Whether you are traveling by boat, plane, car, there are lots of things to think about taking a trip. Get out your notepad and get ready to write these tips down, because I’m about to tell you how you can take a great trip without the headaches.
Be aware of scams that attempt to prey on unwary travelers. In many areas of the world, it is safest to assume that anyone begging for money could be a pickpocket. Don’t ever show or hand over your wallet to anyone, even if they claim to be police officers.
When traveling, even in developed nations, always assume your hands are dirty. Don’t put your fingers in your mouth and avoid eating with your hands. There is a good chance to come into contact with thousands of surfaces which could be carrying a disease that you aren’t prepared for.
Traveling light can make the difference between a great vacation and a tortuous experience. Think about it. Don’t take it with you, buy it there. There are exceptions of course but even with those just a little bit of thought while packing can greatly reduce your load and make your trip much more enjoyable.
If you are going on extended monthly vacation , it might be worth to stop cable fees and other utilities. Make sure to inform other services you subscribe to, such as pool cleaning or housekeeping while you’re away. Doing all of these things, ensure that you will have a worry-free vacation.
When making hotel reservations, be certain to ask about any renovation work or nearby construction. You do not want to awake to the sounds of construction while on vacation. The hotel staff is powerless about such noise, so your best bet is just avoiding potential construction dates altogether.
If a hotel charges for internet access, ask for a room on a lower floor. Sometimes you will get lucky and be able to snag wireless capabilities from nearby cafes or lobbies. The bottom floor is the best to be able to do this, but it is not unheard of to be able to reach it from the second floor.
If you know in advance that you will be passing through some less-than-desirable neighborhoods or areas of town en route to your destination, don’t rely solely on your in-dash GPS system. Map out alternate routes using Google Maps, so you don’t end up in a bad part of town, in the middle of the night, with bad directions.
