If you’re looking for useful travel tips, which are suitable for all travelers, you’ve come to the right place!
6 Travel tips for everyone:
1. Wear sunscreen every day
In some parts of the world, even if it’s not hot or sunny, you may get burnt. So it’s a great idea to get into the habit of applying sunscreen on a daily basis when you travel.
Also, make sure to apply sunscreen if you embark on a ski trip as sunlight reflecting off snow can actually cause sunburn.
2. Pack earplugs and a sleep mask every time you travel
Earplugs are essential if you want to sleep on a plane, train or bus. Or end up sleeping in a hotel which is located in a noisy part of town. While a sleep mask is also handy if you want to enjoy quality sleep on your long haul flights.
3. Travel with more than one debit card or credit card
In the event that one of your banks puts a block on your debit card or credit card, thinking that your card was stolen and used overseas, it’s a great idea to travel with more than one debit or credit card. So that you’ll never be caught without a form of payment, whilst you’re traveling abroad!
4. Carry emergency cash in your daypack
It’s well worth carrying a bit of spare local cash in your daypack, in the event of an emergency or if you want to eat or shop at an establishment which doesn’t offer credit card facilities. As electronic forms of payments are not as readily used in remote parts of the world, where cash is definitely still king.
5. Keep your cool, when things don’t go to plan
As not everything will go to plan, when you travel, remember to keep your cool and to remember that the little misadventures which you’ll face are part of travel and will make great stories when you get home.
6. Make sure to make a note of the address of your accommodation, when you travel
When you enter a new country you may need to write down the address of your intended accommodation on your arrival card. So it pays to make sure to jot down the address of your accommodation, in full, on a piece of paper or on a note on your phone.
So if you’re an avid traveler, it’s well worth trying to remember all six travel tips listed above.
