some travel tips.


  • Interview people who have already visited their destination on what they know about security and the country's culture and customs. Check with a travel agent or research about customs and culture in the areas you visit.Bring appropriate identification documents. Check the expiry date of your passport and make sure it will not expire before returning home. Expiry date requirements may vary depending on the destination chosen. Check with the Passport Office in your area. Check if there is no special or additional document, such as a visa, to travel to the country visited.
  • Prepare a route outlining where you will be each day and night. Provide as much detail as possible. Give a copy of the itinerary to the designated emergency contact at home and at work if traveling on business. Take note of the customer's contact information on the spot if it is a business trip.
  • Make photocopies of your passport and visa and store them separately from originals and other travel documents. Keep a list of their different bank or credit card numbers, as well as the numbers of the services to be contacted in case of loss or theft. Keep a copy of these documents and numbers at home or at work and another on yourself. Bring a small amount of money in local currency to cover the expenses of the first days. In most countries it is possible to withdraw other cash with a debit card.
  • Call your financial institution and credit card company to find out if you need to inform them of their intention to use their debit and credit cards abroad. Keep your passport , your airline tickets, extra money and other documents in the hotel safe.
