There are occasions in our life which call for an out-of-the-ordinary celebration. Whether this is hitting a certain age, retiring, or a honeymoon, one way which is gaining in popularity to mark the event is to travel with those closest to you to create lifelong memories. The world is a vast place, so whatever way you want to celebrate, be it beach break, urban exploration or embracing nature, there’s a destination to make it a trip you’ll never forget. How do you plan the perfect milestone holiday? Below are three ways to ensure you stay on track and organise something everyone will love.
Where to Stay
A milestone holiday calls for luxury accommodation; somewhere you can call home for the duration of the trip, and somewhere you can truly relax. While 5-star hotels may be your first thought, if you are travelling with a large group, it can be challenging to find a hotel which can not only find room for everyone but which fits into the budget. One option is to opt for a stylish villa. Villa holidays give you the chance to make yourselves at home and share a more intimate holiday than you would in a hotel. By choosing a villa, you not only have bedrooms for every member, but you also have a kitchen where you can create homemade meals together, as well as pools to recline and relax in.
Choosing a Destination
Do you want a break where you can dip in and out of a pool when the weather starts to rise, or do you want to explore a brand-new city? Does a beachside break call to you, or do you prefer hiking through forests? The answer to these questions will help you to choose the ideal destination, but you also need to take into account the wishes and ideas of those who are joining you. If you are travelling with your young family, a destination which offers entertainment and activities suitable to children will need to be a priority, whereas if it’s you and your partner, a romantic, secluded area may tick the boxes. If you are booking your honeymoon, consider somewhere off the beaten track, where you and your new spouse can enjoy peace and serenity together. While Paris is an obvious choice for a romantic getaway, it is also expensive, so an alternative may be an island paradise, such as Bali (if you don’t mind the long-haul flight!).
Travel in Style
Wherever you choose to go, there will be an element of travelling involved, whether that’s by air, sea, or driving. For a once-in-a-lifetime milestone getaway, this is your chance to experience luxurious transport. If you are flying to a faraway destination, why not upgrade from economy class and travel in style by choosing first-class flights. There are ways to find deals for such seats cheaper than usual, such as specialist software and booking in advance. Flying first-class will see you arrive at your location refreshed and relaxed, ready to start the holiday on the right foot.
