Planning for Your Vacation - Planning for Emergencies
September 10, 2011 · Print This Article
When planning your holiday there are a few key points you should do to protect yourself in case of an emergency or unexpected delay. Here are a few ideas:
1. Check with your credit card co. to see what the exchange rate will be when using your card;
2. Check www.zvs.com to make sure you don’t need a visa or shots when entering foreign countries;
3. Let your credit card company know you will be in a foreign country with your dates of travel so they can expect charges coming in from that country;
4. Bring 2-3 credit cards to make sure you are not caught in an embarrassing situation where your card is denied because the cc company is “safety conscious”;
5. Photo copy your credit cards and passports, keep a copy at home;
6. Photocopy your complete itinerary and leave with friends/family;
7. Photocopy your travel insurance information and leave a copy with friends so if you need it in a hurry you can call them;
8. I always give my Clients my 800 number and tell them to give it to their friends so if someone needs to reach them and it’s a foreign country, I will be able to assist in an emergency;
9. Buy a small travel purse with a “cross shoulder” strap to carry your passports and money next to your body;
10. Immediately check your passport - is it valid for at least 6 months AFTER you return home?
