Everyone get unlimited fun and fantastic experience in abroad traveling. You will get chance to share your feeling with new people, build social network, knowing history about that places and recharge mind. But you may get frustrating or confusing if lose luggage, difficult to understand foreign language, foreign currency and disease problems.
In this article I am going to focus some important travel tips.
Luggage – Your first travel tip should be luggage, always carry light as possible but your luggage must carry your essential items. Backpack is ideal choice, you can use any where. Carry on essentials medicines or other health items, a spare shirt, socks and pair of underwear.
Reaching and leaving airport is a headache for anyone because of too tight security and many regulations and rules, it means looking here & there and question asking. Obviously security people speak foreign language like English. English is considered as international travel language. Knowing English language and local language is very essential.
I will suggest you to know little bit foreign country cultures and local people way of taking that particular country you want to travel. Sometimes you may face food problems if you are planning staying in tourist restaurants. Please and Thank you, up and down, and yes and no are also essential in many places. It isn’t hard and locals will work with you a lot more if you try.
Before flying to abroad getting foreign currency knowledge is essentials or else you will lose lot of money. Getting information is not difficulty or you can know from local people. Best idea is withdraw cash from bank, bank always give bills. Most of places accept US currency but does not provide bills. To get bills you need to exchange money above $20US.
Budget Traveler – First, if possible, plan as far in advance as you can. Airplane tickets first go on sale one year from the date they are for, that is when they are cheapest. The price then usually rises until they are either sold out or no one is buying and the price suddenly drops. Most airlines will give a rebate if that happens.
With hotels you have three options, search on-line for the cheapest price, book early and ask for the cheapest rate available or wait until the last minute and find somewhere trying to fill empty rooms! The first is the most reliable, but the room may not be much. The second requires long range planning, and the third requires luck mixed with negotiation. If the places are all booked you may end up with either nothing or an expensive room!
For food on a budget during travel, think shops for lunch and snacks and ask around for small, local places for dinner. For breakfast, check out the local bakery or ask if there is a free fruit bar, many hotels have them.
As for drinks, if you are trying to budget your travel, do not use the in-room bar, go to the nearest store! Even if it means a taxi it will be cheaper than paying restocking fees for your in-room refreshments. One can generally get a six pack for the price of a single drink. While at the shop or store buy snacks such as chips or nuts, unless they come free with the room!
A simple tip is that whenever possible, pay cash rather than credit card or room charge, and ask for a discount. You should get as room charges add 10-20% to the vendor’s fees or a credit card adds 5%, plus the people frequently have to wait for their money. On activities in the Caribbean, cash automatically gets a 10% discount at most establishments. You also don’t get gratuities added if you don’t want them.
Your abroad traveling can be fun, excitements and free feel traveling if you obey above travel tips strictly.
