It is frustrating when you already planned certain trips and you decided to not push through anymore for some reasons. Worse, when you are with a group, they might have to change their plans or even cancel the trip altogether because you decided not to join. These are some of the most common excuses for canceling the travel plans and how you can avoid them.
Lack of funds
planned the trip for quite some time, you already paid some of the expenses.
However, you will still need pocket money for the trip and emergency funds in
case you face some problems while you are there. Therefore, using up your funds
might be a reason for you to not join at all. It is quite a lame reason since
you knew that you are heading for a trip. Find
a way to save money ahead of the trip and do not touch it until it
is time to travel. Under worst circumstances, you can get a loan or borrow from
a friend. You can deal with the payments later once you come back.
It is also
unfortunate if you decide to cancel your plans because of a work related task
or activity. Again, when you planned this trip way back, you need to have
already prepared everything and that means finishing up your work. If you did
not, it is your fault. If something came up, it means that you did not finalize
your leave ahead of time. Inform
your bosses about your plans so that they will not assign something
to you on those dates. If they will, it is too cruel of them. Manage your schedule
well and finish all the necessary tasks way ahead of your scheduled trip.
You cannot stop
problems from occurring in your family and it is an understandable excuse.
However, you also need to determine if you can find a way to still push through
despite the problem. Some of them are easy to solve. For instance, if you have
no one to take care of your kids, you can call
your mom or ask a favor from your neighbor. Besides, you should have
already done it a long time ago. If there are serious medical conditions faced
by a family member, it is unfortunate and you cannot do anything about it.
You are not
in the mood
Traveling is fun
and exciting, but there are times when you decide to flake out because you are
not in the mood. You also cannot figure out why you feel that way. It is
understandable for you to have mood changes. It could be because of the people
you are going out with. You might also be feeling unwell on that day. The good
thing is that when you start packing your things and looking back at what you
have already prepared for this trip, you will realize that now is not the time
to cancel the plans.
