Travelling to your holiday destination, or anywhere for that matter, can be just as exciting as the holiday itself. Honestly, the traveling part can be so much fun. It’s the perfect opportunity to flex the VIP lifestyle and live it up. Gone are the days where you travel in your sweats and scrape your hair off your face. It’s all about how you travel that will get everyone talking. So I thought I would share with you some trade secrets for traveling in style. To travel like a VIP is very simple to achieve. Here are all the secrets you need to know.
Who say’s anything about traveling light
Traveling light is a thing of the past. Yes, I appreciate, that some airlines have allowances but come on? If you want to pack that extra outfit, I say go for it. You will only regret it when you get there. However, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t think about packing logically. Packing plenty of the wrong things is only going to give you a hefty bill when you arrive at the airport. My best advice would be to plan your holiday outfits as best you can. Then take a few alternatives to give yourself a choice. It all adds to the buildup and excitement of going away. You will love how organised you feel when you get there; that is for sure.
Think about what you are wearing to travel in
Your holiday begins the moment you wake up on the day you travel. There is no better feeling. Gone are the days that you travel in sweatpants and trainers. Don’t even get me started on the messy bun in your hair. Your traveling outfit and the way you look is just as important. You are beginning your holiday at that precise moment. So you may as well do it in the same style you plan to grace your holiday with. Of course, you still need to be practical. You may have a long plane journey ahead. So again thinking about what you wear is important. Skinny jeans, a flowing shirt, and a smart jacket will always be a winning combination in my eyes. If you can pop on a pair of killer heels, then you will rock the airport look.
Your luggage can be stylish too
Of course, you are thinking about what you are going to wear but what about your luggage? Not many of us invest in decent suitcases. Or when we do we keep hold of them for years until they rip and fall apart. If your luggage is looking a little tired or outdated then why not use it as the opportunity to change it? You can even get matching hand luggage making your whole appearance look like you are a VIP.
Accessories are everything
When traveling like a VIP, you will notice that accessories are everything. So get those shades out and rock them from the word go. You will be thankful to have them to hand when you land, and the sun is shining. I know some of you may not have the confidence to rock those sunnies indoors, but that doesn’t stop a VIP. Embrace your individuality and be different.
Think about the way you travel
How you travel is important. Traveling like a VIP doesn’t mean you can’t go all budget airlines on me, but you can travel the best you can at the most affordable to you. So if you are traveling budget-friendly then make sure you enjoy a glass of champers on your flight. If you are traveling with an airline that allows upgrades or in-flight perks then research these out and take advantage. Websites like Upgraded Points offer you the chance to maximise your travel. It’s worth looking into and considering all your options. After all, looking good is just part of it.
Do you suit hats? If so then rock one straight away. Most of us won’t be able to pack our hats in fear of them squashing or being damaged in our cases. So wear it with style as part of your airport outfit. A hat can get you noticed from afar, and give off the impression of a VIP. Rock the hat with your shades and you will be oozing celebrity status. Even on lemonade budgets.
Don’t be concerned with what others think
At the end of the day, only you matter to yourself. To your friends, family and loved ones. So don’t concern yourself with what others think. Some would say that people that stare or have distasteful things to say have nothing better in their lives. It can be down to jealousy, unfortunately. Do what’s right for you. Travel how you want to travel. A holiday for some of us is a well-earned break. You may have saved all year for these two weeks. It may even be a holiday of a lifetime. So you have every right to do and act how you want to. It’s your holiday.
Make sure you rest up during your travel
Travelling can take a lot out of us. So use the time wisely and rest up. It may have something to do with the air conditioning on a plane but your skin can look tired, and you can look exhausted. But when you travel, this is possibly the one time you have just to sit and do nothing for a period of time. We don’t get this kind of opportunity in our daily routines of life. So be sensible and use the time. Relax, enjoy a drink, read a magazine. Rest up for the amazing holiday you have planned.

Smiling will get you everywhere
Don’t forget to smile. You may think that would be an easy thing to do, but you will be surprised. Travelling can be stressful. Especially if you have a few different flights to catch or connections to make. The best thing to do is to be as organised as possible before you are due to travel. This means keeping documents and passports in a safe area of your bag. Easily accessible for those moments you need them. It means packing ahead and making sure you have everything you need. Not giving yourself any reason to feel nervous or stressed. If you prepare, then you have no reason but to enjoy your traveling experience. You are off on an adventure, why wouldn’t you be smiling about it? Of course, you are looking fabulous doing it.
Enjoy the moment
Finally, make sure you enjoy the traveling experience. Like previously mentioned there aren’t many opportunities in life where we get the chance just to sit still and enjoy the quiet. When does that ever happen? So savor the moment. Enjoy the experience. If you want to get to the airport early to enjoy the shopping, so you don’t feel rushed, then do it. If you want to sit in the airport lounge and people watch, then go ahead. The traveling part is still very much part of your overall holiday experience. It is there to be enjoyed. So enjoy it.
I hope my stylish secrets help you to travel like a VIP in the future. Remember, being organised is the key to looking and feeling fabulous. That, and just enjoying yourself. It’s all about being happy and having fun. Enjoy your holiday.
