How To Be A Smart & Sophisticated Traveller

4 June 2018

When you think of traveling, do you tend to get one set image in your mind? If that’s the case, you’re
certainly not alone. But you may find that this puts you off on what you’re trying to do. Maybe you want
to shake off the image of being a backpackers and get yourself into the smart and sophisticated frame
of mind instead - you can be a chic traveler if this is what you really want. If you want to travel
the world and make memories at the same time, you certainly can. However, you will need to make
sure that you do it on your own terms and when they’re very glamorous ones, you need to put the right
steps in place. Here are five tips to help you do just that!

1. Pack Smart

First of all, you have to be able to pack smart. Don’t think about taking out everything that you own and
trying to take it with you. Instead, you need to be able to pick out pieces that go together. If you want to
besmart, you need to take as little as possible. And if you want to be sophisticated, you need to look
chic. This is where a capsule wardrobe is going to come into play. So make sure that you’re being really
conscious about what you pack. Personally, I plan my outfits before I go on holiday to avoid my very
renowned tendency to overpack. By planning my day and evening outfits, a lot of space is saved so you
can bring back memorabilia and souvenirs from your travels.

2. Get A Good Deal On A Hotel

When you want to stay in a nice place, you could be looking at a hefty bill. But you don’t have to spend
your life savings on your accommodation if you don’t want to. If you want to make sure that you’re
getting the best value for money possible, you going to want to look at the best deals for luxury hotels.
Whether you’re going for a week or a month, when you can save money here, you’ll be traveling

3. Visit The Hot Spots

Next, you’re going to want to make sure that you visit the right locations. You may not want to get
yourself wrapped up in all of the touristy spots, so instead, you need to do your research. Look online
before you go to find the trendiest restaurants and chicest spots to drink at and you should find that
you get more of a real experience. I find a lot of inspiration via bloggers, vloggers and family members.
My number one tip is to DO YOUR RESEARCH - this will save you so much time, allowing you to make
the most of your days away and fit in everything you want to do throughout your trip!

4. Keep Your Finances In Order

At the same time, you need to make sure that you know where you are with your finances.
Think about getting a travel credit card and collection air miles to be smart. But if you want to be
sophisticated and invest in the right experience, specialist financing like boat loans could be an option.
Just make sure that you’re always aware of where you are with your finances. It's important to do your
research before going and ensuring that your costs will cover everything you're planning to do.

5. Make Memories

Finally, you’re then going to want to make your travels memorable. If you only get to do this once,
then you need to make this trip count. Try to fit in as much as possible and make time for the places you want to see or experiences you want do the most. Don't think that everything will cost a ridiculous amount of money - they are incredible trips and experiences you can endure that will have little expenses. Make the most of you time - try something new, take photos and treasure these memories for the rest of your life. I always love telling my travel stories, sharing them with friends, family and the internet!
