The holidays cannot be improvised, they are expected! And to make the most of it, here is the guide for the perfect holidaymaker: from preparation to return home.
Get ready in advance
We do not wait until the last minute to book a vacation. Choose your destination, plan the budget, find accommodation, book, it takes time! And the more we wait, the more rental prices are blazing: more reason not to hang around to look into the preparation of his stay. Getting six months in advance is reasonable, 3 months is still playable, but you can even start thinking about it as soon as you come back if you are planning.
Choose the right agency
The trip can go before you start! Some unscrupulous agencies disappear once the check is cashed. To avoid being fooled, gather all the clues that attest to the credibility of the agency (if the company really exists, if it is registered in the commercial register, etc.) and demand to sign a contract.

Do not forget to have papers in order
We use them so often that it is when we need them that we realize that they are no longer valid: the papers must be up to date to travel, including the identity card, passport if you are going abroad, insurance papers… Check them well in advance, as it usually takes a month to get new ones.
