First things first. Even if you don’t have a specific trip in mind, get your passport. Processing times for passports and travel documents can take a month or more, and that great new travel deal can be here and gone in as quick as 24 hours! Some travel deals are too good to pass up and you have to act fast, be prepared and have all of your travel documents ready to go.
Pick a Price Range
Know your price range. If you set aside a budget and save money for a trip, you are more likely to take that dream vacation if you plan ahead of time. By choosing and sticking to a price range you could also set a clear idea of what you want to do on your trip. Once that goal is set, you’ll feel more comfortable in locating and purchasing your vacation.
Pick the Vacation that Suits Your Personality
Would you rather lie on the beach all day or see as many sights as you can? It’s best to identify the type of vacation you and your travel companions want up front. There are many vacations to consider, pick the place best suited for you. For instance, do you want a beach vacation, city vacation, or an outdoor vacation? These are all things to consider when planning your vacation. If you want to lounge on the beach and do as little as possible, you probably won’t want to go on a vacation that has a lot of active tours; or if you want to explore the sights of a city, you probably want to choose a vacation with tours, guides and experiences to get the most from your trip. If you aren’t sure, just ask a Travel Team Agent, we can help you choose the vacation that is right for you!

Great, did you want to be there for the Running of the Bulls in July? If running with the bulls is not your goal, maybe choose a different time of year to go. Thinking of Cancun? College kids flood Cancun for Spring Break. These events drive prices up.
