Planning and Preparing for a Great Travel Getaway


Travelling can be very critical. Your dream vacation could be ruin with just one wrong move.



Yes, planning and preparing for a great escape can be stressful. In fact, this is the most crucial stage of every getaway. A perfect holiday vacation starts with the right planning and preparation. Packing of clothes, preparing documents, hotel reservation and plane tickets are just some of the long list important things you need to deal with. With just one click, your dream vacation can turn into the worst nightmare of your life. If you do not want this to happen, it is necessary to know the trick and treats of a smooth travel.



                        Planning Tips







It is essential to have a plan. First, you must know the difference between direct and nonstop flights. Let us start with direct flights. This type involves one or more stop over to allow passengers in and out. While nonstop flights go directly to your destination, so this is more preferable.

Make sure that when you buy a ticket, the name that appears is the exact name on your ID. Do not use any nickname as desk agent and security officer do not accept them. This can cause trouble on your flight.

It is always advisable to select your seat ASAP. If you are traveling with a person with disability, it is much better to tell your agent ahead of time to reserve a seat for them. If you have the opportunity, always choose the sit near the window.

Always check for the foreign document requirements. Some countries require a visa for entry. While other places like South Africa will not allow you to enter unless your passport contains at least two blank, unstamped pages. You need to be aware of such requirements before you make your flight reservation if you do not want to be stuck stateside.



                         Packing Tips







  • Do not pack too much clothes. Bring only what you need. Instead of folding, you can just roll your clothes to save space and time in packing.

  •  Put all your toiletries inside a clear pouch, this can prevent them from messing up with your clean clothes.

  •  Always fill dead space.

  • Do not forget your daily supplement and vitamins. Place it inside a zip lock bag to reduce bottle bulk.

  • Bring extra plastic bag for your laundry.

  • Keep your shoes and footwear inside a plastic bag. This will prevent the dirt from transferring on your clothes.

  • Put glass items like perfume inside a sock to avoid it from breaking.



                              Airport Tips






  • Do not ever forget about your airport code. It is easy for luggage-destination tags to be mixed at a curbside check-in. Learn the three-letter airport   code for your destination and make sure your skycap labels the bag properly.

  • Avoid shopping at Duty free shops. Not everything here is a bargain. Before buying a botlle of perfume, find out how much it cost in local department store first.

  • Never forget to ask. If you are having a hard time looking for Terminal C, you can always ask an employee. For sure, he knows everything inside   the airport.



                             Flying Tips





  • If you are travelling with your kids, do not forget to bring car seat. They are safer for children and can help them calm done since they used to sitting here.

  • Pack all your small must have (gums, nuts and book) inside a resalable bag where you can put beside your seat.

  • Do not hesitate to call for help when you need one.

  • Avoid using mobile phone during your flight.


      Do not ruin your travel, plan ahead.
