With the busy summer family travel season right around the corner, Family Travel Magazine, a family travel blog that offers family travel reviews and tips, has announced four things to do before going on vacation. While most families know that they should confirm their reservations, check-in to their flights, and pack their bags, there are a few other things they should do.
Here are a few of the tips:
Check those dates
Travelers are advised to check the expiration dates on their drivers’ license, passport, credit cards, and any other travel documents. While it may be possible to get on a flight with an expired ID, it's not possible to rent a car. Keep in mind that in many states, registries do not let you know in advance when your license is about to expire.
Before traveling, travelers should pay all bills by their due date. Where possible, it's also recommended that travelers pay bills that are due several days after their return date.
Make Some Advance Calls
Travelers should with their cell phone provider and bank to see if what texting, data, phone call, and ATM fees will be at their destination.
Mail and Newspapers
Travelers should arrange to have a neighbor or house sitter pick up mail and newspapers while they are away. If that's not possible, they can have their mail and newspapers put on hold.
