Holidays are the best time of the year. Whether sun, sea and beach or hiking in the mountains - It is supposed to be a nice and relaxing time with the family or the partner. According to the motto “just as you prepare your vacations will be“ you should take some precautions in order to prevent a chaos before your departure.
Firstly, get familiar with the entry requirements of the particular holiday destination because every country has its own peculiarities. In this course you should check your ID card and the expiration date of your passport. It is a frequent practice that your passport has to be valid for another six month at the time of entry in order to get permission to enter a certain country. If you have also planned to rent a car, remember to apply for an international driver license issued by the traffic bureau.
Prevent health risks actively by informing on travel medicine. If necessary, vaccinations have to be refreshed. We also recommend travel insurance, because even a visit at the dentist can be costly in some countries. Moreover, it is always advantageous to have a small first aid kid in the luggage.
Exchange just small amounts of money before your departure. Usually it is cheaper to exchange your money at location due to favorable exchange rates.
Furthermore, we recommend creating the well- known vacation check list. Thus, you won´t forget anything at home. For this purpose, the World Wide Web also offers several ready- made lists to check off whether for summer or winter vacations.
Enjoy your vacations. You deserve them!
