Make Traveling Easier With These Simple Steps Whether for business or pleasure, traveling can be a fun experience. But paying too much for travel can spoil the fun. This article is here to help you minimize your expenses related to travel and still reach your destination. Be prepared before you go camping and/or hiking by obtaining maps of where you are going. And make sure they are with you at all times. You may also want to bring a compass or GPS device, just in case you find yourself lost. Attach a label with your name and contact information to your luggage and place another one on the inside. Doing this can really be a lifesaver if your luggage is separated from you, so when someone else finds it, they can contact you. Losing your luggage can happen any time that you can not see it. Always go out of your way to tip any bell station and housekeeper appropriately. The bell boy should get a bare minimum of $1/bag, and housekeeping should get at least a couple dollars a day. If you treat the staff well, then they will treat you well. Photocopy all your essential documents before leaving. Keep the copies of your insurance, passport, and other documents in a safe location while you carry the originals along with you. Also, have someone you know keep a set of copies, too. This helps if all copies in your possession are lost. A vacation does not mean that it has to be far from home. You can find enjoyable places to visit in your home state or one that's close by. Staying local allows you to save money while benefiting your own local economy. You never know, there could be a hidden gem right around the corner. It is important to remain calm and not panic if your luggage does not make it to your vacation spot with you. Ask for the airport's lost luggage office and file a claim. Make sure you have ID and flight documents handy. In most cases, your luggage will reappear and be returned to you. If you are going to vacation at a National Park you should get a National Park season pass. It's only $50 annually, and it covers your entry to all the national parks. When preparing for travel abroad, check when your passport will expire. Most countries have passport regulations with which you must comply. If your passport is expired or close to expiring, some countries won't allow you to enter. These range from 3 to 6 months, or could even reach 8 months to a year.
