Whether you are preparing to leave town by car, plane, or train, the information found in this handpicked selection of travel tips is sure to help you before you embark on your journey. The following advice will help you get started.
Are you traveling to a country that requires vaccinations? This can be a serious issue traveling from country to country, and even within regions of a single country. Without that paperwork, officials have no means of verifying that you’ve actually been vaccinated, and that can cause delays or even a quarantine.
Pack lightly when traveling. The less things you have with you, the less chance you will have of losing valuables or risking having them stolen. Pay attention to the number of shoes you bring, they tend to be large and heavy.
Bring a doorstop to your hotel room. They are small, easy to pack and they keep doors from opening.
Whenever you can, print online tickets in advance of your visit to a special event or attraction. Sometimes there is a ticket fee, but already having your ticket means you don’t have to stand in long lines, so the fee is totally worth it. If the park you are visiting has a timed entry, you can skip admission lines too.
Look at your alarm when you get to a hotel. You never know what the person who was staying there last might have had it set to. Don’t let this bother you on your first day in town!
Take clothespins when you travel. These are not typical travel gear, but they do come in handy.
Get a good workout in before leaving on a flight. This will not only help you to work out pre-flight jitters, it will also warm up your muscles to help you avoid cramps during a long flight. Not to mention the effects sitting for long time can have on your body. Stretching beforehand, or doing some quick warm-up routines can help keep aches and leg cramps at bay.
Before packing your bags, it is important to plan. This advice will assist you on any trip, no matter how big or small.
