Travel Abroad Essentials

There’s nothing quite like jumping on a plane and setting off to explore new places! Here’s how to make sure you’re prepared for the adventure of a lifetime.

Ready Your Travel Docs

  • Passport
  • Driver’s License
  • Travel Visas
  • Hotel, train and flight information
  • Trip Itineraries
  • Credit Cards – use a scanner to make those copies, front and back!

Think Ahead

Relax more while traveling abroad by checking these to-dos off your list.

  • Call your bank – let them know your travel dates

  • Study up on local laws
  • Purchase travel insurance 

Be a Savvy Packer

Make space in your suitcase for these often overlooked essentials.

  • Money in the correct currency
  • Prescription medications
  • A compact first-aid kit
  • Snacks (no need to get hangry!)
  • Electronics, chargers and adaptors for certain countries
  • Umbrella
