Not everyone travels in the same way, some like to stay busy and explore the sights while others do their best to never leave the poolside. If you can identify what type of traveller you are we can help find you the perfect getaway. Below we’ve gathered a few of our favourite types of travellers matched with the best suited holiday.
(EARLY RETIREES NOW INDEFINITELY ENJOYING SIGHTSEEING)
If you’re enjoying an early retirement but can’t stand the thought of sitting at home all day and fixing the garden, it’s likely you’ll be looking to hit the skies for as long as possible. Plan big for those month-long adventures abroad and savour as many destinations as you can muster. No doubt 2020 got your feet itching to get away so why not plan for a few months in New Zealand? Hire a car and meet the locals, there’s no limit if incredible sights to see and definitely no rush to come home.
(GLOBETROTTING OVERLAND, NOW SPENDING KIDS’ INHERITANCE)
This is your time to truly experience the destination and nowhere is more inviting than Tasmania! Everything is within reach, you can go from sipping fine wines to hikes through the National Parks within hours. The kids have already bought themselves a house so there’s no need to hold back on spending their inheritance, why not splurge on an all-inclusive stay at Saffire.
(RETIRED OLD LARRIKINS LIVING EASY AT ROAD STOPS)
For those that hate ‘following the leader’ style guided tours and love having the luxury of changing your plans to suit the weather, it’s time to hit the wide open Aussie roads. Think of the friends you’ll meet living it up just like you in a caravan park on the beach. Head north in the southern winter and meet the team at El Questro who will show you a side to Australia you’ve not yet experienced.
(FIT LUCKY OLD AUSSIES TRAVELLING IN EVERY SHIP)
What better way to travel than by ship! Check in, unpack and enjoy the pool decks as you float between destinations. 2020 shouldn’t stop you from getting back to the high seas and we can find you a boat to get there. For something a bit different why not join The Eco Abrolhos, a 32m catamaran, that is currently operating cruises from Geraldton. You can spend your days snorkelling secluded bays and visiting untouched beaches, whilst enjoying the freshest seafood and meeting the friendly local wildlife who call the Abrolhos Islands home.
(NANAS ON NEW ADVENTURES)
Get the girls together and take off, just like you had always planned. You don’t have to go far just as long as you can’t hear the grumbling husbands anymore. Enjoy a wine-weekend in the Adelaide Hills before touring the beautiful Kangaroo Island.
(SCHOOL HOLIDAYS AND CAN’T KEEP LITTLE-ONES ENGAGED)
When the kids are in school, there’s such a limited, high-demand window for the family to travel and even less time available to plan it. Take the stress out of holiday planning and keep it simple. A few nights at a city resort like Crown Towers is sure to keep every happy and enjoying the time together. Book with TTFN and we’ll find the best deal with hotel credit and bonus amenities. Some say a ‘staycation’ is silly but it is the best way for a quick getaway if you find the right resort.
(HUSBANDS UNABLE to SORT HOLIDAY IN TIME)
They always say, “sounds like a good idea” but when it comes to booking it in, there is alway an excuse, not enough notice or work is just too busy. Solution: Leave them behind! Instead gather your girl friends for a wine escape or a spa getaway weekend. Coming up is a great time to explore Orange, NSW during the F.O.O.D. Week in early April.
(WIFE’S AWAY NOW NEED A SHIPMATE )
She thinks she’s won by taking a girls weekend but really, you’d already promised the lads a fishing weekend. It’s a win-win all round. Rather than a last minute camping trip, how about you tell us how much time you’ve got and we’ll tee up the ultimate fishing charter or custom golf tour.
(HAVE A DESERVED IDYLLIC TIME OUT)
We’ve all had a lot of family time this past year, and as much as you love them, you could all do with a little break. Leave the kids at Gran’s and sneak out for a quiet, well-deserved, parents only break. We love Sal Salis, an idyllic escape from the daily grind and the perfect opportunity to explore Western Australia’s magnificent Ningaloo Reef.
(HIPPIES ENJOYING REVISITING BACKPACKER SPOTS)
Remember that time you travelled to Thailand when you were 20 for the yoga retreat and sharing in a hostel bunk room? Well now it’s your chance to reconnect with your younger self but in much more comfort and style. While you may not be able to explore the beyond and exotic, why not restore and detox the mind and body at Gaia Retreat in Byron’s Hinterland.
