Travelling abroad can be a very mind-broadening and enriching experience, for you learn so many new things, see so many wonders of the world, interact with so many different cultures. It can be a life-altering experience. However, do remember to take travel insurance before you embark on your trip, apart from complying with certain responsibilities. Here are some tips on what to do before travelling abroad:

Duties regarding security and health

  • Ensure you have taken proper vaccinations and are carrying all your medicines
  • Check from your travel insurance company whether they also provide health insurance
  • Check whether you travel insurance policy provides overseas travel insurance
  • Keep copies of your passport and other important documents to ensure that if the originals get lost, you still have a backup. Maybe you could store copies in the cloud, which you can access from anywhere
  • Get yourself registered in your embassy, so that in case of an emergency your government can reach out to you and ensure your safety

Financial responsibilities

  • Ensure that you have enough money for your travel, and some to spare for unforeseen circumstances
  • Make sure of what the relevant currency exchange rates are
  • Ensure that your credit card will work in the country you plan to visit and inform your bank about your travel plans, or they may disable your card if they suddenly see some unusual transactions happening. Also, stock up on some local cash, because not all places will accept credit cards

Do your local research thoroughly

  • Research your destination thoroughly to gather as much information about it as possible, as it will make your trip more fruitful and fulfilling
  • Buy tickets in advance for the places on your itinerary, as this will get you good discounts, and you will not have to spend too much time standing in queues
  • Buy guidebooks to make the most of your travel, as authorised guides may be expensive and you may not have the same flexibility compared to when you are on your own
  • Also, do some research on the events which are to take place in your destination during your stay there so that you do not miss any, and while at it, also check out the local cuisine to find what things you would like to eat

Electronics, luggage and packing

  • Keep your mobile charger handy. Ensure you have the right kind of charger which is used in your destination country.
  • Activate your mobile’s international services, which can be cheaper than roaming charges
  • Check the policies of your airline to find out how much luggage you will be allowed to carry so that you do not have to incur extra fees
  • Keep an extra set of clothing in your carry-on bag, just in case you need it
  • If possible, stock up on some native snacks, which can be helpful until you find a restaurant at your destination place that suits your taste
