A travel website, Budgettravel.com, has compiled a list of the common mistakes that you can avoid to ensure a wonderful vacation.
According to the site, not booking enough connection time between flights and not applying for passports early enough are two of the most common mistakes that can derail a trip.
Also, trying to do too much in one trip may not be the best idea.
The site has pointed out that you should consider staying in pricier hotels in the center of city you are planning to go to, rather than staying out in the suburbs and spending money and time on transportation.
Another common mistake is to select your hotel based on marketing photos, as carefully chosen snaps can make any property look attractive.
