7 Things To Keep in Mind Before You Travel

We never dreamed that a microorganism would hold the globe captive and lock us all in our houses for weeks. We’ve experienced reality is stranger than fiction’ from March 2020 till lately. Even if life is returning to normal, the pandemic continues to stalk us until we get that much-needed shot in the arm.

We missed travel most during the shutdown. Travelling is now more responsible than ever because of the epidemic. We must all exercise extreme caution to travel, discover, and celebrate safely.

As you travel in quest of excitement and refreshment, consider these 5 tips. So, ready for more adventure?

1) Learn About Local Laws

As a first step, familiarise yourself with the fundamental regulations of the host nation, notably the rules of the road. In many nations, the penalties for the slightest infraction are severe.

It’s important to protect yourself as a visitor by being aware of your rights. Last time,  I went to RAK and avoided driving. We got ourselves a driver with a Ras Al Khaimah driving license.

2) Learn Basic Language

Since the advent of Google Translate, linguistic boundaries have virtually vanished. However, you shouldn’t rely on it too much; after all, what if you suddenly lose internet access? The consequences of an inappropriate word choice might be severe.

You don’t have to become fluent immediately, but you should make an effort to acquire some basic phrases and vocabulary. Doing so will assist you avoid falling for any cons and endear you to the locals.

3) Keep Your Documents Safe

The significance of this cannot be overstated in any way! Create many copies of your passport as well as any other important papers. You should always have one set on you, another set at the place where you’ll be staying, another set at the embassy of your nation, and a fourth set with individuals you can trust back at your own residence.

Your passport is the MOST essential document you need to keep with you at all times since anything can happen at any time. You should give it your life to protect it.

Also, make sure you always have a little notepad in your pocket with important phone numbers. It is possible to take notes on the phone, although doing so may cause the battery to die. In light of this, it is imperative that you bring along a portable charging device.

4) Get Health Insurance

5) Exchange Money Smartly

Converting money at the airport can appear to be the simplest thing to do, but in reality, it is a trap set up by the devil himself. A massive con, as a result of which you will wind up spending a great deal more money than you had anticipated.

Instead, exchange the money through a bank or an ATM; you will be grateful to me in the future if you do this!

6) Don’t Post Everything on Social Media

Everyone in our group enjoys updating our social media accounts and informing others about our travels. It’s high time you kicked this bad habit. If you always keep others informed about where you are and what you are doing, it will be much simpler for individuals who wish to hurt you to find out where you are and take action against you. Consider the fact that they are aware of your whereabouts, as well as the people you are with and the activities you are engaged in. Is it not frightful?

After you get back from your vacation, update your blog or upload some images of it. Not a terrible deal, no?

7) Use Public Transport

Last but not least, use public transport for your safety.

When you are in a new place, always prefer public transport. This will not only save money but also ensures luggage safety. We also used the Dubai to Oman bus on our last trip to Dubai.
