Traveler’s Checklist

Traveler’s Checklist

As well as the packing list and toothbrush here are some helpful reminders of things you should make sure you don’t overlook:

  • tell family and friends where you’re going and leave them your contact details, insurance policy details and itinerary. Store them securely online
  • ensure you have access to funds to cover emergencies and unexpected delays. Take more than one means of payment with you (cash, debit card, credit card)
  • find out if travellers cheques are appropriate for your destination and keep a separate record of their numbers
  • invest in a good travel guide to help you plan your trip and consider using online travel forums for more detail about your destination
  • check with your service provider to make sure your phone works abroad. Consider leaving your phone’s IMEI number with a friend or family member, to help block or locate the phone if there’s a problem
  • if you’re going to be driving abroad, make sure your licence is current and valid and be aware of the driving laws in the country you are visiting
  • if you’re travelling with children who are unaccompanied by one or both parents, check our guidance on permissions that you might need to get and check the policy of your airline or transport provider
