Travelling smart, travel safe! Join us as we examine 10 Dos and Don’ts of Traveling Abroad!
Travelling abroad can be one of the best times of your life, or among the worst times of your life based on what you do while elsewhere. Join us today as we provide you with 10 Do’s and Don’ts of Traveling Abroad!
1. DO Photocopy Your Passport
Carrying around a copy of your passport (the page with your photo along with other relevant information) is a must when travelling overseas, just in case your passport is lost or damaged.
2. DON’T Pay For Lodging By Wire Transfer Or Cash
Always pay using a credit card to get stats abroad, no matter what type of discount you are offered. You do not need to end up without a paper trail and stuck without a place to stay thousands of miles from home.
3. DO Use Your Room Safe
Leaving valuable out in the open is a wrong thought. Whenever you leave your room, make sure to utilise your room’s safe, but don’t forget the passcode!
4. DON’T Let Your Phone Roam
Nothing is worse than returning home to see a cell phone bill that is astronomical. Be sure to either contact your provider for an overseas plan or use it through WiFi.
5. DO Try New Foods
Don’t be one of those travellers who is scared to eat new things. Try something new!
6. DON’T Talk Politics
Not every country is a free country, rather than every society is tolerant of free speech. Have fun but keep politics out of your talks while on vacation.
7. DO Check Out The Culture
Your interests might not lie in seeing artworks and performances. I’m languages that you can’t know, but experiencing culture in a foreign land is an extremely eye-opening and fun experience.
8. DON’T Spend Too Much Time In Your Room
You may be jet-lagged, you might be homesick, but sitting around will not assist any of it. Get out there and have fun!
9. DO Pack Layers
Weather can change rapidly when you’re researching new lands, and finding correctly fitting clothes when in foreign states may be harder than you expect.
10. DON’T Do Drugs
Do not bring them with you, don’t accept them from friends or family or strangers, don’t even talk about them. Many overseas countries are stringent in regards to drugs, and you could end up in a big big problem.
