Travel Tips

Carry sunscreen and sunglasses every day with you while you are travelling

Be on time as advised by the dedicated tour manager

Having a travel Insurance is very important!

Scan your passport/ identity card photos and save them in your mobile

Try learning a few words of the language of the country you are visiting

Always carry a photocopy of your itinerary with yourself

Self-educate yourself about the local customs of the country before you arrive. You obviously don't want to offend anyone while you travel!

Be kind, polite & Smile often! Being part of a group tour will definitely make it easier for you to make your new travel buddies.

Carry an extra pair of clothes when you are catching a flight in your handbag in case of any unexpected delays

Charge all your gadgets whenever you get time. A great tip - you'll find a USB charging port at the back of your hotel TV!

Try not to exchange your currency at the airport as you won't get the best exchange rate over there

Get earplugs and a sleep mask along with you! They can be very helpful when you are flying or especially during your inter-country commute via tour bus

Track your spending when you're on the trip! It can be tiresome but you'll always be well-informed about all your expenses and the remaining travel budget amount

As tipping is habitual in most of the countries, it's not polite to walk out of the restaurants without tipping anything. You can tip somewhere between 10 to 20 per cent of the total bill value

Let your bank know that you'll be travelling so your card is not blocked for sudden international usage
