4 WAYS TO LAY THE GROUNDWORK FOR A GREAT WINTER HOLIDAY
July 25, 2019
The winter school holidays are around the corner, which means it’s time to gather up your nearest and dearest to enjoy some well-deserved time out. Are you getting ready to embark on your 2019 vacation soon? Here are four ways to lay the groundwork for a rewarding winter holiday with your partner, family or group of friends:
TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT YOUR BUDGET
It may only be June, but most of us really feel the need for a break. Before you make your plans to go away, take some time to sit down with your partner and discuss your budget. It can be tempting to YOLO your way into a fabulous holiday with no expenses spared, but overspending on a holiday or going into debt is never a good idea. Figure out how much you can spend without dipping into credit and plan your vacation accordingly – you’ll be happier (and more relaxed!) in the long run.
DISCUSS OPTIONS WITH THE FAM
Whether you’re travelling with your partner, family or a group of friends, it pays to plan a trip that touches on the different interests of everyone involved. You may be super keen on a fishing trip, while someone else might prefer to make their way to the city to enjoy some time in museums or trawl for treasures at antique shops. Yet another member of the group may want to go on a hike or two, or seek out innovative restaurants. The best holidays are those that strike a balance between the interests of all parties, so see if there is a way to make room for everyone’s must-do outings.
There is nothing that will derail a trip as quickly as a family member or partner getting ill. Make sure to treat your body right in the lead-up to your holiday. Eat a balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, stay hydrated and consider getting a flu shot if you want to up the ante on your body’s natural defences. Feeling a little rundown? A vitamin B shot from your local pharmacy could make a big difference in your energy levels.
MAKE SURE YOU’RE COVERED
If you’re headed on an extended road trip, make sure to check up on all your insurance policies before you go. Is your car insurance up to date? And what about personal life and critical illness cover? MiWayLife offers a 4-in-1 policy
with only one monthly premium. This innovative concept provides comprehensive life cover for you, funeral cover for you and your extended family, as well as a terminal illness accelerator.
If you, your partner and/or other members of your family are very active, and plan to partake in athletic events over the course of the holidays, you may also want to consider investing in the MiFitLife benefit from MiWayLife. Designed by athletes for athletes, this policy offers lifestyle benefits designed specifically for active individuals (see if you qualify!).
TOP TIP: Save copies of your insurance policy schedules on a cloud-based platform and share it with your immediate family so everyone has access to this important information in the event of an accident.
Once you have these four vital components in place, your winter holiday is bound to go smoothly. In the end it’s all about having a nice rest and spending some quality time with the most important people in your life, so relax and have fun!

In the meantime, feel free to get in touch with a MiWayLife representative if you would like to learn more about their life insurance offering.
