Travel mistakes are part of life and they happen during travel, too. However, our “mistake” really was just a poor choice and totally preventable.
Regardless if you’re a first time traveler or you travel several times. We all make inaccuracy when it comes to travel planning. But good thing there is always a room for improvement. With careful planning, I bet you can spend your time enjoying your vacation.
I, myself always do this mistake. Ladies are fun of changing outfit from day-to-day. Sometimes we will be gone for 3 days but our baggage is good for 8 days. Ideally speaking what o take and what to leave behind is a nightmare, its stressful simplifying your stuff into a single backpack. Believe me you might pack 10 t-shirt but you’ll probably wear 5 lol! But it will be the burden to get stuck with high baggage fees for exceeding the weight limit. as the old saying goes “lay all out your stuff out on a bed and half it”. You wont wear all of them, and you can always buy new stuff along the way.
2. Not buying travel insurance
Most travelers spend a lot of time and effort planning the perfect getaway, but they overlook the importance of getting a travel insurance. Although travel insurance cannot help people avoid misfortunes during their travels it offers consolation in the form of monetary compensation which can be very useful in certain situation.
3. Not sticking to your budget
There are many ways we can make to save money for our travel. And I know most of s are good at it. But the hard part however, is sticking to a budget once you are on the road. We usually spend too much, but it is important to make daily travel budget list. Work out how long you plan to be away and make a budget to get you through the journey.
4. Not grabbing local currency at the airport
Get local currency at the airport upon arrival. As soon as you leave the airport, you’ll need local currency to take public transportation. Best advice is to grab a bit of each leg of your trip.
5. Showing expensive items
Theft is the last thing you do not want to happen. Dont attract the attention of pickpockets. You don’t have to be wary when travelling, but you need to be aware. Any valuable items should be kept away.
I love random weekend trips, mall hopping and music. I enjoy unplanned escapades without compromising leisure. My free time are spent thinking about my next possible adventure. I feel like I’m on the ride of my life. There’s no end date, no itinerary, and no real backup plan. Just adventure, adrenaline, and a lifetime of globe-trotting daydreams to fulfil.
Every trip is a special emotion, experience it with Wikreate Travel and Tours!
