Travelling to a foreign land can be exciting, and with some careful planning, you can make your travelling safe and rewarding. Here’s our two cents.

Inputs from Sumita Tulsiani, co-founder and director of TravelDilSe, an AI-powered virtual travel specialist that curates worldwide holiday experiences.

Validity of passport

One should always check the expiration date on the passport before your travel. Several countries will deny travellers entry if the passport expires in less than six months.

Travel insurance a must

The cost of getting medical treatment abroad is very expensive in case you fall sick or get hurt. This insurance comes to your aid not only for medical care but also covers for flight delays, baggage lost and cancellations.

Arrange finances well

Plan your expenses in advance and take some cash, but use forex cards for other needs as they are safer to carry and cheaper than debit and credit cards.

Smart packing

Avoid overpacking, carry clothes and gears suited to the weather, get adapters suited to foreign sockets, travel documents, medications, other electronics, and most important a travel lock.

Familiarise with the culture

Research on the local norms and traditions to get a feel for the culture and maybe learn basics of local language like hello, thank you, please and hand gestures used by the county of travel. Keep a map of the city handy and on your phone. Research and download any apps that may help you navigate locally.

Book everything in advance

To avoid last minute hassles and scams, make your travelling arrangements in advance – flight tickets, accommodation, local transport, sightseeing, valid visa (if visa is not on arrival) and international roaming mobile packs or SIM cards. Bookings done in advance also gives benefits on pricing.
