With our busy lives and limited vacation days from work, a week-long break is sometimes all we can fit in. Seven days may not seem like enough time to fully switch off and enjoy a complete change of scene, however, a week is actually a great length of trip. Follow our planning tips to get the most out of your next week-long vacation.

Pick a Doable Destination

Firstly, pick a destination that’s not too far away (max three to four hour flight). That way, it won’t take precious days to recover from jet lag. Secondly, choose somewhere that’s not too overwhelming. You’re not going to be able to see it all. A city break with the possibility of day trips to a couple of other places is ideal.

Stay in MAX Two Places

You don’t want to spend the week schlepping your luggage around. Plus, it’s nice for a hotel or Airbnb to start feeling like home before you have to pack up and leave again. That’s we recommend staying in a maximum of two places on your week-long trip.

Make Time to Relax

With only seven days, it can be tempting to pack in a different activity every hour to make the most of your time. However, vacations are all about RELAXING. Make sure you leave time for a leisurely stroll and a pastry, a day at the beach, or simply time to curl up in a café with your book.
