Have you packed…
- Airline Tickets
- Accommodation booking information
- Travel Insurance documents
- Credit cards/debit cards/other forms of money
- Local currency
- Printout of important numbers
- Photocopies of travel documents
- Drivers licence
- Letter from your doctor for prescription medications
- Prescription medications (and other things like prescription glasses/contact lenses)
- Camera and memory card and charger
Know how early you need to be at the airport
For international flights, this is usually between 2.5 and 3hrs. Check with your specific airline.
Check in online
Web check in for international flights has saved us a lot of time and waiting around in lines. If your confident to do so give it a go.
Luggage locks and zip ties
Make sure you have luggage locks and zip ties. Zip ties are a handy way to know if your luggage has been tampered with (we usually make a destinctive mark on the zip tie to ensure one hasn’t been cut off and replaced).
Car and House Keys
Leave your car and house keys with a family member or someone you trust.
Make sure your bills get paid
If your bills are direct debited make sure you have enough in your account for your bills to get paid. If they are not, arrange early payment or other means of payment.
Take a list of important numbers you need
Anything from the parents to emergency contacts (eg. hospitals) to embassies. You never know what you might need and it’s great to have it at the ready.
Photocopies of all travel documents
Copy all your important travel documents such as passport, debit cards, travel insurance, accommodation bookings etc. Keep a copy with you and leave a copy at home with a family member, just in case you happen to lose anything or worse, something gets stolen. Leave a copy of your itinerary with your family/friends with contact numbers and addresses of where you will be staying.
Check your carry-on and checked luggage
Do you have everything you need in carry on? Anything important that you can’t lose should be on carry on with you like medications, passport, tickets, accommodation vouchers, debit cards etc.
On the other hand, are there things that you have in carry on that shouldn’t be? For example, like liquids over 100ml or hazardous objects
Notify your bank
Make sure you notify your bank of the details of your holiday (i.e. where you are going and the dates of your trip), so your cards don’t get cancelled whilst your holidaying!
