Planning for the holidays is both exciting and stressful - particularly if you're doing the bulk of the organization. But as with most things these days, planning is far easier and much more relaxed when done online, making organizing your holiday in this way a wise decision.
Flights are often cheaper online, and with plenty of flight comparison websites to choose from, you're sure to find the best deal for the type of getaway you have in mind. When searching online, remember to compare flights from different locations and times, and expand your search to include hotel and car hire maximum savings. Make sure your passports have at least six months left before they expire, and check the visa situation if travelling outside the EU - these things are best not left at the last minute!
Once your holiday is booked, you can start thinking about your outfits. Stock up on EASY-TO-PACK essentials like kaftans, sarongs and maxi dresses. If you plan to do a lot of sight seeing, a good pair of comfortable shoes or sandals is a must. You'll need some for your other significant half too - CLARKS men's shoes are good quality and comfortable, so should combat boots (and moaning!)
A large straw tote bag to carry all your beach essentials will make life easier once you arrive. Don't forget your hat either, and make sure you pack a cardigan for your return journey to the UK - it's bound to be much colder than your holiday destination!
Needless to say, make sure you have plenty of sun screen so that you're safe and protected while enjoying the hot weather. Don't be tempted to use leftovers either - sun scream loses its protectiveness over time, so buy a fresh supply every year and invest in some after-sun lotion to help rehydrate your skin. Store it in the fridge or the mini-bar at your hotel for a refreshing, soothing treat , should you find yourself a little hot and bothered by all that summer sun.
