Finding the Best Travel Tips and Information
Travel can be one of the most stressful parts of life, but also one of the most rewarding. Being prepared and knowing what to expect on the road, at sea or in the air is essential to having a good trip. Read on to discover some knowledge that you can use to make good memories away from home.
When traveling by air, sometimes the airline will give out booties or slippers to passengers to encourage them to take off their shoes and relax for the flight. At the end of the flight, instead of leaving the booties behind, take them with you and use them as shoe covers for the shoes in your baggage. Covering your shoes won’t dirty the other items in your suitcase. It’s one small way to get the most out of your costly flight.
If you must pack an expensive jewelry piece when traveling, keep it in the hotel safe when you reach your destination. Only remove the piece to wear it for a special occasion. Also, make sure the piece is insured. This will provide you with valuable security and peace of mind.
Tip your hotel service personnel. A small tip can make the greatest difference in your stay. If you do not tip, the maid who services your room may feel slighted by the lack of financial gratitude and this could lead to the neglect of your room as well as the supply of soaps and shampoos. Your luggage carrier, when properly paid, could suggest the great spots around town.
A lot of hotels offer discounted rates to locals, especially during the off-season. If you’re going somewhere where you have family or friends, you should have them ask for a local discount. If there is one, you can have them book the hotel for you and save yourself some money!
If you are traveling in a poor country, consider purchasing a large woven sack, like the type used to transport potatoes or other vegetables. Put your bag into this sack, and it is protected from dust, bugs, and moisture. It also nicely camouflages your possessions against thieves, as they will see a bag of farm goods instead of a tourist’s bag.
Traveling on long international flights can be strenuous, especially when jet lag sets in. To help yourself avoid this, plan for a flight that arrives in your desired destination in the morning around the time you would generally be waking up. Once on the flight, take a couple Tylenol PM to put you to sleep (especially after the in-flight meal!) and rest easy all the way to your destination. Wake up feeling refreshed and ready to greet the day!
When you take a flight, be sure to carry a bag on-board with you with the essentials that you could not live without, such as your prescription medicines, CPAP machine, glasses, diabetes medications and extra clothes. If you placed these important items in luggage and checked the luggage at the airport, there is a chance the luggage may get lost. Just pack an overnight bag with the important items you need and take it onboard with you to avoid lost luggage.
