Top 7 Travel Tips for Adventurers
Over the next five years, from 2015 to 2020, adventure travel is expected to grow by almost 50%. Some of this growth is because travel costs are getting cheaper, technology is getting better, and people are getting to know more about other parts of the world. The rest of it comes from the natural sense of adventure that so many of us have.
But deciding to travel to another part of the world or a remote part of your own country or continent is just the beginning. You need to plan if you want your trip to be a real success, with no extra problems or stress points and as much fun as possible.
Here are seven top tips for adventure travelers that will help make your trip everything you want it to be:
Best 7 Travel Tips for adventures
- If you’re traveling alone or with a family, consider renting a home rather than a hotel. Typically offering better accommodations than hotels, websites like Airbnb can provide homes and private rooms to homeowners who are renting them out.
- When packing, roll your clothing. Rolling your belongings into your suitcase makes it possible to pack more than if they were folded. Additionally, you can roll your socks and underwear to maximize space-saving.
- Scan and email to yourself copies of your passport, identification card, and itinerary. This ensures that each has a backup copy in case it is lost or stolen. When I email myself a document, I typically open the email on my iPhone and save it to iBooks since I use an iPhone. I now have an offline record thanks to this.
- Don’t forget to call your credit or debit card company to confirm that your card has been authorized for your international destination before you leave. They are therefore unable to suspect any suspicious activity.
- Designate fragile on your luggage. This is a tip I picked up from a friend years ago who said it was a great way to make sure your luggage is handled properly. Because of this, your luggage is kept at the top and will be among the first to be released.
- Bring a bottle of water with you. Having a water bottle guarantees that you will always have access to water.
- Don’t undervalue the utility of a fanny pack. Yes, they can be embarrassing and look like they’re from the middle to the end of the 1980s, but believe me, every time I travel, even domestically, they guarantee the safety of my valuables and speed up security checks.
