Ready to begin with your own travel plan? Do you know where to start or how to begin? Do you know what will work for you and your budget? If you have no clue how to answer these last couple questions, the expert travel advice points are listed below are for you.
- Missed luggage and/or connections can mean you arrive at a hotel late at night, with only the clothes on your back to wear the next day. If you are a woman traveling overnight on business, be sure that the blouses and underthings you wear and bring can be washed in the sink and hung up or blow-dried. Lightweight, wrinkle-free polyester or microfiber blouses and tops can be washed and hung up, and will be dry in the morning, as will all your lingerie.
- Pack an extra bag for dirty clothes. No one wants to pack their dirty unmentionables in with all their nice things. Pack a small, collapsible bag to pack dirty clothes in for the return trip. Alternatively, bring a garbage bag. You can wrap dirty clothes in the garbage bag to keep them separate from everything else.
- Check out alternative places to stay. You don’t always have to stay in a hotel to feel great on vacation. There are many “house-swapping” sites available, which allow you to stay in someone’s vacant home. Try looking for cabins or bed and breakfasts. Alternate lodging can be some of the most interesting and fun parts of vacationing, so be sure to check it out! You can also take the help of your chauffeur driven car hire company or the driver himself for any such reliable place to live in.
- If you have allergies to cats, dogs or even dust, you should bring your allergy medicine along with you on the plane. People tend to bring their animals along on flights. Even if the animal isn’t accompanying them on the trip, they still have pet dander on their clothes.
- You can help make your vacation less stressful by packing lightly for your trip. Try to keep all the items you will need in one bag while this may seem impossible, it can be done if you are careful about what you include. Packing lightly means that there are fewer things for you to keep up with, and worry about, while you are enjoying your trip.
- Traveling with a group? Work to compromise on where to eat and where to go. If you decide to be selfish, the rest of the group will resent you for causing them to have a bad time. By compromising, everyone is happy at some point and you are forced to try and experience new things.
- If you are packing for a cruise, don’t buy anything new for the trip. This is because most cruises today will allow you to remain in casual clothes even for dinner, and almost never require that you dress in black-tie formal wear. Whatever you currently own is most likely acceptable for the trip.
- While traveling, do not bully your body into believing you will be sick no matter what. If you suffer from motion sickness, then worrying will only exacerbate the problem. Additional stress should be avoided while traveling. Stress can lower your immune system. Try not to let delays, crying children, or your own imagination get the best of your temper.
- Searching for travel deals? Do not jump on the first package you find! There are some that will save you money. However, there are also some that will end up costing you more than it would if you would take the time and book everything individually break down the cost. Do some online shopping to compare before you buy!
- When packing clothes for your trips, only pack what you know you will need. If your trips are over three weeks, you should plan on having to wash while at your destinations. Regardless, you can cut back on clothes by packing ones that are multi-purpose, such as clothing that can be used for day wear and sleepwear.
- Always allow yourself extra time when deciding to go on a road trip. You never know when things like weather conditions and unexpected detours may put a damper on your “good timing” hopes. You also never know when some cool attraction might just be there along the way, so make some time to enjoy your journey to your destination.
- Most flights that are long and include meals have options for a kids’ meal if you request for a children’s meal before you get on the flight. This is particularly useful if your kids are picky and would much rather enjoy chicken fingers instead of steamed vegetables for their meals.
- When travelling, make sure to stay safe and prepared by obtaining travel insurance. At the very least, you will want health insurance in the event that you are hospitalized or need to be evacuated back to your home country. It is also a good idea to have insurance related to any adventure activities that you may be participating in.
