1. Consider your destination, and who you are traveling with
Where you want to go will directly affect not only the price of your trip but also the length of your trip and the types of experiences you want to have. Aren’t sure where you want to go? Zicasso can help! Let us know how you like to travel, and we can make suggestions tailored just for you.
Are you looking for a family-friendly vacation, or are you looking for a honeymoon getaway? By considering who will be traveling with you, you can better understand the type of trip you want to have. While the Seychelles has fun for all ages, it is considered more of a romantic escape, while an African safari holds a surprising number of family-friendly activities.
The reality of the world with Covid-19 means that there will be health considerations before booking your trip. Working with a travel specialist will give you a better understanding of the safety requirements, suggestions, and precautions travelers should make in regards to both health and safety as you refine your plans.
2. Determine your trip budget
“There are two levers that you can adjust to control your overall trip cost: accommodations and experiences. Your accommodation choice, including room category, will likely have the most significant impact on your trip cost. After that, it's whether you prefer a fully-private experience or if you are happy with some shared excursions, transfers, and the like," says Stacey Sullivan, Zicasso’s Director of Partnerships.
