We all love a little luxury in our lives. Even the most hardened travelers I have met while scooting off across the globe have appreciated a slice of the finer things in life every once in a while. Most people are under the impression that luxury comes with a very a high price tag. It’s true in many cases – but it doesn’t have to be that way. Here are several ways that you can get some relaxing and extraordinary experiences for less. Enjoy!
For a luxurious – and quick – break away, why not try glamping? Whether you want to stay in a yurt, a pod or a giant teepee, there are plenty of options available to you. It’s also becoming a lot more popular, which means there are plenty of bargains to be had if you look in the right places. Make sure you head to a site with excellent facilities to make your trip that extra little bit special. Don’t get me wrong, it can still be an expensive trip. But it is far cheaper than staying in a luxury hotel. And if you make sure you go when the weather is great, it’s just like being abroad – without the expense of a flight or ferry.
Fly Business Class
Business class offers almost the same kind of luxuries that flying first class does, but is much cheaper. If you fly with a particular airline often, then see if you can upgrade your flight when you check in. If there are spare seats available and it is close to departure time, you may be able to snag yourself a deal.
Fly By Private Jet
You are probably thinking that flying by private jet is beyond your means and only a way for rich people and celebrities to go on their travels. Well, you are mostly right. However, you shouldn’t write it off. If you have a group of friends planning a trip away, then clubbing together and paying to fly privately may not be much more than the combined price of your regular tickets. Head over to Stratos Jets to see more on the benefits of traveling by charter. It could be the most luxurious thing you will ever do.
A little research before your holiday can go a long way. Especially when it comes to eating at some of the best restaurants the world has to offer. Now, I’m not saying that you can turn up and expect a five-course meal for the price of a McDonald’s. But with a lot of planning you can organise to visit most restaurants and enjoy their taster menus. You will get small portions of all their signature dishes, and experience some of the world’s finest dining for a fraction of the cost of a meal. It can still be expensive – but if you save for a few months beforehand, you can lessen the financial impact.
