4 Reasons to Plan Your Winter Horse Riding Holiday Today
There is a lot that goes into making your trip a pleasant and safe one, so if you’re considering taking one of Zara’s horse riding holidays this winter, it’s a good idea to get started right away. Here’s a quick look at why booking early is important, as well as some of the things you’ll need to do before your trip.
Horse riding holidays in some of the top destinations book well in advance. For example, the Masai Mara in Kenya, so if you choose to go on Tristan’s Masai Mara safari for this purpose, you’ll want to book a full year in advance. Other destinations have more leeway, but you should still book several months in advance if you want to be sure you’ll have a spot on the trip and receive the accommodations of your choosing.
Without a doubt, a lot of planning goes into horse riding holidays. You’ll need to schedule time off work, arrange care for animals at home, make arrangements for your children if they won’t be accompanying you, and much more. You may also need to have a check-up with your physician to be able to travel. This is an absolute must if you have a medical condition, are travelling to a remote location, or are going on an especially challenging tour.
Most people stay up-to-date on the recommended vaccinations for their country, but each region has unique risks. For example, you may not be able to travel to parts of South America and Africa if you cannot prove you have had a Yellow Fever vaccination. Depending on where your intended destination is, where you’re coming from, and what your medical history entails, certain vaccines may be recommended or even necessary. If you’re in the UK, you can check out the general guidelines on the Travel Immunisations page of the NHS website. Ireland’s HSE has a similar dedicated page.
It’s no secret that airlines increase their rates all the time. They use sophisticated algorithms to try and maximise what they earn on each flight. Though flight prices will fluctuate quite a bit from the moment a seat is made available until the flight leaves, the best time to get seats is early- before demand has a chance to drive up the costs.
