Will You Need a Travel Visa?
Some countries won’t allow visitors unless they have a valid visa. Check if there are any visa requirements.
This way, you won’t have any trouble with border security. It will take some time to get a visa, so give yourself a couple of months.
Make sure your passport is valid as well. Most countries want you to have a passport that’s valid for six months.
Don’t Forget About Travel Insurance
When you travel internationally or domestically, invest in travel insurance. Travel insurance is essential for travelers. Some credit cards will also come with travel insurance.
Make sure you read the fine print about the coverage. Medical costs abroad are expensive. Most travel insurance will cover the theft of personal items.
Research and find the type of travel insurance that suits your needs.
Tell Your Bank About Your Travel Plans
Call your bank before you leave. Let them know about your travel plans. Your credit card won’t get blocked.
Get some cash in local currency. If you have a credit card, you don’t want to get stuck in a new country without access to money.
Do You Have an Airport Transfer?
Organize an airport transfer at least two days before you leave. Check that all your booking details are in order. Look for updates from your transfer company.
You’ll also want to make sure you’ve organized where you’ll leave your vehicle. Look into offsite parking.
Consider Checking in Online
Save time and lower stress by checking into your flight online. You’ll need to download your boarding pass. Skip the lines and head to security if you’re only traveling with your carry-on.
Print Copies of All Your Essential Documents
Make sure you print or take photos of your travel documents. Also, you’ll want to make copies of your driving license, passport, and more, in case you lose your wallet.
You should leave copies with a family member and in your luggage.
Bring Your Tickets and Passport
Some people arrive at the airport and realize they left their passport in the photocopier or at home.
Check that you have your boarding passes, passport, and any other important documents. If you’re traveling with your family, make everyone double-check that they have their passports.
