It may seem like a no-brainer, but before you go on vacation, get a good travel book about the destination. Travel books can help ensure you get the most out of your holiday dollars. Take a look at the hotel section Before You book your booking to make sure you don't pay the highest dollar value or to ensure that the hotel and the price you decide is really worth it.
This applies to travel books in Europe as well as specific holiday books, such as the Lanzarote guide books. Lonely Planet wrote good, but I prefer DK travel books in the series. Easy-to-read maps and simple writing scripts are realistic. They are loaded with photos and suggestions about what to see and where to eat. The DK book next to my bed is now dedicated to the entire Canary Islands, not just for a Lanzarote vacation. I also like this because although I traveled to the other islands, I didn't spend much time on the other islands. Find out the special handicrafts on the other islands or about this wonderful restaurant or bodega is really cool.
Regardless of the book next to your bed, you know you need the basics. You need to know the best places to stay, shop, eat and drink. You need to know what the weather will look like and when you will go for the best deals and the best weather. You need to know what museums are a must and which are bust. All the best travel books have a strong travel section with children. Look for large, clear maps and if you fold them, it's better.
Depending on the size of the book, new books will return you between $ 10 and $ 20. If you want a deal, look online. You can buy used travel books online and usually provide 50% or more. Most travel books come out in the spring, and April is the most popular month, so if you're traveling in the spring, you may have to settle a travel guide for the past year. In fact, for less popular places – like Lanzarote – you'll be lucky to get a new copy of a guide book every 3 or 4 years. Of course some things will change, but the basics of museums and sights will remain constant. The tape in the book may not be there anymore, but what is a vacation without a small adventure?
