Do you normally have 2 days off in a row? Maybe you have Saturdays and Sundays off. Maybe you have Tuesday and Friday off from work. Maximize those days in your planning for a longer trip. Many times the transportation to your destination is the most expensive part of the vacation. Why not lower the cost per day by going on a longer trip.

#2 Paid Holidays

Planning vacations around holidays that your work already pays you for and you get off of work for is another great advantage to lengthen your adventure. If you have Independence Day Thursday, July 4th, 2019 off and you have Saturdays and Sundays off, then maximize your time off by starting on Saturday, June 29th and returning Sunday, July 7th. That is a 9-day vacation with using 4 vacation days.

#3 Family and Friends

  1. Awesome reminders and great tips. Would love to hear ideas of fun things to do and see in Arizona . As always I love the pictures.

  2. Great ideas! We will be visiting St. Louis and Oregon (for weddings), and then going to New Mexico and Texas to Big Bend National Park, White Sands National Monument, and Carlsbad Caverns. Can’t wait!

  3. I use EVERY vacation day – and I always have a trip planned. I find that I don’t mind a vacation ending if I know there is another one on the schedule.

  4. RVing full-time, we don’t plan much. We plan big locations, but the in-between is spur of the moment. We definitely did more planning of our vacations when we were stationary.

  5. I’m a little behind but working on planning my vacations for the year. So far we have a trip to southern Arizona, a trip to Seattle, a trip to Indiana, and possibly a trip to Michigan on the calendar.our International trip is not planned yet. So many destinations I want to visit it is hard to narrow it down.

  6. It is so hard lately to plan for just our two days off from the week. We need to start planning out our 2019 as a month has already passed us by. Great way to break down the planning.

  7. These are great tips! We are lucky enough that my husband owns his own business so he has a ton of flexibility but before that when he worked for someone else, it was rough to find the time.

  8. I love your suggestions for using the most of your vacation days. I’m travel obsessed so I don’t have a problem with using my vacation. I have a problem of not having enough time to get to all the places I want to go!

  9. I am the master of scheduling my vacations in a way that allows me as many days off as possible while using as few vacation days as possible! Not only do I want longer vacations, but I want to take more of them!

  10. Found that interesting of the statistics of those who don’t take vacation time off. Planners vs. non-planners.
