Whether making arrangements to travel by car, plane, or train, planning a recreational getaway can be very overwhelming to even the most seasoned traveler. Fortunately, there are millions of seasoned travelers who are willing to share their best travel tips and tricks to make the process more manageable and enjoyable for everyone.
When selecting a location to travel to, there is no better source of information than a fellow traveler. Other travelers with similar needs and plans, can tell you what destinations are must-sees and what areas you should try to avoid. No guidebook can replace the first-hand experience of another person or family.
If you’re running out of space in your luggage, try rolling up socks or stockings and stuffing them inside shoes. Anything you have that’s hollow – coffee mugs, shoes, boots, etc. – can be used to stuff things inside to give yourself a bit of extra room in your luggage.
Always pack comfortable shoes for any type of journey, and swap them out for more stylish ones only when necessary. Travel will almost always involve more walking than usual, from airports to train stations to long city blocks without your own automobile. Nothing will ruin a nice outing more than having miserable feet, so put comfort first, and save the fancy footware for shorter evening activities.
Try to find and wear clothing that has hidden pockets. Not only is this convenient for you because you have room to carry more items, but it is helpful for keeping things from thieves and pickpockets. They will never find your valuables in a hidden shirt, pants or jacket pocket.
Always arrive at the airport earlier than you are expected. You never can anticipate a traffic back up, long line at check in, or security delay. Any of these things could cause you to miss your flight if you are short on time. Best to be early and avoid problems.
Always check out a visitor’s center near your destination. They often have a lot of pamphlets on different attractions. A lot of these will even have coupons inside to get a discount. So not only will you find things to do, but you can save money while you do them!
If you are traveling with a baby, hide your valuables in the diaper bag. Most thieves will not think to steal your diaper bag first. If a thief does try to pick pocket your diaper bag, there are many pockets and so, your valuables can remain hidden.
If you are going to travel to another country you will need to get a passport. This can take some time so it is best to prepare in advance. You should be prepared to answer questions, bring in legal documents to prove who you are, and plan to wait a few weeks or more for the passport to be ready for you to travel with.
