Many times when we travel, we do not realize the little travel mistakes we may be making. These mistakes can slow our journey down or can even impact the smooth flow of our trip.
Best to prevent that now, what do you think?
Below are some travel mistakes you should definitely avoid.
Never miss the first leg of a connecting flight:
Do you know that if you miss the first leg of a connecting flight, the rest of the flight is automatically cancelled? Your ticket would be classified as a “no-show” and the rest of the journey would be automatically cancelled. However, what you can do is, contact the airline before hand to change your ticket.
Never pack your valuables in a checked bag:
Don’t do it. Things like jewels, certificates, cash, etc. do not put anything valuable into your checked luggage. Well, unless you are willing to accept the fact that it may get lost.
You need a universal charger adapter:
Different parts of the world have different charging systems. Hence, you need a universal charger adapter so that no matter where you go, you can always be able to charge up your devices without worries.
Never change your foreign currency at the airport:
The reason is simple enough. Airport currency exchanges know that you may be in a desperate position and so, they would be more than willing to overcharge you and give you terrible rates.
Always buy travel insurance:
Travel insurance always helps you cater for unexpected things especially health reasons. If you happen to fall ill in a foreign country, you may end up spending thousands of unavailable dollars out of pocket on incurred medical costs.
Turn off your data to avoid roaming charges:
Turning off your data when you land helps you avoid roaming charges. Also, speak to your cellphone provider about how to go about avoiding or reducing these costs to the barest minimum.
Ensure your passport is valid for more than 6 months:
Most countries require you to have at least 6 months on your passport before you can apply for a visa. This is called the six month validity rule. The six- month passport validity rule is enforced because nations do not want to risk having travelers and tourists overstaying their passport validity.
