10 Travel Hacks that will make your Foreign Trip Successful

309

Going on a foreign trip is one of the most exciting things you can do when you have the time to spare, such as in a vacation, to take a break from the daily grind, to rejuvenate, or to explore the world. However, to make your journey smooth, there are certain things you need to do, apart from ensuring that you take out a good travel insurance policy. In this article, we take a look at some travel hacks that will help you enjoy your tour much more than otherwise.

  1. You can tag your checked-in luggage as ‘fragile’. This would be a smart move, as your baggage will not be handled roughly, preventing any possible damage, and will also get priority over the luggage of other co-travellers. This travel hack is especially useful if you are aged and travelling alone, as you will thus be able to claim your baggage first and save a lot of time and effort.
  2. Travelling light is another important thing to keep in mind if you wish to enjoy your trip. Carrying unnecessary baggage is not only costly and cumbersome but also eats up a lot of time in clearance procedures at airports.
  3. To ensure the security of your important documents, the best thing to do is to store them as drafts in your mail ID or upload them to your account in the cloud. The main documents of which you need to take utmost care are your passport, driving license, tickets, hotel reservation receipts, and travel insurance policy. You also need to keep a copy of your itinerary handy.
  4. Wherever you are travelling, it would be a good idea to use local ATMs and local credit cards, because getting your currency exchanged at airport counters is much costlier.
  5. Another essential factor to bear in mind while travelling abroad is getting an international SIM card, which could help you save a lot of money on roaming charges.
  6. You could wear a multi-purpose scarf on the journey, which is also called an infinity scarf, as it is not only a good-looking clothing accessory, but you can also use it as a face mask, to protect yourself from pollution, use it as a pillow, or even us it as an over-the-shoulder bag to carry useful items.
  7. You could also carry some good quality plastic bags, as you can fold it into a neat little package when not in use and open it up to carry utilities when you need to.
  8. Configure your mobile device to use offline Google Maps, as it comes in very handy while navigating in unknown territories, even if there is no internet connection available in the place where you are travelling.
  9. Do quick research about the place you are travelling to so that you can get a fair knowledge about the culture, cuisine, and such information. This will help you quickly navigate as well as avoid unintentional offending of the beliefs of the people of that place.
  10. Last but not least, is to get yourself a travel insurance policy. Check out the ones from Bharti AXA GI , as they offer comprehensive plans for their customers.
