  • Essential Preparations for Your Trip

    Filed Under: Blogging

The better prepared you are, the smoother your travel. A bit of time spent in preparation for a trip abroad – from booking travel insurance to mapping your route – can pay dividends in stress reduction and time saved for enjoying yourself.

Check your insurance needs and purchase international travel insurance for your trip. Remember Medicare and Medicaid, and private insurers, do not usually cover you for trips abroad. Choose a plan including emergency assistance, prescription drugs and repatriation coverage.

Leave copies of your passport, insurance documents, credit cards and itinerary at home or with a trusted friend or relative. If something goes wrong it’s easier for them to help you out. Take all the phone numbers you need to cancel cards and claim on insurance from abroad.

Check your route and itinerary and plan where you will be at certain times. It can be a good idea to register your travel plans with the State Department , especially if you are travelling long-haul. This way you can be easily contacted in the event of a family emergency or crisis where you are vacationing.
