Pre-holiday checklist

With a little forward planning and the help of our pre-holiday checklist, you can leave all your worries behind and concentrate on enjoying your holiday.

Here are some tips to help you steer clear of some of the most common mishaps and mayhem that can mess up your holiday.

Before you go:

  • Passport and visas – check passport has at least six months’ validity from date of return to your country, and any visa requirements.
  • Health – take a list of all your current medications, their generic names, dosages and frequency taken.
  • Insurance – travel insurance is as essential as your passport.
  • Mobile devices – turn off global roaming and data on your phone before you leave. Pick up a local SIM card at your destination.
  • Photocopy documents – photocopy your passport and travel documents. Carry a copy with you, separate from your main luggage and leave a copy at home with family.

While travelling:

  • Arrange safe transportation – use reputable transportation companies and avoid unmetered taxis.
  • Keep your belongings safe – keep belongings close to you at all times, be wary of strangers and take care in new and unfamiliar areas.
