5 Key Things to Do Before Traveling Abroad

Travel Abroad

November 6 2019 - When thinking about how to plan an international trip, you might find yourself overwhelmed by all that must be done. In order to make it less stressful for you, we've narrowed it down to the essentials.

Keep reading to learn about 5 things to do before traveling abroad.

1. Secure Important Documents

One of the most important things to have on your international checklist is your passport and related travel documents. After you've made sure that your passport is not expired, put it away in a safe but accessible place, such as in a pocket with a zipper or in a money wallet.

If where you're going requires a visa or other documentation, then you should contact the nearest relevant embassy to start the process. Many embassies are not known for their fast service, so the sooner you begin the better.

2. Prepare Your Money


Credit cards can be very convenient but you might end up with international charges from your bank if you use it abroad. With this in mind, you should save your credit cards for emergencies and have enough of the local currency as your main source of cheddar.

You can usually order the exact amount of currency you need from your bank and they can send it to you in the mail. You should also bring American bills, just in case, and exchange them for local currency if you need to.

3. Set Up Your Phone

While preparing for international travel, you should call your phone provider and activate your phone's global capabilities so that you can use it abroad more easily.

As you take pictures and use your phone's GPS, the battery will drain fairly quickly, so bring a mobile charger with you too.

4. Get Vaccines and Stock Up on Medication

You should check to make sure that you have the vaccinations that are necessary for the place you're visiting. For example, depending on where you're staying in Ecuador, you may need to get a vaccine for Malaria and Yellow Fever. If you plan on going to Ethiopia, you should get a polio vaccine.

You will always want to make sure you have an appropriate amount of any medications or vitamin supplements you take.

5. Do Some Research

When wondering how to prepare for international travel, you should definitely consider researching the country you're visiting. A little research can go a long way when learning about how to be respectful of the local culture.

It will also help you to know what to expect and lessen any potential culture shock.

When you're done researching the country, you can begin booking hotel accommodations easily.
