Carefully Plan Your Itinerary
When travelling, itinerary planning is the one step you shouldn’t miss. The first thing to look out for if you want to cut back on travel expenses are flight deals. If possible, schedule your flight much later in the day so you don’t have to scramble out of bed to make it on time.
Compare airline prices and travel dates, and reserve the flights right away. Sites like Cheap-O-Air, Agoda and Expedia can help you with this. If you’re traveling with family, make reservations for a ride to the airport.
Leave Your House With Peace of Mind
If you’re leaving your house unattended while on vacation, look around and see what needs to be turned off. Clear your fridge of food that might expire while you’re out, and turn off your heating or air conditioning. Inspect your house for leaks and any appliances plugged in or running. Lastly, make sure to store your valuables in a secure place. Before leaving, tell your trusted contacts and loved ones about your itinerary schedule and destination.
Make A List, Check It Twice
Make a checklist of everything you’re going to need. As much as possible, pack light according your destination and the duration of your vacation. When packing, make room for your toiletries, chargers, and travel-aid kits. Also be mindful of TSA rules regarding liquids, gels or creams. Phones, travel documents, and medication should be stored in a secure place you can easily access. Travel comfort is also a must, so dress as comfortably as possible and bring travel pillows with you.
Even if you’re not a frequent flyer, it wouldn’t hurt to read about travel insurance and travel safety. This is a task usually reserved for when you’re planning your trip, but it is important to have a little refresher on the topic shortly before your flight. Once you’re packed and ready to go, take some time in the evening before your flight to double check everything. Fill your phone with emergency numbers, along with your accommodation and airline numbers. Install essential phone apps like language travel apps, maps, weather, hotel, and other accomodation apps. Download the VIP Taxi App for easy taxi booking and you’ll never be late for your flight.
Stay Calm And Alert
Be ready to greet holiday challenges with a positive outlook! While traveling, it is important to stay as calm as possible. Accept that some things just don’t go as planned, and be prepared for anything. Keep your lines open, pay attention to airport announcements and plan to deal with any delays.
These things are usually beyond your control, and it is best to just breathe in and breathe out slowly and deal with it with a level head.
