What are the benefits of being a smart traveller?
Although it might seem that traveling is all fun, it is far more than that. Safety, budgeting, transportation and directions are all important considerations for travelers. While life may seem like an adventure, traveling is something you need to plan in order to get the best out of it.
Being a smart traveller is crucial. Follow these travel tips to avoid mishaps, lost routes, injuries, non-compliance with documentation, inconvenience, and many other problems. Here are some travel tips to help you become a smarter traveller.
Get Smarter Travellers: Travel Trips
Be sure to keep all important documents with you
Many vacationers are afraid of the D-word. But, they are essential for our own safety and well-being. Passports are required for travel to hotels, airports, railways, or immigration. These documents include tickets, booking confirmations, IDs, passports, visas, and tickets.
Your holiday could be cancelled if you fail to have all the necessary documents. You will be ready for anything if you’re diligent about completing the paperwork.
Remember all the Timings (Please!)
You will often check the timings for train, flight or any other event only once. It’s not a major issue until it is too late. Then, you reach the airport 30 min after the correct time and miss your flight.
You don’t want to end up like that. You can always recheck your ticket, especially the last day before departure. One of the most important aspects of smart travel is being certain about accurate timings.
Many travellers book their accommodation, forget about the details, and when they get to the hotel they discover that the booking is not confirmed due to technical difficulties. This will prevent you from making costly mistakes. You will have proof that you booked.
Be sure to wear the appropriate clothing
There are many people who travel with more clothing than necessary. Some go beyond the concept of ‘travel light’. Smart travellers know what they should carry. For 3 days of travel, ensure you have enough clean clothes to last you the whole trip.
A winter jacket/hoodie should be limited to 3-4 pairs. There is no need to pack too many inners, as they will be concealed in winter. You can wash your clothes less often in colder weather.
Get to Know the Transport Options
You must decide whether to use public transport or a cab/hotel-provided driver service as a smart traveller. Sometimes you might need a mixture of both. You should research the options and speak with the hotel about public transportation. Do not hesitate to ask for assistance at the help desk.
Keep your phone charged
While this may sound trivial, smart travelers understand that it can be a problem if you travel to unknown places. Smartphones can now be used to search for transport and attractions as well as calling maps.
An uncharged phone can make it easy for you to lose your phone and be unable to find the right place or even get to the hotel. You should always make sure that your phone is charged 100% before you leave. Always have a powerbank with you.
Many times, when packing, you accidentally pack prohibited items into your luggage or carry-on bag. This is especially important when traveling. This is especially important when you’re flying.
Never drink (except in your bedroom)
It’s fun to get drunk in Goa, Lonavala and other places. But once you are done, you will find yourself at a police station, or removed from your hotel. Always drink alcohol in moderation.
Your own bedroom is the best place to go to sleep, even if you don’t make any mess. You shouldn’t drink/consume/carry alcohol/intoxicants in areas where it is illegal. It is not your goal to be in jail.
