Ask Your Agents – October 2014

Dear Cheri and Tammy,

Do you have any suggestions on when the best dates are to travel in any given destination? What are some things to consider when planning a vacation?


Carolyn Planner

Dear Carolyn,

One of the most important things to consider when traveling to any destination is to determine if there are any “must sees” on your list. It’s important to know what’s happening” while you are visiting so you don’t miss a fun event or a must see list item.

For example, if you want to see the Pope in Rome, then you’ll want to be sure he’ll be available on the days that you are there. Or quite possibly, there is a museum you want to visit – knowing their hours in advance assist you in deciding your days to be there.

Here are a few suggestions you may want to consider thinking about before you select your travel dates: concert, show, skiing, bird migrations, popular figures, sporting event, gardens and flowers, special event or any other sight that may be special to you.

Today, with the help of the internet, there is a wealth of information to help discover fun things to do at every destination. Many events may only happen at a particular time of year, so that will determine your travel dates. By doing a little bit of research, you can help make your vacation so much more fun and avoid any unnecessary disappointments.
