How to Add Glamour to Your Travel Plans

Special Occasion Looming?

If you have a special occasion on the horizon, perhaps a honeymoon, birthday, wedding anniversary, or a celebration of some kind, you might have considered heading to a new destination as the backdrop to your special day. This is common – the overwhelming majority of honeymoons are spent in idyllic countries, and birthdays are more and more becoming a good excuse to head off on holiday! City breaks are the easy way to whisk yourself and your significant other away for an anniversary celebration, and for any other special day too.

Of course, travel costs money, especially luxury travel, but if it’s a truly special occasion then it’s worth splashing the cash a little. If you’re stuck for ideas on how to add a little extra pizzazz to your special travel day, or days, then here are a few ideas.

Hire a limo

Limos are synonymous with special days, but also with celebrities and VIP service. You can easily hire a limo for the day, or even for a few hours. Why not arrange to be picked up at the airport by a limo and transported in style to your hotel? Alternatively, you could hire a limo to show you the main sights.

Upgrade Your Hotel

Most large hotels, especially in cities, have suites you can easily upgrade to, so why not look into your options? You could try and blag yourself an upgrade, which will certainly cut costs! Personal butlers, room service, larger rooms, even in-suite Jacuzzis, these are all possible perks to your hotel stay.

Fly Business Class

If you are heading away on a long haul or even medium haul flight then business class could be an option for you. The perks are quite literally endless, and this will start your break in a stylish and comfortable manner, rather than perhaps cramped and uncomfortable, if you are heading away economy for a longer amount of time.

Michelin Star Restaurants

Whilst ‘fancy food’ is not for everyone, trying a top restaurant should be done at least once. Most large cities are packed with top class eateries, and if you can find a Michelin star establishment, be sure to book your table well ahead of time.

VIP Your Experiences

Most attractions allow for an upgrade, for instance, the London Eye has a range of special packages on offer, which allow you to add an extra special something to your experience. Zoos the world over have ‘keeper for the day’ packages, and you will find that basically any large scale attraction or experience allows for a VIP theme – simply do your research ahead of time.

These are just a few ways you can add extra sparkle to an occasion, leaving you with memories that will stay with you for a long time to come.
