Everything You Need To Know To Travel Smart

Going On A Trip? Use These Tips For Easy Travel No matter how recreational your trip is and where you go, traveling can be lots of fun and highly stressful. This advice can give you some insight that can help you get more out of your next trip. If you are touring Europe, take advantage of their outstanding rail system. Instead of flying to each of your destinations, only fly into your first city and then hop on the train. Not only is it much more affordable, but by traveling overland, you are sure to get an amazing look at the area beyond your major city stops. Make a portable washing machine with a plastic bag. Save money by skipping expensive coin-operated dryers and washers when you travel by using a do-it-yourself tip. Find or pack a sturdy and large plastic bag, and add a little laundry soap and water. Put your clothes in the bag, and shake. Drain the soapy water and repeat the process with clean water, then hang the clothes to dry. When you travel, it's important to stop for the cheese as well as the big-time monuments. What that means is this: Go to Mt. Rushmore, sure. But first, you need to stop at the Jolly Green Giant Statue in Minnesota and get your picture taken. You need to actually go see the Corn Palace inSD and Mitchell, and Wall Drug. These places are kitschy, and that's exactly why they're essential. America is both a place of great beauty and great silliness, and both should be celebrated by the traveler. When considering travel insurance for an upcoming trip, be sure to compare rates of providers, not forgetting to check with your credit card companies. Many times they may provide these benefits to you at a cheaper price. They may cover items such as lost luggage or trip cancellation. However, these benefits are not usually found with base-level cards. Make sure to pack your vitamins when you travel and remember that vitamin C is a great energy and immune booster. Taking a vitamin supplement can help you prevent or lessen the effects of jet lag on your body, strengthen your immune system against the multitude of germs you will come into contact with, and generally make you feel better. Clear any supplements with your doctor before taking them if you have underlying health issues. You should always arrive early to the airport when you are flying. It is so much less stressful knowing that you are checked through and in security with time to spare. Before the flight starts boarding, it will give you time to use the restroom or grab a snack. Losing your rental car in large parking lots is no fun. Carry one of those fluorescent foam balls that fit over the tip of your antenna or maybe even a colorful ribbon to tie to the rear view mirror. They take up no room in your luggage and can sure make locating that car a whole lot easier when there are exactly 37 others that look just like it in the same row where you parked! Scan your passport and email a copy to yourself. In the chance that you lose your passport during your travels, this will be a lifesaver, though it rarely happens. Getting a replacement passport can be a headache and having a copy can make the process much faster and less traumatic. Camping is a great way to see the country, or even the world, on a budget. Instead of springing for expensive hotels, look for camping sites along the way of your trip. Many of them have amenities like plumbed bathrooms and showers. If staying in a hotel, you can even avoid having to cook by continuing to eat out, as you would. Always try the local cuisine when you visit a new destination. Part of a country or localities lifestyle and culture is in the food. You can't completely experience these places without trying all that their food has to offer. Seek out the experience of locals and ask for their favorite dinner and lunch spots, then make several of those must-do's of your list. When making travel hotel accommodations make sure you call ahead and actually speak to someone at the hotel. If they allow pets and if they charge extra fees for pets, ask about their pet policy to find out. This enables you to choose a hotel that fits well for you whether you are traveling with pets or allergic to pets. To avoid high exchange rates in foreign countries, stop at an ATM for your bank when you disembark from your flight. Large banks get much better exchange rates than an individual, so pulling money out once you get there is a hassle-free and inexpensive way to get the currency you need. Try to schedule layovers that are a minimum of two hours. While direct or nonstop flights should be your first choice, sometimes a layover is inevitable. You may slightly increase your travel time, but you will also be less likely to miss a connecting flight if there is a delay, by scheduling a long layover. Be very careful of sending text messages while traveling. While roaming charges within your home country are becoming less common, do not make the mistake of assuming your 'unlimited texting' plan is valid abroad and check with your phone company. Many travelers have come home from vacation to find an unexpectedly large phone bill waiting for them due to overseas usage fees. Find out which vaccinations are needed in order to go to the country in which you are traveling to. Without these vaccinations, you may not be allowed to enter. Also, try to get these vaccinations far in advance of your trip, just in case you happen to have a reaction to it. A general mistake that many travelers make on vacation is doing too much. Vacations are about getting and relaxing away from the rush of the everyday world. Planning events that encompass most hours of the day will leave you feeling tired, stressed and rushed while on your trip. Stop and relax for a couple of hours everyday to decompress. If you are traveling to a foreign country or nationality for a business meeting or negotiations, you should conduct extensive research on the economic, political, and business climate of your destination. Different countries have very different expectations for the way that businessmeetings and greetings, and operations should be conducted. A great traveling tip that can save you a lot of money is to write to people when you're going on a cruise. A lot of cruise ships will charge you an arm and a leg for using their Internet or phone service. You can avoid those high charges charges just by writing to people, and people love getting postcards from afar.
