While Coronavirus may put a temporary hold on your travel plans, it doesn’t mean that you’re going to be stuck at home forever. As countries and economies begin to open back up, traveling around the world will become a safe option again. To prepare for traveling, you’ll need to make sure you’re using the best practices to save a few bucks along the way.
That said, there’s no reason to skimp on luxury, right? You can still have the vacation of a lifetime without draining your savings account. So, let’s look at a few of the best ways to travel in style without breaking the bank!
Hire a Private Jet
It may sound extreme, but private jets are more affordable than ever before. Nonetheless, riding in a private jet is still an experience associated with the super-rich. It’s time for that stigma to change. Thanks to companies like Access Jet Group, private jet services are now affordable for people with a wide range of incomes. Moreover, flying in a private jet during a pandemic is much safer than packing into a standard airliner.
Rent a Luxury Car
You don’t need to own a fancy sports car in order to enjoy one. If you want to plan a weekend trip to the beach or any place of you’re choosing, consider renting a luxury car for a few days. You can get plenty of discounts on car rentals, which are generally much cheaper than a plane ticket anyway. So, the next time you plan a road trip with your friends or family, why not do it in a BMW, Mercedes-Benz, or Jaguar?
Share the Costs
Traveling alone can be a little depressing, so why not bring a friend (or friends) with you? Going with a group can help you pay for luxury travel, resorts, and experiences that you may not be able to afford on your own. Companies like Groupon make it even easier to find amazing travel experiences at discount rates. Depending on how many people participate in the cost-sharing, you could end up cutting the cost of your trip by 50% or more!
Take Advantage of Low Prices
At the moment, the travel and hospitality industries are really hurting. Some smaller airlines and hotel chains have had to close down altogether. As a result, many hotels, resorts, airlines, and cruises are offering the lowest rates anyone has seen in years. While it may not be a good idea to hop on the next cruise ship you see, prices will remain low as economies recover. This means that you can still take advantage of low prices after the Coronavirus pandemic subsides.
Check for Local Excursions
You don’t have to travel far to have a great trip. Oftentimes, the cost of getting to your destination far outweighs the amount you spend while you’re there. So, why not travel a shorter distance? This way, you can spend more money on the actual experience! For example, if there’s a vineyard in your city or state, why not sign up for a luxury vineyard tour and wine tasting? Even if wine isn’t your thing, there’s bound to be something within driving distance that piques your interest!
