Checklist for A Smooth Get-Away Trip

Posted by & filed under .

Whether you’re going in or out of Singapore, you surely have to plan your get-away well and make sure that your trip runs smoothly. Here, then, are some things you need to take note of so that you’ll hardly face any inconvenience along the way.

Finish the papers early

Before the day of your trip or even before you buy tickets for a flight, make sure that you have your passports, visas, and all other important documents ready. Most of the time, you’ll encounter problems when process papers and applications. That is why it is best to deal with them as early as possible. If you’re going to a visa-free country, great, fewer papers to process! It is important to know, though, that some countries require you to travel within only 3 months after applying so make sure you don’t apply too early.

Do Your Research

Researching about the country you are going to visit is basically a no-brainer, but a lot of people forget to do it! If you’re going to a country with a language you cannot speak, at least learn some basic greetings. You should also look into etiquette and things you should and should not do in that country. This will help you avoid any conflicts and might even help you look more like a local (which can make you less likely to be the target of scammers).

Don’t overpack

When packing for a trip, it is easy for us to not think about what we’re putting on the suitcase, especially if we’re doing it in a hurry. Obviously, you would want to make sure you pack your essentials like toiletries, underwear, chargers and whatever else your essentials are. When it comes to clothing, that’s when we usually overpack. One thing you can think about is to avoid exceeding the airline baggage limit. That way you’ll only pick the right amount of clothing and you can also save money. So think about what you’re packing well and do it early!

Set a budget and try your best to stick to it

For one thing, you don’t want to cut your trip short because you don’t have any money left. It is very easy to give in to the temptation of buying a lot of souvenirs or trying out all the food you see, but you should try your best to stick to your budget. This way, you try out a lot more things while keeping your wallet in check. Doing your research can also help you set your budget right. You should be able to find on the internet the prices of food, tourist sports, and the average cost of living in the country you’re visiting.
