Tips for Stress-free Travel

Welcome back home, Ms. Y!

Have a Plan

  • PPP. Plan, Plan, Plan. Even when you have only one day ahead of time notice, you can still prepare for that air-travel trip. Have a check-list of the things you need. Make sure you have all the necessities for travel, whether it be a one day or a one month trip. There have been so many articles written and posted on the internet about the ABC's of travel. Google "travel tips" or similar phrases, if you are not sure what to do. I am pretty sure that is how you got to this webpage. Make a checklist. Make a 'map' of things to do. Simply, make a list. Tickets, money, toiletries, luggage, maps, outfit, weather, taxi, directions to the destinations, these are only some of the things that you need to know in your planning. 
  • Use the guide from other web travel writers (below). Just use the slider to see all the link pictures. Click on the link, and click on the purple tab "Source", to get to the website.

Your trip planning might be a success and everything is going right as planned. Then, at the last minute the plan hit a snag. Are you ready to change plans in a moment's notice? Maybe there is a mechanical problem with your airplane. Maybe it hit a flock of birds. Maybe the weather changed all of a sudden. What to do now? Do you have a contingency plan? Now is the time to think of contingency planning just in case. Don't leave home without this.
