6 tips to make the most of your summer vacation

We’ve put together a quick guide to help you ditch the stress for bucket-loads of holiday fun and, precious memories with your family.

Explore holiday destinations with the whole family

Relaxing on a quiet beach or taking in a vibrant culture of a city - What are you looking forward to doing this holiday? Narrow down the destinations that suit your pocket then gather your partner, friends or family to explore your options. This way everyone is on the same page and you know exactly what to expect when the time comes.

Book your stay

Now that you have taken the first steps, it’s time to make travel arrangements and book your accommodation. If you need to book flights, do this early to take advantage of discounts offered by your preferred airline. Consider calling a few different accommodation establishments and asked about what deals are on offer for your travel dates.

Getting around in an unfamiliar place

It can be quite stressful being the one expected to transport the family in an unfamiliar city and, whilst you have the option of using a map or GPS device, there’s still the odd chance that it can steer you to an entirely different place. You’re on holiday too, why not make use of a concierge or local taxi service? It’s the stress-free alternative!

Things to see and do

Whether you’re visiting a popular destination or a place that most people haven’t heard of – it’s important to research activities and create an itinerary. Feeling adventurous? Blend with the locals and get them to show you around the best places in town!

Eat your way around town

One of the best ways to experience a destination is through its food. Create a list of popular family-friendly restaurants and eateries around your holiday destination and treat your family to delicious dishes indigenous to the place you’re visiting.

Get packing... early!

While it’s the not exactly the most exciting thing to do before a memorable vacation, it’s the most important part. You wouldn’t want to reach your destination only to realise that you’d forgotten to pack the essentials.

That’s it. You’re on your way to planning a fabulous family vacation but, just in case you’re already over all the planning – book your stay with Tsogo Sun between 1 September and 31 December 2017 to stand a chance to win your share of prizes worth over R700000, including the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Edition C with AMG Line, iPads, weekend holidays, Takealot vouchers and luggage.
