5 top tips to help you plan your best holiday yet

1. Ask for advice from people who have been there done that. Tips from travellers are far more valuable than any book that may have been printed years ago – from hotel recommendations to things to do when you get there, these tips are gold.

2. Carefully consider when you’ll book your flights, as doing this on the right day can save you big. Research by Skyscanner found this really depends on where you’re headed, and where you headed from so check out the info chart then jot the date in your diary.

3. Pack like you do it professionally. Army personnel know how to fit a lot into very little and have shared their best packing tips for us all to enjoy. Spoiler: it’s all about the socks.

4. Stay healthy and hydrated on board. Celebrity makeup artist Liz Kelsh knows how to stay looking your best with the air pressure is low, and it comes down to packing the right beauty products in your carry-on luggage. So Liz shares exactly which products make the cut for her.

5. Don’t let jet lag get you down there are many ways you can beat jet lag that don’t involve sleeping for the first couple days of your trip.
