Relaxation is an art, and you’re the Picasso of it.

The countdown to the summer holidays has begun. Whether you’ve got an overseas trip booked, secured an interesting bed-and-breakfast in the country, or are buzzing for a quiet stay-cay at home, this summer is yours for total R&R.

So to make sure you’re totally off-the-clock (with sunnies on and drink in hand), here are some top tips to achieve holiday bliss. 


Ready, jet set, go!

With the world (and Australia) opening up, practically everyone will be heading to the airports this summer. Airports are the new local dog park.

We’ve all seen the news of plane delays and wait times, so it might be a wise idea to get to the airport a little earlier than usual to beat the check-in crowds. For international flights, try three hours before check-in, and for domestic, we’re looking at two hours. There’s nothing worse than missing your flight. And that includes spilling your ice-cream on the floor.

If you’re travelling overseas, why not take international transaction travel fees off your mind, with $0 international transactions fees through Orange Everyday We see those worry lines melting away already.


Stay-cay, away.

Maybe you’ve decided to enjoy a little stay-cation home this summer instead of international travel. Fun! There are plenty of things to enjoy on our local shores.

Why not escape to the country in a tiny-home getaway, to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Stargaze the country sky, and learn how to start a camp fire, just to roast a marshmallow or two.

Take a break from the house and be a tourist in your own city, by booking a hotel down the road.

Or pack up your car and hit the road on the biggest road trip ever, following the trail of the Big Potato, the Big Banana and the Big Prawn. Before you do, why not look into the different types of ING Car Insurance to make sure you’re covered for any small bumps along the way.

Now go on and turn your out-of-office on.
