ATLANTA, Ga. (PRWEB) January 02, 2013
Those planning an international trip should prepare well in advance for as many contingencies as possible. Protect Your Bubble, travel protection brand, has a list of five essential tips for those going internationally for business and pleasure.
- Educate yourself before leaving – Spend some time researching the destination. Is it safe? How widely spoken is English? Also, find out if vaccinations are necessary and if so, which ones. It’s also advised to find the country’s U.S. Consulate location in advance, as well as contact the bank to update them that you’ll be traveling internationally. This will ensure the bank doesn’t assume the purchases made overseas are fraud. A bit of planning beforehand will make for a much more entertaining and less stressful trip.
- Keep money and valuables hidden – Pickpockets, thieves and general muggers love tourists who do not speak the language, have no idea how to contact police and make easy targets. Small passport bags (also called money belts) which hang loosely in front and can be hidden inside a shirt are the best and safest way to travel. A few companies make theft-resistant bags and are not a bad idea if regular travel overseas is planned.
- Buy a charger adapter – Many other countries use different electrical outlets from the US. The outlets are also vastly different depending on the destination, so investing in an adapter is a good idea to charge phones, cameras and other electronic gadgets while abroad.
- Take some currency – The main branches of most banks will have the ability to change currency. The currency exchanges in the airport are frequently higher on rates than smaller, local exchange rates. Having a bit on hand makes for easier transfers at taxis and subways, so plan ahead well in advance before leaving. Learn exchange rates before leaving also, as they do change frequently.
- Buy insurance – A small purchase can pay huge dividends if a flight has to be canceled, baggage is lost or a medical emergency transpires. Besides, what is a few extra dollars on a trip of a lifetime, except peace of mind.
When planning your winter travel plans, remember that vacation insurance is a great way to cover trip emergencies, cancelations and interruptions. Protect Your Bubble travel protection gives travelers peace of mind, starting at $14 per trip. Visit us.protectyourbubble.com for a quick quote.
