There are all kinds of vehicles and modes of transportation that you can take advantage of that are not only practical but fun too. Here are just a few variations for your to consider.
Use a limo service
Do you have a special night out planned for while you’re away? Maybe you’re away with a big group of friends on a party holiday, and there’s a particular club you’re all looking forward to. Perhaps you’re on a trip with your partner, and you want to plan something special for your anniversary, Valentines Day, their birthday or the night you’re going to propose! You might have booked a show, night at the theatre or other occasion for the family and arriving in a limo would be the icing on the cake. If you just want a super luxurious getaway, you could have one pick you up from the airport- companies like Sabra Limo Service. A nice way to get to your hotel after a long flight, it certainly beats a crowded bus! There will be limousine companies dotted around in most destinations, so have a look ahead of time and get it booked up if it’s something you want to add to your trip.
Hire a cool car
Planning on going on a road trip, or doing some driving while you’re away? Maybe you want to drive over the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco or defeat Route 66. You might want to take a drive through the stunning French countryside, or drive the Causeway Coastal Route in Northern Ireland. Whatever you have in mind, if you’re going to be on the roads why not do so in style? You can hire a car of your choice, it could be a luxury model that you’ve always wanted to own or a rugged 4×4. It could be a muscle car, a supercar or whatever you fancy. Have a think about the kind of route and what would best suit the journey you’ll be doing. Either way, finding a stylish way to get around can add comfort and luxury to your getaway.
Take a ride in a helicopter
A ride in a helicopter can enable you to see breathtaking views and is an all-round thrilling experience. You could see the New York skyline from above, or see the Las Vegas strip all lit up from the air. You could fly over London taking in iconic sights, or see the stunning scenery of beautiful England. Once you’ve decided where you’ll be visiting, do some research and find out if there are helicopter trips nearby. Be sure to book ahead as these kinds of things are popular and in high demand, and it’s no wonder as they can allow you to make memories that last a lifetime. If you want to add some glamour, excitement and something a little different to your trip then this is a really good way to go about it. There are often limitations, for example children under four years old usually can’t fly and anyone under sixteen must be accompanied by an adult. There are often weight restrictions too, so be sure to read the fine print before you book.
Charter a yacht
Is there anything nicer than the wind in your hair and clear blue seas all around on a gorgeous sunny day? Getting out onto a yacht can be relaxing if you want it to be, or it could be an opportunity to throw a party! You could sit on the deck and sip a drink, or you could watch wildlife. You could charter a yacht yourself, or hire one with a driver and complete with staff if you just want to lie back and enjoy the luxury. Many come with cleaners, a chef and more. If you’re visiting a scenic, coastal location then you shouldn’t find it difficult to locate a company that offers everything you want. If you’re staying in a city by the sea, a yacht can give you incredible views from the water at night when everything is all lit up.
Book a cruise
Cruises fell out of fashion for a while. They were seen as something more for an older generation, however these days they’re well and truly back. The release of modern, beautiful cruise ships such as Quantum of the Seas means cruising is appealing to a younger market again. They’re great for couples and families, but really suit just about any kind of holidaymaker. You have everything you need all in one place right on the boat, and also the benefit of being able to visit lots of places on one trip. Cruise ships have shops, restaurants, things to do, areas to sit and sight see and so much more- making it a far nicer way to travel than on a cramped plane! When you stop at each location you can explore the place and see a new part of the world. It’s a wonderful way to see the world, and possibly the best form of transport!
Add something a extra special to your next break by considering one of the above, they make a great way to get around as well as allowing you to experience some true luxury! They’re not budget options, but if you’re planning something spectacular they’ll certainly make an impression.
