Tips for the Savvy Traveller

Being travel savvy comes with experience, so it can be daunting when you’re a new traveller heading for a new holiday destination.
 
Here is a list of 5 things to remember when you’re getting ready for your next trip, so you’ll never feel unprepared again.
 
1. Pack light. Rather than packing for every occasion, pack durable clothes that will last more than one wear. Also be mindful when it comes to packing big bulky objects. You will be thankful when it comes time to lift your luggage, and all that free space can be used for your extra purchases or mementos you want to bring home. 
 
2. Snap yourself happy. Travelling is a great excuse to take photos for lifetime memories of your travel adventures. There is nothing worse than being halfway through a trip and having your SD card full, with no way to store and erase. Don't forget an extra storage card for your camera so you have no limits.  
 
3. Cash on hand. After hours on a plane and travelling through airports, you don’t want to run into trouble trying to find a reputable currency exchange or accessing your money from an ATM. See your bank before you go and organise some small denominations of cash to have on hand, or ask about Travel Money cards that can be pre-loaded with currency before you leave. 
 
4. Document backup. Sometimes things do go missing or get lost on holidays. Email yourself a copy of your passport and other important travel documents online so that if the physical copies are lost, you can still access them. The e-backup will also be lighter on the pocket.
 
5. Don’t over-plan. It can be a good idea to plan out key stops or attractions you want to visit while you’re away, but having a strict and complicated itinerary can have you feeling stressed and missing half the fun of your holiday. Take in the sights, smells and sounds of your surroundings and most importantly, relax. Enjoy the freedom of travel.
