Four New Year's Resolutions for Travelers

20 December 2016

The end of the year is the perfect time to reflect on all you’ve accomplished and plan all you hope to achieve in the year to come.

If you haven’t made your New Year’s resolutions yet, now is the time to start. If you’re stuck, don’t worry. We have a few suggestions to help you get started.

Take a Vacation Planning vacations around work, school, extracurricular activities and other commitments can be difficult. According to studies, more than half of employees don’t use their vacation time. Still, getting away from the rigors of everyday life has physical and emotional benefits. Research shows vacations reduce burnout, help prevent heart disease, improve productivity and improve sleep for children and adults. Unsure of where to go? Start by taking a look at some of our itineraries!

Enjoy your Business Trips Resolve to make the most out of your business trips. Take time between meetings to try a new restaurant, dip into a unique shop or just explore the city. Business travel becomes a lot more enjoyable when you don’t feel like you have to rush. One way to help alleviate that sense of urgency? Check out our tips for combating business travel blues business travel blues or book our Business Package and receive a late check-out or early check-in if you need it!

Celebrate Road Trips Traveling is about the journey, right? Make this the year you take the road trip you’ve been talking about. Hop on the road with a loved one, show the kids an old favorite vacation spot, finally visit those historic sites you’ve always wanted to see. No matter where you end up, we’re ready to welcome you at a Country Inns & Suites By Carlson location along the way. Need assistance? We have a few tips on planning a trip from start to finish. 

Plan Ahead Before you head back to work after the holidays, take time to plan your vacation schedule. This not only gives you something to look forward to, but it also allows you to take advantage of great deals – like our Advance Purchase Rate where you can receive a discount of up to 20% off. Planning ahead isn’t just knowing where you want to go and getting the best deal, however. It’s about reducing stress where you can. One way to do this is by packing early and packing light. This helps you stay organized and reduces the chances of forgetting something.

As the year quickly comes to a close, we want to wish you a safe and Happy New Year! Wherever your travels lead you, we hope to see you at a Country Inns & Suites locationwhere we’ll be waiting with warm cookies and a complimentary hot Be Our Guest Breakfast!
