For the most part, don’t bother with the duty free shops. They can be great places to kill some time browsing some books or checking out the latest fragrances by celebrities, but the products are usually very expensive. Don’t waste your money buying that box of high-end chocolates in the duty free shop because you will be able to find it elsewhere cheaper.
Be honest when taking out travel insurance. If you are ill, be sure to let your provider know about it. If your illness becomes worse during your travels the company is sure to deny your claim as a pre-existing condition. You will be left with the bill to pay on your own.
When taking a flight, a lot of passengers enjoy having an aisle seat so that they can easily get up and walk around or go to the bathroom. Once you find your aisle seat and put away your carry-on bag, locate the nearest bathroom and go, if possible, before the plane departs from the gate. Sometimes, there is a long delay before the aircraft can take off and at this time, you won’t be able to move about the aircraft.
Avoid shady characters when you travel. This cannot be stressed enough when traveling out of the country. You do not know how much you stick out as a tourist and many unscrupulous characters can spot you a mile away. Avoid eye contact and try to look like you know what you are doing and where you are going at all times to remain safe.
Replace the lock on your luggage with a combination lock. Many pieces of luggage come with locks and keys. Keys get lost. Not that it matters. The locks are so cheaply made, they can be broken right off. It would not be a bad idea to discard them entirely and replace them with a sturdier combination lock.
Plan out your budget prior to your trip and do your best to stick to it. Don’t bring extra cash with you “just in case” because that just in case will become an extra added souvenir that you just couldn’t leave without. Have some safety money set aside in case of an emergency, but keep in mind that it is just for emergencies!
Try to eat something very mild during the meal prior to your plane ride. You don’t want to feel nauseous or have to use the bathroom numerous times during the flight. A piece of toast for breakfast or a cup of soup for lunch would be a great option.
Always pack a map when you travel, even if you have a GPS system. GPS systems are not always reliable. If it were to malfunction or become broken, you would be lost. A highlighter can be helpful as well, allowing you to mark your map for easy reference. As a bonus, your well-used and marked up map, makes an excellent memento to remember your trip by.
Don’t fold your clothes when you pack – roll them. Rolling your clothes into tight cylinders is much more space efficient when packing a suitcase. You will be able to fit more items in your suitcase, which is very important now that airlines charge hefty fees for each bag checked.
Hopefully, these tips have provided you with some very valuable information, as well as given you a way to organize all of the thoughts and information you may have already had on traveling. Keeping these tips in mind when you start traveling can help you enjoy more of your trip.
