3. Always remember to book your flights in advance and avoid the hustle at the last moment. This way you would not only be stress free but might find some cheap rates also.

7. Your duration of stay should depend on the places you want to visit. Make sure you do the calculations correctly.
8. If you’re travelling to a place where they don’t talk in dollars, than make sure to change your currency while at home. It’s recommended to change only a little amount as you can find better rates at the place you’re headed to.
9. Ask your hotel if they provide tour guides or any similar services. It’s always better to travel with a guide.
