Many consider traveling as the best outlet for stress, and we could not agree more! When you go on a holiday, you forget the hustle and bustle of normal life and focus on the sights and experiences in front of you. You can leave all the stress and worries behind… well, almost all!
It’s normal to encounter a mishap here and there, but you shouldn’t let it ruin your whole trip! So, to help you solve or avoid them altogether, we have created a list of the most common travel troubles and basic tips on how to dodge them:
1. Expensive flights
There are airline companies known for offering low-cost fares all year round, but did you know that they hike up their prices the closer you get to the date of departure? Try to book your flights as early as you can while prices are still low and take advantage of seasonal promotions that airlines give. Before booking your flight, make sure to canvass properly and check out the prices of other companies first, too. Websites such as Skyscanner make it easy to contrast and compare because they display all the prices of all the airline companies in one go!
2. Missed flights
Now that you have scored a fantastic deal on your airplane ticket, the next step is to make it to your flight on time. Pack your things early and prepare a checklist so you can easily confirm that you have all the items you need. Oddly, some people have travelled all the way to the airport only to discover they have forgotten their passport! This cannot be emphasized enough – traffic can be very unpredictable, so leave for the airport as early as you can.
3. Motion sickness
Yes, it is real, and it usually wreaks havoc when you travel through different destinations, especially when going for a thrilling Puerto Princesa tour. To prevent motion sickness, sleep early and get enough rest before the trip. Adjust your time-pressured routine too by creating a more relaxed itinerary, and make sure to bring the necessary meds with you.
4. Low quality hotels
Photos on the internet can be deceiving sometimes, and more often than not, you’ll only find out how poor the quality of a hotel is once you’re checked in. By then, you most likely have shelled out money already.
No worries! When you choose our resort in Puerto Princesa, Astoria Palawan, rest assured that you’ll have a worthwhile stay with your family and friends!
