Bienvenido a nuestra página de consejos de viaje. Aquí encontrará un montón de información útil para ayudarlo a prepararse para viajar Mundo a Través.
Comience con su paquete de vacaciones eligiendo un paquete de visita guiada. Es la mejor manera de viajar con la familia porque todos los detalles están planificados previamente para usted.
Esto es especialmente importante si no está interesado en investigar destinos usted mismo. Para aquellos que planifican previamente, tómese un tiempo para crear un itinerario completo luego de investigar el destino que está visitando.
Preste especial atención a los festivales especiales, el clima y el clima político cuando trabaje en el itinerario. Esto proporciona espacio para planes de respaldo en caso de problemas de viaje imprevistos.
El itinerario también asegura que todo esté planeado en función de lo que usted / su familia quiere ver y experimentar. Solo asegúrese de que todas las actividades sean algo que valga la pena probar y que le brinde a usted y a sus compañeros de viaje una nueva dimensión de los lugares visitados. Si viaja con un presupuesto limitado, debe planificar con vuelos, arreglos terrestres, pasaporte, visa, comidas, transporte, compras y efectivo de contingencia para emergencias.
Asegúrese de solicitar los días de vacaciones, que incluyen un día de descanso después de su regreso para hacer frente a la fatiga o el desfase horario si está volando. Además, asegúrese de que todos sus documentos de viaje se confirmen de 3 a 4 días hábiles antes de la fecha de viaje para asegurarse de que los cambios de último minuto puedan ser aceptados.
En cuanto al embalaje, es esencial empacar lo que necesita teniendo en cuenta las compras que planea hacer en su destino de vacaciones. Si viaja con la familia y los niños, asegúrese de que las necesidades de los ancianos y los niños estén detalladas y empaquetadas para evitar molestias o berrinches.
Lo más importante, es vital informar a sus parientes cercanos / amigos de su viaje. Sería bueno hacer arreglos para el cuidado de la casa / mascota mientras estás fuera. Por último, llame a su banco y hágales saber que está viajando y que habrá una gran cantidad de compras con la tarjeta de débito o crédito.

On your travel day, make a list of the things that you need to bring along- luggage, passport and tickets. Also, mark all your bags inside and out with your name and address – both home address and your holiday address. To be on the safe side, weigh your bags to ensure you don’t exceed the baggage requirements of the airline. Travel insurance is becoming a must, so do consider getting one because you do not have to worry if your bags are lost or if your flight has been cancelled or even if your passport and wallet is stolen. It is always best to get yourself and your family covered as mishaps do happen when travelling.
You do know that it is possible to travel with hand-luggage only, rite? Just that you will need to know the airline rules for carrying liquids, otherwise you may have to remove them at the security checkpoint! In order to handle jet lags, stay hydrated by drinking lots of plain water during the flight. Avoid tea and coffee.
Gather required documents before your flight as you are responsible to present as required, documents by the relevant authorities at all entry and exit lanes, health and other documents required by law, regulations, order, demands or requirements of the countries flown from, into or over.
Self-check-in is free, simple & quick! It will save your time at airport! Otherwise, counter check-in opens 3 hours before the scheduled time of departure and closes 1 hour before the scheduled time of departure. Note: Check-in deadlines may vary at different airports and for particular flights. Airport has long queues due to complex security checks. We suggest that you check-in early and proceed immediately to the departure gate or you may risk being left behind in security.
Pre-book your checked baggage to save money and time. Each piece/item of checked baggage has to weigh less than 30kg. Guests may not combine their checked baggage weight with other guests unless travelling in the same booking.
For, baggage drop counter, it opens 3 hours before the scheduled time of departure and closes 45 minutes before the scheduled time of departure. Guests are required to hold a boarding pass to use our baggage drop counters.

For boarding time, guests are required to be at the boarding gate at least 20 minutes before the scheduled time of departure or you will be denied boarding.
- Ensure you have a reliable GPS system and location maps in the car. Sometimes, you can’t rely totally on GPS and the local location maps come in handy.
- Pack enough liquids/water and snacks in the car as some stretches are long and do not have halfway stops.
- Try to reach your destination before dark as most stretches are either forests or farms where street lights are minimal in the countryside.
- Plan some games, pack short story books or sing along rhymes if you travel with kids.
- Umbrellas are great in case there are light drizzles or rain.
- Always ensure your tank is full and refill before it reaches quarter tank as it is not easy to find another petrol station nearby. You never know if you have gotten on the wrong track/trail or got lost.
- Buy insurance coverage for the driver and passengers.
When you are overseas/ holiday destination, do call your close relatives/ friends to let them know you have arrived safely and keep them updated of where you are if you are moving around. Make sure to always keep your luggage locked when leaving them behind in the hotel. Carry your passport with you and ensure you don’t carry excessive cash that might attract attention. If you are taking a self drive holiday, make sure you collect the car from the airport and get a GPS.
When you are abroad and if you want to try something local, make sure it is a recommendation from a trustworthy source. To make life easier, get a local map and identify the tourist info centres. Moreover for safety precautions, avoid walking alone at night or in dark areas and beware of pickpockets whose modus operandi is by distracting you. Also, if you drive, follow the local traffic rules and avoid driving at night.
Before your return flight, do confirm your flight details in case of delays or cancellations. It is best to ensure that you have all travel documents prepared and easily accessible for check in. Always plan your packing and don’t do too much last minute shopping that can’t fit your luggage. Keep track with the luggage requirements of the country you’re visiting in mind.
Do not forget to remind your close relatives/ friends of your return and make arrangements for an airport pick up. Keep track of all your valuables and make sure that they are in your hand- wallet, passport, camera, watch, jewellery.
Last but not least, make sure you are at the airport two hours (or 3-4 hours in some countries) earlier to avoid missing the flight.
