Booking a holiday is a relatively simple process, it’s the other extras that pile on the workload!

Whilst you might think it’s just a case of flight, hotel, transfer, what you might be forgetting is the need for insurance, visas, currency, bank travel markers, vaccinations, or any other bits and bobs pertinent to your destination.

Stressful?

Yes!

One of the best ways to cut down on this is to do your research and planning well in advance. Write a list, tick it off one by one, and check any information as you go along. I always check my flight information online in the days leading to up to my departure, because this means less chance of a nasty surprise, and I know exactly where I need to be, and when.

It’s pays to be in control where travel plans are concerned, and this will have the knock on effect of chilling you out, making the whole thing easier and smoother, and you will enjoy your holiday from the moment you leave the house.

This is what it’s all about!

Despite that, we do need to look at a few little extras that are vitally important to any travel adventure, be it a holiday, business trip, or simply getting from A to B.

Insurance –

Never ever travel without insurance! This is one thing that just isn’t worth the risk, and for the low cost of a policy when compared to what you may have to pay in the event of a medical problem claim, then you will see just how important it is. Declare any pre-existing medical conditions, and make sure you take a copy of the number and policy paperwork with you.(Image by mytravlel insuranceadvice)

Visas –

You need to check on the official embassy website of the place you’re visiting to find out whether your particular nationality requires a visa to enter the country. In some cases this will be no, and in some cases it will be simply buying a sticker at the border gate, but there is a chance that you may have to apply either online or in person in good time of you travelling.

Money matters –

If you’re planning on using your credit or debit card overseas, it is always a good idea to inform your bank. If you use your cards and your bank are unaware of your movements, then there is a chance that your account could be blocked temporarily, and it’s a real pain in the neck to sort it out whilst overseas. Simply call your bank beforehand, tell them where you’re going, when, and how long for.

Currency –

Watching the exchange rate in the weeks, or even months, leading up to your departure will give you the best chance of jumping to change some money when the rate is more favorable. Find out what the general static rate is, and then watch for fluctuations.(Image by vxla)

Health matters –

Check whether you need any vaccinations for the place you’re planning on visiting, or anti-malaria medication, and check whether your regular vaccinations are up to date. Check that you have enough of your regular medications to last you for your stay.

Job done. Jet off and enjoy your holiday!
