TOP 10 Tricks for Travelers

How can we distinguish an experienced traveler from a beginner? The first one knows where and how to save money without compromising the quality of the trip, knows clever tricks that allow him or her to manage time and prepare for each trip for getting vivid impressions.

We have collected 10 effective tricks for you that greatly facilitate the life of any traveler. Great thanks to our friends from Amur Dating for providing us with this crucial information!

1.     Go on vacation for 10 days
Short trips for three days are wonderful, a seven-day vacation is popular, but 10 is a magic number for a vacation. You will have time to safely reach the resting place and then you will not complain that you have too short vacation.

2.     Let the journey will be planned by someone else
It is great to plan a trip by yourself: to book hotels, to buy air tickets and to choose routes. But if you don’t have time and enthusiasm for this, then buy a tour. All you need to do is to pack your clothes in a bag and go to the station or to the airport.

3.     Set rules traveling with friends
Traveling with friends is fun, but sometimes this trip turns into a series of quarrels. The reasons are the same for everyone: someone from the company wakes everyone up to run to the beach, someone wants to visit all the excursions, and for someone the best place is the pool bar. Remember that you don’t have to be together all the time. Let everyone rest as they want and don’t force others to do the same.

4.     Leave your contact details in the wallet
Everything may happen. Even a very attentive person can forget a handbag in a cafe, and leave a purse on a counter of a store, etc. Therefore, always keep a sticker with a phone number or a business card with your contact information in English in the purse. It will be easier for a person who will find your property to return it.

5.     Make copies of all documents
Make photocopies of all documents – a passport, a visa, a driver's license, an insurance policy, and print an electronic ticket and a hotel reservation (it can be asked for at border control in many countries). These copies should be kept separately from the originals, and the originals should be placed in a safe of a hotel.

6.     Look for a cafe where local people eat
Choose cafes and restaurants not in the tourist places but where local residents eat. Only in this way you can try real national cuisine and spend much less money on it.

7.     Visit the sights for free
You can get acquainted for free with many sights. You only need to take care of it in advance. Classical music fans can also freely visit many interesting concerts – very often free performances are held in churches and temples and you can learn about it on the tourist portals of cities.

8.     Avoid long lines in the airport restrooms
This advice may seem banal but the first restroom of the terminal is always the most crowded. Use other toilets to avoid queues and save your valuable time.

9.     Breakfast with you
This is another famous trick that is constantly forgotten by tourists. If you pay for breakfast in the hotel and you go on an excursion or for an independent walk before opening the restaurant, then you can bring your breakfast with you. It will be your lunch box. This lunch box may include fruit, sandwiches, pastries, yogurt, and a bottle of water or juice.

10.                        How not to get lost in a strange city
This trick is for bold travelers who don’t speak foreign languages. Before taking a walk in a strange city, take a business card at the reception. There should be written the name and the address of the hotel. If you get lost, then just catch a taxi and show a driver a business card. If there is no taxi on the street, then show a business card to some passerby. Perhaps someone will show you by gestures the approximate direction.
