Five 'P's - Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance
To avoid disappointment, book tickets early through a licenced ABTA or ATOL travel agent.
Always take out adequate travel / health insurance through a reputable supplier.
Check whether you require a visa, as some countries that you would imagine to allow entry without one don't!
Make sure travel documents are valid and have your name on them, with correct spellings.
Take enough of your prescription drugs with you to last the duration of your trip and take a copy of your prescription with you.
Always get to the point of departure early.
Don't drink any alcohol before your departure.
Do keep your baggage within sight at all times.
Carry some small US Dollar bills as in some countries if you pay for entrance fees / camera permits the dollar price is (a lot) lower than the local equivalent.
Buy small denomination local currency from a UK no-commission outlet like the Post Office before you travel.
An International Driving Permit (IDP) allows you to drive a private motor vehicle overseas when accompanied by a valid UK driving licence. If you are thinking of hiring a vehicle overseas outside the EU, obtain an international driving permit.
Other Important Information
Some hotels have dress codes. Shorts, beachwear, flip-flops may not be acceptable in certain areas, like restaurants and certain bars. A jacket and / or tie may be required. Formal dress is often required for gala dinners.
Health and Safety
It is important to remember that hygiene and safety standards in some countries, particularly destinations that are developing a new tourist industry or has no tourism infrastructure, may be considerably lower than the UK, which has some of the highest health and safety standards in the world.
Care should be taken to minimise the risk of holiday travel sickness. Many times alcohol, heat and humidity plus different foods can cause minor upsets.
ABTA travel agents carry a leaflet 'Advice on Health for Travellers' and your GP or Practice Nurse should be able to provide up-to-date health advice on jabs, but they should be consulted well before travelling, say 12 weeks (3 months).
