3 Vacation Mistakes To Avoid

It's chilly now, but we'll bet you can almost feel the sun on your shoulders as you dream about traveling to the Smokies later in the year. That's a great idea, but when making your plans, you might want to avoid some of the common pitfalls. Separate yourself from the rookie travelers by taking note of these mistakes.

1. Be flexible with your travel dates. Obviously, vacation dates are always negotiable, but to the extent you can, traveling on certain days can be cheaper than others, particularly when you're flying. Flexibility also could help you save money on accommodations.

2. Don't forget discounts or promotions. Are you a veteran or active-duty military? Are you a member of AARP or AAA. When booking hotels and car rentals, remember that most companies offer some sort of discount for these groups.

3. Don't overcrowd your schedule. We know you'll want to pack as much fun into one trip as possible, but over-cramming your itinerary can cause more stress than it's worth. Leave yourself plenty of time to see attractions, which often take longer than anticipated, and don't forget to build in driving time, which also can be a time burglar. Stay flexible with your daily calendar and leave some time for spontaneity.

For the record, our Smoky Mountain zip line experience takes two to three hours, so be sure to carve out enough time in your next trip to the Smokies to have some zipline fun with us!
