How to Keep Life Spontaneous: Travel Adventures at Home and Beyond

Posted

(BPT) - We’ve spent the past year bookmarking the travel excursions of our dreams and now our next flight finally seems to be in sight. We’re all yearning for more spontaneity and adventure — to connect with the people we love while revisiting all the places we miss. This year we hope to lean into spontaneity like never before and embrace a change of scenery. Once we are ready to make plans and book trips, travel rewards cards like the new United QuestSM Card help to earn miles on all our adventures along the way and provide travel perks that make getting to and from your destination even more enjoyable.

From exploring a new destination to creating adventures at home, there are plenty of ways to indulge your wanderlust and scratch that travel itch once again.

Travel Inspiration

Surprise your family or friends with an at-home movie experience like no other. Pick your top three travel-inspired movies on your favorite streaming service, order in foods that fit that destination and use inspiration from the film to decorate your living room. Then set the delivery time for just ahead of when you’re planning to hit “play.” Stack some pillows and blankets to craft a cozy alcove as your favorite movie transports you to another place or time.

Even though you’re not leaving your own four walls, your loved ones will appreciate the opportunity to enjoy each other through a unique and comfortable experience.

Try a Surprise Trip, Near or Far

The past year has given us a new appreciation for the people and businesses that operate right out of our own backyards. Exploring a new place or restaurant can quench your thirst for travel and bring about entirely new experiences.

Surprise your loved ones by booking a homestay nearby to see life from a new vantage point. Lock in a room with a view in the next town over or book a beachside condo to take in some new views, eats and adventures. This past year has completely redefined travel — but the feeling of trying something new and embracing spontaneity can spark the adventure we’ve all been missing.

Earn Rewards Today, for Future Travel

For those who are ready to take their next trip, and maybe even have something on the books, perhaps it’s time to elevate that experience into something entirely new. Travel rewards cards like the new United Quest Card offer unique opportunities to earn on travel and towards travel, transforming everyday experiences into stepping-stones to your next dream vacation.[1]

When booking any travel with the United Quest Card, you can earn 3X miles for every $1 spent on United purchases, 2X miles for every $1 spent on all other travel, 2X miles for every $1 spent on dining and select streaming services and a $125 annual United purchase credit. And in the spirit of totally elevating the flight experience, the Quest Card offers two free checked bags, priority boarding, no blackout dates and more.

Travel is in the air — sometimes literally, sometimes metaphorically. One thing this past year has taught us is to embrace the places and people we love and appreciate the little adventures of every day.
