Firstly, you need to decide where you want to go and how you'll get there, Endsleigh travel insurance shares some advice to make you travels run smooth and hassle free.
Find your fellow travelers
Regardless of where in the world you are travelling to, odds are that you will bump into some countrymen / women and this can be a great way to save that extra bit of cash! If you do meet people on holiday why not find out where they are planning on going and if you share some destinations why not travel together, it is cheaper and safer!
Respect your hosts
There are many different cultures around the world and everyone does things differently and you need to remember that when you are a guest in their country. The simplest way to earn a little respect is to learn a couple of basic phrases in their native language (s). Just learning how to say 'hello', 'goodbye' and 'thank you' will be a step in the right direction and you never know, your friendliness might just be rewarded!
Keep an open mind
The whole point of travelling is to go away and experience different cultures and ways of life, so keep an open mind. It is one of the most important things (after you passport and travel insurance details) to take along on your next holiday. Travelling to third world countries can teach you a lot about humanity and taking in the experience will leave you feeling humbled and lucky for being privileged to have seen /felt it.
