travel itinerary
Instead of binging the latest Netflix series for another day, why not plan a future holiday? Research a continent you have always wanted to see and make a basic plan of the locations and sites you want to go to. Maybe it's South East Asia's beaches, Australia's accent or the beautiful rainforests of South America.

Before you set off on your journey, make sure to consider how you will get there. Gatwick is one of the UK's top 5 airports and has a whole host of destinations available to you. Make sure to include the train travelling to Gatwick in your travel itinerary. Preparation is key.

Make 2021 the year you plan a trip of a lifetime! Here are a few tips on how to travel across the most popular continents in the world.

Australia

When it comes to Australia, budgeting needs to be your priority. Travellers often blow through their budget in Australia and underestimate the inflation rates. Make sure to set a budget for accommodation, flights, restaurants and your phone's internet.

For example, on average, a meal in Australia will cost around 20 AUD, and a multi-day tour will come to 400 – 540 AUD.

The east coast is the most popular backpacking trail in Australia. You could see the great barrier reef, Fraser Island, Great Ocean Road and Sydney's opera house. There are little towns every 30 minutes or so as well.

If you want to relax and soak up the culture in each spot, leave at least four weeks to travel the east coast trail.

South America

South America is home to the Amazon rainforest, Machu Picchu trail and the infamous Galapagos Islands.

Consider travelling in the off-season to save money and avoid crowds. You might even get a better deal on the Galapagos tour in the offseason, leaving more money for accommodation and treats.

This will help you have meaningful conversations with the locals and save you from getting lost a few times.

Cyclovia happens once a week in some South American cities. Main roads closed so pedestrians and cyclists can roam freely, dance to live music in the streets and even engage in guinea pig races. This is a tradition you have to see!

South-East Asia

South-East Asia is a massive continent, so pick your destinations wisely. Choose a couple of countries which are close together and delve into their culture. Try not to exhaust yourself with a colossal itinerary and remember that some SEA countries are a 7-hour flight from each other!

Check your visa requirements, pack light and embrace all things relaxation. Visit both the cities and beaches in SEA to get the full experience.
