Many people have vacation horror stories to tell. However, the bottom line is, the nightmare would probably not have happened with good planning. This shouldn’t be a problem. This article will give you tips so you have an enjoyable vacation.

When packing for a journey, consider choosing dark clothing, particularly for pants and dresses. Because these items tend to get wrinkled or dirty when in a suitcase, darker clothing helps to hide these imperfections. To avoid looking too dark, complement your clothing with bright and cheery accessories.

Get a room on the highest floor possible. As meaningless as this sounds, you don’t want to give thieves easier access by having a room on the ground floor. You should also opt for a room without sliding doors whenever possible. The doors make these rooms easier for thieves to enter.

TIP! One important thing to keep in your wallet is a color photograph of your child. This can come in handy if he or she gets lost.

It takes time to acclimate your dog to travel. They need to be thoroughly trained in leash and command use as well as kept on a leash during any portion of travel where people are present. By having good control of your pet while traveling, you can be assured of his safety and well-being.

Avoid waiting until you arrive to obtain local currency. You can get a better exchange rate at home. Try getting foreign currency at an ATM using your debit card. A lot of times these machines offer better exchanges rates, and are cheaper than using an exchange.

Pack light, and be sure to plan your trip when you travel. Planning will allow you to be sure that you will have as much fun as possible during the trip.

TIP! It is customary to tip any hotel staff that makes your stay easier. Generally, you will give one dollar per piece of luggage, and anywhere between two and five dollars a day for housekeeping.

If you are bringing any electric appliances with you on an international trip, check their power standards and, if necessary, purchase an adapter. If you wait till you get to the airport to purchase one, you will likely pay more than twice the local price.

To make the most of your precious travel time, don’t forget to consider how the weather may influence and affect your travel plans. Before departure, check the forecast for the city you will be visiting. If the weather is uncooperative you may need to make last-minute changes to your itinerary.

You should know before you arrive at your destination what the laws and local customs are. Even if you don’t think it’s an issue, you could get into trouble for something considered unlawful or offensive. When you travel, you should try to be on your best behavior.

TIP! These days, you can do almost all of your vacation planning on a single travel site. You can plan your trip on a travel site with little effort.

A hotel is your home away from home while traveling; it is important, however, to remember that you are not alone while staying there. When in your hotel room, be considerate of guests next-door and do not make tons of loud noise or slam your doors. Whatever time of the day it is, someone may be sleeping or dealing with a bad case of jet lag. You don’t have to be completely silent, just be as respectful as you can be.

If you plan to travel out of the country, bring bottled water. Drinking water in foreign countries is usually not purified and can make you very ill. Make sure you use bottled water when choosing to brush your teeth. It’s possible you can get ill from using the tap water in that fashion.

Road trips are a great excuse for bringing your favorite music along, so you can enjoy the ride. When traveling long distances, the radio will often cut in and out; carrying your own music eliminates this problem.

TIP! Beware of emails concerning travel deals. Be sure not to open travel related emails, unless you know which company they are coming from.

Make a packing list. As soon as you know you’ll be traveling, start a list of everything you will need to pack. This can especially help you if you are in a rush to pack, as it will prevent you forgetting things or including unnecessary items.

Workout at the gym prior to your flight. Being on a long flight can be incredibly boring. Not to mention the effects sitting for long time can have on your body. This is why hitting the gym or at least stretching before boarding a flight can lessen or completely eliminate any cramps.

Keep track of your important belongings when traveling. If you are carrying a purse, be sure to have it tucked neatly under your arm. Avoid toting bags that have easily-accessible zipper closures, especially if you will be in very crowded areas. When buying a travel bag, keep this in mind.

TIP! Always plan ahead when traveling by air. Just reaching the airport can be difficult to do quickly, especially if you are traveling through a major city during rush hour.

The bottom line is that a failure to plan is the main cause of most vacation dilemmas and disasters. This piece includes tips capable of helping you plan sufficiently to ensure a terrific, fun and restful trip.
