Here in Member Services, one of the many things that we help our members with is planning vacations. I’ve been helping plan some really cool ones lately, including my own. If you haven’t read about it already, you can read about it here on the blog!
Here are some tips on how to go about planning your own vacation using your membership! And remember, we’re here to help you if you have any questions along the way
1. Decide where you would like to go.
I decided that for my first vacation ever that I would go to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I have been overseas before but I had n
ever been to Mexico before and I had heard that Puerto Vallarta was beautiful. I did some research and it is a safe, friendly, and accommodating place to be in Mexico. If you’re dreaming of going overseas like Andrea is in the picture, you’ll want to make sure you have enough time to get or renew a passport. This can take a couple of months sometimes so make sure to start planning early!
2. Decide when you’d like to go.
For me, the best time to take time off is when the parks are closed so I knew that my best window for securing time off would be during November-April. Your dates may vary but it is best to be flexible. Keep in mind that most condos check in on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday and that they run for a week. It’s best to have a few weeks in mind that you’d be available to go.
I’ve spent the past year here in the Member Services department helping countless members research and plan their vacations all over the world. I love helping them find great deals in great places so I was very excited when my boss suggested that I take a vacation of my own. Using Hopaway Holiday, the condo portion of Coast to Coast, I was able to take a fabulous vacation to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in early November of this year.
I started planning out my vacation nearly a year in advance. I had to think about where in the world I wanted to go. Did I want to go on a cruise or did I want to book a condo? Should I go somewhere warm or should I learn to ski in the snow? How many people did I want to take? These were just some of the things I had to consider before I could continue planning my vacation. I decided on Puerto Vallarta, Mexico because I speak the Spanish language and because upon doing some more research, I found that it was a safe, friendly, and inviting place to go in Mexico.
