Travelling is a fun thing to do, especially when you are young, have a decent amount of income and the most important thing is you have a dream. Travelling also can be stressful when you are tired, lost, and not feeling well during traveling. Most people in this world share the same dream which is to travel across the globe but not all of them have travel knowledge. Travel knowledge is very important so that we can prevent any incidents or problems during traveling. So here are short tips for you guys to apply before traveling overseas.
- Health Check-Up
It is very important for travelers to go for a health check-up before traveling overseas. It is because you don’t want to carry diseases to other people’s country and you also don’t want to carry diseases from another country back to your country. That’s why some countries make sure all foreign tourists must be vaccinated before traveling to their country. Furthermore, make sure you take all the medicine with you all the time, especially if you have a pre-existing sickness. It is because when you already have a pre-existing sickness and if something happens to you when traveling the insurance company will not take responsibility. Please make sure you buy or subscribe travel insurance so that you will be sure if something happens to you during your travel, you can claim the bills from the insurance company.
- Check All Your Travel Document
Please make sure all your travel document is completed so that you don’t get stranded during traveling due to lack of travel document. There are a few very important details that travelers always forget about their travel documents. The details are the validity of their passports, country entrance visa if needed, international driving license if needed, and identification card. Make sure all the details are complete so that you will not waste money on buying a new air ticket or other bookings that have been made.
- Money & Security
Money and security are the most important thing for you as a traveler to think about. It is because when you don’t have enough money, you probably will be stranded at other people’s countries longer than it should be. Please bring a sufficient amount of money for your own expense so that you will not feel restricted to spend during traveling. Besides, please change the amount of money you want to bring to the local currency so it will make it easier for you to spend it because most countries don’t accept our country’s currency. Next, this is optional but it’s better to apply for overseas withdrawal so that you can hope if the pocket money that you bring along earlier finish or not enough it also can be security if any incident happens and you need instant money to go to hospital or clinic during traveling.

This is a basic tip that all travelers across the globe should know which is luggage packing. The most important rule is to pack your own luggage because we are afraid of an irresponsible person hiding drugs in our bags or some other any restricted things.
