The Jordan Insurance Group, MD, VacationWhile work is always important, the old saying that "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" is something that you should always keep in mind. It's always important to take a breather every now and again, even if it's only for a few days. Studies have shown that a few well-placed vacation days can give both you and the employees where you work a motivational boost that can last months. Summer vacations in particular are a great, fun way to mark the halfway point of the year in style. Before you set out to plan a vacation this summer, there are always a few key things to keep in mind. You should always start planning that great summer getaway as early in the year as you possibly can. Once you've decided that both you and the family are going to get away, pick a date and start planning. Doing so will be beneficial for a number of different reasons. For starters, rates on airfare and hotels are traditionally cheaper during the cold winter months of the year than they are during the summer. You'll pay a lot less money for air travel (if necessary) and on a nice hotel if you book during the winter than you will if you wait until the last minute and book right before you go. Additionally, many hotels, airlines and travel brokerage firms offer a variety of different promotions and specials during the winter that you can use all year round, even if you aren't flying until weeks or even months into the future. If you start planning early you'll get the best rates and you'll also have the largest amount of options with regards to where to stay and what types of activities you can engage in. Certain areas (like Martha's Vineyard, for example) book up well in advance of the summer season. If you wait until summer to start preparing your vacation plans, you might find out that you don't have as many options as you thought. Planning a vacation for the summer is also a great way to clear your head when you need it the most. If you went on a vacation right at the beginning of the year, you'd have a longer period of time to wait before the next getaway rolled around. Content provided by Transformer Marketing.
