You simply cannot plan for everything. However, keeping a few important things in mind will make your travels much easier.  Some travel mishaps can be avoided if you plan properly and some of them are just a part of traveling. Below are 6 travel tips to help ease travelling. 

  • Be Flexible. We always plan for delays and try not to get upset when things inevitably go wrong. Patience is extremely important when traveling. I just keep saying the phrase ” Its not the destination its the Journey that is important!”
  • Make a List. About a week or so before each trip, make a mental list of items you don’t want to forget. Then a few days before you leave , sit, and review your list. Confirm you have all you need.
  • Always Buy Travel Insurance. A medical emergency can wipe out your savings so endeavor to get travel insurance before your journey. 
  • Make Photocopies of Important Documents. Always carry photocopies of important documents such as your passport when travelling. I try to keep 2 copies. One taped between 2 hidden pages in my sketch book, and the other in my money belt. 
  • Alert Your Bank and Credit Card Company of Your Travel Plans. This is a great habit to get into if you don’t want your credit card company or bank to put a hold on your card while you are overseas. Trust me, call your bank!!! Nothing is more stressful then to be in a strange land and not have any way to access your funds or having to work out international calls. 
  • Book Early for Cheap Flights. Flights are always the first thing to book when planning a trip. You can do this nearly a year in advance. For the most part, the earlier you book, the better price you will get.

I hope you found these 6 travel tips for travel useful in your trip prep!
