Extra Credit Cards

Though we like to think nothing bad will happen on big trips, it is important to prepare for the worst. If you happen to lose the one credit card you brought, you may be in for a huge headache.

Local Cash

Often times it is easier to exchange your local currency for the currency of the destination you are headed to at your local bank. To avoid having to do it at the airport, do it ahead of time.

Appropriate Clothing

Do your research on what the weather is going to be like and pack accordingly to avoid having to buy an entirely new wardrobe while there.

Reliable Luggage

The last thing you want is to be moving from one place to the next and in the middle of all the hustle and bustle, your suitcase or backpack breaks. Invest in good and sturdy luggage!
