Traveling can be one of the most fun times of the year. With the right planning, you will have a great trip. Be sure to take all of the needed documents before you head out and keep these tips in mind as you travel.

Take a minimum of valuable items with you when you travel. The more you take with you, the higher your chances of losing the items. Even worse, they could be stolen.

When planning a trip, select your digital camera with the needs of your trip in mind. If you will be backpacking, for instance, a rechargeable battery wouldn't be ideal. Usually, you will need a digital camera that's easy to turn on and focuses quickly in order to avoid missing once-in-a-lifetime shots.

If your destination requires some vaccinations, carry the certificate you get that says you've gotten the treatments. You may need this if you try to enter or exit a country, and even when you go from city to city. Without this proof, authorities will have no way to know if you have been vaccinated and may place you in quarantine.

If you are staying in hotels, especially in countries that are less developed and you worry about a break-in at night in your room, take a doorstop along. They are small, easy to pack and they keep doors from opening.



Carry a business card or book of matches from your hotel with you everywhere you go. When out and about in a foreign locale, you may get lost, and having this sort of identification will help others point you in the right direction. This is helpful, especially for those in unfamiliar places.

Add an ID tag to the inside of your luggage. Luggage tags can easily be torn or lost when your bags are in transit. Just in case your bag ends up lost and without its tag, place identification information inside, so it can still be returned to you quickly.

If you're licensed for it, riding a motorcycle can make for a wonderful trip. Not only will you enjoy the experience, but it will cost you less in gas. Motorcycle traveling can be lots of fun.

Research currency rates prior to your departure since this will make it easier to budget. You will know how much you are able to spend and even save money. This will increase your fun and reduce your expenses.

If you're going to a foreign country, bring some cards in that country's language that describes your food allergies. This will give your server a good idea of what you are able to eat. These cards will ensure a more pleasurable eating experience when you're away.

Sleeping pills can get you through a red-eye flight. It can be really hard to get good sleep on a plane, with the strange surroundings, the unfamiliar noises, and the cramped seats. Try a sleeping pill might help get you some rest on a long flight if you have trouble falling asleep otherwise. The key is to hold off taking any pills until after departure so that you are not drowsy in the event you are forced to head back to the terminal.

Make sure you tip well. When you board the boat, give the steward twenty dollars. The same members of the crew will probably serve you the whole trip, so if you start out being generous, they are more likely to take excellent care of you.

Another important suggestion is to ensure that you are getting the rates they offer to residents of the location you are visiting. In many cases, rates are jacked up when they know you are a traveler and the increase can be substantial. Sometimes, hotels have a special rate for local residents just to help increase their occupancy. If you have a friend in that area, call him up and ask if he can help you get the special deal. This will help save money.

You want to always make sure your luggage stands out in comparison to everyone else's luggage. One way to do that is to decorate your baggage colorfully, with stickers, markers or paint. You would hate to have someone grab your bag by mistake.
