Although, this article is more orientated to those who are backpacking or travelling for extended durations, those who are planning a short trip for vacation. The reason behind this is that although travelling is easy, there are a few details you are going to wish you were aware of before you left on your first international flight. Although, we cannot list all of them, some of what we have described will aid you for your journey to come.
1. Have A Backup Passport
For those who are backpacking, or even those staying in a luxurious resort, this is almost as essential as booking the ticket itself. We strongly advise at least two copies of your passport, one of which, store safely away, where it cannot be lost. The other leave your home country.
The reason that this is a good idea, is what if your handbag gets stolen? What if you have a day out of fun, and forgetfulness, and leave your passport behind? There are so many variables, which may not have a high chance to occur, but the chance is still there. It is better to be safe, rather than sorry.
