School will be out soon, the weather is heating up, and you might find yourself looking at some summer getaways. But before you stuff your suitcase and lather on the sunscreen, you have to think about logistics. Where are you going? How are you getting there? And how will everything continue to run smoothly while you’re gone? 

Whether you’re looking at a month-long tropical stay or a simple hotel weekend to yourself, here’s how a personal assistant can help you prepare for your summer vacation and help you stay organized while you’re gone.

Book Hotel and Flight

First thing’s first—where are you staying? We all know how much time you can waste opening tab after tab of flight and accommodation sites. A personal assistant can sift through the seemingly endless online reviews for hotels and possible flights and present you with the best options under your specifications. 

Itinerary Planning 

Looking for activities to do while you’re on vacation? Making plans of things to do ahead of time is smart—after all, you want to make the most of your time away. Let your personal assistant research some exhilarating (or ultra-relaxing) events to add to your itinerary. 


Imagine your flight leaves early the next morning. You just realize all of your summer clothes are still in the attic and you are definitely running out of clean socks. This is where your personal assistant can come to the rescue. Personal assistants can take care of pre-vacation laundry, and retrieving some seasonally appropriate options out of storage so that you won’t be scrambling to pack the night before.

If you aren’t planning on taking your furry companions on summer vacation with you, you’re going to have to make sure they’re fed and not too lonely while you’re away. Ease your mind and hire a personal assistant to take your dogs on walks, play with your cats, and feed your fish while you’re enjoying some well-deserved rest and relaxation.

Package and Mail Pick-Up

Did you know that last year people reported approximately 210 million packages stolen off of front porches across the U.S.? If you don’t have a secure spot for mail and packages, a personal assistant can help you avoid being part of that statistic. They can drop by when you anticipate receiving packages and safely and securely store them in your home.

Lawn and Garden Care

Summer means soaking up the sun. While that may be the goal for your vacation, it can also wreck your lawn. Put your mind at ease! Hiring a personal assistant to keep up with lawn and garden care while you’re away. If your yard requires more attention than simply watering the plants, your personal assistant can be there for any scheduled landscaper or gardener appointment.
