won’t always have access to the internet to search email.
Step 11 – Places To Eat & Drink
You can learn a lot about a destination through its food and drink, and you can even plan a trip by eating your way through a destination. For some people that is their favorite thing about travel. Is that you?
Tip 12: Phone & Internet Access
These days almost everyone travels with at least a smartphone, plus other gadgets that require connection to the internet and a data plan.
As travel bloggers, we know more than most the frustration at not being able to be connected on the road. But you might just like to update your Facebook account or send emails so family and friends can follow your travels.
Step 13 : Accessing Your Money
We all want ease and convenience when traveling, especially when it comes to accessing our money. We also want to reduce our bank and transaction fees. Carry some cash in different denomination and change.
Tip 13: Enjoy Your Trip
That’s it. You are now a trip planner!
You know where to start planning a trip so you can enjoy the travel planning process, and then go away and have the time of your life!
Go on your trip and have fun! Head to the airport, board your plane (don’t forget your passport!), and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
The Dutch have a saying “He who is outside his door has the hardest part of his journey behind him.” Life on the road is a lot easier than you think. It’s the decision to take that step out the door that is the hardest part because it requires the most change. You’re leaving your old life for a new one. I know what it is like – I’ve been there many times but travel is a very rewarding experience and you shouldn’t let fear hold you back.
