Important tips you should know before going on your trip.

Here are some tips on attire when traveling:

  • Research your destination – Pack attire appropriate for the culture, customs, climate, and activities. Modesty and conservative clothing is advisable for religious sites.
  • Choose fabrics wisely – Natural breathable fabrics like cotton and linen work for hot climates. Wool, polyester is good for colder weather.
  • Layer – Bring clothes you can layer like light sweaters, scarves, and vests to adjust to changing temperatures.
  • Comfort first – Consider clothes that are loose, stretchy, wrinkle-resistant, and easy to wash and wear repeatedly.
  • Protect from sun – Bring a hat, UV protection clothing, and sunglasses for outdoor activities.
  • Check dress code – Some religious sites, fancy restaurants, and clubs may have outfit requirements.
  • Shoes – Have closed-toe shoes suitable for walking, and sandals for casual wear.
  • Accessories – Scarves, jewelry, and bags can dress up basic outfits.
  • Plan for activities – Have attire suitable for hiking, swimming, exercise, etc.
  • The goal is to pack light, plan versatile ensembles, respect local values, and focus on practicality and comfort when deciding what to bring.

Here are some tips for bargaining when traveling:

  • Research – Know the average prices and negotiation norms at your destination before bargaining. Understand fair value.
  • Start low – Begin with an offer well below the asking price so there’s room to negotiate up. But don’t lowball to the point of offense.
  • Be polite and friendly – Smile and establish a rapport with the seller. Don’t argue or insult. Persuade them you’re a serious buyer.
  • Spot motivation – Look for clues if the seller needs to make a quick sale or get rid of overstock. Use that as leverage.
  • Know when to walk – Be prepared to politely walk away if you can’t agree on a price. Your business is valuable.
  • Bring cash – Paying cash gives more bargaining power as there are no card processing fees. But use discretion for safety.
  • Let them make the first offer – This gives you insight into their pricing expectations. Counter from there.
  • Remain flexible – Be willing to meet halfway. Don’t get fixated on one price. Compromise if needed.
  • Remember to keep it friendly, have fun, and respect when the seller won’t budge. With practice, you’ll gain confidence to bargain respectfully.

Here are some tips regarding currency when traveling internationally:

  • Research exchange rates and currency conversions before your trip. Rates fluctuate frequently.
  • Inform your bank/credit card company of your travel plans to avoid frozen accounts.
  • Withdraw local currency from ATMs at your destination. This usually provides the best exchange rates and fees.
  • Carry a mix of cash and cards. Cash is useful for small purchases, cards for major ones.
  • Avoid exchanging money at airports as they tend to have high fees/poor rates. Exchange at banks instead.
  • Look for currency exchange places that charge low commissions and fees if needing to exchange large amounts.
  • Request bills in smaller denominations. They are easier to use for petty purchases and tips.
  • Keep an emergency stash of USD or Euros. These are accepted many places if unable to find local currency.
  • Store extra cash/cards in different secure locations in case of loss/theft. Never carry all your money together.
  • Check if your bank reimburses ATM fees when traveling internationally. Otherwise, minimize withdrawals.
  • Carry a calculator or currency conversion app to help with transactions in unfamiliar currencies.
  • Keep receipts to reconcile charges/exchange rates when you return home.
  • With some pre-planning, you can avoid excessive fees and get the best rates when traveling abroad. Just remember to always exercise caution when carrying money overseas.

  • Research your destination beforehand to locate hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, and doctors that speak your language. Many destinations have facilities that cater to tourists.

  • If you plan to visit religious/cultural sites, check their open days and hours around holidays when they may close or have limited access.
  • Holidays like Christmas, New Year’s, etc. generally require advance reservations for flights, hotels, restaurants, events etc. Book well in advance for trips around peak holidays.

  • Some holiday weekends come with higher rental costs for cars, extra nightly rates at hotels, and surge pricing for taxis/rideshares. Factor this into your budget.
  • Popular destinations may be very crowded on three-day weekends created by adjacent public holidays. 
  • Research events tied to local holidays that you can participate in, like festivals, parades, fireworks displays and more.
  • Being aware of the local holiday schedule can help you better plan activities and avoid surprises during your trip. Leverage holidays to experience one-of-a-kind cultural events.
