Last time we talking about:  How to fly with a child: the rules of a comfortable trip?

Even if you are not traveling for the first time, you are still not immune from unforeseen situations on the way. Starting with tickets and passports and ending with the treatment of money, on the journey you are at risk.

We have to admit that the tourist industry has finally spoiled the tastes of tourists. Instead of the impressions and beauties of the world, people choose "hotel stars" and "breakfasts". It should be remembered that "all inclusive" and "transfers" deprive you of the opportunity to plan your own time, to try the local cuisine. The challenge is that the traveler should not spend more money than a local resident. The exception is accommodation.

We want to share the most important tips:

1. Plan ahead. You need to start planning for 2-3 months. In most cases, you will get the best prices for tickets and accommodation. If the route turned out cheap, redeem all tickets that can be redeemed. If something can not be redeemed from here, foreign friends can help you. As a rule, tickets can not be returned - and this is the most serious incentive to not let go of the trip.

Very often in such circumstances, the employee relies also on catering for the host's table and even a certain amount of out-of-pocket expenses.
