This team of experts has put together a list to help with your travel planning and local travel booking. We want to see you have a safe and wonderful trip.
- Make two copies of your passport, travel visas, airline tickets, insurance documents. Leave one set at home and carry a set with you.
- When using a passport, make sure the expiration date is 6 months past your return date.
- Make a list of the credit cards you will carry with you (bring only the cards you will really need). Leave at home all unnecessary items such as keys, expensive jewelry, etc.
- Advise the companies of the credit cards you will be carrying that you will be making charges away from home, so they don’t assume your card was stolen.
- If renting a car abroad, obtain an International Driver’s License. These are not usually required, but can be beneficial for recognition by local authorities and safeguards your state-issued license.
- Bring a card that includes special medical conditions, allergies, names and numbers of your doctors, even your blood type for medical emergencies.
- Bring prescriptions in their original prescription-labeled bottles and pack them in your carry-on. It’s also a good idea to bring extra supply of prescriptions, extra glasses and a list of the medicines you’ll carry.
- Consider purchasing travel insurance. Your medical insurance may not cover you outside of the United States.
- Use your business address on luggage identification tags when possible.
- Place your name, address and telephone number inside your luggage.
- Stop your mail, newspaper and other deliveries.
- Don’t change the outgoing message on your answering machine. Never use a message that says, “we are out of town”.
- Set and activate a timer for your lights.
- If traveling internationally, bring a converter/adapter, extra memory cards and batteries (or film) for your camera.
- At your destination, carry a piece of the hotel stationary or matchbook with you. This comes in handy when communicating with local taxi drivers or simply remembering the name of the hotel you’re staying at.
