…What Sort of Holidaymaker Are You?
Look around at an airport and you might be able to tell the difference between who’s booked on last minute holidays and the travellers that have carefully planned their breaks, even down to the best-selling novel they’re getting stuck into.
Planners are the types who purchase a package holiday well in advance of their trip and may even be marking the weeks off a calendar as they eagerly await the moment they step off a plane and into skis, onto a beach or out on the streets of a bustling city. On the other hand, last-minute holiday-goers may only have booked their bargain trip the day before and have a hurriedly packed bag with a brand-new guidebook to a destination they never even knew they were going to!
These two types of traveller are at far ends of the scale, and most holidaymakers fall somewhere in between. If you’ve decided to book a break and want to change your normal habits, maybe it’s a good idea to take a look at our rundown of the pros and cons of planning versus leaving everything to the last minute.
