Book Your Ski Vacation Now

Summer is past, autumn is in the air, cold weather will soon be rolling in, and snow will start to fall before too long. The winter months are popular travel times, especially in Colorado, as we have beautiful mountains and towns filled with cold-weather activities, particularly skiing and snowboarding. Individuals, couples, and families will travel from all over the state (and the country) to enjoy our snowy mountains as they hit the slopes bright and early before hitting the lodge and then the local restaurants in the evening to enjoy rib-sticking-good warm meals to prepare them for the next morning’s session.

As such, prices can quickly rise for ski passes and accommodations, meaning your dream ski trip may cost you much more than you had planned for — you may even need to postpone the trip for a few months, or until the next year. Rather than worrying about all of the moving pieces and components of booking a ski trip, you should consider contacting our Colorado travel agency and asking about our all-inclusive ski packages and how they can save time and money (not to mention reduce stress).

In a previous blog, we discussed the benefits of booking an all-inclusive vacation for you and your family and those same benefits apply to a ski trip. Packages often include travel, accommodations at a resort, rental gear if you need it, and lift passes. Options also include car rental, lessons, insurance, and more.

As a quick rundown, booking a ski package, rather than booking the travel, lodging, etc. piecemeal, means you’ll save yourself quite a bit of stress, time, and money. You won’t need to hunt for the best flights, the best hotels with the best rates closest to your preferred mountain, equipment, a car, and all of those other bits — you can select the comprehensive package that is right for you, your family, and your budget. Lodging and travel prices can increase in mere hours, so even if you find a good rate, if you don’t book it then and there, it could be gone by the time you’re ready. Ski packages are much more consistent and take the worrying out of the equation.

Ski travel specialists, like the ones in our Colorado travel agency, know how to bundle the pieces of the perfect ski trip so you have a stress-free, fun-filled, and exhilarating trip without any bumps in the road, or snow, so to speak. Additionally, you won’t have to worry about any additional costs down the line as you see upfront what the final price will be. If you’re a fan of group vacations (another subject we’ve written about and are happy to help you explore), you can add even more savings onto the top and have the added benefit of enjoying the trip with those you enjoy being around.

Things are really starting to get into full swing, so it’s best to book now before prices get driven up anymore. As a pro tip, look into the end of the season for your next trip if you aren’t ready to go just yet — the prices are often lower and it’s easier to lock in a great rate. Just ask our knowledgeable and helpful travel agents their opinion and we’ll be happy to walk you through your options. Contact us today for more information, or to start booking your ski trip now!

Your Passport Misses You

Are you sad because you wish you were traveling right now? You’re not alone — we recently read an interesting study from Hilton that said that 95% of Americans are missing travel right now. We know how they feel!

After seven months of restrictions brought on by the global Covid-19 pandemic, Americans are more than ready to travel again. In fact, 94% who travel said they plan to do so once restrictions and limitations are lifted. Over one-third of Americans plan to travel more than they previously did.

Here at Travel N Relax, we know we certainly have been missing the opportunity to travel as we have in the past as well. Travel is wired into our DNA, and it really seems out of place and peculiar to us that we’re not traveling as much as we’re used to.

Of course, when we read this study, we immediately wondered about you. Have you also been missing the opportunity to travel? Have you been dreaming of destinations you long to visit — domestic and/or international — once restrictions get lifted?

If yes, the great news is we have been seeing some incredible travel values coming out for both 2021 and beyond! This has led to some destinations already filling up and starting to see future dates getting booked out— so it’s better to start planning now than be met with “sold out” signs later on. You’ll also want to get that passport renewed if you’ve let it expire. In addition to letting you travel internationally, it also serves as a form of Real ID, which you’ll need come October 1, 2021, to travel at all by air.

Now is the ideal time to begin thinking about future travel options for the places you dream of going to! Whether you desire to travel this year, in the next few months or even further out in 2021 or beyond, it’s never too early to begin planning so we can make sure you aren’t left out of your preferred dates and destinations!

What questions do you have about those destinations? Are you wondering what’s open, or when it might be? What does travel even look like right now? Let’s connect and get your questions answered for you, so you know what to expect when you’re ready to travel.

(And don’t forget — we’re hosting regular Zoom video discussions on what’s going on at different destinations around the world; check out our events page for information on our next one, when we’re exploring Anchorage, Alaska!)

We miss you and continue to send you our best wishes and thoughts during these times. We look forward to reconnecting with you soon!

The Benefits of an All-Inclusive Vacation

Are you tired of the day to day monotony, waking up, working, watching tv, and doing it all over again the next day, and the next? Have you been dreaming of your next big vacation in some exotic and exciting land, but have been worrying about searching, planning, paying, and traveling? There are a number of stresses that come along with planning your vacation, which is why it’s often better to consult a Denver travel agency to handle it for you, but plenty of people worry about finances at their destination.

How much should you set aside for food and drinks? How much will the activities you want to partake in cost you? Accommodations can quickly drive up your vacation budget and drain your wallet. But, there is good news for those in the market for a vacation who want to minimize stress and avoid going over budget: all-inclusive vacations.

You’ve probably heard of all-inclusive vacations before, but for a quick recap, it basically means that every part of the vacation (travel, lodging, food, activities) are all compiled into one affordable bundle, meaning you don’t need to worry about any piece of planning. Let’s take a look at the benefits of an all-inclusive vacation to see if it’s right for you.

Save time and money

As we mentioned, all-inclusive vacations take all of the confusing and irritating parts of booking a vacation and simplify it into choosing the right package for you and/or your family. No more hunting through flights, hotels, restaurants, meals, and more. You simply pick the right package and book. Since all of these pieces are bundled, you’ll save money overall and can likely take advantage of deals and specials either a Denver travel agency or the resort is offering.


Just like any city, there may be some dangerous areas where you’re headed. By booking an all-inclusive package, you can rest and relax without a worry in the resort and can roam freely knowing you’ll be safe. Need to grab a meal? It’s in the resort. Want to hit the shops? Take a nice walk through the resort. Your family will thank you!

Entertainment galore

Resorts and cruises are homes to tons of attractions and actives for you and your family to enjoy. Lounge by the pool, catch a show, go dancing – whatever it is you like to do, you can almost guarantee that a resort or cruise will have what you’re looking for.

You can actually enjoy your vacation

When you aren’t on an all-inclusive vacation, you have to worry about every decision before and while you make it. How are you getting to the next activity? What activity will you do after that? When should you eat? Where should you eat? How are you getting there? How much does all of this cost.


All-inclusive vacations have you pay upfront so every decision thereafter has already been taken care of. You only need to worry about the next bit of fun you have scheduled. Or, you can wing it and take it minute-by-minute and enjoy yourself that way. There’s something for everyone, but everyone enjoys zero-stress.
