There are surprising numbers of things of to- dos that need to be crossed off before heading out of any trip and prior to every vacation.
When you first head off to places in the world that are a lot different from where you live, a number of things changes. Here are short lists of things you should know before you start your routine of extensive overseas travel or even in your own country.
TAKE CARE OF STOP ORDERS AND ADVANCE PAYMENTS:
Once your travel is booked you should inform the regular people like the postal mail, newspaperman, and house cleaner to stop deliveries or services.
MANAGE YOUR CASH FLOW:
If you’re travelling domestically, be sure to visit your bank before leaving for your trip, so that you won’t fall short in cash. Go to the bank web site and map, find out any available Atm location near your destination so you are not forced to use any other bank machine. Call your bank or Credit Card Company and let them know about you travel plans. Most bank and credit card companies keep track of spending patterns and may interpret an unexpected oversea purchase as credit card fraud. Your account could be locked if you use your card in another country without notifying your bank.
MAKE A CHECK LIST OF THINGS TO BRING AND DOUBLE CHECK like money, prescription, itinerary, confirmation numbers, emergency contact numbers, chargers, passport tickets and more.
CHECK THE LOCAL ENTERTAINMENT LISTINGS:
Most cities and small towns have some kind of weekly entertainment rag such as time out which covers dozens of destinations around the globe. These are excellent sources for entertainment listings, reviews, and city’s best of lists and more. It is best to check these from home as you can then purchase advance ticket where necessary, make restaurants reservation etc. The local tourist board have an events calendar on its website, where you can check out what’s going on during your trip.
PAY BILLS BEFORE HAND.
Order and pick up a refill on your medication if it’ll run out while you’re on your trip.
THE DAY BEFORE YOU LEAVE: throw away perishable food items from the fridge as well as any fruits and veggies that might go bad while you are away.
Check the weather of destination you are going to visit.
Confirm hotel reservation.
Confirm rental car reservations.
Make copies of important items. Always make copies of your passport and credit cards with you, in case you lose them on your trip. You can always scan copies in your email whatever you feel comfortable with.
Unplug and switch off:
Remember to turn everything off or unplug them to conserve energy and money and also be safe from any short-circuit.
Check for item you often use right up until leaving and end up forgetting: like your Medicine, sunglasses, wallet and phone.
