A Step by Step Guide for Planning Your Trip

Ready to embark on the adventure of a lifetime?

Imagine confidently planning your own international trip, armed with insider secrets and expert guidance – without needing a travel agent.

But why do this myself instead of just going to a travel agent?

You sure can, but booking your own trip can offer several advantages over using a travel agent:

  1. Cost Savings: When you plan and book your trip directly, you can often find better deals and discounts, as you have full control over your choices and can shop around for the best prices.
  2. Personalisation: You have the freedom to tailor your trip to your exact preferences, from choosing specific accommodation to crafting a personalised itinerary that aligns with your own interests.
  3. Flexibility: Booking on your own allows you to make last-minute changes or adjustments to your plans without the need to go through a travel agent, giving you more control over your travel experience.
  4. Research and Learning: Planning your trip independently provides an opportunity to research your destination thoroughly, helping you gain valuable knowledge and insights that enhance your travel experience.
  5. Empowerment: Successfully planning and executing your trip can be incredibly empowering and boost your confidence, making your travel experiences even more rewarding.
  6. Cost Transparency: You can see exactly where your money is going, which helps you stay within your budget and avoid hidden fees or commissions that travel agents might charge.
  7. Direct Communication: Booking directly with airlines, hotels, and other service providers allows you to communicate directly with them, potentially resolving any issues more efficiently.
  8. Adventure and Discovery: Booking your own trip encourages a sense of adventure and discovery as you navigate the logistics and immerse yourself in the culture of your chosen destination.

But who am I to be giving advice?

Hi there! I’m Josie, and I have planned and travelled independently to more than fifty countries across the globe.

I did not grow up a traveller. Before my late 30s, I had barely travelled at all. Booking that first international trip was daunting. Would I make an expensive mistake? Would I get the paperwork wrong? Would I forget something vital?

I had all the fears! But gradually I learned everything I need to know to plan, book and experience incredible travels.

Now booking and planning my next trip (or two) is a fun challenge, and I want to share that feeling with you so you too can plan your trip with confidence.
