Travel Tips

● Create a packing list. A great place to start is with another packing list, like Safari the Globe's Packing List (pdf), then adjust it to meet your needs.

● To help get over jet lag quicker, get on the time zone of your destination city as soon as you wake up on the day of your travel, you should sleep and eat on your destination time zone. Sometimes, skipping a plane meal can be the best route to feeling better during your trip.

● In many places taxis don't have meters like they do in the United States and many European countries. Before traveling in one of these taxis, be sure to agree on the fare to your destination.

● Credit cards and debit cards usually offer the best exchange rate when paying in a foreign currency, but if taking money out of an ATM machine a service fee may be added and your credit card issuer may charge an international credit charge. Despite these fees, if taking out large sums of money, ATM machines are still usually the cheapest option. Before going abroad check with your credit card company to find out international charge rates, learn to avoid cash advances, and to be sure your cards work when you're abroad.

● Do you know how to drive a standard/manual transmission car (stick shift)? In many countries automatic transmission cars are rare so if you decide to rent a car abroad be sure to check if the car has standard or automatic transmission; better yet, request your preference when booking.
