Planning A Longer Stay For Your Next Vacation

Are you interested in staying longer when you next go on vacation? If so, then there are a few different steps that you will need to take.

It’s important to understand that right now a longer stay might not be possible due to COVID but this could change rapidly in the not too distant future. 

Get Your Home Ready

Regardless of whether you own or rent or own your home, it’s important to prepare it if you’re going away for quite a long time. For instance, you need to think about elements of security. Your home is more exposed if you are going to be traveling for quite some time. You might even want to think about setting up a CCTV system.

The right CCTV will allow you to monitor it remotely even when you are halfway across the world. This isn’t the only way that you can keep your home safe. You can speak to your neighbours too.

They can check in on your home or they can think about parking a car on the driveway to ensure that it looks like someone is still living there. 

Make It Legal

Legal documentsThere is a little more to do to ensure that you are traveling legally when you are planning to go on a longer vacation. For instance, you need to think about getting the right visa.

Visas are available for most countries that will allow you to stay for at least a few months. However, you will need to make sure that you speak to an IAS immigration lawyer or use a similar service.

That way you will be able to guarantee that everything is handled above the table before you fly out. The last thing you want to find is that you get there and can’t enter the country. 

Think About Expense

You will also need to consider how you are going to be able to afford this longer trip. It’s likely that you will need to think about working while you are on vacation.

If you’re interested in this possibility then we recommend that you look at seasonal jobs. Depending on where you are going, certain places will always be understaffed during the winter and summer months. Alternatively, you can choose to spend a little more time saving for your next vacation. 


AccommodationLastly, you should think about where you’re going to stay on a longer vacation. A hotel isn’t financially viable for this type of trip. Instead, you should consider trying a hostel or perhaps even renting an apartment.

With the right apartment, you’ll have the flexibility you need with the extra space and a cost-friendly price. 

We hope this helps you understand everything you need to know to prepare for a longer vacation. If you take the right steps here, you can guarantee that your travel plans will be approved and you won’t face any roadblocks along the way.

You can also guarantee that you don’t end up in a situation where there is a nightmare waiting for you when you return home.
