Take a road trip, and if you’re renting a vehicle, choose an Electric Vehicle (EV)
The lure of the open road has seen a renaissance. Road trips are a great way to stay in your bubble while being mobile. Many adventure seekers and luxury travellers are now trading in fast-paced jet-setting experiences for road trips in comfort and style. Those renting vehicles are progressively choosing to rent an EV (Electric Vehicle), not only for the obvious savings on fuel but also for the fun experience electric cars offer.
If you’re planning a road trip in a rental car, renting an EV brings with it a whole set of exciting experiences. Car and truck rental companies are rapidly expanding their fleets to offer a range of electric car and truck rentals to their consumers, and the same is true for the ever-expanding network or electric vehicle chargers. Electric vehicles are more comfortable, super fun to drive, and a great way to explore. If you’ve never experienced one, we highly recommend you experience the joy of travelling in an EV.
Newfoundland has a surprisingly large network of EV chargers, many of which are free to use. This means you can spend more of your money on things you like instead of buying gas. You can use the Plug Share app to easily find free electric vehicle chargers in your area and Plan Your Route on the Newfoundland Hydro Electric Vehicle page.
Did you know Whale House Guest House has a Free EV Charging Station? Now you can charge your electric vehicle for free while exploring the East Coast Trail, eating at Fork Restaurant, and checking out the Witless Bay Marine Ecological Reserve.
Choose contactless self check-in, private suites, and private outdoor entrances
When choosing 2022 Newfoundland Vacation accommodation, pick a spot that’s private and just for you. Newfoundland Boutique Hotels and Guesthouses with contactless check-in, private entrances directly to the outdoors, and amenities that are just for you, like a hot tub on your own private deck, offer you the freedom to do your own thing.
Consiegere service and packed hotel lobbies are increasingly falling out of favour and being replaced by online reservations and contactless digital check-in experiences that let you show up, enjoy, and leave all without having to sign forms, exchange keys, and swipe credit cards.
Spend time with the people you want knowing you have a private and exclusive space that’s just for you.

Make eating and adventure
Food is a big part of our lives. It’s a way we connect with others and explore new cultures and tastes. Oftentimes, when the food is great, everything else goes well too.
There’s something really satisfying about enjoying a world-class meal with a friend or discovering a new and delicious dish you never even knew was a thing. Food is important, so when planning a Newfoundland Staycation, be sure to do some planning around what you’re going to eat. Cooking is always an option, but the best Newfoundland boutique hotels and guesthouses are close to restaurant options offering both dine-in and take-out.
Even if you plan on cooking, it’s always a relief knowing take-out is just a phone call away in the instance you want to skip cooking and just soak in the hot tub while you wait for your food to arrive.
Plan to do something outside your comfort zone
It’s always nice to explore new places and try new things. Going outside our comfort zone and doing stuff we’ve never done before is a great way to explore new things, discover new experiences, and learn something along the way.
It doesn’t mean you need to push the limits by doing something that makes you feel totally uncomfortable, but feeling a little excitement is healthy, and a good staycation adventure incorporates a dose of excitement into the fun and games. This can be something like trying new food, experiencing a new activity, visiting a new place for the first time. We’re all explorers at heart, so go ahead and make a bold move. You may be surprised at just how good it makes you feel.
Make health and wellness part of the fun
Being healthy and feeling good go hand in hand. Centring your staycation around a healthy mind, body, and spirit will make you feel fantastic long after you return home. Make a point of being kind and gentle to yourself and take this opportunity to both disconnect and reconnect. Consider changing your routine a little during your winter staycation by doing things like not checking your phone for the first hour of your morning and just enjoying a cup of coffee in silence.
Try out that new meditation app you keep saying you will make time for but never do, allow yourself to spend the afternoon just relaxing without guilt. Read in the hot tub, go for a snowshoe on the east coast trail, and do something that’s truly just for you. You may find doing so will bring you the best ideas and epiphanies that have been waiting for you to create an opportunity to let them bubble to the surface.
