When travelling you want to make sure that you are going to have the best opportunity to travel without worrying about unexpected travel occurrences. While you may forget your extra socks, there are certain things you should not forget because the impact could be debilitating.
1.Make a list of everything you need to do before you leave on your trip. If you have plants, fish, pets which need to be taken care of, remember to arrange for the appropriate care and leave detailed instructions so there will be no question of what the caretaker should do.
2.Contact any memberships you may have which may offer certain discounts or assistance with travel insurance and amenities. The company you may work for may also offer special assistance and discounts.
3.If you are travelling out of the country make sure to check the requirements and have all your documents at the ready.
4.Find out what the procedure and expenses are for lost documents and misplaced travel tickets.
5.Compare quotes from travel insurance companies to get the best rate and the type of coverage you need for any unexpected travel. Make sure to consider the area you are travelling to (think natural disaster potential) and if you will be engaging in any sports or extreme activities (bungee jumping); look for insurance which can cover those.
6.Before you leave, double check and ensure that any departure and return plans are in place. In the event a departure or return is delayed, speak with your travel insurance to find out what is covered for those unexpected travel situations. Also check with travel companies for procedures to follow in those scenarios.
