Top Travel Mistakes to Avoid in 2014


Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

2013 is wishing us farewell and it’s time to lay down new resolutions, targets and some travel plans. We have a tendency to learn from previous year’s experience and build succeeding ones higher. It’s about time for travelling also. Presenting few travel mistakes to avoid in this year.

Mistake 1: Applying for Passport late, really late

British Passport with Microchip




This is the most basic yet most common mistake. Life will surprise you with an international trip just when you aren’t expecting one. If you don’t have a passport, add that to your list of New Year resolutions. You may not have an international travel plan in near future, but some time you find exclusive travel deals like you find flying to foreign is cheaper than flying to domestic destination. Besides, passport could be a strong address proof! Visit the official passport website and get going. All it takes is two working days, and a thousand bucks.

Mistake 2: Try to cover everything in one trip




When you visit any destination, explore not more than you can absorb. Checking-in on Facebook or Foursquare isn’t a metric of happiness. If you like a destination, get back it once after some years and explore a new side of it.

Mistake 3: Booking too late



Start your travel planning four-five months before your flying dates. Book your flight and apply for visa at least minimum 3 months in advance. Book your hotels six to eight weeks ahead. Within the remaining time, purchase currency, examine the place, culture, food, experience and decide what all are you going to experience. Keep a watch on flight fares and currency trends. Besides convenience, booking early will save your money.

Mistake 4: Not trying local food



Or worse, avoiding it! Do you think all type of local foods is good for your health? Then why will the local food in a land you are visiting harm you? It is sinful to not try local food at local joints. Key is to seek out the good and hygienically ones. Ask the natives, or just check the group and queues outside these eateries. Local food is completely different, unique to the place, cheaper and simply accessible. Given all this it’s worth some minor turbulence in the stomach.
