Take a minimum of valuable items with you when you travel. Bringing too many valuable items on a trip just increases the chance that some of them will be lost or stolen.
Be sure to create a list for packing. Sometime well before your trip, at least a week or more, write down all of the items that you must pack. Even last minute packing won’t be as stressful, when you have a list to reference. It will also take the panic out of forgetting anything.
If the country to which you’re traveling requires certain vaccinations, make sure you carry with you the certificate stating you got the treatment. Without this certification, you may have a difficult time entering or living a country. With no certificate, there is no way to prove to the authorities that you have been vaccinated, and you could be quarantined.
Tip the staff at the hotel appropriately when you are staying at a hotel. An appropriate tip is considered $1 for each piece of luggage you have, and $2-$5 per day for the housekeeping service. Doing this will not only show that you appreciated the work they did, but it will also foster a good relationship with them.
Bring a book of matches or a business card of your motel with you while traveling about the city. If you are out on the streets of a foreign city and find yourself lost, this small item will be very useful when trying to get directions from a taxi driver or a local on the street. If you are unfamiliar with the language, this is really really helpful.
Hopefully, you can now set up a successful trip. You might even go someplace unexpected. Apply these tips to planning your travels and you will enjoy your trip. Get out now and start seeing the things you have missed all this time.
