5 Last Minute Travel Tips for Any Adventurer
Let’s run through five pieces of last-minute information that could make all the difference for your upcoming adventure.
1.aTake Copies of Important Documents
Taking your main documentation is a fairly obvious step for any traveller. What might be less apparent is the need to take a back-up of your items. Things like visas and passports can be a massive loss if they go missing.
1Cover cites this as one of their most important packing tips and highlights the different ways that you can pull it off. There’s the old-fashioned method of printing out everything. Or, use the more contemporary measure of saving them as PDFs in the cloud.
2. Organise Meeting Points
Pick a meeting point in every city you go to. This is again often overlooked but can serve as a massive time and stress-saver for holidaymakers and long-term travellers alike. Having a designated spot to meet back at in every city you visit means you’ll never be separated from a group for long.
This is particularly useful if you’re a family travelling with young kids. A top tip here would be to teach them how to get back to the safety point like it’s a game. The spot could be “home base” – and the Guardian suggest a meeting point in their top tips for travelling.
3. Get Insurance
Make sure you have insurance before heading abroad. It’s not uncommon for items to go missing when you’re abroad. By having insurance, you can receive compensation for your missing items.
Failing to do this means you’re running the risk of losing out on a lot of money if one of your more precious items does go astray at some point. Is it really worth taking the gamble? The answer is no.
4. Buy Lots of (Healthy) Snack Food
Sure, you know you’ll need to stay fully loaded on food throughout your trip, but you probably haven’t really considered what goes into maintaining your energy levels over the course of a regular day.
FitnessMagazine provides a list of some of the most beneficial and nutritional snack foods to chow down on. If you stick to some of these more savoury bites, you’ll find the pounds will stay off, while motivation levels stay primed.
5. Get a Job While on the Road
You’d be surprised how helpful it can be to find a job when you’re off on your travels. Finances tend to run out more quickly than many people expect, so it’d be wise to find a continued source of income if you’re off on your journeys for the long haul. This naturally won’t be an issue if you’re only heading off for a week or two away.
