So, you're going on vacation? Lucky you. It's never the wrong time to go on vacation. No matter the season or time of year going on vacation is always a welcome getaway. Especially if you've become overwhelmed with your job or hectic lifestyle. At some point during the year everybody needs a vacation. Don't think that just because you're going on vacation you can slack off in preparing for it. There's a lot you have to do before you can tell the company you work for that you're going on vacation.

You have to book your hotel room or make arrangements to stay with family or friends, do some research on your travel destination if you've never been there so you can figure out the main hotspots, call your home security company to let them know you'll be away for some time and give them a number they can contact you at in case anything happens, ask a neighbor to check up on your house occasionally and collect the mail, and buy any travel essentials that you need that you don't already have. Those are just a few things you're going to have to do before you gas up the car.

You're not quite ready for vacation time just yet even after getting the above things to do done. Before getting all excited about planning your road trip you must inquire with your employer about vacation time entitlements. You need to find out from your employer if you even can take a vacation. If so you then need to figure out how much vacation time you're allotted throughout the course of the year and whether or not you get paid vacation time or not. You also need to find out how much time in advance you need to give your company when it comes to asking for vacation time.

All employers are different, which is why you need to find out all this pertinent information. It would really be a buzzkill if you went and planned a romantic getaway with your loved one in Paris only to find out that you don't actually have any vacation time coming. Get all your ducks lined up before you start making any plans. That way you won't be disappointed if you find out you can't take a vacation you had planned. You also won't be wasting any money having booked and paid for a vacation you can't take.
