Things can get a bit chaotic before you get on the plane to travel anywhere. The last trip I forgot a few things myself so I wanted to put together an article to help people avoid the same mistakes. You should always have a check list in your pocket so that you can whip it out and make sure that you have everything with you at all times. Things like your cell phone, charger, extra change of clothes, and maybe even a book should be with you at all times.
There was one trip that I took that I didn’t have any clothes because the airline lost my back. If I had kept a change of clothes inside my backpack I would’ve been more comfortable the entire trip. Unfortunately, I didn’t get my bag back until weeks after the trip was over and I was already home. I didn’t let it ruin my trip but it would’ve been a lot more fun if I had the swimming trunks and all the cool stuff that I brought and had a plan to wear.
The only benefit to the airline losing your suitcase is the fact that you can get a set of clothes every single day that you’re bagis lost on your trip. Be sure to check with your airline before going on a shopping spree but as long as you keep your receipts you will be paid back for the cloths that you buy each day.
Another one of the most important things to check is to confirm with your airport limo the time for your departing and returning pick up. This is important to make sure that you have your reservation so you’re not sitting at the airport waiting for hours because it can be a huge mess. As long as you contact the company and you know that your reservation is set in stone then you can relax and have a peace of mind knowing your transportation wont leave you behind.
Finally, it may be a good idea to contact your phone company as well as your bank to tell them about the upcoming changes such as roaming changes on your phone or out of the country purchases for your card. You don’t want to get to Mexico or wherever you’re going and find out that your credit card has been shut off and you can’t get a hold of the bank at the time that you really need it. Also, It’s not uncommon for the phone company to charge you an extra fee so they can rack up a huge bill on your vacation. The easiest way to avoid this is my calling your phone company and making sure that you’re not going to get cheated on your plan while away.
These tips can help you avoid a headache before you leave for your next trip. Just take a few minutes to go through them and follow through and your next vacation will go on without a hitch. Plus, When you get this right you can really save a lot of money that would’ve been wasted on your trip, so have fun and be sure to take advantage of these money saving suggestions before you go!
