When this is all over and life has come back to normal and you’re Lucky enough to have the funds to go on that lifelong world travel dream you’ve always had, you may just be so excited that you may make some mistakes that make you look -and feel- like an amateur. For that, the purpose of this article is to stop you from doing just that. Here are 10 unfortunate mistakes that almost all travelers make.
1. Staying Far from Downtown
This stunt is done mostly for Economy but booking your cheaper hotel on the outskirts of the city of your holiday destination can prove to be anything but economic. Usually, the difference in booking prices between downtown hotels and outskirt hotels of the same rating isn’t all that significant, but what can turn up to be significant is the transportation-related costs that you will be spending that when added to the accommodation price can turn out to be at a deficit in comparison to booking a hotel in the heart of the city where everywhere interesting is accessible on foot. Moreover, the mere convenience of it makes it almost a no-brainer.
For instance, if your hotel is always a walk away, you can just go back for a quick shower or nap to freshen yourself up for the rest of the day as opposed to having to wait it out because you only have the budget for one round trip to your hotel, wasting the very reason you’re on holiday; fun. And of course, there are the safety and atmosphere factors to it. You want to be in a place full of people and action that makes you truly feel the vibe of the city and helps keep trouble away from you.
