Tips On Traveling‏ Around The World‏

Traveling in a tropical country can be quite an adventure. Before you leave, there are a few things you can do to eliminate future problems.

Do your research before you embark on a trip. Learn about local customs and taboos and be respectful of cultural differences.

Follow the law. Consular supporters cannot dominate local laws, even where local laws appear harsh.


Check the most recent travel guidance for your destination and subscribe to receive free e-mail notice each time the travel advice for your destination is updated.

Check to see if you need visas for the country or countries you are visiting. Be conscious that a visa does not security entry.

Make duplicate copies of your passport details, insurance policy, traveler's check, visas and credit card numbers. Carry one copy in a separate place to the originals and leave a copy with someone at home.


Travelers should remember to check what coverage their health insurance company offers for policyholders abroad. Medicare does not provide coverage outside the United States, but other insurers offer limited coverage overseas. Individual supplementary health insurance policies should cost no more than a few dollars a day for international travelers.

Check with health experts for information on suggested vaccinations or other safety measures and find out about overseas laws on traveling with drugs.

In this day in age, with security at airports and immigration checkpoints higher than ever, there is a good chance that you may be questioned about the little pills you have. Ask your doctor's office to provide you with a letter outlining your health condition and which prescription medications. Because, the customs officers are just doing their jobs, and if you prepare before you leave, you'll have no problems at all.

Forget the 'stay-vacation': This is the year that travel makes a comeback.
