You finally have a few days off and the moment you have been longing for has arrived: to go on a trip.
Surely, you will have already decided on the destination, that is why we leave you these eleven travel tips for traveling:
1-GET A POWER BANK | ONE OF THE TIPS TO TRAVEL THAT SAVE YOU
On your trip, you will be all day taking photos and recording incredible videos. However, of course, the mobile battery is not eternal. For this reason, carry a power bank in your backpack, that is, an external battery that allows you to charge your devices on the go. They are cheap, and you can save yourself in more than one hurry
2- IF YOU ARE TRAVELING TO A COUNTRY WHERE YOU REQUIRE A VISA AND/OR SOME TYPE OF VACCINE
Ask for your visa well in advance, in case any problem arises (the same with vaccines).
3- BANK CARD FOR TRAVELERS | AVOID BLOCKS AND CHARGES!
Before embarking on your adventure, enable your bank card to use it abroad. If you do not notify your bank that you will be abroad, they can block it for “out of the ordinary” use or apply fear charges.
4- LOOK AT THE WEATHER FORECAST
Thinking that, because it is summer, it will not be cold or taking for granted, for example, that it always rains in London... lest you later have to run to buy clothes because you have not checked before what the weather is going to be like in the destiny.
5- CALL OR SEND AN EMAIL TO THE ACCOMMODATION WHERE YOU ARE GOING TO STAY.
Contact the reserved accommodation days before travelling. Do not trust that the email they have sent you tells you that everything is confirmed. Any problem with the reservation may arise.
6- PACK YOUR SUITCASE WITH WHAT YOU NEED | LEAVE THE “JUST IN CASE” BEHIND
Think carefully about what you are going to put in your suitcase! Take into account that the lighter you travel, the more you save on documentation costs. For this reason, it also distributes your clothes between hand luggage and checked luggage. Try rolling it up so it takes up less space and does not wrinkle.
7- CHANGE FOREIGN CURRENCY.
As advice to change money when you travel to a foreign country, we will tell you never to do it at the airport or station. Change is very bad. Generally, the best place to exchange money is at the destination and at the city's exchange offices.
8- LEAVE IMPORTANT DOCUMENTATION IN THE ACCOMMODATION
It is best to take photocopies of all the documents with you and leave the originals in a safe place, -safe, well hidden in a suitcase, etc.-, in order to avoid problems and unexpected visits to the consulate or embassy.
9- CONTRACT A TRAVEL INSURANCE
We believe that it is the best advice for a trip that we can give you. When we go on a trip, we think about enjoying and living new experiences and not about something happening to us, but so that you have your back well covered, we recommend that you always take out travel insurance.
10-SEPARATE THE MONEY | A LITTLE HERE, A LITTLE THERE
There are countries that are safer than others are, but it is always advisable to be cautious. One of the tips to travel that you should keep in mind is to keep the money you take distributed in several places.
For example, put some cash in your wallet, some in your suitcase, and some more in the secret pocket of your jacket. In this way, you will avoid that in the event of a loss or theft, you are left without any money.
11- GO TO THE STATION ON TIME.
Most companies recommend being at the us station between 30 minutes and one hour before departure. Although it seems silly, being a good time earlier than recommended can save us from any unforeseen event.
In addition, being the first has a great advantage: if there are no previously assigned seats, being able to choose the most comfortable seat is a luxury.
