Be Flexible with Your Travel Plans
Planning is a good way to go traveling, be it domestically or internationally, but don’t disregard the fact that things can and most likely would not go as planned. This could either be due to suddenly the activity you want to do is unavailable or if more logistical issues force you to think of other ways to do things. Keep in mind that plan is a good base, but when you are traveling and there are a lot of external factors involved, it will be a different kind of adventure.
Bring Extra ATM & Credit Cards During Your Travel
There is a saying that doesn’t keep all your money with your person when you travel, but that doesn’t mean you should not bring extra money at all. Keep extra credit and atm cards with you when you travel. This will help greatly when things go south and believe me, it probably will. Keeping cards instead of cash with your person is better and safer.
