                                              traveling. In the following article, you are going to be
                                              given advice that could save you from having a
                                              horror story of your own.

                                               A useful tip for travelers is to make certain to have
                                               sufficient health insurance in place to cover medical
                                               expenses in case of injury or illness while abroad. It
                                               is often the case that domestic health insurance
                                               policies do not provide extensive coverage for
treatment and hospitalization in foreign countries. Therefore, it is important to procure such
coverage for the entire duration of your trip.

Be sure to acquire travel insurance prior to taking a big trip, especially if your vacation is in a
foreign country or includes adventurous activities. It is better to be safe than sorry when it comes
to your health. Travel insurance can cover you for any medical evaluations, issues or procedures
necessary while you are traveling.

When taking a cruise, your health should be your number one priority. Before you depart, speak
with your doctor about the trip you are planning on taking and any extra medication you may
need. Let your doctor know the ports your cruise ship will visit and all modes of transportation you
may encounter. Your doctor can offer advice on where you can obtain medical care as well as
where you can get a prescription filled in an emergency.

If you're traveling to a foreign country, look into hiring a guide that speaks English to take you
around the city. For about $15-20 a day, you can get a local that speaks English well to show you
all the must sees, help you navigate the area, and even just help you with things like ordering
food or reading signs.

For any trip, experienced travelers will pack some clothes they can clean themselves with
minimum effort. Not only do easily-cleanable clothes reduce the overall amount of clothing a
traveler has to take along, they can provide a comfortable safety net in the event of unplanned
delays. Clothing that can be rinsed and dried in a hotel sink can be a godsend on an unexpected
layover.
To keep yourself safe during your hotel stay, request a room on the first or second floor. In the
case of a fire, you'll safely be able to exit your room from the preordained fire exits or the window.
While hotel fires are fairly uncommon, this will make sure you're protected if the worst does occur.

When taking a road trip, naturally you're going to pass things that look interesting that someone
in the car may one to stop and see. But you can't always stop at every interesting spot or your trip
would never end. Instead, give each member a "Stop Card." This way if something comes up that
they want to stop and see, they can use their card, and the entire family can stop, no questions
asked. You can decide how many each person gets, depending on how much time you have.

While traveling, request peppermint tea or bring some along for your own use. Pack along some
peppermint lozenges or candies. Peppermint is soothing and can help settle an upset stomach
due to new culinary delights or motion sickness. In a pinch, it can also act as a breath freshener if
you are caught out in the wild without a toothbrush or run out of toothpaste.

Be willing to learn about new cultures and people. Do not take narrow-minded ideas on your
travels. You will be meeting and interacting with a wide range of people and they may have very
different ideas than you have. If you are judgmental, you will likely miss much of the beauty of
your destination.

Pack your toiletries into a Zip-lock bag. You will need to do this to get through airline security and
it is sure to save you some space in your baggage as well. It will take up less room than the
typical toiletry bag and it will help avoid a mess in your luggage if anything was to spill during
travel.

Pay with Euros! The American dollar does not hold nearly as much strength and prestige as it
used to, so trade in for a Euro to get the best treatment. You should still carry some American
dollars for tipping, because in many countries they are difficult to find, and are considered
souvenirs rather than spending money.

Perform a bag check before you leave your house to avoid any scenes at the security gate. You
will want to take out anything with a sharp point. You do not want to lose out on a pair of your
favorite nail scissors to the security officer. This will make things quicker and save you the loss.

Traveling to foreign lands can be fun, but make sure you don't go at it alone. A good piece of
advice is not to travel alone. Many people tend to get caught up in the wonders of being a tourist,
but forget that the locals may not be as kind as they think they are. The world is vast and not
everyone is nice. Traveling with someone else or going as a group, prevents you from being the
target of the next crime.

Now that you're equipped with all the tips in this article, you will have much less confusion while
planning exciting trips. Fellow travelers will admire your resourcefulness as you demonstrate
your awareness of any obstacles and then deftly conquer them. Applying these tips to your
journeys will result in a relaxing, worry-free escape.
