Planning tips and advice
Travelling is such an amazing experience but regardless of how we all like to do it, travel also means travel planning. Some plan a little, some plan a lot.
Whichever way you do it, travel planning is integral to your trip and your holiday. It can be the difference between having a great trip and a not so good one.
General things to consider when planning your travel are:
- Correct documentation: passport, visa, electronic pre-approval
- Getting travel insurance
- Doing research for accommodation, transport, tours
- Booking flights or other transportation
- Booking accommodation
- Checking for travel warnings with relevant authorities
- Researching and planning an itinerary
Throughout our travel articles, we provide tips and advice on many of these items. Here, we also give you more specific planning tools.
We have a dedicated Trip Planner where you can enter in your destination, dates and preferences and it will return a range of itineraries for your consideration. From here you can book tours, experiences, even flights and accommodation.
All of our travel product reviews can be found here also. Check out reviews on such things as cable organisers for all our electronic equipment that we travel with, portable travel wifi, travel security and a range of backpacks.
