Many of us are already counting down to our well-earned holiday or summer break. But before you pack your sun cream and buy a whole new summer wardrobe make sure you’ve ticked everything off your holiday checklist first! No one wants to have that horrible feeling that they’ve forgotten something while they’re in mid-flight or sitting on a beach!
Your travel insurance
Yes, it’s rather dull and no one enjoys sitting and filling in the personal detail forms but having travel insurance is absolutely crucial. Having travel insurance means that if anything happens to you while you’re abroad then you’re covered and won’t face hefty medical bills. Not only that, you’ll also be able to fully enjoy your holiday, knowing that everything is covered. If you’re unsure and need a little more information, then check out SafeTrip safe travels blog.
You can’t go very far without it! And chances are you know exactly where it is. But when was the last time you looked at and checked it was still in date? No one wants to rock up to the check-in desk with an out of date passport and be told that their holiday is a no-go! Be smart and make sure you check your passport in good time before you travel – better still, check it right now!
Your travel documents
The best tip I can give you here is to be sensible and get organised. Find yourself a nice big plastic wallet or folder and put all your travel documentation in one place. That includes, everyone’s (in date) passports, your travel insurance documents, boarding passes, hotel confirmation, flight numbers, tickets, driving licenses and anything else you may need.
It’s also a great idea to write down the details of your flight out and your flight back home. Make sure relatives and friends know where you’re staying and have the flight numbers and hotel details to hand, if you can’t use your phone abroad, make sure you have some other means of communication.
Make your home secure
This one is so easy to forget. You’re going to be away from home for a while, so make sure that your home is secure. That window that doesn’t quite shut properly, get it fixed before you go away. Make sure all the windows and doors lock securely. If possible, let your neighbors know that you’ll be away for a few days and ask them to keep an eye on your property. It might be wise to invest in some light timers too, so it looks like someone is home.
Don’t leave this to the last minute either. Whether you have a four-legged friend or one that runs in a wheel make sure you have good, reliable pet care in place before you travel. And once you’ve found the perfect pet care provider, plan a backup one, just in case something goes wrong. You can enjoy your holiday so much more, knowing that everything is being taken care of at home!
