CHECK THE WEATHER

This is perfect especially for those people who are planning to travel internationally. One of the wisest thing to do before you fly to your destination is to find out what the weather is going to be like once you’re there. This is because, you should be aware of what kind of clothes you will wear and bring. For instance, you are from New York City, and it is December, so it is most likely winter and it is currently snowing, you are traveling to Australia in just a few days, unlike in the US, and the rest of the world, it is actually summer in Australia during the holidays, so instead of bringing those bulky coats, sweater, gloves, and jackets, you’ll only bring singlets, shorts, a hat, and swimwear.

WEAR/BRING PROPER SHOES

Shoes can actually take too much space in your luggage, so the wisest thing to do is to only bring two pairs of different types of shoes. It can be pretty difficult to decide especially if you’re a woman. For instance, you’re from Los Angeles, California, and you are traveling to London, England. Since you will be checking on the weather, you’ll find out that it rains in London almost all the time, so instead of bringing some boots and stuffing it in your luggage, simply wear it, and just put some other shoes you will need when you get there.

DOCUMENTS DUPLICATOR

Another wise thing to do is to scan all of your documents, such as visa, passport, identification cards, every type of important document you have and send it all to your email. It is also best to take photos of them on your phone. The reason for this is for you to have an extra copy of these documents in case they get lost or if it gets stolen. Send these emails to yourself before you get out of your house. Make sure to save them all.

EVERYTHING IS FRAGILE

It is best to actually mark your bags as fragile, so that they would actually handle your baggage correctly and with care. They would also make sure that your baggage is at the very top and it will also be one of the firsts to be released.

A PEN IS A MUST HAVE

Some people may think that pens can easily be accessed but it is actually not. Flight attendants actually don’t have any of those most of the time, so be sure to bring a pen or two. The pen is actually for filling out custom forms.
