How to Plan a Spontaneous Trip to Orlando (and Beyond)

When your humdrum morning commute and bland office walls just won’t do anymore, it’s time to get out of town. Not sure where to go? The internet is here to help! Travel booking site Wander will help you plan a spontaneous trip within your budget, from weekend getaways to week-long holidays. Check out our tips for planning spontaneous trips to Orlando and anywhere else your wanderlust takes you.

Save Up

Saving up for a spontaneous trip at a mystery destination can be challenging. The best way is to make saving money a habit. Even if you can only save a little bit, allocating a portion of each paycheck to a travel fund can add up over time. Knowing that you have a travel fund give you the liberty to escape the mundane whenever you want.

Wander Freely

Once you’ve checked the balance of your travel fund, you can set a budget for your trip. The rest is simple. Visit and enter your home airport and travel budget, the number of travelers and the dates you’d like to travel. The site will then quickly calculate exciting vacation destinations for you and show you a list of affordable hotels and flights all within your budget. You’ll be surprised at how far you can go even on a shoestring budget. If you prefer, you can also search by destination and Wander will show you the best prices on lodging and transportation.

Travel Lightly

It seems most airlines nowadays charge for virtually anything you bring in addition to your person, so it is important to learn how to travel as lightly as possible, especially when on a budget. A good trick is to pack everything first into a suitcase smaller than the one you plan on taking. Once you’ve made it all fit and are sure it’s below the weight limit, transfer it to your actual suitcase. This gives you a little extra room for the souvenirs and gifts which you will inevitably purchase.

Stay Organized

Use your time between trips wisely. While daydreaming of far-off destinations, draft a travel plan that will give you the freedom to take off whenever you like. Create a short list of contacts who can house sit, watch your pets, water your plants, etc. Keep your passport and any other documentation up to date, including medical records for your pets. Having everything in order makes it easy to pick up and go whenever the mood strikes.
