Don't Get Lost! How To Plan Out Your Trip Ahead Of Time

How To Protect Yourself When Traveling Overseas When you take time to create a good travel plan, it really does pay off. You have saved a lot of money by planning out things like transportation, so that you can enjoy your vacation with a little extra cash in your pocket. Like with any plan, you can always add and improve. Below are some tips to help. Look online, before buying a travel guidebook. Much of the information available in expensive guidebooks is also free online. You can print out this information and carry it with you, saving both money and weight in your baggage. This method also allows you to pick and choose which pieces of information are vital for you, and only carry those. When planning a road trip, don't forget to budget for the cost of fuel. While many other costs can be easily calculated in advance, the cost of gas is more difficult to figure, and can also add up surprisingly quickly. Online gas calculators can show you where the cheapest prices are and help you get an idea of what you'll be spending. The advice "don't drink the water" if you travel to a foreign country is, unfortunately, accurate. You can also have intestinal upsets any time you drink water from a place other than where you live, even in the U.S. That's because the bacterial flora that live in your gut (intestinal tract) are very sensitive to the composition of your own water, in your own area. It takes them a while to get used to water from elsewhere, and in the meantime, they want to push that unfamiliar water right through. So until you get used to the local water, wherever you are, sip slowly or stick with bottled H20. Do some comparison shopping, before booking any vacations. Make sure you're getting a good deal on your flight and hotel by looking at the prices of several websites. Check the price of several days in the same week if you don't need to leave or return from your trip on an exact day. One might be cheaper. Bring a tackle box and use it to store your valuables if you are taking a cruise. Most thieves are only interested in what they can quickly get and find out with. They probably will not think to look in a tackle box for valuables. The cost of stopping for meals every few hours will add up, especially for a family, even though long driving trips can be fun and economical. If you are planning a longish car trip, make sure you have plenty of car food available in advance. Will get you to your destination sooner, though you may be able to get away with skipping the hourlong lunch stop, which will not only save you money. If you have a second adult in the car, that person can serve as "lunchmaker," handing around sandwiches, cutting fruit, and making sure everybody gets their midday meal on the road. Make sure you check your credit card statement after you stay at a hotel. Even if your bill is correct when you pay at check out, extra fees may find their way into your payment. Sometimes rooms get charges twice by accident or another guest's expenses will get put on your account. If this happens, call the hotel's billing department right away. Bring a walkie talkie wherever you go if you and a group of family or friends are traveling by car. In order to work properly, cell phones need to have a cell tower. Walkie talkies only need each other, making them more beneficial than the phones when you are traveling in rural areas that might not have cell phone coverage. Convert your money a few days before your scheduled departure. Also, confirm with your bank or credit card holder that your cards can be used when you're traveling to a foreign country. It's also helpful to let them know that you will be traveling so they won't "deny" a foreign transaction. Have some traveler checks on hand that can be used internationally as well. If you are traveling in a car, bring a roadside geology book with you. They have a variety of maps, mileage logs and geologic primers that will make your trip a little more interesting. They also contain beautiful collections of photographs that will make the scenery around you come to life. Make sure to read plenty of reviews from different sources about your travel destination. Don't book any vacations before checking different websites and travel books and making sure that other travelers had positive experiences with yourairline and hotel, cruise line, or any other service that you use when you travel.

Check out the restaurants in the area and their reviews, and see if you can find gift certificates to help you save money while eating out on vacation. Bring something that is difficult to get outside of your own country if you want to be able to barter overseas. Bourbon is a great example for Americans. American Bourbon is nearly impossible to find outside of the United States, so much so that other countries will pay you double the original cost. If you plan on making a road trip at night, make sure you take shifts. Trying to drive long distances at night is very dangerous because you may fall asleep at the wheel. Try taking shifts with someone else to prevent that from happening. Make sure that you bring an actual map on your car trip. Don't just rely on a talking GPS navigational system. Sometimes these make mistakes and a mistake could cost you a lot of time that could be used for enjoying your trip. Always bring a physical map to double-check your navigational system. Stay healthy while traveling by remembering not to overwork yourself. Travel itself can be a strain on your body so make sure you aren't scheduling in activities for every waking moment of your trip. Include ample down time when trip planning so you can recharge your batteries and stay at your peak for the duration of your travels. Pack solid shampoo powder and bars toothpaste. Though this might not be what you normally use, it can add to the convenience factor when traveling. Avoiding liquids will make your trip through security easier.
