Avoid These Travel Mistakes This Summer

insured conceptCommon Travel Mistakes

As summer approaches, you may find yourself planning a family vacation. While picking the perfect destination and packing your bags, it can be easy to forget a few steps in the process. While it may not seem like a big deal, a simple mistake could lead to big trouble. Make sure to avoid these common travel mistakes to ensure that your holiday is enjoyable!

  • Not checking your passport dates – if you are headed to another country, you will need to bring your passport. While bringing your passport is half of the battle, you should also make sure that it is not expired. An expired passport can lead to you being turned away at customs, missing your entire vacation.
  • Booking too tight of connections – while tight connecting flights may seem like the best way to get to your destination as fast as possible, it does not leave any time for delays. Thousands of planes are delayed every day, and if your first flight is delayed, a tight connection can mean missing your second flight altogether.
  • Packing too much – a heavy suitcase is not only inconvenient, but it can lead to more fees that you have to pay. Packing only what you need will help you travel lighter and have less stress during your vacation.
  • Not packing enough medication – if you have a medication that you have to take each day, make sure that you take enough for the entire time that you will be gone, since you may not be able to get it in a different country. Talk with your doctor to make sure that you have enough to make it through your trip.
