Travel Tips

  • Most of the airlines allow 20Kg in Check in and 7 kg in Hand bag. Check in bag should not be more than 73cms in height and total of height + breadth + width should not be more than 156cms.
  •  Cabin Bag – It should not be more than 55 cm in length. Keep all your valuables in cabin bag such as Passport, air tickets, cash, laptop, camera etc etc. No liquid, no gel, no sharp objects like hair pin, razor, scissor in cabin bag
  • Keep photocopy of travel documents such as passport, visa, air tickets in ALL BAGS of your family.
  • Keep soft copy of all travel documents on internet such as your email id. This is very helpful in case of emergency.
  • Electricity - Please carry Universal adapter with you. Different countries have different electric plug configuration even though voltage is same 220AC Universal adapter ensures that your mobile and cameras are fully charged in all countries.
  • For Visa on Arrival countries, keep at least two photographs, sufficient cash with authorised receipt and tour documents handy at immigration counter.
  • Keep all slips, receipts, tokens given during immigration. These will be needed while returning back from that country. Do not throw or discard any travel document, even though you have utilised the services till you are back in India. These documents will help you in case of emergency such as loss of passport etc.
  • When visiting beach or island destination do not forget to carry extra set of clothes, towels, beach slippers, swimming costumes. Do not wear shoes while visiting beaches. You shall have spoiled and wet shoes for rest of your trip.
  • When visiting beach or island destination -wear shorts or trousers, ladies should wear jeans or salwar kameez. This will help them to have comfortable ride of Parasailing and other water sports.
  • When visiting hill stations or Snow parks in some cities - Do carry woollen caps and gloves with you. Renting these items from snow park is costlier than buying them in India.
  • When visiting shopping destinations - It is better to make your wish list from India. It is better if you check prices of these products in India as well. Many times products are cheaper in India than buying fro abroad.
  • Please check immigration rules of a country for items you may carry with you. Every country has different rules for liquor, cigarettes, tobacco, plants, food products etc.
  • For e.g. carrying KHUS KHUS is an offence in UAE.
  • In Australia, carrying certain food items may not be allowed - please check specific rules.
  • Alarm is a MUST in your travel kit. If you are using your mobile as an alarm, please ensure that mobile is set as per local timing.
  • Carry local currency from India. Buying currency from airports or from hotels is a costly affair. Certain currencies are not easily available in India. Pre plan your currency purchase in advance or carry USD / Euros from India.
  • Carrying Prepaid card is safe option. Travellers Cheques are outdated now.
  • Carrying local SIM from India is a good idea, but check ingoing and outgoing rates carefully with SIM Operator. We advise to use these SIM cards for incoming calls only. Buy a local SIM card from that country with a good outgoing call rates. This will save your lot of money.
  • Medicines - Carry all medicines with you along with Doctors prescription. You should know your medicines by its formulation and not by its brand name. For e.g. If we suffer from fever we take Paracetamol tablets -CROCIN is one of the brand names. In other countries these tablets will be known by different brand names.
  • Respect rules of the foreign land, respect their culture, and respect their cuisine and customs. This will make your holidays more memorable.

  • Get in the habit of looking back when you get up to leave somewhere. Travel is very distracting, and you’re probably carrying more stuff than when you’re at home, so you’re more likely to leave a jacket or journal at that Parisian cafe table where you were people watching.

  • You know how you keep all your bank cards in your wallet/purse when you’re at home? Well, don’t do this while you’re travelling. Keep at least one in a different place, preferably not on your person. If you lose all your cards on the road it is very difficult to get replacements, and being without money in Timbuktu can be kind of unfunny

  • To avoid being pick pocketed, keep your wallet in your front pocket, especially a pocket that can be buttoned up. Best of all, use the inside pocket of your jacket. There are also a load of different ‘money belts’ that either hang inside your shirt or wrap around your waist (under your shirt), etc. Make sure it’s waterproof because travelling can often be sweaty/perspiring work. I’d advice against the bum bag/fanny pack varieties. There is no better way to advertise the fact that you have a load of valuables on you…and, of course, they were never ever cool.

  • Scan your travel documents and email them to yourself. It was traditional to photocopy your passport and visas, travel insurance etc, and keep them in a separate part of your luggage. But that’s old school. These days, digital is best – that way your documents won’t go missing even if your bags do.

  • Only kidding about the turtle necks. It is hard to get to know the locals at a destination if you don’t trust them, but there are limits to how much you should trust them when it comes to your personal safety (going with them into a risky area of town), money, and consuming their food or drink (if they are not consuming it themselves).

  • This is mainly for health costs if you get ill or injured while abroad. Hospital costs can quickly get into the tens of thousands of dollars, even for a minor injury. Insurance is worth it. Visit your doctor before you leave to get all the relevant vaccinations/immunizations for the destinations you’re visiting, and to learn what health precautions you should follow.
  • If you’re travelling abroad then you’re more than likely to be richer than most of the locals, but advertising this fact by wearing gold jewellery or carrying a $2000 camera around your neck is not advisable. It makes you a target for thieves. Leave your jewellery at home and keep your camera in a bag when you’re not using it.
  • It may seem like a breeze, but be advised that teaching yourself to ride a motorbike or Jet Ski in a foreign country is probably unwise. In Thailand, for instance, 38 people a day die in scooter accidents. Nb some travel insurance policies won’t cover scooter-related injuries.
  • If you’re doing a specialist course (scuba diving) or something risky (bungee jumping) then check the operators have legitimate qualifications and a good safety record. There’s usually a reason a course is cheaper than the others. PADI has a list of qualified diving operators.
  • Most notably, travelers leave their bags at their feet or hanging from the back of chairs when they’re at cafes or restaurants. Either keep them on your lap or wrap its strap around your leg.

  • There is a simple rule that people find hard to follow: if you are mugged, give over your wallet, watch etc. This shouldn’t be a problem if you have insurance and you’ve left all your irreplaceable stuff (eg grandma’s necklace) at home. Just do it, and walk away uninjured.

  • There are exceptions to this rule, such as monks seeking alms. But, in general, don’t give away money to people on the street. Apart from the fact that you may have to get your wallet/purse out, encouraging begging is not the most efficient use of your money (and goodwill). If you want to help out then do some volunteer work in the destination or donate some money to a local charity for the homeless or loan some money to a poor entrepreneur

  • Often your travel companions will take risks that compromise your safety. They’ll ask for help from people that you wouldn’t go near, they’ll aggravate a situation with arrogance, or they’ll break any number of the no-nos mentioned above. Don’t submit to their peer pressure. Stand your ground. And if they continue to be unsafe then consider parting ways.
