<ol><li> 1. Planning A Trip? Look Into These Tips! Many people imagine themselves traveling the world. There are a lot of things you must know, though, before embarking on your journey. These tips will help you truly enjoy your trip. Most people live and die by reserving the seat next to the window; however, you should consider one on the aisle. Aside from the view, window seats don't have many benefits. An aisle seat gives you better access to the baggage storage, bathrooms, airline staff, as well as prevent you from being squeezed on both sides. Make a list of what you need to pack. Well in advance, you need to craft a clear list of everything that you are going to need. That way, even if you wait to pack until you're in a time crunch, the list can help you avoid clutter and to stay organized. Whenever you travel, only bring what you need and travel light. The less you bring, the fewer things you are likely to lose or have stolen. Take only a few shoes, as they add unnecessary weight to your bags. This suggestion is not meant to scare you, but make sure that you are using a recommended taxi service as there is always a chance you could be getting into a bogus vehicle and robbed. Ascertain the taxi you're taking is actually legitimate before stepping inside it. Anyone can pose as a taxi service, and you don't know what someone might do or where you might be taken. Sign up for a travel price watcher. This feature is offered by some websites and lets you input your desired destinations for it to watch. This can save you loads of money. This strategy can eliminate the need to constantly check for lower prices. Take advantage of travel-related online forums. Finding a community of fellow travelers to share experiences and socialize with is one of the best ways to prepare for a trip. It will help you make friends and even help you avoid mistakes during your trip. Plan your trip around rush hour. If you can't avoid a rush hour in a city, stop at that time for a meal or rest. This is the time to grab a snack or let your children run around for awhile. You may want to pack up everything you have while traveling. Don't take too much; leave toiletries you don't need at home. List toiletries you use daily and cannot be without. Then pack the things that will be most essential to you and your comfort. If one has their motorcycle license, a motorcycle can be a good means of travel for road trips or day trips. They are fuel efficient, fast and fun!

There are long stretches you may encounter without a service stop. Plan your route and while doing so look for viable service stations that can handle maintenance on your vehicle. Make sure you keep the numbers for a few different service stations along the way just in case you need to be towed. If you're taking a trip that requires a rental car, try reviewing the insurance policy of the car before you leave your home. These rental car agents know how to sell extra insurance to you, but the issue is that you might not need it. Vehicle insurance policies often have some third party liability coverage. So it is important to check with your auto insurance company before beginning purchasing an additional policy. Research currency rates before you travel so you can easily budget your expenditures. You will know how much you are able to spend and even save money. You're going to have more fun this way, and you're not going to spend too much money. The use of travel agencies has declined for a reason; everyone books trips online because it is so convenient. When you visit a good travel site, you can plan an excellent itinerary quickly and easily. While sitting in front of your computer, you can book your flights and your hotels and arrange for rental cars. Reviews of hotels with pictures are instantly available. In addition, these sites can offer you some tremendous savings opportunities, including package deals and discounts for travel plans made at the last minute. If you are going on a road trip, factor in time for service stops. When traveling by car, you may have long periods when there are few options for vehicle service. Know where you are going to stop in advance so you can make sure your car is in good working order. You can then retain a list of contact numbers on your person so that you can handle these situations more easily if anything happens. If you want to travel to a new country, don't exchange currencies at the airport. Exchange rates are high because of the convenience factor. You can avoid having to do this by searching out nearby banks and exchange centers prior to embarking on your travels. You will want to plan a vacation eventually. When you learn about travel ahead of time, the travel experience will be less stressful, more economical and more enjoyable as well. These tips will help you travel stress free. </li></ol>
