It is common knowledge that most people are now opting for domestic travel rather than major COVID trips. This is because, faced with the risk of contagion, people prefer to stay close to home.
Glovalus has compiled a list of reasons why you should opt for domestic travel rather than major COVID trips. However, pandemic disease won’t be the only compelling reason we’ll give you. Ready?
You’ll save money
While the holiday period is the time of year when we spend the most, it may not always be the best time for you to go on a big trip. Some people finish their holidays dry, and regret having spent so much, even though they’ve enjoyed their holidays like children.
But what if we told you that you don’t need to go broke to have a full and total fun? Going on domestic trips as an alternative to the big COVID trips could be the solution you are looking for to save money and go to paradisiacal destinations.
Yes, we said paradise. On many occasions we don’t tend to value what we have in our own country and we think we need to go out to enjoy something different.
In fact, I will tell you more if you are one of those who love to spend, even if you find it hard to do so afterwards, you can spend as much as you want within Spain and save money on flights.
Domestic travel: you’ll be helping the environment
You probably don’t care about global pollution and the greenhouse effect, especially when you’re planning your holiday, but it can be a plus, can’t it? Travelling slowly in your own car, taking the train, bus or carpooling will not only save you money, but also help the environment survive longer.
Broaden your mind
People often think that their whole country is like the neighbourhood they live in, but that’s not exactly the case. Within the same country you can find places that suck and places of dreams, it all depends on where you go.
At Glovalus, you can explore your options and choose the one that suits you best. If we go one step further, we realise that within Spain there are even places that have their own dialect and customs. End of form
Alternatives to the big COVID trips: you will learn general culture
If you thought you knew your country, you will realise that this is not so. We tend to think we know everything about the place where we live from what we see on the news or from the pictures we see of other people, but the reality is that you need to spend some time in a place to know what it’s really like.
The way of speaking, the gestures, the day-to-day life and even the price at the supermarket can surprise you if you go with the predisposition to enjoy and discover a new world, even if it is the same country where you spend the rest of the year.
Besides, there are many things that are told that are not true, so don’t you think it’s time to discover them for yourself?
Being a tourist in your own country gives you a great advantage over others. Knowing the local way of doing things will help you avoid the typical tourist accidents where your bag is stolen or you get lost in the metro.
National travel: you’ll know how to answer for yourself
Although it’s impossible to know everything about every place in the country, living in the same place will help you answer questions that if you were in another country, you’d be racking your brains.
For example, you might want to find the best restaurant in the area. But of course, if you go to England and you don’t know English, you might find it difficult to ask the locals or look it up on the Internet.
You’ll understand the importance of knowing your own home.
Every travel lover will tell you the same thing. To know how to enjoy the pleasures of travelling to unfamiliar places, you must first savour what you have at your fingertips.
You will see the value of the little things and you will be happier.
Say goodbye to jetlag
If you travel within your own country you won’t have to spend a few bad days to adapt to the new time, unless you go to the Canary Islands, but don’t worry, you’ll get used to it quickly.
We are waiting for you at Glovalus.
