Traveling requires a lot of preparation and here are a few travel tips that help you have a smooth experience.
1. Confirmation of travel
Make sure that your tickets and all the other documents are cross-checked with authorities for confirmation and have a backup copy of them in case you lose it.
Avoid carrying a lot of cash when you travel and also have some backup money in your suitcase or a bag in case you lose your wallet.
3. Travel light
If you want to make your holiday a wonderful experience do not carry lot of baggage, you are there to unwind and not to look great or work.
If you are going to a destination for the first time then you better do a research of the place by asking people who have already been there or search for reviews on the internet. And also have a close look at the map so you know where you need to be headed.
5. Keeping in touch
No one wants to get disturbed while on holiday but always make it a point to inform someone about your whereabouts so if anything goes wrong you can be tracked.
6. Don’t go out with strangers
This may sound like a mommy’s advice – In real it is not safe to trust a stranger when you are not on your turf, it can lead to a dreadful ending
If you have a medical condition where you need to take medication on a regular basis, first check with your doctor and carry them along with other generic medicines like painkillers.
8. Try out the local cuisine
If you eat food that you eat at home then there is no point going on a holiday. A holiday is all about experiencing something new. So go on and savour the local cuisine.
9. Be offline
Try not to switch your laptop and smart phone on and going online because that would end in getting you worried about the situation back home and the entire holiday can go down the drain
When holidaying in unknown destination always use public transport to travel around as it is safer and there is also a very little chance of getting conned or getting in trouble.
Make sure wherever you are traveling you have some kind of identity proof so that when something goes wrong you can be identified.
Make sure the hotel you are staying is safe and is a legal hotel; always ask receipt of your booking and have it with you at all times.
