The first trip abroad: what do you need to know and how to prepare?

Last time we talking about: How is it safer to take money abroad?

A trip abroad is an exciting event. Impressions from new countries and cities, meetings and people, emotions and fascinating discoveries. All these experiences and feelings are amplified several times if you go abroad for the first time. How to prepare for this?
First of all, decide on the company and direction. It often happens that even close friends prefer absolutely different kinds of rest, and a joint trip will lead to disagreements and even some cooling in the relationship. Having chosen the country, check the expiration date of the passport, as many people forget about this and in recent days overpay for the urgency of issuing a new passport. In addition, if you fly to a country that supports the visa regime, you will have to take care in advance for a visa. A lot of people prefer to organize their own holidays - they independently submit a package of all documents necessary for obtaining a visa, book hotels on the sites and develop a route and a schedule of rest. However, our advice will help those who travel for the first time, still, make a tour through the agencies.

This will greatly simplify your fees. You will be offered several options for recreation, hotels and food systems, regions and flights. Many people trust reviews on the forums but believe me, we are all different and mistakenly you can trust the opinion of absolutely foreign people for you. Ideal - the recommendations of your friends and acquaintances. Those who have already visited the country and the city, which you have chosen, know the peculiarities of recreation in them and can give constructive and objective advice.

Before the trip, study the culture, geography, history, and traditions of the country. What in one state is considered the norm, in others, it can be fined or even punishable by law. Now you can find almost any information, so do not be lazy and prepare, even if in your travel agency you had a brief briefing before the trip. Buy a map, guidebooks, think about what you would like to visit first. Very often already in the country where you will rest, you will be met by guides and will offer a rich sightseeing program. You can follow it, but you can study the city yourself, discover new horizons, the main thing - do everything wisely and without excessive self-confidence.

While your package of documents for the trip is issued, and the passport is waiting for a visa, take care of how to properly collect the suitcase. Different airlines have their own norms of luggage weight and hand luggage, this too, asks in advance. Make a list of what you need to buy on the road and go shopping. This will add positive emotions and joyful impressions to your mood.

 Do not forget to refill the first aid kit, because the body can react differently to flight and long-term moving, changing climate and pressure, weather and time.

Very important advice from those who have already experienced the loss of baggage. In hand, luggage adds up light clothing, a set of underwear, a swimsuit, and also a light sundress and shoes. If you are flying to the sea and your suitcase is lost, you can immediately go to the beach. If you wait for a luggage return in one of the capitals of Europe, you can change into fresh clothes and go for a walk in the city, distracting from unpleasant thoughts about the delay with suitcases. All liquids, perfumes, deodorants, whenever possible put in a suitcase, but it is better to take money, documents, cards and chargers with them in hand luggage.

Going to exotic countries, take care of vaccinations for you and your children. This will protect you from unforeseen situations and sharp changes in the climate, features of the national cuisine and other new factors for your body.

The package of documents is issued to you, usually 2 days before the trip. Once you receive it, check everything again - the dates, the name of the company that will meet you in another country and provides the transfer, names, and contacts of partners who are responsible for you in the territory of another country.

 Leave the relatives with the name and phone numbers of the hotel where you will live, maybe contacts of acquaintances whom you will have to see, so that your relatives and friends know where you are and did not worry.

 Do not forget to refill your phone account or buy a Travel Sim to always be in touch.

On the eve of the trip, check again whether you packed everything, set the alarm and go to rest.

At the airport you need to be 2 hours before check-in for your flight, so book a taxi in advance.
