Travel should be easy and effortless, but often times it isn’t. Many people make a lot of very small mistakes that can have big consequences in the end and I thought that rather than you making these small mistakes I could simply let you know what they are so you don’t have to go through the hard times of travel. Hopefully you enjoy, so read on to find out more.
Taking an airport transfer
There is nothing worse than traveling to a new country or city and having no idea how to get from the airport to your final destination. The answer is, of course, an airport transfer! I am very fond of these because after a long flight you don’t want to be sitting on a bus with 50 other people and then having to look after your bags. You are probably hungry and tired too, so the situation becomes stressful. Public transport is also slow, especially to and from airports. Taking a great professional car service, like Blacklane, is a great way to take a lot of stress out of reaching your final destination. You simply walk out of the airport to be greeted by your drive, and then you get on your way, it is as simple as that.
Check your passport
Ensuring that you have at least 6 months eligibility on your passport before you leave is something that you absolutely must do. In a number of countries they will not allow you to enter if you do not meet this basic requirement. This is also very useful if you decide to extend your trip and go to some other wonderful places (which I would highly recommend).
Bring only what you need
This is something that many people struggle with, but in all honesty it is a very simple concept: don’t bring what you don’t need. How do you determine what you do and don’t need? It is very simple, write down a few things about your destination, such as the weather, activities that you will do or where you will be staying. Then you can decide what is important and what is not and every holiday is going to vary slightly. A good example of this is backpacking in Europe, you simply aren’t going to need a whole bunch of formal shirts, one will most likely be enough!
Book in advance
One thing that people fail to do regularly is to book well in advance. If you can afford to book now, why would you want to book later? Flights, generally speaking, tend to get more expensive as time goes on. The less you spend on this and accommodation, the more that you will have to enjoy your holiday. Don’t wait, book!
