Are your plans for the holiday postponed this year? There’s nothing worse than the prospect of a ruined trip, especially if you have to break it to your children.
But if your 2020 holiday has been canceled, you’re not alone. Thousands of holidaymakers are dealing with an eclectic mix of disappointment and frustration thanks to Covid-19 travel restrictions. However, understanding your rights and knowing what action to take next will certainly make you feel better about the situation. The team at Creditfix has created a helpful infographic detailing your rights as a consumer, how you can rebook or get a refund – check it out for some much-needed clarity.
So, if you’re facing the next few weeks with seemingly little to look forward to, check out these 5 fun things to do if you had your plans for the holiday postponed.
Take some time to learn the language
If you were planning on heading abroad, why not take this time to get to grips with the language of your chosen destination? Speaking and understanding even just a few simple phrases will not only make your trip easier, but you’ll have the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the local culture and make more of your break when you (finally) get there!
Look after yourself
Whether you were planning on having a beach body ready for your break, or you’re feeling a little sluggish after months of being stuck indoors, why not take this time to work on your health? Cook yourself some meals from scratch and say no to those weekly take-aways. Hit the gym, or enjoy some more home-based workouts to get your body and mind in sync.
Read those holiday novels
Most of us enjoy a good book or two on vacation. But just because your holiday has been canceled it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy them at home. Transport yourself to a completely different world by delving into a new holiday read. Reading is a wonderful way to relax, you don’t need a sun-kissed beach or a sun lounger to reap the benefits!
Try a staycation
If you follow Creditfix’s advice and get yourself a refund, then you have the option of spending your money on a staycation instead. Is there somewhere in your home country you’ve always wanted to visit? A vibrant food scene you’ve always wanted to experience? Or maybe you and your partner could benefit from a romantic “no kids allowed” weekend away? Just because your grand holiday plans have been canceled, it doesn’t mean you can’t get away from it all during the interim.
Enjoy time off work
If possible, still try to take those days you booked off work. Giving yourself a chance to refresh and recharge is good news for your physical and mental wellbeing. It’s also likely to improve your performance at work and keep you feeling upbeat despite your holiday fiasco.
Don’t let a canceled vacation spoil the rest of your year. Use the time to focus on your mental and physical wellbeing so that you can still reap the benefits of a much-needed break.
