Stress Reducing Tips for Travelling

Going on holiday is something that many of us look forward to all year round. Whilst the aim is to spend a week or two relaxing, travelling can often prove more stressful than staying at home! With these tips, you'll be free to sink into the relaxation of your trip wherever you are, and avoid potential stress inducing issues. 

1) Check that your passport is in date

Before even booking your holiday, check the date on your passport. Remembering to pack your passport is one thing, but arriving at the airport check-in desk to find you are overdue a passport renewal could ruin your entire holiday.


2) Exchange currency in advance

If you're looking for good currency exchange rates, waiting until you are at the airport is the wrong way to go. A few weeks before you fly, have a browse online to find the best rates - you could save yourself a lot of money!

3) Avoid excessive roaming charges

Before you leave the UK, switch off data roaming on your mobile phone and resort to using only WiFi in your hotel (if available). Otherwise, why not contact your provider to discuss discounted rates outside of the UK?

4) Double check your luggage weight

Before leaving for the airport, be sure to check online the exact baggage allowance for your airline. Whilst many assume that luggage allowance is universal to each airport, this is not the case. Baggage allowance is specific to each airline, so in order to abide by these rules and eliminate the risk of having to pay excess fees, check these in advance.

5) Make sure you are insured

To keep your mind at rest, it is important to ensure that you are always prepared and protected, should a worst case scenario arise. In order to achieve this, it is important to invest in a good quality travel insurance policy.
