6 things i wish i knew before starting travel
Travelling is the best way to reduce the boredom and an amazing way to broaden your horizons, meet interesting and new people, as well as discover what the world has to offer.
No doubt you may know what you have to pack, but there are few crucial things to consider that may make your travel or trip easier and more enjoyable. From money-saving tips to flat booking and to add adventure in your trip, we have collected the best traveller tips for tourists.
1. Invest in a Smart Baggage
Investing in a smart suitcase is the first thing that most travellers overlook. For instance, Bluesmart luggage bag is my favourite option when I come to packing for a trip. It boasts two handy USB ports, so you never need to hog the airport outlets ever again, and its inbuilt scale means that you won’t need to worry about your luggage being overweight. This also reduces the fear of losing your bag because you can track the location of the suitcase. Although the price is steep, the Bluesmart is worth every coin.
2. Book a Room Before Moving
I know many travellers don’t consider to book rooms to live before leaving their home. It is a great idea to reserve your place before leaving your country.
If I share my first trip’s experience, I enjoyed a lot, but the problem I faced was the residential issue. After landing, I visited almost five hotels to rent a room, but it was all in vain. At last, when I rented a room it broke my bank account. So I suggest you visit the websites that provide flats to rent to tourists at affordable rates as compared to local hotels.
Healthcare is one important thing that you should keep on priority in order to enjoy your trip. How can a sick person enjoy a trip? It will be helpful if you pack legal medicines with you. Visit your doctor for a regular checkup before leaving your home on a trip.
4. Hire Taxi Outside the Airport
Some people think taxi drivers who pick them from inside the airport are more reliable. It is actually better to walk outside the airport where you’ll get a better deal because they won’t have to pay the entrance fee.
One more thing your driver may not always know where your destination is. Make sure to double-check and ask someone else to confirm if there is any doubt.
5. Your Safety is Most Important
Don’t be afraid to be aware of your surroundings. Travel in groups, if possible, but definitely not alone at night.
6. Learn About the Culture and Language
When I say learn a language, it does mean you have to start taking classes. Just learn a bit of language in order to know how you can thank local people, order food and other basics. Whether you’re fluent are not natives will appreciate your effort.
