Tips on Having a Luxe Vacation Without Spending Too Much

Vacations are our lifeline. With the demands of daily life becoming increasingly stressful and exhausting it’s never been more important to splurge out on fabulous vacations where we can disconnect, recharge our batteries and really treat ourselves. With that in mind, we want to share four top ways that you can supercharge your vacations, to make them extra special, extra luxurious and extra fabulous.


Luxe Vacation Tips


Splurge just one day and dine in a fine restaurant


Fine dining and the sampling of wonderful, local cuisine is certainly one of the most enjoyable parts of any vacation abroad. While sometimes it can be a little difficult to know exactly where to go to ensure you get to try the cream of the crop when it comes to food in your vacation destination. We have al fallen foul of the overpriced tourist traps and they can really put a damper on any vacation.


Therefore why not treat yourself to something really special and research the top restaurant in your chosen destination. Perhaps there is a michelin star restaurant or an infamously wonderful restaurant, hidden away somewhere that you can visit one night, to really treat yourself to a luxurious and super special night out.


Fly Private


One of the most loathsome parts of any vacation is the airports. All the waiting, the queues, security checks, not to mention the hours of sitting on a cramped plane, squished in between hundreds of noisy strangers. So why not cut out all the annoyance and inconvenience of traditional travel and charter your own plane? Sound a little too luxurious? Think again, there are many companies now that offer private jets at much more reasonable prices than you would imagine. So have a look online with a private jet company like Jettly and see whether this could be just the luxury ticket your vacation needs.


Charter a Yacht


If you are going somewhere sunny and tropical you are definitely going to want to spend time in the water, enjoying the sea. What better way is there, to enjoy the sea than to hire your own boat for a day, or two, and enjoy life on the ocean waves in your own lap of yachting luxury.


Have a look online and see if there are any private boat charters in the place that you are traveling to and explore the packages that they offer, to make sure that you are getting the best value for money. Most yacht charters take care of all the details, such as all the food, drink and most importantly, lots of bottles of chilled bubbles, so make sure you are looking at companies that pay attention to all the fine details to make sure that your private charter is the absolute best you can get.


Hire a Sports Car


Perhaps you are traveling somewhere where you are really interested in exploring and traveling around. In which case why not consider treating yourself to an all singing all dancing sports car rental. Can there be any better way to explore your vacation destination than from the comfort of your very own, nifty, shiny, a convertible sporty number with the breeze in your hair and the sun on your back. Fabulous!
