Many people understand that travel and tourism planning and advance booking are very important for anyone who is about to go anywhere all over the world. By doing this the traveller ensures a place for staying before reaching the desired destination. The traveller can also get all information about fares and how appropriate they are for the desired budget. Although these are self-evident things we all accept and approve; especially in the current time when the technological developments we are witnessing in our life have minimised the time and effort needed, some tourists do not consider booking in advance nor do they give travel planning the importance it deserve. This lands some of these tourists in hot water as they have to face situations where vacant hotel rooms are lacking or high fares that are more than affordable. As a result, those tourists have nothing to say or do but direct their fierce and unreasonable criticism towards others, disregarding their own responsibility for not making the proper bookings in advance.
There is no doubt that travelling, be it annual vacation or short ones, require proper planning. Everyone has to take into consideration the fact that without proper advance booking they may face a host of problems, apart from lack of vacant places or high fares, like important places that have to be covered in a trip and the kind of amenities that they can avail of.
The report that more than 93,000 tourists visited the Governorate of Dhofar during Eid al Fitr holidays made for pleasant reading. To have this kind of flow of tourists and visitors during such a short vacation is noteworthy, but the more important matter is making bookings well in advance as during such short holidays a lot of tourists are expected. This trap has caught many tourists and visitors, especially those from neighbouring Gulf countries and those who came to Salalah from different cities in Oman by surprise! Their failure for not making prior arrangements for advance booking is their mistake and no other authority or party has anything to do with that. The responsibility lies on the shoulder of tourists themselves in the first place. Any hotel facility has its own occupancy capacity. This fact should be observed by tourists and visitors anywhere, especially by those who don’t give any attention to the advance booking. The only thing that is required is they do their booking well in advance either through the websites of hotel facilities, by making a short phone call or by any other way available today.
The culture of making plans for everything, either travel or business, should be rooted and established inside everybody. This planning makes us avoid many problems that can disturb our holidays. Of course, the problems are the last thing we like to have during our vacations. Planning gives visitors and tourists a clear picture about how their journey or the trip would go, what is the best budget and how everything that you require during your holiday is appropriate to your needs and liking.
Of course, many tourists realise this fact, and make booking well in advance for flights or hotels. These are the tourists who have known charted their course way before they stepped out of their houses knowing fully well what is in store for them during their holidays. On the contrary, there are others who make no proper plans and who find themselves face to face with over-crowded hotel facilities and more than affordable fares. Lets hope that travellers make their plans well in advance and in accordance with the season so that they may have a pleasant holiday.
