New Travel Hacks to Try in 2023

April 13, 2023

Travel is finally picking up and more people are looking to come to Toronto to explore all the great things the city has to offer. With that comes new opportunities to explore and new ways to save money while doing so. In this article, we’ll cover the top travel hacks to try in 2023 that will not only save you money but also help you get the most out of your trip. From booking strategies for groups, or families, to packing tips, we’ve got you covered.

Use Credit Card Points for Flights

One of the easiest ways to save money on travel is by using your points on your credit card, especially for flights. Many dedicated loyalty programs offer reward incentives that allow you to earn points with each purchase you make. These points can be redeemed for travel-related expenses like flights and rental cars. Be sure to research the rewards programs offered by your credit card provider, subscribe to email newsletters from airline companies, and use your card for all travel-related expenses to maximize your rewards.

Book Early

Another way to save money on travel is by booking early. The earlier you book, the more likely you are to find lower prices on flights, experiences, and rental cars. Additionally, booking early gives you more time to research and plan your trip, which can help you find the best deals and avoid unnecessary expenses.

Travel During The Off-Season

Traveling during peak season can be expensive, so consider traveling during off-seasons. Not only will you save money on travel expenses, but you’ll also avoid crowds and have a more authentic travel experience. Do some research on your destination’s peak season and plan your trip accordingly.

Use Public Transportation

Using public transportation is not only cheaper than renting a car, but it can also help you experience your destination like a local. Research the public transportation options available at your destination and plan your itinerary accordingly. Many cities offer discounted public transportation passes for tourists, so be sure to look into that as well.

Stay in a Furnished Apartment Instead of a Hotel

Staying in a furnished apartment can be a great way to better utilize your accommodations during your stay in the city. Furnished apartments, like DelSuites, offer comfortable and luxurious units with multiple bedrooms for you to travel with your family. DelSuites furnished apartment rentals in Toronto offer a variety of accommodation options, from studio to 3-bedroom suites, making it easy to choose the space that best suits you.

Pack Smart and Sustainably

Packing smart can not only save you money on baggage fees but also make your trip more comfortable. Pack versatile clothing items that can be mixed and matched and bring travel-sized toiletries to avoid having to purchase them at your destination. Additionally, make sure to pack any necessary medication or electronics to avoid having to purchase them at a higher price abroad.

Research Free Activities

Researching free activities in your destination can not only save you money but can also help you experience your destination in a more authentic way. Look for free walking tours, parks, and museums to explore during your trip. Additionally, look into any festivals or events that may be happening during your stay.

Be Flexible with Your Dates

Finally, being flexible with your travel plans can help you save money and have a more enjoyable trip. Consider traveling to destinations that are not as well-known, or changing your travel.

Use Travel Hacks To Get More Out of Your Trips

These travel hacks are sure to help you save money and have a more enjoyable trip in 2023. Remember to plan ahead, research your destination, and be open to new experiences. By utilizing these tips, you can make the most of your travels without breaking the bank. Safe travels!

Employee Relocation, Short Term Rentals, DelSuites

Are you looking to move to a new area, or are you in the middle of a career change?

Moving to a new city can be fun and stressful at the same time. Finding a place to stay that feels like home while you get settled is one of the hardest things to do. Furnished condo rentals in Toronto are a great choice for people who want a solution that is comfortable, easy, and flexible with changes in their lives.

Here are 6 Ways Short-Term Condo Rentals Are A Game-Changer For Employee Relocation

Furnished And Feels Like Home

There are many reasons to stay in a furnished condo rental in Toronto. First of all, you’ll have all the comforts of home, like a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable furniture, and a variety of amenities. This means you won’t have to worry about finding and buying furniture or other household items, which can be a time-consuming and expensive task.

Convenient, Stress-Free Living

One of the best things about furnished condo rentals in Toronto is that they are very convenient. Many of these rentals are in nice areas that are close to restaurants, public transportation, and other amenities. Even if you don’t have a car, this makes it easy to get around and see the city.

Can Be More Cost Effective Than Hotels

Toronto condo rentals that come with furniture are also a great deal for the money compared to some hotels, especially during the high season. They can be cheaper than hotels, especially if you plan to stay for a long time. This can make a big difference, especially if you are on a tight budget. In addition, a majority of hotels, do not have some of the comforts compared to an extended stay condo rental, like a full kitchen, a balcony to enjoy, and even a living room setup.

Locations Close To Everything You Need

There are a few things to keep in mind when looking for the right Toronto furnished condo rental. First, you should think about the location. Think about what you want to be close to, like public transportation, restaurants, shops, etc. Also, think about how big the condo is. If you’re travelling alone, a studio or one-bedroom condo may be perfect, but if you’re coming with family or friends, a larger condo may be better.

Flexible Length of Stay

The length of your stay is another important thing to think about. There are a lot of short-term and long-term condo rentals in Toronto that come with furniture. If you only plan to stay for a few weeks or months, you may be able to find a great deal on a short-term rental. But if you plan to stay for a long time, you may want to look for a longer-term rental.

Wonderful Amenities

Lastly, think about what you need in terms of amenities. Most of the condos for rent in Toronto that are already furnished have a full kitchen, comfortable furniture, and a place to do laundry on-site. But if you need certain things, like a gym or pool, make sure to check before you book that these things are available.

Relocate Somewhere Suited To You

In conclusion, furnished condo rentals in Toronto are a great option for people who are moving to a new city and want a comfortable, convenient, and affordable place to live. With so many options for location and features, you’ll be able to find a rental that fits all your needs. You’ll be able to make the most of your time in Toronto and feel right at home in no time if you rent the right place.

If you are an employee relocating for a job or transitioning into a new career in a new city, furnished short-term condo rentals in Toronto are a game changer.

Toronto is a busy and varied city that gives visitors a wide range of things to do and see.

There’s something for everyone in Toronto, whether they like art, food, history, or the outdoors. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your time in the city if you plan to stay there for 30 or more days.

After you are settled at your new condo rental conveniently located in the city, it’s time to explore what the city has to offer.

Try New Food Spots

The food scene is one of the best things about Toronto. People from all over the world live in the city, so there are many different kinds of food to try. There’s something for everyone, from street vendors who sell traditional Canadian poutine to high-end restaurants that serve modern, delicious food. New to the city? Head to St. Lawrence Market for some smoked meat sandwiches, butter tarts, and peameal bacon are some dishes you must try. Take a food tour to try different dishes and learn about the city’s food history for a more unique experience.

Attend New Exhibits at Toronto’s Museums

Going to one of Toronto’s many museums or art galleries is another popular thing to do there. The Royal Ontario Museum, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art are all located conveniently in the city. These places have a lot of different kinds of art and artifacts, including works by Canadian and international artists. You can also see modern art, photography, and design in a number of smaller galleries and specific exhibition spaces.

Get Out To Green Spaces

If you want to do something more active, Toronto has a lot of parks and green spaces for you to explore. The Rouge National Urban Park, which is in the city, is the largest urban park in North America. It has places to hike, camp, and watch birds. High Park, which has a zoo, an outdoor swimming pool, and a playground, is another popular park. Trinity Bellwoods Park is a popular place for picnics, outdoor concerts and plenty of trees to relax under for an afternoon.

Learn About The History

Toronto has a lot of historic sites and buildings for people who are interested in history and architecture. The Fort York National Historic Site is the oldest building in the city. It used to be a military fort and was built in the late 18th century. There are also several Victorian-era houses in the city, like the Spadina House, which is open to the public and can be toured.

Shopping, Shopping, Shopping

Lastly, if you want a more laid-back trip, Toronto has a lot of shopping, dining, and entertainment options. There are many shopping areas in the city, like Queen Street West, Kensington Market and the shops along Ossington Avenue, which are known for their vintage clothing stores and small, independent shops.

Business Travel: Top Trends To Watch For In 2023

February 24, 2023
Business Travel, Top Trends for 2023

The world of business travel is one that is continuously changing as we see new patterns emerge in how people travel for work. These trends are influencing the way in which businesses and their employees think about and approach business travel to and from Canada. These trends include the growing importance of traveling in a way that is good for the environment, the focus on keeping an eye on costs, and the desire to have more control over the booking process and provide a more well-rounded experience that combats employee fatigue.

The Top Trends In Business Travel To Watch For In 2023

The Decisions Surrounding Remote Calls Versus In-Person Meetings

Companies are having more and more discussions about whether or not employees need to go on short-term trips and whether or not online meetings can replace in-person assignments. More people are realizing how important it is to travel which is good for the environment. This is a big reason why travellers are taking fewer business trips, or if they do travel, they may incorporate some vacation travel and extend their stay. However, there is a case to be made for employees who want to be less online and more social, so in-person meetings could have a more positive impact in 2023.

Travel Costs Will Be More Closely Monitored

We expect that restrictions will still be put on “discretionary” and short-term business travel, which has not yet returned to its pre-pandemic level. Even though there was more international travel in 2022, we can see that business travel and the costs surrounding trips would be more closely monitored. You can see this in more recent cuts from large tech companies in Silicon Valley as more companies tighten up their budgets going into the new year.

Making Reservations Will Be Easier Than Ever Before

Business travellers are extremely reliant on technology and have high expectations of the companies that facilitate their trips, including travel brokers and accommodation providers. Business travellers frequently voice a desire for increased influence over the booking process, and consumers are becoming more interested in self-booking alternatives. We will see more leniency in terms of booking and travel arrangements with more personal options in mind.

Combining Business and Leisure Travel

The trend toward combining business and leisure travel is still an important factor. With remote work causing longer and more on-demand work schedules, it is becoming increasingly common for travellers to bring their families along with them on their trips. Putting together a trip that includes both business travel and vacation travel can help cut down on travel costs overall.

Higher Expectations From Business Travellers

Corporate travelers have higher expectations for their trips. Organizations frequently conduct in-depth research prior to booking and even look to receive travel reward points. They want to be able to plan, book and pay for their travel experience within the parameters of the policy, but they also want more control and options, so they want to combine self-service “extras” with the experience.

Takeaways From These Business Travel Trends

As we navigate 2023, it’s clear that business travel is changing, so it’s important to stay up-to-date and adapt. As a business traveller, it’s important to know the industry’s trends and changes so you can make efficient, eco-friendly decisions about your travel plans.

With DelSuites, we adapt to the travel plans of every business traveller that stays with us. Our 30-day plus furnished condo rentals all over the Greater Toronto Area, allow us to provide that flexibility as trends change.
