Asking the Right Questions to Measure the Effectiveness of Your Trip Planning

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Ready for an amazing trip? I hope so, because I am excited for you! I know why you are here. You’ve always wanted to plan a trip, but never knew how to. Or maybe you though you did and it ended badly. We understand. Planning seems easy at first, but the more you look into it, the more challenging it becomes.

Traveling is the best thing that can happen to any of us – but that’s only after making the plans! Until we get to the enjoyable part, we must go through the necessary to-dos.
So, where do you begin? First, smile! You are going on a trip soon! Breathe in, breath out, and congratulate yourself on the accomplishment. Next, sit down, grab a paper and a pen (or open up your laptop), and brainstorm. Let’s see how to plan an effective trip together and enjoy our stay!

Where do you want to go?

I know there are soooo many opportunities to choose from, but you must pick one. It’s challenging, but you must keep organized in order to plan effectively. Many people talk about traveling like they talk about going to the gym – they pretty much know what they what to do, but they have no clear idea about it. That won’t give you any incentive! It will just distract you from your unorganized itinerary.


Make top 5 destination list

Check those countries’ currencies and compare them to the dollar

If on a budget, choose the one that is less financially burdening

If not, pick the one with the greatest reviews

If you really can’t decide, make a Pros and Cons list and go with it

What do you want to do?

There are two types of travelers in this world: backpackers and tourists. Where do you situate? If you are a tourist, you will probably travel with a big suitcase and visit common places. If you are a backpacker, you are most likely going to visit uncommon, uncrowded places, wearing only a small backpack which includes the essentials.

Don’t get me wrong – even if I am a backpacker, I don’t blame tourists. They enjoy their time everywhere they go, and are extremely wonderful people! Being a backpacker is harder and cheaper though. It really depends on your budget and desires. After you’ve decided what type of traveler you are going to be, make a list of activities you want to do and places you want to see.
How much time do you have?

After deciding where you want to go, decide how long you want to stay in each of the places you’re visiting. Don’t make a strict plan and buy all the tickets in advance – that leaves no room for improvising.
Clara Bottom is a world traveler who offers people assignment help whenever they need it. This is how she earns her living and affords to travel the world. She says, “What if you are going to meet the love of your life in Paris and decide to spend one more night there? Buying a ticket beforehand is inconvenient in such situations. Think about the approximate time you are going to spend in each place, and write it down. Don’t set the dates in advance though. It’s boring!”

What’s your budget?

They say you can’t travel without money – that is bee-s. Of course you can. That’s called traveling on a budget. It’s hard, it might be a pain in the bum, you might have to make compromises, but there is a way. There is always a way. Research your costs in advance and make a daily plan. For instance, if you are going to New York, plan to spend around $100 per day. That means $1,000 per week. Always think about it like that!

Laila Johnson, if you decided to be a backpacker, your costs are going to be lower and you might be able to afford traveling for a longer period. If you are a tourist, staying in luxury hotels and having expensive meals will be pretty expensive. Again, it’s solely about your wishes!

Check for deals and book your flight in advance

There are last-minute deals available at times, and their offers are great. Check for those wherever you can! The accommodation prices for such offers are amazing. Also, book you flight in advance in order to avoid high costs. You’ll find great deals on Black Friday, so watch out! Check Skyscanner or Kayak, they always have very good offers.


Now that you are all set, the only thing left to do is have fun! As I’ve said, planning accordingly beforehand is going to save you time and effort during the trip. And aren’t you escaping in order to relax? I hope I’ve helped you with tips on how to plan properly. Feel free to live a comment or feedback of any kind. Good luck, and safe travels!
