1. Plan but stay flexible

Starting your vacation planning early gives you a significant advantage, from getting early booking discounts, also for booking GoOpti transport, to having your pick of accommodations. You can use these travel apps to organize your itinerary and keep track of reservations.

Planning is good but be careful not to overdo it. People often quickly forget what their summer break should really be all about: relaxing and letting go. Rather than scheduling activities every single day, create a loose itinerary with must-see spots and activities, however, leave some of your time for spontaneous fun.

2. Opt for the Absolutely no worries package

It all starts on the way to the airport. To make it as stress-free as possible, don't forget to add the Absolutely No Worries Package to your GoOpti booking. Why? In case of unexpected situations and flight delays, we'll take care of everything, and you won't be left without your transport.

3. Pack smart and light

Packing can be a major source of stress. Aim for a minimalist approach by packing versatile clothing that can be mixed and matched and avoid adding unnecessary items. Remember, most places have stores where you can buy anything you might have missed. Here you can find some essential tips to help you organize your backpack efficiently and stress-free!

4. Do a digital detox

Consider limiting your screen time during your holiday. Constant notifications and the urge to check (work) emails can prevent you from fully relaxing. Set specific times to check your phone and social media, or better yet, try a complete digital detox for a few days.

5. Prioritize self-care

To get the most out of your summer, it’s important to slow down and savour the present moment. This is the ideal opportunity to reconnect with yourself and give yourself a real break. Yoga, morning run, meditation, and reading can be a great addition to your holiday routine. 

A relaxed summer holiday is all about finding the right balance between planning and spontaneity, activity and rest. By following these five hacks, we are sure that you can reduce stress and maximize enjoyment.

Sharing is caring. Just saying.
