Decide where you want to go
There are many places to go, each with their own things to see and to do. That is why it is very important to choose where you want to go. Try to fit it with your budget, the activities you would like to do, the time of the year, or any other things that you think might make a difference for your holiday plan. If you are travelling abroad, try researching the requirements needed for a visa.
Decide how long you will be staying
It is very important to check your calendar first, and reserve the dates for your holiday in advance. You would not want your plan to clash with other activities. Once you could find the right date, it is also important to determine how long you will be staying there. After all, you would not want your ideal holiday to be disturbed by office affairs, right?
Research how much you will be spending
Now that you know where you would like to go and when you are going, it is time to plan how much you will be spending during your ideal holiday. You can find out how much your trip and holiday will cost online. This part should include ALL expenses from the moment you went out the door, and come back from the door. However, you have to remember to put some emergency spending on the plan.
Start filling the bank for your trip
Since you have pretty much planned out how much you will at least need for your holiday, it is now time to actually fill the fat piggy with money. Do a crosscheck between the total cost of your trip and how much money you will have to save for that trip. One way to do this is by cutting out weekend dinner or movie nights for some months.
Find methods of transportation
It is very crucial to know how you will get to where you are going. Usually, the alternatives are flights and cars; if you need to take some flights to your destination, try comparing tickets from multiple websites and/or choose a bundle with hotel if they are cheaper. If you use a car, make sure you do a full service on your car in advance.
Plan out your activities
In order to have an ideal holiday, make sure you already have an itinerary set with the number of days you will spend near the location. Study about the tourist attractions and places near where you are staying. If it is possible to reserve before your holiday actually begins, it will be totally better.
Use many applications
The advancement of technology and applications are helping us to live our daily lives better. Some of the important applications you would need to be able to use (at least) are: Google Maps/Waze, Uber/GO-Jek/GRAB so you can travel a lot easier, and some social media applications such as Instagram.
Enjoy your trip
