					Free And Easy Travel Tips And Tricks

Are you going somewhere? One of the best things you can possibly do to have a great trip, whether
you're traveling for business, family matters or simple enjoyment, is to get educated about traveling
well. Even the experienced traveler still has something left to learn, so here are some tips for you to try.

Know your destination airport's three digit code. Your luggage will be labeled with tags that have this
code on it, and that determines where your bags will go. If you know your destination code, you can
make sure that the skycap labels your bags appropriately. This can help you to avoid lost bags, or delays
in receiving your belongings.

When traveling, bring only the essentials and keep your bags light. The fewer items you carry, the less
possibility of valuable items becoming lost or getting stolen. Limit the pairs of shoes you carry, as they
are often the largest and heaviest items you will be bringing on your trip.

When traveling, never take an item from someone to transport it for them. No matter their situation or
how nice they may seem, this is almost always a trap to convince an unwary tourist to transport drugs or
other contraband into secure areas. Even "gifts" can fall into this category.

When driving or taking a plane with a toddler, it is important to have enough interesting things with you
to occupy your toddler during the long trip. Try to bring some of your child's favorite toys. It is also nice
to purchase at least one new toy for the trip, since this will be a complete novelty and will keep your
little one's attention, for a longer period of time.

If you are traveling and wear glasses, do not hesitate to bring a spare pair. Make sure it is a pair with a
strong frame and preferably unbreakable lenses. In the event that you do not have a spare pair and time
does not permit, get a copy of your prescription and order them at your destination when you arrive or
if needed.

Try to pack light when travelling. The last thing you want to be doing when is lugging heavy bags and
suitcases through airport terminals and onto buses and trains. Only pack items that you are sure you will
need and think about which items you could buy at your destination.

When you are traveling, you can do a few things to save money at home. First of all, turn the air
conditioner off or just down. Next, turn off the sprinklers. It will also help to put your lights on timers.
And last, but not least, unplug your major appliances.

If you are traveling to a country that may have people hostel to American citizens try to blend in. Do not
draw attention to yourself by wearing clothing that may give away the fact that you are an American. It
is much safer for people to think you are a Canadian or European.

It's always time well spent to insure you have critical items with you on your trip. Make a list and check
it twice! If the item that you have forgotten in your irreplaceable medicine or perhaps some critical
piece of electronics, however, you're in trouble! Plan ahead to insure this doesn't happen to you!
Knowing what you know now, you're better equipped to tackle a trip to any place you want to go. Being
a shrewd traveler is the heart of creating a great travel experience for yourself and anyone you travel
with. The preparation and knowledge you bring with you go a long way toward having an amazing trip.
