Vol. 1 Why Book Your Own Travel Plans and Where to Go?

This is the first article in our series, called Travel Guides and Tips.  In this series we’ll be discussing the best ways to research, plan, and  purchase the most valued travel plans.  With the use of the web, or   Internet, purchasing your own travel plans has become easier than   ever.  We, at A Peace of Mind Travel.com (APOMT.com), are dedicated to helping you get started and pass along many tips that will ensure a great trip every time.

 

Why Book Your Own Travel Plans?

There are many reasons why you should research and purchase your own trip online, including:

  • learn more about the place you plan to visit,
  • have full control of the buying decisions,
  • be more prepared and know what to expect on your trip,
  • find new and exciting activities to do while on your trip, and
  • discover more places you’d like to visit in the future.  

 

What is the most important part?

Research, is the most important part of planning your own trip.  It’s the number one way to find the best value travel plans, according to travel agents.  This research doesn’t have to take up a lot of time, matter of fact we created A Peace of Mind Travel to cut down the time it takes to research and plan a trip.  By using our free research to plan your trip you’re able to start making plans much faster.

 

Where to Go?

Figuring out where you want to go is the first step in making travel plans.  If you were to research every travel spot in the world it would take a very long time, so it is important to narrow down your search.  Most travel enthusiasts have a list of places they want to explore during their lifetime.  I guess you could call this their “travel bucket list.”  Some have it written down, others just keep it in mind, however for this exercise we’re going to write down your own travel bucket list.  First I would recommend writing down places you’ve dreamed of visiting.  Get together with your travel companions and come up with some places you’ve said “I always wanted to go there.”  Also, ask your friends and family where they have traveled.  If you come up with nothing don’t worry we have a list of sites where you might find some great ideas.

 

Websites and publications for travel ideas:

1.  A Peace of Mind Travel Tips Forum

2.  Apple Vacations E-Brochures

3.  Fodor’s Guidebooks

4.  Trip Adviser

5.  Travel + Leisure Magazine

6.  Budget Travel Magazine

7.  National Geographic Traveler Magazine

8.  Conde Nest Traveler Magazine

9.  Travel Weekly.com

10. Travel Channel.com

   

Once you have a list of at least 10 travel ideas write what you envision the amenities and activities would be like for each, and number them in order of importance. Start at the top of your list and ask for a few quotes from our travel partners at A Peace of Mind Travel Search Engines (www.travelsearchengines.info).  You may find that the price, level of service, season, or the recommended length of stay may, or may not be a good fit for your desires right now.  If not, the list gives you more options and ideas to continue researching.  Keep in mind, usually the more exotic your destination, the higher the price tag will be, and the more complex the planning can get.  For example, if you wanted to take a trip to theHawaiian Islandsyou would have to plan transportation between the islands and maybe multiple accommodations.

So, as you can see there are many reasons why you should book your own trip online.  We like being in the driver’s seat of the decision process, and we think you will too.  Follow our easy techniques and you will save a lot of time, money, and effort.   In future volumes we’ll be discussing more in-depth travel tips and secrets. 

What’s your dream vacation?

Genuinely,

Important Information before you buy your next trip from AppleVacations.com, Part 3 of 4

 

AppleVacations.com

Today we are writing a review about a travel company called AppleVacations.com. This review will be released in three articles and a video tutorial on how to navigate Apple Vacations.com. We’ll tell you what Apple Vacations.com has to offer and show you tips that will help you find the most value. If you missed our first two reviews click on these links Part 1 (Intro and Advantages) and Part 2 (Recommendations and Tips).

Apple Vacations has pre-trip Park & Fly and Park, Sleep, & Fly packages that can save you money and ensure you are well rested for your trip. For a list of departure cities visit AppleVacations.com.

What activities do you want to do on your vacation? Some travelers have no clue what they want to do while on their trip until they’ve been at their destination for a few days. When you’re traveling to a new place it’s best to use the tour operators of the company you purchased your travel from. The tour operators want to make sure you have fun and stay safe so they can keep their contract with the travel company. From experience I’ve found it’s better to do a little research ahead of time and decide what activities you would like to do. Apple Vacations is partnered with Amstar®, which has been in business more than 20 years as a tour operator company. Find out what activities you can set up ahead of time and purchase along with your travel plans at Apple Vacations.com.

Travel is an investment just like any other big ticket item, so it’s important to consider purchasing travel insurance. When planning a trip it’s impossible to predict any issues that might come up. Did you know that your health insurance company might not cover an emergency while you’re in another state or country. Please read carefully and understand the Apple Vacations O.K. Total Vacation Security Plan or AV-O.K. It’s a good idea to contact your health insurance company and find out what your policy covers while you’re traveling. If you have questions about AV-OK call an Apple Vacations representative. Note: The AV-OK Total Vacation Security Plan must be purchased no later than the close of the following business day after you guarantee your trip.

Important: Before you press that button to purchase your trip and start packing for your dream vacation please do the following:

1. Review the Apple Vacations terms and conditions called their Fair Trade Contract. Even if you don’t read     anything else please read this contract.

2. Look carefully at your itinerary and charges, including taxes and fees.

3. If you are traveling to an all-inclusive resort that does not have a ‘no tipping policy’ find out the normal tipping guidelines, because it can add up.

Other perks AppleVacations.com has to offer:

Apple Vacations is always running fun and very rewarding contests. Right now, it’s called the Best Shot contest and the winner receives a free vacation for a family of four.

If you like to travel with a group AppleVacations.com offers deeper discounts.

Apple Vacations has a rewards MasterCard® and usually running promotions. The current promotion is you will earn a $50 gift card and $100 travel voucher after qualifying a transaction(s). See AppleVacations.com for more details.

AppleVacations.com has it all!

According to AppleVacations.com they are your One Stop Shop to the Sun, Slopes and Sights. Whether you’re looking for a cheap flight or all-inclusive vacation, luxury vacation, family vacation, honeymoon package, last-minute vacation, golf vacation, or group travel deal, make AppleVacations.com your first stop. From the tropical sun of Mexico, Costa Rica, the Caribbean and Hawaii, to the most popular ski slopes in the USA and the most amazing sights of Europe, AppleVacations.com has it all!

Recommendations and Tips using AppleVacations.com, Part 2 of 4 by A Peace of Mind Travel

 

Today we are writing a review about a travel company called Apple Vacations.com. This review will be released in three articles and a video tutorial on how to navigate Apple Vacations.com. We’ll tell you what Apple Vacations.com has to offer and show you tips that will help you find the most value.

Once on Apple Vacations.com I’d recommend spending a few minutes reading the advantages discussed in Apple Vacations.com Review Part 1. For your convenience you will notice at the bottom of their home page is a quick list of all the destinations they specialize in. You are able to click on each destination to get a quick overview of each destination and a list of things to do

If you need more ideas about where you would like to go on your next trip Apple Vacations.com offers colorful and informational web based E-Brochures that you may browse through to help you find some ideas. In addition, look for the destination pictures and videos through out their site.

Next, I would suggest registering on Apple Vacations.com so they can customize the web site to your travel preferences. Also sign up to receive their travel specials on their home page or registration form.

Keep in mind Apple Vacations offers some of the best all-inclusive trips in the business and can be a better value than a cruise.

Look for the Apple Vacations Square Deals which are last minute vacation bargains. You choose the departure date, destination, and hotel Apple rating. They will inform you of your hotel just prior to departure. In return for your flexibility, you’ll save hundreds! Get the details about the Square Deals on their site.

By flying with Apple Vacations.com’s sister airlines called USA 3000 Airlines® which is one of the top 10 domestic airlines. With USA 3000® you are currently able to purchase a Preferred Perks Plan for $20 per trip segment. Preferred Perks gives you a preferred check-in line, boarding, seating, and a luggage tag so your luggage is given priority.

On Apple Vacations.com you will find customer rated hotels, resorts and TripAdvisor® Ratings. Also look for the (Golden Apple)! When you select a Golden Apple Hotel you can rest assured you’ve made an outstanding choice! Every year their vacationers honor a select group of hotels with their Golden Apple Hotel Award. This award is given to hotels who earned exceptional ratings on their Vacation Satisfaction Questionnaires. Some are moderate and others deluxe, but all Golden Apple Hotels offer an exceptional standard of quality, service and value.

If you have any questions they have a toll-free customer service number and their hours are Mon-Fri 7am-9pm C.S.T. and Sat & Sun 9am-5pm C.S.T.

This concludes the 2nd part of our Apple Vacations.com review. For our next part, Part 3, we’ll be discussing more perks and valuable information available at Apple Vacations.

Introduction on How A Peace of Mind Travel may Assist You with Your Travel Needs

 

Hello Travelers,

My name is C.S. Montgomery and I’m a Certified Travel Agent.  While working as a travel agent I could only help one person at a time however, by creating a 100% Free Educational Travel Site I have an opportunity to teach many people how to research and purchase travel.  This article explains all the travel resources we have to offer and we invite you to visit our web site to become a part of our traveling community.

A Peace of Mind Travel.com is an all-inclusive travel resource center to help travelers research, plan, and purchase their travel arrangements through our hand picked travel partners.  Our vision is to create a place were a community of travelers can come together to share their experiences, passion, and love for travel.

To become a smart and thrifty traveler you should gain a firm foundation of how the travel industry works and use the experiences of other travelers.  Serving as a travel agent I have learn tips and resources that the general public is not aware of or they just don’t have access to.  At A Peace of Mind Travel.com we have and will continue to add tools, resources, tips, and guides to assist travelers to make educated travel plans.

It is a BIG world out there and it’s impossible for one person to have all the answers to your travel questions. A Peace of Mind Travel.com is dedicated to reaching out to the traveling community to bring you answers and deliver them in one clear and easy source.

To find the best travel deals it all comes down to research, timing and knowing where to find that special trip.  Our travel search engines page gives you all your favorite travel sites in one place with ratings, reviews, tips, and promotions.  Throughout the site you will find many opportunities to share helpful and useful knowledge with each other.  In addition, our Travel Tips Forum was created to give you the freedom to discuss a wide range of travel topics.

It’s hard to find the best prices when buying travel arrangements because travel acts more like the stock market than most people think.  It all comes down to the principles of supply and demand, as demand goes up supply goes down and your price goes up.  Unfortunately, due to the changes in supply and demand the prices can change minute to minute for us travelers.  There are other factors that can change the price of travel, which we will discuss this in further detail on our web site, blogs, articles, and videos.  To find the best travel deals you have to understand everything that drives pricing and time your purchases to take advantage of the best deal for you.

Safety while traveling sometimes isn’t on everyone’s mind.  When most people travel it’s a time to relax, recoup, and let your hair down, so people tend to let their guard down as well.  Unfortunately, in today’s world we need to take a few precautions to make sure that everyone returns home safely.  At A Peace of Mind Travel we care about your safety and will be discussing ways to help you become a smarter more informed traveler.

It’s in our human nature to go exploring; however we all have different tastes and expectations we want to experience while on our trip.  It’s important as you read ratings and reviews that you understand some people might exaggerate their comments and so please keep this in mind when researching your trip.

Our commitment to you will never stop.  We wish to gain your trust and loyalty by researching new and innovative ways to assist you in making better well-informed decisions.  Our goal is to be the first web site you thinking of travelling.

We appreciate the opportunity to serve your travel needs and we’ll see you at A Peace of Mind Travel.com

Genuinely,

C.S. Montgomery
