Before the trip, we are always full of pleasant expectations. And in order not to spoil all this, it is important to think over all the details. In this article we introduce you five most common mistakes that travelers make during the journey. Remembering about them going on a trip you will save your time and money.We do not print out boarding tickets
XXI century, the latest technology, parcels are delivered by drones, dentures are made with the help of printers. Print the ticket? What are you talking about, paper, what kind of dinosaurs are still using it now? Bought via the Internet ticket we receive on our e-mail and drop it in Dropbox. It will not be lost, even if you drown your phone.
And now imagine that there is no Internet at the airport or, even worse, your phone battery is dead. And this is just a couple of examples of situations, as a result of which you will remain without a reserved seat. Yes, your airline does not require a ticket. But, believe, not every airline company does it.
Conclusion: alway print out your boarding passes for airplanes, trains and buses.
We do not have enough time for transfer
We always want to reach the destination quickly, and you do not have any desire to spend, for example, a day and a half on the road to the sea. This is absolutely normal thinking of each of us. Therefore, if we need to make a transfer along the way, we choose the option where the minimum amount of time is spent. And then we run around the airport in search of the desired way out.
Try to plan your route so that you have a minimum of 60 minutes between the landing of one plane and the take-off of another. With regard to trains, it is worth considering each individual case. In Japan, trains arrive with a second delay, and in Germany the train may be one hour later, or it may be canceled at all. If you get buses, consider the traffic jams.
We trust the description of the hotel on their website
Choosing a hotel, we read its description on the site. Spacious rooms, high-speed Internet, excellent views, nice staff – everything is great. If you are looking for the cheapest option or you just need a place to stay overnight, then let it be, you can trust this description of the hotel. But if you are looking for a place to live, where you spend a few days or even more than week, and do not want your room to look like a stable, then carefully read the hotel reviews on the sites. We also advise you to read comments of other people who have already been to this or that hotel.
We do not backup our photos
During traveling we take a lot of photos. Loads of them. Previously, there were only two occasions for a photo: a holiday and a trip to the mountains or to the sea. Well, okay, still there is a photo for the documents. Photos are a great opportunity to plunge into pleasant memories of a fun time spent while traveling.
“Everything that happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” – this famous phrase can turn into reality for you, if you do not make backups of your photos.
Turn on your smartphone to automatically uploading of the photos to the Cloud, upload pictures from your camera to Dropbox or to any other cloud service. After all anything can happen with memory cards and our electronic devices. And then you will not have any photos at all.
We pack things badly
We always try to shove as many things into our suitcases as possible. And if your T-shirts cab at least get wrinkled, then the liquids may spill. And then your favorite T-shirts will be spoilt with something sweet or chunky.
Take into consideration all our pieces of advice and hope nothing can spoil your traveling!
