Have you been bitten by the travel bug? If so, you are likely ready to start planning your next destination. Here are some things Crystal Lake Travel wants you to know about international trips:
1. Get paperwork in order
If you are applying for a passport for the first time, you will need to make an appointment at a passport acceptance facility. From there, passports can take up to six weeks to process. Have a soon-to-expire passport? Renewal times can also take a few weeks. Make sure to plan ahead. Children, including infants, also need a valid passport when traveling internationally. If you are applying for your child’s first passport prior to the trip, make sure to allow plenty of time for the application process.
2. Keep money safe
Planning on bringing both cash and credit cards for your day-to-day spending? Keep both safe while on your travels by using under-clothing storage accessories such as a money belt. It’s also recommended to divvy up the cash and credit cards so they’re not all in one place. Of note: if you choose to pay with credit cards while on your trip, be sure to ask about the fees that come with using them overseas.
3. Use a travel agent
Let the experts at Crystal Lake Travel take the hassle out of planning your international getaway vacation easier. They can handle every aspect of your trip, from flights to accommodations to excursions.
