Travelling the Globe Is Easy If You Plan

When you are deciding your annual vacation or a quick getaway make sure you plan down to the very details. One hitch in your plan means hours of waiting, making sudden travel changes and reworking your entire schedule and travel arrangements. Many times when you do not plan, your trip becomes boring, longer than expected and lacks fun. Make sure you opt for a good travel advisor or agent who can give you all the details of the city you choose, special places of importance and recommended places to visit. Also get a list of must see monuments, shops and streets. If you are still not sure on where to go, ask them for the world’s best tourist places. Some sought after places are India, Sweden, France, Australia and Morocco. You can plan multiple trips as well. Take a trip to sea beaches and spend time waking up to the sunrise or travel to the mountains and river beds.

Planning your trip

Always seek the help of a trip advisor. You will find plenty of willing online agents who can help you plan your trip to any destination in the world. Try and seek someone who has previous experience and good reviews. A world travel guide will be able to mark the places you can visit and draw up a custom itinerary for you. This way you do not have to do anything you are not interested in. Make sure you disclose the purpose of your visit. A get-away means staying in hotels and other types of accommodation. Ensure you have confirmed travel and hotel bookings before you leave the country. If you are looking for a multiple country trip, ask your world travel guide for possible locations you can spend time at. If you like busy, try places like china, India and Thailand. These exotic places are exhilarating.

Activities

Going to a new country means trying out new places to eat, shop and visit. Besides getting a list of places, allow your guide to give you some tips on travel, handling your luggage and special places to see. When shopping, look for roadside bazaars and local markets to get the best deals. Many of the world’s best tourist places have incredible shopping destinations and have a variety of specialties only available in that city. The Arab countries are famous for their Persian rugs, India for handicrafts while Italy has plenty of luxury goods, shoes and crafts.

Booking

Instead of running back and forth to a travel agent, check out online world travel guides to help you with your bookings. All you need to do is provide your destination, dates of travel, number of people in the party and your entire budget. This will help your travel guide provide the perfect vacation for you at your budget. Once they provide you with your options, you can take the best possible pick. When booking, if you wish, you can make it a theme holiday like romantic or beach inspired.

Travel the World’s Best Destinations

The top places for travel around the world used to be fairly standard. In fact, most people couldn’t afford to travel much, if at all. If traveling was possible, it was usually done in a car or by train or bus. Now that air travel is so much less expensive, several destinations that one may not even think of are becoming more and more popular for travelers and vacationers all over the world. The following countries are some of the top places for travel in the past year, and some might surprise you!

South Africa

The beauty of South Africa is it’s authenticity. Not only do you have several modern cities to tour and fine cuisine to taste, but you also have the beauty of the natural wildlife, including animals you won’t see any other place in the world. There is a tremendous warmth from the local people and the culture is fascinating.

Argentina

Travelers love Argentina for all sorts of reasons. The sub-tropical climate makes it a wonderful, beautiful place to get away, and the waterfalls are copious and breath taking. On the other hand, Argentina has beautiful snow packed mountains if you like to ski. Buenos Aires is one of the most beautiful cities in the world with amazing night life and a strong beating heart.

Philippines

Visiting the Philippines is a favorite experience by many due to the friendliness of the local people and the beauty of the ocean. The local people are known to invite tourists into their homes and voluntarily give information about the culture. The beach is a very popular destination for surfers and those who love water sports.

Czech Republic

Known for it’s stunning architecture and delicious foods, the Czech Republic is located in the heart of Europe. Several people visit the country by itself, but it’s a favorite for those who want to visit several other European destinations. The country has over 2000 Chateaus, more than any other country in the world per square kilometre!

Tahiti

This may sound like a more common favorite destination, but many say that Tahiti is the most beautiful country in the world. The colors, the beaches, the serenity give it top rating and it’s one of the top ‘wished for’ places to visit in a lifetime.

Zambia

If you’re visiting South Africa, you should definitely take the time to visit Zambia, a beautiful neighbor which is home to one of the seven wonders of the world, Victoria Falls. Filled with peaceful, friendly people, Zambia is a cultural experience many enjoy.

India

Vibrant and culturally overwhelming, India is one of the best places to go to experience fine culture, wonderful cuisine, and absolute beauty. The people of India are extremely friendly and inviting, and their architecture is amazing. Of course, one of the most amazing things to see is a beautiful live tiger in the wild. A proud, vivacious country, India is a traveler’s gem.

Indonesia

Indonesia is a popular place for tourist who visit New Zealand and Australia. It’s comprised of over 60,000 beautiful islands to surf, swim and relax.

Malta

Not many places are more beautiful than a country in the middle of the Mediterranean. With architecture older than the Egyptian pyramids, Malta is a beautiful destination which traveler’s never forget.

Croatia

People don’t think of Croatia as a tourist destination but it’s becoming more and more popular. A small country with huge diversity, Croatia is like Europe and the Mediterranean combined. Great food, great wine, great people- it’s truly a beautiful place to visit.

Although some of the travel destinations above might not seem like typical places to visit for a vacation, each of them are precious places that travelers from all over the world cherish and love. Each should be enjoyed and experienced by anyone who wants to see the world.

Europe Travel Review

The reason to travel to Europe may be different for each traveler, but a few of the common reasons are: Cultural Opportunities: For those interested in museums, arts, history, music or theater Europe travel offers nearly endless opportunity for cultural activity. From London to Paris to Rome to Amsterdam travelers can enjoy some of the most exciting cultural opportunities the world has to offer.

Landmarks:

People like to visit and associate themselves with something (or someone) famous. Europe travel destinations are rich in famous landmarks. Some of the most well known landmarks of the world, from Big Ben, to the Eiffel Tower, to the Coliseum are located in Europe.

Roots:

People like to visit the countries of their ancestors. Ancient European were wanderers who put up stakes in destinations around the world. Their descendants are now traveling to Europe to return to their roots and see the places their forefathers once called home.

Variety:

Where else can you enjoy such a diversity of culture, climate and geography over such a small distance A traveler to the US will notice relatively small changes when traveling from L A to New York City, a flight of approximately six hours. Language is the same, food is similar, and culture is not remarkably different. However, a two hour flight from Zurich, Switzerland to Athens, Greece , will reward the traveler with an enormous difference that is immediately obvious. Everything from language, food to lifestyle is completely and utterly different. Distances in Europe are relatively small and cultural variety is large. This gives the traveler to Europe the opportunity of easily enjoying a diverse range of cultures and lifestyles by making a relatively low investment of time and money.

Transportation:

There is no place more convenient for a traveler, than Europe Transportation is arguably the best in the world. Europe is well known for its remarkable train system and train passes which offer travelers the opportunity for international travel at very affordable rates. With more and more discount airlines available, Europe travel is becoming less and less expensive. Once you arrive in a major city, there is usually a local metro or streetcar system to take you anywhere you want to go. The ease, comfort and economy makes Europe travel very attractive and convenient.

Health:

When traveling in some regions of the world, travelers must consider if there are any local illnesses that they may be exposed to, if vaccines maybe required and if they fall ill, will they receive proper medical treatment. Most European destinations have excellent water supplies, low rates of infectious diseases and some of the best healthcare systems in the world.

Safety:

Travelers are always easy prey for criminals. However in most European countries your hotel room is not only safe from burglary due to security but is also equipped with a safe European police departments are usually efficient and violent crime is generally lower than in many other areas. But one should always remember when exploring new destination never loose sight of your money and documents.

When is the best time to travel Europe:

May, June, September, and October: These are the perfect months to enjoy southern Europe. Greece, Turkey, Spain and Italy are the best destinations in these periods. The climate at this time is usually ideal and the crowds are relatively thin. International flights are usually less expensive than the peak fares of summer. In the peak travel months of July and August, these destinations may be too hot, too crowded and too expensive for many travelers. July, August: This is the best time to visit Northern, Central and Eastern Europe and go to such countries as Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands, Czech Republic. However, this period offers the best climate conditions and many of the locals will be on holiday in southern Europe during this period November to March: Europe is cold during these months. While you may find travel bargains at this time, you may spend a lot of your travel time indoors. The only exception to this is the Canary Islands. Although part of Spain, the Canary Islands are located off the coast of Africa, and enjoy moderate climate year-round. With all of the attention paid to destinations like London and Paris, few people really put much thought into Eastern Europe travel when they are making their vacation plans.

Besides the well-known sites in the Czech Republic and Greece, Poland and Lithuania also offer exciting possibilities. One of the great thing about Eastern Europe travel is that you don’t have to choose one destination exclusively. In general, the public transportation is good enough and cheap enough in that part of the world that you can get from one country to another with relative ease. Basically, Eastern Europe travel offers you the luxury of exploring a whole region rather than settling on one single country. If, however, you are going on a first Eastern Europe travel trip, you should be prepared for culture shock Customs are still familiar enough to not be totally alienating, however, things are still noticeably different there. The fact that it is so affordable, however, more than makes up for this. If you can find cheap airfare to Eastern Europe, You can take your trip for almost nothing. Travel Is Interesting and Entertaining. It’s not a zoo where you look into the cages. Meld with the European to enjoy your travels.

You don’t have to visit museums if you would rather go on a balloon flight or go to a bull fight or sit at a cafe and meet someone new. As an example, one of the most highly recommended items in all of the popular travel guidebooks, TV travel shows, and guided tours is the Amsterdam Canals Boat Excursion. I took this ride and I have a different opinion. You’re stuffed into this long boat with a curved plexiglass roof, you and 80 other tourists. In four languages, over a miserable speaker system, you listen to a tape recording of stupendous facts and statistics about the places you are floating by. Good luck ever finding these places again as you walk around. I was not the only one bored on board. On top of that, it seemed that the boat was going to be swamped by a huge freighter when it got out in the middle of the harbor. What in Amsterdam name were we doing out in the harbor ? On the other hand, one of the most fascinating exhibits in Europe is usually left out of the popular guidebooks. Sins of omission are far from the major problems with these books. Virtually every one I open has errors so stupid that the only possible explanation is that the author did not go to the place mentioned.

A New Era In Travel

First, I want to get right to the meat and potatoes and show you a very logical opportunity that just makes sense not matter how you slice it. Here are some important facts:

The travel industry is by far the largest industry in the world. It accounts for about 7 trillion dollars a year world wide and about 1.3 trillion in the US alone. In the US that calculates to about 2.4 million dollars a minute or 40 thousand dollars a second. The travel industry is growing 23% faster than the world economy and will continue historical growth for the next 18 to 20 years. This of course is because of that group of people born between 1946 and 19 64 known as the almighty baby boomers. This group has changed every industry they have ever touched and they are entering retirement at the rate of 1 person every 8 seconds for the next 18+ years. When people retire, they want to travel. That is why the industry is expected to double in the next decade. The industry size and growth capacity is enormous. If we took telecom, health and nutrition and financial services, all of which generate billions of dollars in the direct marketing industry, and you combine them, it wouldn’t come even close to the size of the travel industry. It is always a smart move to be positioned in front of a growth industry and there has never been anything of this magnitude in the entire history of American business.

Barry Diller, the owner of Comcast bought Expedia.com for 5.1 billion dollars. Some holding company that I am not familiar with recently bought Orbitz.com for 5.6 billion dollars and Donald Trump has invested I don’t know how many millions building his online travel company from scratch. To me, that is a clue. They know its coming and they want to be in front of it. But the beauty of this opportunity is that those companies can’t compete with us. We are going after the prize of being the largest internet travel company in the world and create 10,000 millionaires inside of 10 years. I know that might sound grandiose, but stay with me because once you understand our business model, it will be very clear as to why it is not only realistic but very probable.

Right now, about 82% of the US population already books their travel online. The travel agency community has shrunk by 200,000 + travel agencies in the last 10 years because everyone is adopting the internet as their travel agent. It’s convenient. That is why Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz, Priceline etc…have all be trying to brand themselves to grab a piece of the market as this transition occurs from brick and mortar travel agencies to click and order travel agencies. Not only do they want a piece of the existing market, more importantly they want to get in front of what is to come. Expedia.com for example is spending about 5 million dollars a week for marketing. About 80% of the revenue that comes in the door is being reinvested into their branding efforts. But, 20% of a whole lot is still a whole lot. It’s a great business model. But there is one problem; people are booking their travel with faceless corporations and there is no relationship in the equation anymore.

With YTB, you own a full service online travel agency with more extensive features than anyone else. From airline tickets, hotels, all inclusive vacation packages, cruises, golf tee times, Broadway show tickets, sporting events, ski passes, concert tickets, amusement park admissions, travelers insurance, buy foreign currency, just about anything travel and entertainment related and with every major travel provider in the world. We don’t sell something kind of like Carnival, Disney, Sandals, Frontier Airlines, Alamo etc…that is exactly what we sell. As a matter of fact, last year we booked over 10,000 weeks on Carnival Cruiselines making us the #3 booking agent in the world for Carnival. They treat us good!

All we have to do is point people to our website and YTB pays us 60% of the commission. The competition can not compete with this distribution model and here is why: We are bringing relationships back to an industry that the internet has been taking away. The convenience of online booking is still the same; it’s just that people can now put a face to the website. They book their travel as usual. They get to stay in the same hotels, the same all inclusive vacations, the same cruises, the same car rentals and they pay the same price, maybe even a little better. The difference is you. Here is a good example; my Mother will never go to another travel site because I’m her son and since nothing changes except for who gets paid, she books with me. It’s not like the telecom industry where Travelocity or Orbitz is gonna send my Mom a check for $50 bucks if she switches back. And, if one of my buddy’s books their travel with someone else, they can forget calling me the next time they need help moving. This is a perfect business model for the travel industry because over 80% of all vacations are already booked through a recommendation.
Now about YTB and why I have made a life-long commitment to this company: YTB is a 6 year old publicly traded company. They are seeing a 400% growth rate, eclipsing 1 billion dollars in travel bookings this year and have recently made it in the top 50 travel agencies in the world. The industry is taking notice because we came out of nowhere. The first few years was putting it all together. It was just in this last year that we moved into a perfect position to dominate the industry. YTB has also acquired a bank and 3 car dealerships, with many other auto manufactures coming soon. This part of our business goes live on June 1st. Just as travel has migrated to the internet, so are auto sales. When people purchase a vehicle, they usually go to the internet to research it. Because of the internet, many consumers know what the dealer cost is and suggested retail price before they even walk onto the car lot. And some people know more about the details of the car that they want than the sales person does. The dealerships are turning into nothing more than showroom/service centers because of the internet. It’s just heading that way. People are now going to be able to purchase a car, new or used from their local dealerships and you get paid because they were recommended from your website. There is a $500 commission paid for every purchase and we get 60% of that commission. We simply point people to our website and everything is done for us. Just as YTB is in front of the internet travel trend and is quickly and undeniably becoming the largest travel agency in the world, they are doing it with cars as well. There is a whole lot more coming with this company!

One of the things that I was taken back by was the fact that YTB has protected those of us in the field. They are the first company in the history of direct marketing that has filed a bill of rights with the SEC along with other state and federal regulatory agencies that insures our income for life. They can’t change our pay or take it away. If by chance they merge with another company, that company has to honor our income or the merger can not take place. Too many times people have invested years of hard work only to have a company change things up and either decrease or even eliminate their income. With YTB, that can’t happen.

Another thing that they did was issue a 100% no risk written guarantee to earn no less than $6,000 in the first year of following their system or they’ll pay you the difference. So if by some crazy chance you only earned $2500 in your first year of following their system, not only would you already be profitable, YTB would still write you a check for the $3,500 difference.

Right after I went out to St. Louis to see the company, I met up with a friend in Chicago who has been working with this company for close to 3 years. His income that month was a little over $125,000 and growing by at least another $5,000 each month. Now we both know it is not common to hit checks like that but it does happen when people are in the right place at the right time and ready for the opportunity. $125k a month is almost an impressive income but what really got me was that more than $73,000 of that was purely residual. I have seen quite a few checks like that being passed out in direct marketing over the years but I have never seen that kind of ratio. Typically, money like that is mainly derived from one time bonuses.

Every once in a while a phenomenon occurs in the direct marketing industry and there is no doubt that YTB is one of them. The industry has stood up and taken notice. And the interesting thing is that most people are not really aware of what is being done behind the scenes right now. But, it is almost a cliché in this industry to hear about how companies are going to be the next billion dollar giant and how the company owners are great business people with impeccable integrity. I was almost to the point of jumping up and strangling the next hypester who told me that. With YTB, you only need to allow yourself to see it for what it is and the rest of the story unfolds itself.

Now, here is the benefit. By owning an online travel agency, you are engaged in the travel profession. This gives you access to a side of travel that the average consumer never gets to see. You are allowed insider vacation packages that are deeply discounted, courtesy upgrades only available to those in the travel business, not to mention that since you are in the travel business, you get to write off your leisure vacations as well. And, you also get paid 60% of the vendor commission back on your own travel.

Another World of Travel

Another world of travel doesn’t have mean getting into a rocket and heading to Jupiter. In fact, right here on planet earth there are plenty of worlds to travel. You can travel in what I call, the traditional way. Go to a travel agent, book your tickets, get yourself an itinerary, schedule your vacation time, and then go about your world travel with everything planned out for you.

Another world of travel is that of the backpacker. Backpackers like to think of themselves as independent, meaning that they choose where to go, how long to stay, and don’t generally use the services of travel agents or trip bookers. However, in my experience, I find that most people who are backpacking aren’t truly independent. Many of them have schedules they need to follow, instead of a travel agent they use their Lonely Planet or other guide books, and though they don’t like to admit it, they often have things planned out in just as much detail as the traditional vacationers.

One thing that annoys me when I go to backpacker haunts is to hear some twenty two year old with a huge budget, pre booked activities, fully planned transportation, and no intention of getting off the beaten path ranting about the difference between travelers and tourists. He’s a tourist too, although one that isn’t spending as much money and carries a backpack. A better term for this kind of world traveler would be a backpack tourist.

Of course, the classic rant of tourist vs. traveler does have some merit behind it. A traveler is someone who is flexible in their plans. They usually forgo the comforts of expensive hotels for other means of finding a place to sleep while they travel the world, and most importantly, they tend to interact directly with the cultures and peoples they encounter.
