Off Peak Traveler
Traveling is one of the most enjoyable things you can do. Travel the world and see many exciting and different things. Countries such as Australia and Canada offer many different options when it comes to holidays. There is skiing, beaches, tours and events to attend, wineries to see and many great restaurants to eat at and sites to see.
Travelling at off peak times can be a great way of staying away from the crowds and maybe saving some money. When you travel at off peak times you can often get cheap flights and save yourself a bit of money. An off peak traveler needs to know what they are doing too save money and avoid the crowds. For example if you decide to go skiing in Canada you can go to Whistler but if you go before the first of Jauary each year you might not see any snow at all, even though the place is cold enough. Therefore you need to go to a place with snow such as Revelstoke which is also in BC- where the snow fall starts earlier and is guarenteed at this time.
When it comes to holidays these can be a great time to buy a holiday home. If you love the place you are visiting and want to come back regularly or want to save on hotel costs then owning a holiday home can be a great way of having holidays and saving money. Another option is to rent the holiday home out and benefit from a good income.
I have found many great investment properties by contacting local real estate agents and holiday home owners when on holiday, i found them by searching for people selling a house or house and land package in countries such as Australia. An example of this is House and land packages Brisbane and House and land packages Gold Coast. It is almost always better to buy property with a land component than units, units and townhouses also have weekly fees which eat into your profits. Buying realestate in countries such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand and America can be done while you are on holidays. One other thing to consider when owning a property overseas is that you will need to have a good property manager . A good property manager is honest and will help you mainain the property while making sure the rent is collected.
Getting a job and working is often a great way to not only afford your dream holiday it is a great way to get involved in the local lifestyle. You meet lots of nice people and can experience the place from a different angle. Alot of businesses are looking for extra staff during holiday times such as snow resorts and beach resorts all want extra staff to cater to the extra visitors their business will recieve. Employers in these incidences do offer incentives to get good staff , so not only do they provide staff training but some businesses will also provide management training to appropriate staff and other bonuses such as lift tickets or discounted meals. There are holidays that you can orgainse through specialty businesses that can organise a working holiday for you.
