When you travel, it could be for pleasure of business, preparation makes all trips more enjoyable. The following techniques will help a lot.
It’s important to plan ahead when traveling by air. Airports are often located near large cities, and reaching them during peak traffic times of the day can take much longer then you might expect. Have your luggage packed the night before. Before your travel day, make sure all of your preparations are taken care of. You do not want to miss your flight.
Bring a good digital camera for the vacation that you are taking. Do not bring a rechargeable battery if you cannot charge it anywhere. This will save you a lot of time and hassle on your trip.
If you are planning a hotel stay, especially in an area that is less safe, pack a doorstop in with your belongings. Most people use doorstops to prop their doors open, but you can also use them to hold a door shut.
Always remember to tip housekeepers and bellboys. For these services, a good tip for housekeeping would be from $2-$5 per day, and $1 per bag of luggage. Tipping the staff will make sure that you receive good service while you are visiting.
The shoes you wear when you go flying should be comfortable, lightweight, and easy to take off and put on. You are required to take them off when going through security checks. When traveling, comfort is everything. On planes and in airports, you will walk a little but sit a lot, so heavy-duty support is not necessary. Flip-flops or slip-on shoes are recommended for air travel.
When you are taking a long trip but traveling light, bring a soft-lined raincoat. The weather could be tumultuous, wherever you go. With its multi-use, a raincoat can be a windbreaker in cool weather and even a bathrobe after a shower in the hotel room.
If traveling with children, bring a cookie sheet. They can be used to make flat surfaces for playing cards or a surface for coloring books. If your kids are small, bring magnetic numbers and letter for some educational fun.
Be sure to reserve space for your car if you must store it at the airport while you are away. If you book parking on the day of your flight it will usually be much more expensive. If you live close to the airport you may want to take a taxi instead of paying for parking.
If you have booked a hotel room, don’t forget to pack some travel candles. The candle will make the room smell better and feel more like home. Try a scent like lavender if you have problems sleeping in a strange place. The scent is believed to help people relax. Many candles now come in small sizes, and wax that melts away instead of creating a waxy drip.
