During the pandemic, the only entertainment we can afford is on the Internet. We watch movies, play at BetChan Casino, and use Instagram and TikTok. But soon we will be able to travel again, and if you want your journey to be perfect, follow these tips.
Buy Your Tickets in Advance
If you book them 2-3 months or six months before your trip, the cost will be much lower than a couple of weeks before your desired departure date. If you have a large number of people, you may be able to buy tickets at a much lower price than a couple of weeks before your desired date of departure. They often have promotions that allow you to buy tickets at a big discount. Look not for direct flights, but for connections to other countries: this way you can not only save money but also see other places on the way to your destination.
Choose a Comfortable and Affordable Accommodation
You don’t have to live in the center: hotels in non-tourist areas are usually much cheaper and it doesn’t take long to get to the main attractions. A great option for traveling on a budget is hostels. Moreover, it’s not necessary to take a bed in a common room for 8-10 people. Many of them have separate rooms for couples or small companies with private facilities on the floor, and sometimes in the room itself.
Take the Right Clothes
Take comfortable and practical clothes and shoes that can be combined with each other. When you pack for a trip, take another look and put away things you don’t think you’ll wear. As a rule, some clothes are never worn until the end of the vacation. Instead of extra shirts and dresses, it is better to take a change of pair of comfortable shoes, a sweatshirt with long sleeves and jeans because the weather is often unpredictable, even in warm countries.
Vacuum Bags and Travel Organizers
If you put clothes in such bags, let the air out and close them, you will save a lot of space in your bag or suitcase. Besides, they are quite durable, airtight and waterproof, so you can not worry that things can get ruined if it rains or if liquid spills in the suitcase. All the little things, including cosmetics, hygiene products, chargers and other accessories will always be safe and sound if you pack them in special travel cases with compartments.
Use secret places to store valuables. Carrying money and bank cards in your bags or pockets can be unsafe. In this case, a small-sized secret pocket is a lifesaver. It can be easily hidden under clothing and do not worry about the safety of valuables.
Choose a Place to Eat
Finding good cafes, restaurants, parks, and attractions is not only a guidebook, but also useful travel websites and smartphone apps like TripAdvisor, Foursquare, and others. With their help, you can easily find many options for places to visit on your trip. Check out the ratings and photos, read reviews from other travelers, and choose the one you like.
When you go shopping abroad, don’t forget to check with stores to see if they issue TaxFree. This system of tax refunds for foreigners allows you to receive a refund on your purchase at checkout. Refund amounts range from 7 to 20 percent of purchases made in one store or mall in one day. You can get your refund at the airport or by transfer to your card.
