Fun Travel Tips That Will Make You Want To Get On The Road Again

IMPORTANT! If you have a choice when booking flights for travel, select an airline that uses primarily 767 jets. These larger jets have more legroom, and offer more direct flights because they can stay in the air longer.

You may have fond memories of a trip you took during childhood with your family. Travel, at that time, was an unfolding of wondrous discovery. It can be so again. Use the Internet to find places to visit. Ask friends for recommendations. Check with your family members. Try one or more of the suggestions offered to you here.

IMPORTANT! Instead of putting your liquids in a plastic bag to prevent them from leaking, try unscrewing the lid and putting a piece of plastic from a grocery bag over the top and screwing the lid on over it. While a zip-lock bag will prevent spills from ruining things, this method will prevent things from spilling in the first place.

If you are worried about safety, carry a fake wallet. If you are traveling through a rough area, take precautions and carry a spare wallet with a few token dollars in it. In the off chance you do get accosted, you can hand over the fake wallet and your real valuables will remain safe.

IMPORTANT! Remember to report lost tickets immediately. Lost tickets can be refunded, but this can take as long as six months.

Don’t over-schedule your vacation. While it is important to plan some activities, especially ones which require tickets or additional travel, leave yourself plenty of free time. There is no better way to see a location than to just wander around. Take the time to explore and see where you end up.

IMPORTANT! Sometimes by choosing multiple means of travel one can get the best of everything. For example by taking a plane somewhere and renting a car when you arrive, one can get the benefits of a quick flight as well as the benefits of having a car to go wherever wanted while traveling.

Be respectful and patient towards security checkpoints and customs officials. In most cases, these exist for your safety. If not, being upset still won’t help you get through any faster. In fact, making a fuss at the security checkpoint is almost always a ticket to the express lane for the extra search.

IMPORTANT! A car’s tires should be checked before any major road travel. This includes, not only a visual inspection for leaks and flatness, but a full pressure check.

Split up clothes between bags when traveling. When traveling with more than one person, split your clothes between your respective suitcases. There is a chance you might lose a bag during your trip. If a bag is lost, having the clothes split up ensures than everyone will have at least one change of outfit available to them.

IMPORTANT! Participate in loyalty programs if you are a frequent traveler. You may not anticipate being able to cash in, but these programs often accumulate faster than you realize.

The airport is often the most stressful part of the travel experience. Travelers and airline employees alike are tense, worried and feel alone. The frequent traveler keeps these facts in mind and makes allowances for the stressful surroundings. Remember that everyone in an airport shares a common goal: To get to their destination safely and as quickly as practically possible.

IMPORTANT! Label everything with your information. If you have chargers, power strips, keys, or anything other small items that tend to get lost, put your contact information on it.

Have you ever thought of traveling overseas? You might want to hold on to your traveling plans for awhile and go to farther and distant lands. Instead of taking two trips a year you can manage go on one trip for a year. Just make sure you keep an eye out for deals because you might get a really good deal on hotel and flight tickets.

IMPORTANT! Bring a power strip along with you when you go out of the country. This may seem like a silly idea to some, but if you have a room with two outlets and you have two cell phones, two laptops and an MP3 player that needs recharging, what are you going to do? Having a power strip prevents these dilemmas and also, you will only need to buy one adapter for foreign plugs.

Keep track of your important belongings when traveling. If you have a purse, keep it close to your body with your arm on it at all times. Do not use bags with zippers that provide easy access to people near you that could easily take your stuff. Carefully evaluate your bags for security risks when choosing one for traveling.

IMPORTANT! Before making firm travel plans call the hotel you are considering, and find out when it was built or last renovated. A low-budget facility can be a great place to stay if it is brand new, while a high class hotel can be a miserable experience for you if it is very old.

Drive through windows at fast food places almost inevitably give you too much or too little sugar or other sweetener when you order coffee or tea. When traveling, don’t throw the extra away! Tuck into a baggie or maybe a little tin and keep it for the next time you are shorted. It sure beats having to turn around and go back through the drive through!

IMPORTANT! If you are traveling on a cruise ship, consider departing from a “drive-up port”. This option saves you money, but you might have trouble parking.

If you are staying at a hotel that offers a mini-bar in your room, consider asking the front desk staff to hold the key instead. This will help you avoid late-night temptations, which given the prices at the minibar can get very expensive. If you feel the need for a drink but don’t want to go far, go to the hotel restaurant instead.

Planning carefully and implementing certain tips can help you rekindle your pleasure in traveling. These tips should help you tremendously in your travel adventures.
