Leave most of your items of value at home. You stand a good chance of losing one of your valuables if you bring too many.
Keep written notes of key information if you are traveling abroad. You should have your embassy’s phone number, address and website if available, for any country you travel to. This is your first point of contact if an issue arises. They have much experience with the issues travelers face, and they’ll help.
When traveling by airplane, it is important that you think ahead. Airports located in large, unfamiliar cities can be difficult to find. The traffic around airports can also create serious delays. Make sure to have your luggage packed and waiting on the night before you leave. Prepare yourself well before the flight. Missing your flight can be a very devastating experience.
Look for a hotel that offers free parking and stay the night before leaving from a port city, on a cruise. Ask the hotel’s staff when it comes to parking deals even though none are published.
Check your hotel alarm when you get there. Some travelers find themselves awakened at three or four in the morning by alarm clocks that the previous occupant of the room set. In order to start your vacation in a relaxing fashion, make sure to shut the alarm off or is set to a time when you actually want to get up.
Take a couple of clothespins with you when you travel. They can be very useful.
