Travel Safe on your Next Vacation

Are you ready for your next vacation?

With several places open now for business amid the COVID 19 pandemic. You may be considering taking a trip or vacation.
You’ve got the plane ticket, the hotel reservation, the itinerary and/or things to do. But have you given any thought or taken any steps to protect your health and safety? The worst thing that can happen is that you spend your vacation in a hospital— or bring home a weird, exotic virus aside from Covid-19 virus that has you bedridden for weeks.

You also want to avoid theft, mugging, or worst, terrorist attacks. Your resort may call itself an “island paradise” but let’s not be naïve and assume everyone is as friendly as they look in the brochures.

Be smart. Prepare, make informed decisions, especially if you’re traveling with your family. This vacation is supposed to be fun—and you can do your part by preventing most disasters.

1. Check Travel Advisories

Your embassy will list places that they recommend “caution” or right-out tell you to stay away from altogether. Be well informed of the Covid-19 advisories and /or could be a tense political situation, or a low level of security in underdeveloped areas.

But also take advisories with some degree of salt. You can safely assume that the capitals and major cities of a country will be more tourist friendly, since governments would’ve probably taken great efforts to develop them. The exception, of course, are countries going through civil war—in which case, read the international newspapers (or the web-version of their local English paper) to see how bad it really is.

2. Get Vaccinated

Check the travel health Information in your country or places where  you’re going

Some viruses that are relatively rare in your country may proliferate in the climate of another—and you don’t have the natural antibodies to fight them. Get the full range of vaccines (your embassy website will also recommend which ones you really need, depending on here you want to go).

3. Bring Medicines and Prescriptions

Ask your doctor for two copies of your prescriptions (carry one in your wallet, and leave one in your luggage). Also bring enough anti histamines (for allergies) or any maintenance vitamins or medications. Asthmatics should carry have a nebulizer—especially since attacks can be triggered by change in climate or physical exertion (you never know how much walking you’ll be doing during the tour).

4. Never Flaunt Your Valuables

Wearing your Rolex or flashing large amounts of money practically screams “Rob me!” to the pickpockets. Keep small bills and change in your belt bag for easy access (these are for entrance fees, cab fares, snacks). Keep larger bills in a zippered pocket. To be very safe, divide the money and distribute it among several pockets—at least, even if you do get robbed, you still have something left.

You can also have a luggage service deliver to your door/hotel to and from your itinerary

Another tip: bring only what you need for that day and leave the rest in the hotel safety deposit box.

5. Travel in Groups

This is an unfamiliar land, and you may not even speak the local language. So stick together (at least divide into pairs), especially at night.
Always observe social distancing and wear your masks.

6. Ask the Hotel Receptionist/Travel Agent Which Places to Avoid

Before exploring the area, get a list of places known for its crime rate, or streets that tend to get dark after a particular hour. Identify the areas on a map and avoid accordingly.

7. Tell the Hotel Receptionist Where You Are Going

This is very important if you are going skiing, hiking, golfing, or participating in any activity where there is a risk of getting lost or injured. Name how many people will be in your party and what time they can expect you. Then, they can alert authorities if you have not returned.

8. Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is an important but often overlooked part of your vacation. Whether you are traveling to a foreign country or to the next state you should consider travel insurance.

Have fun and travel safe!

Are You Paying Too Much For Your Travel Expenses?

Traveling involves so many issues like buying flight tickets, making hotel reservations, car rentals, etc., all of which are provided by thousands of vendors. While your budget might seem reasonable, are you sure you’re not paying too much? Some of these tips will help you make the best paying decisions so you can save more money than you can ever imagine.

You’re Using Your Regular Credit Card

Using a credit card to buy things when on vacation is easy and very simple, but it can also be very expensive. The thing is, credit card companies charge higher fees when you’re buying abroad, compared to when you’re at home. To avoid these expenses, look for a special credit card that provides good deals on overseas spending.

You Only Travel During High Seasons

Summer holidays are fun and interesting because you get to meet so many people and you’re ready to explore. You may love the crowd, the attention, and everything that comes with it but you could also be spending too much. Save yourself some cash by traveling during off-peak periods where businesses are fighting to attract patronage and the prices are low.

Saturday Is Your Best Day To Travel

You’re absolutely correct except that; everyone is also thinking in that same direction. Saturday is always very busy for airports so it is more expensive. You can save for yourself a lot of money by traveling during the weekdays, by checking your travel agent’s website to see how the prices compare. Weekday travels are always interesting and fun.

You Stay In Hotels

In most parts of the world, hotels are the ideal place to stay when you’re on a short trip or a long vacation. They provide you with everything you need and ensure you get the very best. They are also expensive and can make you spend more than you expect. If you are open to new ideas and adventure you could try staying in hostels, especially if you’re traveling to Europe. These hostels are clean, well-managed, and you can even get free food sometimes. You also interact more with the locals and get to know and understand them better.

Don’t Buy Individual Train And Bus Tickets

One of the fun time of traveling to other places is getting onto trains and buses to see the country. For most people, the natural option is to buy individual bus and train tickets, but this can become more expensive along the line. Why not ask the conductor for citywide tickets that can help save you some money and at the same time reduce the trouble of having to buy tickets all the time. Some of these train and bus companies also offer special discounts for students, disabled, veterans, and seniors. Ask them if they have this type of discount; you might fall into any of these categories and save even more money for yourself.

Saving money when traveling is not a hard thing to do at all. You only have to take note and pay attention, so you can see all of the opportunities available. Don’t just have a travel budget, find discounts, deals, and use coupons to save more. The best suggestion I can tell you where  to look for the best deals, visit
