Travel Tips

1.  To avoid penalty, fee, or service charge, do not purchase tickets, tours, or other services unless you will definitely travel. Yet, to secure the reservation (s), either deposit or full payment is required.

2.   When you buy an international ticket or tour, check whether you are in possession of a passport that will be valid for at least 6-months from the date of your return to your country of origin.  Also, check whether you have a valid visa (s) if it is required.

3.  Before leaving home, (1) stop newspaper & mail deliveries, (2) arrange for dogs & other pets to be fed and for plants to be watered, (3) pay all bills particularly those with penalty/interest, (4) make sure windows/doors are closed & locked, and (5) it is suggested that a few lamps be connected to a timer so that you appear to be home at night.

4.  Before starting your trip, check weather in cities you visit & review your insurance policies to determine whether treatment occurring while traveling is covered. Bring your insurance policies with you.

5.  The voltage in the U.S.A. is 110 volts. If you travel to a country with 220 volts, bring an adaptor.

6.   Leave extra credit card(s), key(s), & expensive jewelry at home. Do not put daily use medicine(s), cash, travelers cheques, passport, airline ticket, other travel documents, and valuables in your check-in baggage. 

7.   If you take expensive cameras, jewelry, new items and other valuables to foreign country, register them with customs at the international customs office before leaving in order to eliminate an argument at the time of your return.

8.  Each adult holding economy class ticket may check in a piece of baggage with a maximum weight of 50 lbs for flights that cross either the Pacific Ocean or Atlantic Ocean and there is a $25 (or more) fee for checking a second bag. (Some airlines have not changed from two pieces to one piece.) There is a 40-44 lb baggage restriction each adult on inter-Asia, inter-Europe, or travel other than mentioned above. Please call airlines directly for accuracy as details may change.

9.  If you find any damage on your check-in baggage made by airlines, hotel or bus and want to claim it, claim it immediately.

10.  Before entering a country, you are requested to complete a customs clearance form. Before completing it, read it. Normally, fruits, vegetable, plants, plant products, soil, meats, meat products, and other live animals or animal products are restricted from being taken into another country without a permit approved in advance.

11.   Reconfirm and leave your phone number with airlines before starting your trip and at each stopover city.
