Many people think that the most difficult part of going on holiday is selecting the destination and booking the accommodation. While this is an important part of it all, there is a lot more that goes into planning a holiday. In addition to location and budget, you also need to decide when you want to go and for how long, how you plan on getting there, and how to bring it all to ensure a hassle-free trip. And let’s not forget any COVID-19 requirements and restrictions.
To help you along, we have compiled a list of some helpful tips to get you started.
Tips For Your Next Adventure
Reverse into the parking
Wherever you choose to leave your car, we recommend reversing into the spot. The first thing this will assist with is showing you if you have left your lights on and the second is that it is easier to tow your car out of the spot with the nose sticking out. On the note of parking, if you need to board a flight or train, give yourself enough time to make your way from the parking lot to the check-in counter. The last thing you want to do is miss your ride.
Be smart about your carry-ons
Use your carry-on luggage to store important goods that you would need to get through the day. A simple rule of thumb is that if you cannot live without it, it should be in your carry n. This is incredibly helpful if your luggage is delayed or lost. The last thing you want to do is try to find a pharmacy in a foreign country for your chronic medication or have to get your country’s embassy to reissue your passport.
Make sure important information is close by
Try to keep a copy of your booking details on you at all times so that you can contact your hotel should there be delays or you get lost. This will also be of use when filling in forms related to lost luggage as it will need to be sent to where you are staying. And it will help you know where the Malaysian blackjack tables and other attractions are.
Book in ASAP
If you have a seating preference, you will want t book your spot as soon as the opportunity presents itself. This is only applicable if your booking has not specified where you will be sitting. On this note, try to memorise your flight number to navigate your way through the airport, as it will be the only thing you understand should you be in a foreign country.
Know your luggage
Baggage claims are a sea of confusion, especially when there are so many bags that look the same. To make it easier on yourself, find a way to make your bag easier to find. Perhaps it’s a sticker or a ribbon, whatever it is, make sure that it stands out.
Travelling is all about knowing your bases. You need to be proactive and ensure that regardless of where you are, you know where you should be going and have a way of ensuring that you get there safely.
