1. Leave home healthy and rested.
Leaving exhausted and catching cold is an expensive mistake for any trip. The flight and jet lag make you vulnerable to catching a cold – a nuisance which will ruin the excitement of your expensive trip. So be healthy and rested before you leave for the travel destination. Enjoy the trip happily.
2. Pack light :
Try to pack light as much as possible . You can wear trousers/ jeans for 2-3 days in a row. The less you have to carry happier you will be traveling. Use covered luggage tags to avoid casual observation of your nationality and identity.
This tip is applicable to both men and women. Don’t carry all your shirts(tops) in the same shade. Micro stripes, fine checks etc on same color shades looks the same in a picture . Thus no one can differentiate these patterns in your pictures. So always vary the color scheme.
3. Always double check when you pack.
Make some different travel checklist for different tours, business tour, holidays etc. So accordingly you can verify the things while packing. First collect all the essentials you need to carry and then put them in a suitcase. This will make sure that everything you needed actually goes with you.
4. Ensure your passports’s valid .
Always check your passport expiry date before you book the trip. Some countries demand your passport to be valid for at least six months from arrival. Always check everyone is having valid passport for the trip before booking.
5. Always renew your passport beforehand
it will save the hassle and extra cash needed for urgent trip to the passport office.
6. Always carry a ‘Travel first aid kit’:
Always carry a small first aid kid having bandages, some pain killers(eg : ibuprofen), paracetamol, decongestant, hydrocortisone cream and your regular medicines if any.
7.Separate your money sources:
Don’t keep all your cards in your wallet. Also keep your wallet in front packet (especially with button) instead of back pocket to avoid pick pocketing. Best is use the middle pocket of your jacket. Opt for one good ‘ money belt’ which can wither hang inside your shirt or wrap around your waist(under your shirt) etc. Make sure it is waterproof as often traveling is a sweaty work.
8. Use ATMs rather than travelers checks.
You will get cash cheaper and faster though ATM charges some transaction fees ATM give the best rates possible. So to minimize these fees make larger and fewer withdrawals. Store the cash safely in your money belt.
9. Always pack a Hat:
Hat will always be useful to you be it summer or winter. Also it takes up little space so you can always keep it with you. In summer season it will keep the sun off your face and in winter , a knit hat will keep you warm.
10. Pack a reusable water bottle
that clips on to your bag. If it is collapsible it’s better. In most of the areas the bottled stuff cost a lot. So you can save a ton by having your own clean drinking water.
11. Beware of any warnings or travel alerts for your destination country before you plan travel.
Travel alerts gives you quick information regarding different threats, terrorist attacks or other short term conditions about the destination that could affect your plan and may pose some significant risk to you.
Better to stay away. So be careful of what is going on in the country that you are travelling to .
12. Select the bags with wheels:
Backpacks are always a good option but if you have heavy luggage bag prefer the one having wheel on it. They come very handy and easy to move on.
13. Don’t forget your camera charger:
Camera charger is one of the essentials you should never forget as camera battery may drain in no time. After all you don’t want to miss out next beautiful moments to be uncaptured!
14. Learn how to take a decent photos.
Don’t just come home with bunch of selfies. As memories fade and you will probably want something to remember the beautiful scenes by.
15. Never pack something that you haven’t worn before:
Always pack the things you have tried, worn before. Eg : you may find the new jacket very filmsy, your new shoes too uncomfortable. Also if you hate something to wear at home you will definitely hate it to wear on trip so better to avoid it for travel packing.
