On this page I will be sharing the tips I have learned over the traveling we did. Some of them I wish I had known about them before I started traveling. Hope they find you helpful in your journey! Happy Traveling!
Be prepared for your trip is the most important part about taking a vacation. Know where you are going and do your research! The more you know the more fun that you will have! Happy Traveling!
Explore everything your location has to offer. Learn the culture, Taste the different foods and Take it all in! Happy Traveling!
Make sure you do tours! Doing tours allows you to go places and see what your location has to offer. They also come with a tour guide to learn more about where you are going. Happy Traveling!
Alway keep your passport locked in the safe in your hotel room or somewhere it is going to be safe. You don’t want to be out and it get stolen from you. Then you have to go to the embassy. Keep the second passport picture with you because if you do lose passport they charge you a lot for the picture in other countries! Happy Traveling!
I book my tours in advanced before we go….That way I know what I’m doing. Usually you can cancel 24hrs beforehand if weather gets bad and you can get some kind of refund. Or if by chance you have some complaint about the tour you might be able to get a refund. You can buy tours when go there or maybe do a timeshare tour to get a activity. Anyway you go get out there and take one! Happy Traveling!
If you live your life on a budget like most of us do…like I do, I book my trip in stages and give yourself at least 6 months to budget if working with a bigger family like me! I do each stage about 2 months apart from each other to be able to save up for the next stage.
Stage #1 Book resort and Location
Stage #2 Book Airline Tickets
Stage #3 Book Tours
Stage #4 Save Spending Money
Stage #5 Enjoy your Vacation
If you do it this way it doesn’t hurt your pocket all at once. Happy Traveling!
Print out all Tickets and Confirmations for all tours, rentals and airline tickets. That way if there is any questions about your reservations you have your print outs. Sometimes reservations get lost and I found that out personally but if I hadn’t had my confirmation we probably would not of been able to go on our tour. I did though and we were able to go! We even got a upgrade for free for the troubles. Happy Traveling!
Stay Organized! I keep a folder that has all my confirmations and tickets in them so I know where everything is. I also keep a day to day schedule to know what we do everyday! Sometimes you either get so relaxed or just lost of time that you may forget what you scheduled to do. Happy Traveling!
Always get to the airport On-Time. When I say On-Time they usually they like you at the airport:
2hrs. ahead of time for International
1hr. ahead of time for Domestic
Don’t take the chance of being late because they will not hold the plane for you. Happy Traveling!
