Hi everyone!

The COVID-19 Pandemic has sidelined many of our travel plans in the last year, although I'm sure you’re spending the downtime plotting out that next perfect adventure. With that in mind, I have a quick polling question for the community.

What’s typically the most challenging part of your trip planning and execution?

1. Arranging for transportation that gets you to everything on your bucket list
2. Finding unique “hidden gems” to visit when planning
3. Packing it all in on a tight schedule
4. Coordinating with your travel crew
5. Other

If anyone can comment the number related to their answer below that would be awesome! I'd love to hear some reasoning or experiences behind your answers too if you're willing to share :)

None of these actually qualify as challenges to experienced travellers, I'm afraid, they are just normal part of the preparations for a trip. Maybe that's why you got no answers so far?

Packing....

When I am packing the night before, I have usually finished work and am tired. Getting there is the hassle.

that’s fair, I guess it was meant to be directed just at travellers of any experience level. My main goal was to figure out what part of the travel process tends to be give the average travel the most difficult or could be made easier

I'm struggling to figure out your purpose with this. Are you planning to travel and trying to anticipate the problems you'll encounter?

When you say "could be made easier", that's sometimes the preamble to a sales pitch.

It's a survey that was asked on another forum. There was this reply to a query:

We’re working on a tourism based start up this isn’t government

These vague weird questions from 1st time posters seem to crop up periodically. In the past I've spent time posting considered answers. No more as I'm unconvinced of the motive behind them. The questions in this one seem to make no sense to any travelling I've done.

Yes, it's often not worth responding to general questions, particularly from those who don't tell you much about themselves. Even if they do, it's sometimes suspect. Today I reported a new user who appropriated the photo of another person 13,955 kilometers away.

Sorry guys. I'm working on a small start-up project with a friend that is tourism based and we were just hoping to do a bit of product solution validation so I wanted to do what I thought would be a fairly rudimentary poll. I didn't think I would receive this type of response. I'll refrain from posting here anymore. Thanks for your time
