Hi, welcome back to JR World Travel. Where we talk all things travel, Woo! Today we have a quick but a very good article, that one of you suggested. What are the top five mistakes that people make when they travel. And let me tell you it was very hard to choose just five because people make a lot of mistakes when they travel. I’ve made a lot of mistakes when I travel. Hence I can tell you how to prevent them. Here are my picks. Number one, and this is an obvious one but it happens time and time, and time again. People! Print out your ticket or make a photo copy! Or email it to yourself.
Or download the app from the cruise line or airline and have the ticket on your phone. Why would you stand in line to check in? I don’t get it. I don’t get it. And if you have luggage, you check in, and then you just go straight to the express line. You leave your bags and that’s it. That’s it! Number two, and this also has to do with ticketing and stuff. Not having a hard copy of your reservations, and by hard copy I don’t necessarily mean printed. I just mean that you don’t have to use your data to access it. Because what happens if your phone can’t connect for some reason or something, and then you don’t remember the name of your hotel, you don’t remember the number of your reservation. You know, you need these things handy. Period. Number three is my favorite and one that I am here in this world to eradicate, and that is over packing. No more over packing people! How many times are you gonna pack an entire bag full of a 100 outfits, and come back home having worn like three. No more. No more! Number four, and this is a good one my friends. This has happened to me.
You need to check your visa requirements if you are traveling to a country that requires one. I don’t care where your from. You might be from the greatest country in the world. There is a country that requires for you to get a visa. So check that out before you go and it out in quite a bit in advance because it’s hard to get a visa. Also check the requirements that your expiration date in your passport needs to have, because some countries requires that you have six months validity in your passport. I know, I’ve been there. I’ve not been allowed to get on a plane because my passport did not have six months validity. So make sure that you check that out. And number five implies saving a lot of money.
You need to check your phone plan or ensure that you can connect to wifi and make wifi calls!
if you’re going to travel abroad. Because let me tell you a lot of people have come back to find a bill of 500 and 600 bucks. And that ain’t pretty. And that ain’t fair. And that is super easy to avoid. So if you’re gonna travel abroad make sure you check to see what your plan is. What your data plan is and adjust accordingly, and act accordingly wherever it is that you go. Alright, there you have it, you have been warned. Safe travels.
Next notify your banks that you are traveling so you can use your debit card or credit cards while on vacation and traveling!
