With the new year already upon us, many of you may be wondering where the next 12 months will take you.
But as well as planning the next sunshine escape, it's a time for reflection too.
That's why Which? Travel's experts are sharing the most important lessons they learned in 2019, from avoiding Clacton-on-Sea to staying healthy on planes:
TripAdvisor is a great resource for finding hotel rooms, but in 2020 be wary of reviews that seem too good to be true.
The UK's second-biggest hotel chain was reprimanded after TripAdvisor removed a number of questionable reviews from its site.
The budget brand isn't nearly cheap enough to lure us for an overnight stay anytime soon.
Britannia was rated the worst UK hotel chain for the seventh year running, mustering just one star in most categories - including cleanliness.
Don't fork out for overpriced insurance at the rental desk - no matter how much pressure the agent piles on.
If we want to stay germ-free for our holidays, we'll avoid Ryanair.
The no-frills carrier was named the dirtiest flight operator in the UK following a Which? Travel survey, with one in four passengers rating its cleanliness as 'poor'.
That's why we recommend carrying a hand sanitiser gel on flights and wiping down the tray table before eating.
Disappointed flyers captured their culinary lows on camera, fromNorwegian Air's 'chicken slop' to shrivelled mushrooms and congealed white pudding on Ryanair.
Needless to say we'll be flying with our own sandwiches from now on.
Unless you want extra legroom, don't waste your money pre-booking seats when you fly.
Of those who refused to pay extra, 86% were seated together anyway.
However, Ryanair was the most likelycarrierto split passengers up.
We've all seen those prompts on booking sites that claim a hotel will sell out soon.
In one case, 34 rooms were still up for grabs at a London hotel - 10 of which were almost identical and cheaper in price than the 'last room' listed.
That's despite the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) taking enforcement action against some of the industry's biggest players to end pressure selling and misleading claims.
The Essex resort came bottom when we asked Which? members to rate nearly 100 seaside towns and villages in the UK.
It scored just one star for the quality of its scenery and attractions.
