Tips for travellers (airplane or otherwise)





Bookface
Looking for any travel tips that anybody might have.

For instance:

If traveling with someone and checking your bags, split your contents half and half so if one bag is lost you both still have clothes to wear.

Tie a bright distinctive ribbon or other marking on your bag so it can't be mistaken for someone else's.

To counter the effects of "ear popping" hold your nose and close your mouth while 'exhaling' to balance the air pressure in your ears, or alternatively, chew some gum.

To compensate for jet lag, try to go to sleep at the local bedtime -- stay up all of your "home" nighttime if you have to.

Double-check your essentials with a quick look at a packing list. Only move on to the next item once you've physically verified you've got that thing you're "sure" you packed.

Always remember to bring your towel. If a potential lift sees that you have your own towel then he will automatically assume that you also have a toothbrush, toothpaste, shower gel etc, and so will happily lend you any of these items that you may have accidentally 'misplaced'.

anyone else?

Be sure you have extra clothes.

Be sure you have everything with you before you leave.

Bring stuff that would entertain you (brick game? laptop?) while being bored / waiting.

Always have your credit card on you, Visa or Mastercard most preferrable, You can never be too careful and bringing your own cash isnt as wise as you may think.

Make sure to check out where you are going before hand extenly.

Dont sit it front of little kids on the plane

When it comes to money, dont bring much cash(only bring enough for emergency) but bring things like traverlers checks or a credit card that will give you all the money back if its stolen.

You can never be too safe when it comes to traveling.

Take a carry on and pack a change of clothing in it. Even if your checked luggage is lost, you will have something to wear for the first night.

Pack snacks in our carry on. Many flights no longer provide a snack or a meal.

When traveling international, keep your passport on you.

Don't attempt to jump out of a moving plane, train, or automobile.
Do not whistle, as the person next to you may be a pyschopath and attempt to decapitate you.
If asked to join the mile high club, simply respond that you'd rather get high closer to ground.
Avoid carrying bacon when walking next to bomb dogs

If the credit card is stolen, It usually can be cancelled after the mugging or gunpoint robbery, Not when it comes with money.

Make sure you weight-balance your luggage before going to the airport. I know someone who had to leave behind a lot of stuff, since he didn't evenly distribute it between his suitcases. This was in another country, prohibitively expensive to go to more often than every 2-3 years (more if with others).

Guys, if you can, please try to lock all your bags. If you don't, in certain countries, there are people who will put illegal items like drugs into unlocked lugguage bags so that you will end up carrying the drugs through the custom for them. Well, if you are lucky enough to go through the custom with the drugs undetected, these thugs will approach you to collect their stuff.

So please be careful guys. Lock your bags. Cheers! Smile

Be sure you know the emergency numbers where you are going.
Know where on the road (left, right, down the middle) the emergency service travel and what they look like.
Always have the numbers with you with which you block your credit cards if they get stolen.
If you have children make sure they bring along their favourite stuffed animal and make sure they don't forget it at the hotel or something, else you won't notice it untill you are nearly at your final destination.
