I, just like most moms, have a very busy life. Things can get crazy and I easily start to feel overwhelmed with all of the details. Even when planning a vacation, some fun time away, I can find the process takes so much of my time that the thought of selecting a destination, finding and booking flights, arranging transport to and from the airport, investigating meals and excursions and activities can be too much to add to my list of things to do. I don’t want to stress out when I am trying to find a way to relax! What I really, REALLY need is a one stop shop, somewhere I can go and get it all done at one time. Then I can move on and back to my busy life until it is time to hop on that plane and settle into my trip.
When I was approached by Transat Holidays about an upcoming trip and writing gig I thought it would be a chance to put this theory to the test. They wanted me to experience a Transat Holidays vacation and blog about it. The assignment was to write from pre-trip all the way through and experience first hand the process of working with this full service travel provider. I was curious to know more about the process and its potential benefits. Plus, I was thrilled to get to experience a trip to the Mayan Riviera.
Azul Fives. I’ve never seen an infinity pool!
So, on Sunday my family and I are off to the Azul Fives Hotel in Mexico through Transat Holidays. So far the planning has been a breeze. The vacation is sold as a package deal so we didn’t have to worry about much. Flight times and costs as well as airport transfers are included. Plus, we received a package from the Air Transat Kids Club for my daughter that included snack vouchers for the flight, priority check-in at the airport and other benefits I will be sure to explore as our trip gets underway.
Stay tuned over the next week to learn more about our experience with Transat Holidays and our adventures in the Mayan Riviera!
Do you find planning a vacation overwhelming? I would love to hear about your experiences.
