Top Tips For Traveling

One of the best parts about living in a tropical-inspired, safe and secure oasis like Green Key Village is that you have all the freedom you need to get out and see the world. When you’re not enjoying the peace and privacy of your cozy home and friendly neighborhood, you can head out on the adventure of a lifetime! 

But before you check off the items on your vacay-inspired bucket list, make sure to check off the items on your pre-trip to-do list — from packing all of the essentials to contacting a kennel for your pet, there are a few things that you can do to ensure your peace of mind while you enjoy the best trip possible! Pro tip: print this list out, hang it up, and make notes wherever you need to do as you get everything done in order.

[  ] Speak To a Travel Agent: If you’ve never worked with a travel agent before, now’s the perfect time! Whether you know where you want to go or need a little help choosing the perfect spot, a knowledgeable agent can assist you with creating a timeline, choosing the right hotel, putting together an itinerary, etc. Best of all, they’ll keep you in the loop about the best travel discounts too!

[  ] Plan Ahead: Once you’ve decided on the destination of your dreams, you can start planning all of your fun and activities. Travel books found in your local bookstore, online resources, and word of mouth will help you prepare the best things to see and do. Keep a running list of what you’re planning to do, whether it be on your smartphone, laptop, or in a notebook.

[  ] Travel Must-Haves: Of course, what you pack depends on where you go — will you be relaxing on a beach or skiing in a beautiful resort? But a few key items are always good to double check! Having a phone charger on you at all times reduces headaches in situations like plane delays, comfortable walking shoes always make a good back up, and an easy, organized container of your medications provides peace of mind.

[  ] Contact the Kennel: Although you can’t wait for your vacation, it’s always hard to say see you later to your furry friend. If your pet has had success staying in kennels in the past, it’s a good idea to call ahead of time (from 1-3 months around major holidays) to ensure that you get a secure spot. This way, you won’t have to stress or worry about your pet while you get ready for your trip.

[  ] Keep in Touch With a Neighbor: At Green Key Village, you can always think of your neighbors as family. Asking a neighbor to periodically put your packages and mail inside, pay a visit to your pet (if you decide to keep them at home), or even just check up on your place can put your mind even more at ease while you’re traveling. After all, who doesn’t want to be in complete relaxation mode while you’re enjoying vacation?
