Use these tips for stress-free travel this summer holiday.
If you have a summer holiday planned, you’re not alone. Plenty of Americans take advantage of the season by jet-setting to foreign lands for the perfect respite. Active travel offers a great way of discovering the world, stimulating both the mind and the body. However, a simple hiccup is all it takes to derail your plans, crumbling your entire journey.
Whether you’re heading out on the road, taking to the skies, or traveling by train, here is key advice that you need to know to ensure a smooth and stress-free journey.
The more time you allow yourself to plan your trip, the better. Book your hotel well in advance, print off your airplane tickets, and get your car checked up before hitting the road for a trip! Once plans are set, create an itinerary. Print off your plans and email a copy to yourself and those you’ll be visiting.
Know what time your flights are.
It may sound like the most obvious travel advice, but it’s amazing how many people are late for flights – and miss them altogether! Print off your tickets, check in online, and always get to the airport with plenty of time to spare. That’s what Duty-Free is for, right?
Make a detailed list of everything that you’ll need to bring. If you’re heading to the slopes, remember all the appropriate attire. If you’re going to a tropical island, pack plenty of sunscreen lotion and your camera. Don’t forget all-important IDs, medication, and cash (in the right currency).
You may feel surrounded by fast food during your travels because it’s quick and cheap. However, these foods will only slow you down and can hinder your health. Boost your immunity naturally with superfoods and supplements like vitamin C. Nothing adds stress to travel like the flu will.
Research your location.
Find out the customs in the foreign city that you’ll be visiting. Always research the common topics, gestures, and customs to avoid in every location.
