Travel Hacks & Tricks to Plan Your First International Holiday

18

First international trips can be exciting and stressful at the same time. It’s an experience that you will remember for a lifetime. Therefore, by planning smartly, you can ensure that your first trip doesn’t turn into a nightmare that scars you for a lifetime. Some of the trending international destinations for first-time travellers are Indonesia, Dubai, Venice, Singapore, etc. However, more than the destination, it’s the experience that matters.

MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR FIRST INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL TRIP WITH THESE EXPERT TIPS:

RESEARCH:

Goes without saying, it’s important to read up about the place that you are planning to visit. Every country has different traditions and a different lifestyle. By reading about the foreign country and its people, you will act like you’re one amongst them.

PACK LIGHT:

As much as you want to carry your entire wardrobe for your vacation, it is best advised to travel light. Not only is it a hassle to carry so much luggage, but it also puts you at risk of being robbed or mugged. Carry your essentials, roll up your clothes, smaller sizes of toiletries, necessary medications, phone charger – that’s all you need. Also, if you travel with empty space, you get a chance to indulge in shopping.

INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL INSURANCE:

Buying travel insurance is just as important as booking your flight tickets. Travel insurance is a must to help you deal with unexpected situations, such as a medical emergency, theft, stolen luggage, delayed flight, etc. An international travel insurance policy not only covers your health and unforeseen emergencies but also protects your luggage and unplanned flight cancellations.

Here are the things you should look for in your international travel health insurance:

  1. Type of insurance: If you have more than one international travel plan in a year, then you must choose a multi-trip insurance plan, but if this is your first and final trip of the year then single-trip health insurance works best for you.
  2. Country coverage: There are mainly two types of international travel insurance policies – Schengen travel insurance and non-Schengen country travel insurance. You must choose the right policy for you depending on your destination.
  3. Emergencies covered: Before finalizing your travel insurance, you must read the list of emergencies that are covered in your health insurance policy. This will save you from any disappointments during the claim.
  4. Assistance: Only choose an insurance provider who is available globally and has a worldwide support system. Bharti AXA has a presence in over 130 countries with 24/7 assistance. Speak to our expert and get the your ideal deals on international travel insurance.

FOREIGN CURRENCY:

Check the best exchange rates and convert your Indian currency in advance to avoid any last-minute hassles. It is also advisable to carry plastic money instead of hard cash as it is a safer option.

We hope your first international trip becomes a memorable one and you come back with many stories to narrate. Happy travelling!
