Plan Trip For Team At Work

Pick a Place With Options for Outdoor Activities

Go to a place that allows your team to take part in group activities like adventure sports or a cricket match on the beach. These are great team bonding exercises and they will help your team coordinate with each other outside the compulsion of an office. You can even arrange a team lunch so that everyone eats and chills out together. However, ensure that you make these arrangements in advance so that there’s no last minute cancellations or trouble.

Go Sightseeing Together

There’s nothing like exploring a place with your colleagues and creating memories that will stay with you for a lifetime. If you are going to place that is best explored on your own, they all of you can rent bikes and go around the town. This way, you will be on your own but you will also be a part of the team.

Arrange a Bonfire Night

A team outing without a bonfire and some singing and dancing is incomplete. You can tell your hotel authorities to arrange one such bonfire night for your team so that all of you can sit around it and chit chat. If you know someone who can play a guitar or sing, ask them to show their talent. This way, your whole team will be able to connect with and know each other better.

Focused on Event Transportation

Be Prepared for Changes

As anticipated, changes will take place sometime during your event. Just like all aspects of event planning, you need to get prepared for obstacles along the way. Make sure you have a backup plan to move your guests from one point to another.

The road near your venue may be closed, or your driver might suddenly become sick. These kinds of circumstances that can disrupt your plans are never-ending, but the key to all these challenges is to be ready. Refrain from panicking and use the backup options that are accessible.

Always be there for your Guests

It can be stressful to transport large groups of attendees, and sometimes, it is difficult to maintain good customer service. However, you should always keep your cool in spite of these demanding situations, and mingle with your guests in the best possible way.

Make it your priority to let every person have an amazing experience. When you make an extra effort to welcome a guest and make him/her feel appreciated, they can often forget about a small mistake in your transportation and event in general.

Always Follow Up

When working with vendors, follow up is the way things are done, but in transportation, your providers should not forget when and where they are supposed to provide service to your group.

It is crucial to follow up with your transportation vendors just before the start of the event, and give them a 30-minute or an hour notice. In case anything goes wrong or changes within that short time, at least it could give you an opportunity, as planner, to carry out your backup option.

Eco Friendly Transport Vacation

1. Getting There

Planes, trains, and automobiles… Of these, planes are the worst, but if you fly on an airline that has taken measures to reduce their carbon footprint by eliminating excess waste and recycling as much as possible, it will be better. Southwest is an airline you might want to consider which has done a lot to reduce their carbon footprint.

When it comes to trains, this really isn’t a bad way to travel and it’s not terrible on the environment. Plus it’s a very scenic way to travel. If you are making a road trip and are driving, then consider renting a hybrid vehicle if you don’t own one.

2. Hotels

Look for hotels that use green programs. Also check the hotel’s location and make sure there is plenty of public transportation nearby that you can use to get to where you need to go. Once in your hotel, notify them that you don’t need new towels every day. Turn lights off when you leave the room and turn the thermostat up or down when you’re not in the room to use less electricity.

3. Travel When You’re There

Even though you checked your hotel to see that it has public transportation, also consider finding other ways to travel. Can you walk to many places instead of needing to be driven there? How about renting a bicycle for the week and traveling by bike instead? Finding alternative ways to get to destinations and then using nature as much as possible will really help you maintain your eco-friendly transportation while on your vacation.

4. Leave It Cleaner Than When You Got There

While this isn’t about transportation, it’s always just good practice to pick up trash when you see it. It can help balance out your carbon footprint if you had trouble finding the most eco-friendly ways of transport.

Info of Budget Travel Guide

1. Find the Most Affordable Hostel

Hostels are relatively cheaper than hotels. Though structurally smaller and more cramped, they offer the same amenities and, at times, the same basic travel comforts as many hotels. If you are looking for free Wi-Fi connection, free breakfast and free airport transfers, most hostels offer these services, too. Others offer free laundry, staff-sponsored parties and a common room where guests can mingle and get to know each other.

The only things you have to put up with are space and, in certain hostels, hygiene. The trick is to do your research beforehand. Read reviews to know what previous guests think. You will have a clear idea of which hostels to consider and which ones to avoid. Lastly, be on the lookout for promos. Hostels occasionally offer discounts and other perks. A dormitory-type may be a lot cheaper, but if you want a cleaner and less topsy-turvy situation (particularly if you are female), then go for an all-girls dormitory. These rooms are usually less crowded and are more comfortable.

2. Walk More

Travelling on a budget means preparing to give up taxis or private cars. What most comfort travellers do not understand, however, is that they are actually spending more for transportation expenses than they are for food, lodging or souvenirs. Some taxi drivers take advantage of tourists, driving them in circles so that they will be forced to pay more than what is necessary. On one hand, if you use your feet more, not only will you be able to test and improve your sense of direction, you can also see and experience interesting spots inaccessible through regular transportation. If you are not sure where to go, then read through blogs, brochures or local magazines. They can serve as your portable travel guide.

3. Adopt a Flexible Itinerary

The worst that you can do to yourself while travelling is to be a stickler for rules. It is important to have an itinerary to keep things in order, but it is much more important to enjoy your trip and have a blast. Give a little room for unexpected adventures. Do not set your return date if you think you need more time to explore a place. Your itinerary may look great, but first-hand suggestions from locals and backpackers are the stuff that make travelling more exciting. Travel guide books and magazines may not have an inkling about these suggested spots, which are usually underrated, less crowded and far more beautiful than many tourist spots made famous by media mileage.
