Surprise vacations have definitely become a trend as of late and allow travelers to put the planning aside and truly enjoy the time away in a new destination. The latest company to embark on surprise vacations is one called Pack Up + Go.
Everyone is busy, so who has time to plan a full trip’s itinerary, including hotels, flights and things to do? Pack Up + Go takes care of all of that, but in return, you have to give up your power to choose the destination.
To have them plan a trip for you, sign up for an account on the website and complete a form indicating your budget, whether you want to travel by train or bus, and whether you’ll be traveling alone or with others. You can also enter your travel dates and then complete a short survey indicating your travel preferences, including whether you have any time restrictions on your travel days, where you went and what you did on your past three leisure trips, and what sort of activities you enjoy, like historical sites, vineyards, food markets, etc.
Then the team at Pack Up + Go plans a three-day trip for you within the United States. One week before the trip, you receive the weather forecast and suggestions of what to pack for the climate. You’ll also receive detailed flight information. Then a few days before, Pick Up + Go sends a package with all the travel information, meant to be opened on the day of travel. The package also includes suggestions on what to see and do in the location, curated for your interests.
Prices for the services start at $400, the starting price for a multi-person road trip.
