So you have pack your bags, ready to head to the airport carrying that very affordable airfare you got from Airlines Northwest, the question is Have you prepared enough for your trip?

1. Do your research in advance

Knowing as much as you can about where you are headed is a great tool for any traveler. Do your researches; ask your family or friends that have visited the same place previously about their experiences and for any tips that they can share with you.  You may also want to check online as the internet offer millions of information on practically all the places that you may consider traveling into including all the peculiarities of the place, for example you have contacted someone in Japan and paid a hefty sum in advance for a car that you will drive while there, the problem is when you got there you found out too late that Japan’s road system is a right hand drive. You find it very difficult to drive on the right side and you are not up to the challenge. So you decided you will not take the risk of driving on the ‘wrong side of the road’, the problem is no refund is offered for your advance payment. Not only is that money wasted, but it already left an unpleasant experience on your travel. If you have done adequate research prior to boarding the plane you booked through Airlines Northwest, you might have avoided the not so great experience.

2.  Always keep your passport and some money on your person

Traveling, especially to other countries, may entail you to take necessary precautions. And one such measure is to have your passport and some money with you all the time. Events out of your control may suddenly happen; like your luggage get sent to another place and you have to wait a day or two so it can be brought back to you. If you have some money with you then it will not be such a hassle, and will not mar your overall travel experience.

3.  Don’t flaunt your wealth

Depending on where you are headed or staying, it is sometimes advisable to stay under the radar to avoid attracting petty criminals. Most top tourists places anywhere in the world teems with people all the time, there may be one or two among these people whose main purpose is to prey upon tourists such as yourself, if you are not flashing expensive jewelries, then these petty criminals may not look twice at you. However, if say you are staying in a posh Mexican or Caribbean hotel then you can wear all the jewels and trappings of wealth that you like because you know security in these posh places are high.

There are more things you can do to make your travel anywhere in the United States, Australia, Canada, and across the globe to be as pleasant, as exciting and as safe you can make them.

    Totally agree with point no 2! My friend’s son’s family from the Netherlands was vacationing– husband, wife, 3 kids – when they had a problem on their connecting international flight. Two of their luggages got sent to another place and they have to wait for 4 days before they got their luggages back. It created a huge problem for them because their travel documents and money were on one of those luggages..poor kids. The airline staff was very apologetic though but oh well, it was such a hassle!
