Planning the perfect coach trip means choosing a companion that you will get along with even in close quarters, and selecting a destination that will keep you excited and even enthralled. As well as companion and destination, however, there are a number of other factors to consider if you want to make sure that you enjoy the best possible coach trip. No matter where you are visiting, what you intend to do, and how long you will spend on the coach, the following tips can help to ensure a more pleasurable holiday.
Entertainment On The Trip
Most coach trips will require several hours spent actually on the coach. Some of us are happy to look out of the window, or to chat to our companion, but even the most relaxed and self-sufficient of travellers requires something to keep them entertained after a few hours. Take a book, a puzzle book, or a pen and paper. If you have an ebook reader, make sure this is charged and that you have something good to read already prepared and downloaded.
Always ensure that you have adequate refreshments available for the trip. If you don’t drink enough fluids, you will feel more tired, you will be more irritable, and you will start to ache more. No matter how limited your space, you should have room for a bottle of water, which you can refill when you next stop.
Take Loose Change
It may be tempting to load your wallet with notes, but the stress of carrying hundreds of pounds can really be a drag. With that said, you won’t want to have to spend every couple of hours trying to find a bank machine, and if you find that you are stranded unexpectedly, a few pounds of loose change could make all the difference. Carry a good selection of coins, as well as a small amount of money in notes.
Plan Your Travelling Outfit
Being comfortable, dry, and warm while travelling will help ensure that your coach trip starts off well. If you arrive at your hotel or destination and you are uncomfortable, damp, or irritated by uncomfortable clothing, it is unlikely that you will be able to enjoy the start of your holiday. Dress in layers, so that you can add or remove them as required, ensure that you carry a light waterproof jacket, and determine whether the coach has air conditioning to determine exactly what you should wear as a bottom layer.
Pack Light And Pack Sensibly
Pack light to ensure that you can get your suitcase on the coach. Like any other form of transport, there is usually a baggage allowance that must be met, and if you go over this allowance, it is unlikely that you will have the ability to pay for additional weight like you can on a flight. Only pack the things you need or might need, buy items that are smaller and more convenient, and share the load with your companion if necessary.
