Making your own travel itinerary: step by step

Ready for some action? Follow these steps to create your own travel itinerary and get ready for your next adventure:

  1. Decide on your destination: The first step in creating a travel itinerary is to decide on your destination. Consider your budget, time constraints, and interests when choosing where to go. When you go by plane: first book your tickets before you start to plan anything else!

  2. Research your destination: Once you have decided on your destination, research it thoroughly. Look for popular attractions, activities, and landmarks. Find out about local customs, food, and culture.

  3. Determine your budget: Determine how much you can afford to spend on your trip. This will impact your itinerary, as some activities may be more expensive than others.

  4. Plan your accommodation: Decide on your accommodation based on your budget and preferences. Consider staying in a hotel, hostel, or Airbnb.

  5. Plan your transportation: Determine how you will get around your destination. Will you rent a car, take public transportation, or walk? Plan your transportation accordingly.

  6. Decide on your activities: Consider your interests when deciding on activities. Do you want to visit museums, go hiking, or relax on the beach? Ensure that you have enough time to do everything on your itinerary. Keep in mind: most museums have a free day or evening, hiking will cost you nothing and relaxing helps to recharge your batteries without attacking your bank account. But the 'touristy activities' like driving quads or go paragliding will cost you a fortune! So make sure you have all the information before you book expensive activities!

  7. Make reservations: Once you have finalized your itinerary, make reservations for any necessary activities or accommodations. This will ensure that everything is in place for your trip.

  8. Keep track of your expenses! It helps you to avoid negative surprises! You can download a FREE travel budget planner in our webshop!
