Help For Your Travels!

At Greenwood Travel we believe the informed traveler is much less likely to have as many hassles during their vacation or business trip. Here we offer a handful of tools to assist you in planning and executing the smooth business trip or dream vacation!

 

Stay In Contact

You've packed your luggage and planned your flight itinerary. However, because air travel is constantly changing it is important to consider the elements of travel that don't necessarily mean more items placed in a suitcase, or charged to a credit card. Travel tips that cover how to stay in contact, and protect yourself in airports, etc. are considerations that don't immediately make it into a travel schedule.

The following is a list of concerns that you may wish to address when planning your next trip.

  • Confirm flight times and dates for all portions of your trip to make sure that they match up with your information.
  • Make copies of your air travel itinerary and leave a copy with your workplace and family members or friends.
  • Provide your travel agent or airline with phone numbers or email addresses where you can be reached during your travels in addition to giving this information to your workplace and family or friends. Also include hotel addresses and contact numbers.

Preventing Theft

Theft is always a concern at airports, but also on flights. A few tips to make sure that your belongings aren't compromised:

- Constantly be aware of your surroundings. Theft is common at airports and even on board flights.

- Be aware that unwanted and/or illegal items may be placed in unattended luggage.

Pack Your Suitcase the Right Way

Traveling Internationally

There are additional considerations when embarking on international travel including:

  • Make sure that your passport is valid for at least six months beyond your return dates of travel. Some countries require that your passport be valid for at least six months or you may be refused entry.
  • When traveling internationally make sure that you have any visas that may be required. Verify if there are business or tourist visas and which one best suits the purpose of your travel.
  • Do make photocopies of your passport, visas and any other pertinent travel documents. Pack copies in your luggage as well as leaving copies with your workplace, family and/or friends.
  • Bring a copy of your medical history with you. This could simply involve listing any medical conditions, blood type, etc. If you are allergic to any medications, include this information. When traveling internationally try to have these items listed in the local language (if possible).
  • If you are traveling internationally try to have key phrases written in the local language such as "help", or "I need to see a doctor/the police".
