1. Have a PLAN
Before you go on a holiday make sure to ask yourself these questions, where are you going , with whom are you going, how many of you are going , how you are travelling , where are you going to stay, how many days you going , what are you going to do on holiday. If you get a clear answers of these questions then it is sure that you have made a good holiday plan. If not, you may be going on an adventure holiday !!
2. Have confirm tickets for travelling
Now that you have a plan please check whether you have got confirm tickets of Train,bus or Air for all the members travelling. This is most important because during holiday seasons there is always a huge rush and waiting tickets generally dont get confirm till the last day. Make sure that you have confirm tickets in your hands at least a week before your travel
3. Travel comfotably
If you are travelling by your own vehicle or private vehicle make sure that it accommodates all of you travelling comfortably along with the luggage you are carrying. We have seen people travelling in crumpled conditions even in their own vehicle , this make the journey very uncomfortable for some and may suck all energy or enthusism out of you. Travelling is a fun keep it the same way with comfort and enjoy your ride.
4. Carry Tool Kit in Vehicle
If travelling by your own vehicle ensure that your vehicle is upto the mark for such travel. Do not think that your city car will be climbing the himalaya comfortably. Before venturing out get the vehicle serviced and inspected by a mechanic couple of days before if necessary. Always keep a spare wheel with you, rectify the flat tyre at the very next place without thinking that you have just changed the tyre after this one got flat. Ensure that full Tool Kit is there in your vehicle.
5. Confirm Hotel Booking in Advance
6. Travel Packing
Hand baggage – when doing your packing always have a separate handbag with you, may be couple of handbags for a family. This should contain all the things you may need any time like I-Cards, tickets , camera , torch , books , towels, sunglasses, travel chargers, mobiles, camera cells, first Aid kit with common medicines,cosmetics, some currency and some snacks.
Main baggage – the rest of the things should be placed in the main baggage like cloths as per the destinations need like t-shirts,paints, woolens,nightwear, jackets, swim-suits, raincoat, shoes, shocks etc for all the members including childrens or baby. For hill stations always keep a pair of woolen with you even in summer as you never know the nights could become very cold and uncomfortable for kids.
