Being environmentally conscious is something that many people take pride in. When they go on vacation, however, they are often at a loss as to how they can travel while still staying environmentally friendly. In an effort to assist these vacationers, Eccentry Holidays, a concierge country club travel agency, is sharing four ways that vacationers can have less of an environmental impact on their next vacation.
Use less water.
After a long day of touring the countryside, playing at the beach, or a whole host of other activities, it is easy to want to take a long, hot shower. It is always important to remember, though, that in many places, water is a very precious and scarce resource. Some of the best ways to use less water are taking shorter showers, avoid using the bathtub, turning off the faucet while shaving and brushing one’s teeth, washing one’s clothes in the sink and bringing water bottles.
Make sure no excess energy is being used at home.
Before even heading out for a sustainable vacation, it is important to start conserving energy and resources at home, shares Eccentry Holidays. When leaving for a vacation, make sure to double-check that all appliances (such as toasters, coffee makers, blenders) and other electrical items that plug into the wall (such as lamps, computers, gaming consoles and more) have been unplugged. Simply leaving these devices plugged into the wall can be a big drain on electricity when a person is not even in their home.
Fly less and travel more.
People flying to different places around the world burns an astronomical amount of gasoline every day, and all of these fumes are then released into the environment. One thing that the individual flyer can do in order to reduce these harmful effects is to travel more and fly less. Instead of taking several shorter trips, Eccentry Holidays recommends taking one long trip where the vacationer travels to several different destinations by other modes of transportation including trains.
By following these tips, travelers will not only enjoy their vacations, but they will enjoy the fact that they are treading lightly upon the places that they are visiting, helping to preserve their natural beauty and ambiance.

The summer will soon be over, but with the time left before school starts up again, Eccentry Holidays knows that the Orlando, Florida, theme parks are going to be busy. The summer is always the top season for these fun-filled theme parks, especially for families, and now that there is a limited time left to visit before school starts up again, the parks are sure to be full of happy travelers that are setting out for those last-minute vacations. For all those who are destined for the Orlando theme parks soon, here are some tips from Eccentry Holidays to help travelers in the most popular parks.
- Check on maintenance: For the parks that are open all year round, maintenance cannot be done on rides and attractions when the park is closed. As a result, different rides have their maintenance scheduled during open hours. If travelers want to make sure that they will be able to catch their favorite ride, they should look online beforehand to make sure it will be open during their visit.
- Dietary needs: For travelers who have dietary needs or allergies, Eccentry Holidays knows that most of these parks are more than happy to help. It is easiest to mention these restrictions to the park restaurant reservations number or to guest services. They will help each traveler find food options to fit their specific needs.
- Annual Passes: Many people find their trip to an Orlando theme park to be so much fun that they are definitely going to want to come back to it again in the near future. These theme parks will allow travelers who decide to buy annual passes to apply the price of their current ticket to the purchase of a full annual pass. Purchasing an annual pass will help travelers ensure that they can have outstanding experiences in Florida long after the summer is over.
Eccentry Holidays is excited to for all the travelers who will be visiting the Orlando parks this summer and knows that they will all find what they are looking for in a perfect summer vacation. For more information on summer travel fun in Florida, visit www.eccentryholidays.com.
Eccentry Holidays knows that having your luggage and bags pre-checked in and signed up online before you arrive at the airport. If you have your luggage and bags pre-checked through using a computer at your home you can save valuable time in the process of boarding and pre-departure activities.
So how you do this is first you start by packing all your bags including your carry-on bag. Start with packing your carry-on bag first and keep the first tip in mind pack lightly but appropriately as much as possible. If you do need the extra suitcase then that is the next item you pack and at the same time keep in mind that chances that you will be buying something while you are traveling are very high. Eccentry Holidays suggests you keep some space open in your suitcase for the items that you know you will end up buying.
Then log onto the airlines webpage with your information and enter the number of the bags that you are taking with you. You should not include your carry-on bag unless they ask about that in particular. At this point the webpage will probably ask you for your credit card information and that is fine as it is charging you for their luggage fee.
Eccentry Holidays recommends that you check to make sure that webpage is secure before you proceed though. Then you will want to print the luggage tag or receipt that the webpage gives you and bring that to the airport with you as well as your other items.Read More
