Last week, Leanne of From Australia to Italy shared with us some of the tips she passes on to her travel clients. Today, she is back with more!
Leanne’s Readers Report … Tips for Real Travelers, Part II
1) This sounds simple, but you would be surprised at how many tourists walk around with all of their money on them.
Please don’t do this!
A good idea is to rent a safe from the hotel and take only the absolute minimum with you. The same applies with credit and bank cards. I have customers who are robbed in Rome pretty much every week and they always have hundreds – or sometimes thousands – of euros on them. If you don’t do it at home then don’t do it in a foreign country.
2) Before you leave for an international trip, make sure your passport has at least 6 months validity remaining. We have had a few families this year who were stuck behind in the UK because one of their passports had less then 6 months until it expired.
Thanks, Leanne for reminding us of these great travel tips!
