Tips To Plan Your Trip
Many people prefer to design their own experiences instead of using travel agencies. Although many think that using agencies is more expensive, the reality is that many times it is not like that. The agencies design groups and buy in high volumes, which in many cases allows them to get super-cheap rates even with their profit. Example of this offers that I have seen in Mexico or Costa Rica for less than $ 800 per person including air, hotels, transportation, and excursions for a week. In these cases, planning it on your own is very difficult to achieve those costs. What will define when it is cheaper to use an agency or not will depend on the destinations, the type of experie nce you seek and especially the time you have to design your trip.
If you are going to organize your next vacation on your own, I share a small guide to help you design your experience at the best cost and without setbacks.
Define your budget
How much is the maximum per person you have available to invest? This is what will define the destination options and how many days your trip will be. It is essential that in this figure you take into consideration the expenses during the trip.
