As we slowly emerge from the pandemic and borders begin to reopen, many of us are excited to start planning our next adventures. But as experienced travellers know, traveling can be stressful and challenging, especially if you’re visiting a new place for the first time.
That’s why I wanted to start a discussion and ask: What’s your best travel tip?
For me, one of the best travel tips I’ve received is to always bring a second phone with you and leave it at the hotel. If you lose your phone or have it stolen, you can always go back to the hotel and find your second phone there, connect to the wifi and still be able to reach out to friends/family, check in for your return flight etc
Whether it’s a packing hack, a budget-saving technique, or a piece of advice that’s helped you navigate a foreign culture, I want to hear it all! Share your favourite travel tips with the community and help us all make the most out of our future trips
So true! I remember paying 40€ for a taxi in Naples that took me from the train station to the city centre. When I had to come back, I took another taxi from the city centre to the train station and it costed me 25€…
I second this! Especially if you’re on a connecting flight!
I worked in tourism before and so many of our guests’ suitcases were lost during transit, so having 1-2 outfits in your carry-on is something I now also do!
Also: inform yourself about the tipping culture beforehand. Let me say that we weren’t very popular in restaurants after spending so much time in China and completely forgetting some people expect a tip.
