Travel Security - Just Think Ahead!

In this article I will discuss security when traveling outside the United States. Being aware of your surroundings is going to be the number one thing that you can do to protect yourself. Here are some suggestions that can help you stay secure and safe. Consider your passport, hotel, how you dress, money, jewelry and cell phone.
Your passport should have at least 6 months before it expires and it should have enough blank pages to handle the customs stamps for the countries you intend to visit. You should check the countries web sites to see if you will need a visa, if so, be sure to apply early. There are many webs sites that can do this for you. If you are traveling by cruise ship they will have visa and passport services. Before you leave, make at least three color copies of your passport and leave one at home, when arriving at your hotel or cruise ship lock your original passport in the safe. Carry a color passport with you. Always protect your original passport and keep it locked up as much as practical.

How to Enjoy a Holiday Abroad the Right Way

We all dream of taking a villa break abroad to relax on a beach and allow the stresses of work just ebb away. The problem is that so many people find themselves disappointed after waiting months for their much longed for holiday. Don't let yourself fall into this trap - make sure to plan ahead and make your holiday truly memorable with these little tips.
Leave work behind
One of the worst mistakes you can make while on holiday is to bring your work with you. Cell phones, laptops and tablets can ruin many a villa break with urgent alerts from the office. This is why, unless they are absolutely necessary, you should bite the bullet and leave all your gadgets behind, or at the least turn them off. If you are worried about getting drowned with work when you come back, do what you can ahead of time and delegate the tasks to others in the office.

4 Ways Educational Trips Awaken the Senses

School excursions can be a fountain of knowledge. Students are expected to not only enjoy themselves, but also drink from this fountain and absorb skills that can be assessed according to the standards of the curricula.
But knowledge is not simply the entry of data into the brain. It also includes the sensory absorption. This creates pedagogical experiences and builds the student's ability to connect with the world around them.
Sounds of South Africa
Some destinations seem to strike certain senses more than others. On educational trips to South Africa, students will no doubt listen to words of wisdom, but in particular their ears will be piqued to absorb the cultural and natural sounds humming around them. South Africa is famous for safaris, and the sounds of a safari are unlike any others. The roar of the lion, the bellow of the elephant, the howl of the hyena, the song of the wind sweeping across the plains - students' ears will drink in this sensory information and it will shape their understanding of these unique ecosystems.

Making a Travel Insurance Claim - Questions to Ask Yourself

Many single trip travel insurance providers walk the extra mile just to give their clients a hassle-free experience as far as making a claim is concerned - in fact, most claims are dealt with quickly and efficiently. However, as the client, you also have certain responsibilities to make sure you do have the right to make a claim and your situation is actually included in the terms and conditions stated in your policy. The following are just some of the important questions you should be asking yourself.
Define 'Close Relative'
It is common in many single trip travel insurance policies to provide cover in case you have to cancel your trip or you have to cut it short because a close relative has taken ill or has died. But there's the rub: 'close relative' may not include that beloved aunt or uncle simply because they are removed from you by a few degrees, regardless of how emotionally close you feel you are to them. That's why you should carefully check the terms of the insurer concerning what it considers among your 'close relatives'. Moreover, you may also have to declare any pre-existing medical condition that any of your close relatives have.

Top Tips for Safer Hikes and Long Walks

Walks in New Zealand can be a great way to enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the islands - and an especially attractive treat for the 'outdoorsy' tourist visiting for the first time. Safety must always come first, however, especially for long walks and hikes. While travelling with a group and experienced guide is your best bet to explore the Land of the Long White Cloud, it still pays to be prepared in case of any eventuality. These tips will help you out without hampering your experience:
Create an equipment and food checklist
The very first thing you may want to do to prepare for your hikes or walks in New Zealand, is to write up a checklist. This checklist will vary depending on the duration of your planned walks and whether you will be camping or lodging. Whatever your plans are, check with your tour leader or guide to make sure you have basics like maps, water, high-energy bars, first aid kits, raincoats, emergency blankets and waterproof matches. You may want to bring a satellite phone as well if you plan to trek deeper into the heart of the mountains and rainforests.
Take note of prominent landmarks
Many walks in New Zealand have directions along common paths, but it is still important for you to keep an eye out for major landmarks along the way - even while travelling with a guide. Mountains, rock formations, unique trees and other natural or geological features will be of immense help. Yes, you may have maps or GPS navigators but taking note of local landmarks will help reorient you should these tools fail you when you need them the most. This is especially important to remember when hiking through thick foliage.

5 Reasons Why Study Abroad Brings Growth for a Lifetime

It takes a leap of faith to move to another country. The new country, though full of exquisite newness and exotic experiences, will always find you a stranger in its midst. You bring your own particular expectations and neuroses, and these can jar with the new world around you no matter how flexible you try to be. If you're young and inexperienced, this can be magnified. So why do students keep taking this brave leap? Because when, in the end, they land on their feet and return home, they have invariably flourished in a way they had never thought possible.
Deep friendships
Some people seek out good friends others have good friends thrust upon them. When you choose to study abroad, you will be at a stage in your life when most people around you have already solidified their close circle of friends, from school or from their youth. It can be hard, in your spare time, to find people truly open to making a new and deep connection. But the expatriate life puts you in a pool of strangers looking for support and locals looking to help out, and this relational cocktail is often an ideal brew to forge new, adult and lifelong friendships.

How to Know a Good Single Trip Travel Insurance Policy

Not all single trip travel insurance policies offer the same features; while some are outright, honest and transparent, there are those that hide the real state of things - and how much coverage they actually provide - by fudging the wording in the fine print or performing the insurance policy version of a magician's 'sleight of hand' and clever misdirection. To help you easily determine if you're getting a good policy, here are some areas you must examine.
Medical Expenses
There is probably no single trip travel insurance that does not offer medical coverage, such as providing financial assistance if you encounter a medical emergency during your travels. The difference, however, lies in the extent of the coverage - how much the insurer is willing to provide and how clear are its terms in providing it. For starters, a good policy should provide cover for emergency medical or surgical treatment while you're abroad, and given the current inflation rate, the amount of cover should be no less than £1 million if you're travelling throughout Europe, and no less than £2 million if you're visiting the USA. Of course, this should include cover for getting you back home for the same medical reasons. It is important to note, however, any medical treatment that is not urgent or an emergency (meaning it can be performed when you're back in your home country) is not usually included in the cover.

Accommodation Is the Main Part of Your Vacation

We all spend days and nights working continuously without even a moments rest. Therefore, when it comes to a holiday we're going to want to make sure that we live each moment and enjoy it to the fullest.
There are plenty of different packages that you would come across and therefore it's really easy to get lost in the ocean of cool deals. Even though this is a good thing, you would spend your time looking at various packages and hence not go into detail about any of them, thereby ending up in having a holiday that's not up to par with your expectations.
Accommodation is the main factor to consider
You would not be able to have a joyful vacation if you don't have a good place to stay. So before looking out for things that you would be able to do in the place you must look out for accommodation.

Delve Into History on School Trips To Dublin

There are many things students can learn from visiting historic locations, including skills that are vital not just for the study of history but for learning in general: looking beyond the surface, analytical thinking, and putting knowledge into context. An educational framework can make any trip immensely valuable for students, while their classmates make the perfect companions to travel with. School outings provide all this and more, no matter where you go, but one of the most rewarding destinations for history is Dublin. Here are three of the city's top attractions.
Dublin's past is full of dramatic changes, and there is no better way to start exploring these changes than by investigating one of the oldest periods of the city's life: Viking Dublin. No matter the age range or historical knowledge of the students you travel with, school visits to Dublin can be enhanced with a trip to Dublinia, the interactive museum that presents the city's past lives in a vivid series of exhibitions that are certain to prove memorable. Visitors can ride on a replica Viking long ship, walk the reconstructed streets of the old city, or put their investigative skills to the test with the museum's own archaeological lab.

Airport Shuttle Service or Taxi?

Since the inception of air travel, there have always been two main choices of ground transportation when travelers flew for business or pleasure. They could either take a taxi cab to their location of choice, or if they were on a tighter budget they could use the local public transportation system. It is the same in practically every country of the world. The taxi of course has taken precedence with most travelers because it is less complicated to take, requires less effort, and is quicker without the wait at the dozen stops and transfers along the way to reach a desired local address. So when a newer service in the ground transportation industry, like the airport shuttle service comes on the scene, it is often hard to fit it into what we already know.
The perception of a shuttle service is a connection in a convention center, or a hotel courtesy ride to the airport, but the industry has changed a lot in recent decades. The most recent evolution in airport shuttle service is a scheduled service in a privately owned 12 passenger van, that runs out of airports every hour or so, providing a connection to most local destinations of choice, either direct, or with very few, quick stops that do not require walking. In essence, the airport shuttle service captures the core need filled by a taxi service, providing reliable transportation to and from the airport, being simple, easy, and quick. But there are significant differences when we look at them both side by side.
Taxis are on a first come, first serve basis. Curbside taxis at the airport are usually organized and a line of passengers is formed to secure a cab. It can be very quick if there are few people, but can take a long time if there is a local event like a convention, boat show, or major concert or NBA, NHL, MLB, or NFL game. When there are great numbers of travelers flying in and requiring taxis to get around for meals and entertainment, the line of people to get a taxi at the airport is longer, and the line of taxis in cue to pick them up is shorter, so the wait could be several hours, and is somewhat unpredictable. The airport shuttle service on the other hand, requires a reservation, and is a scheduled pick up for a party with an exact amount of passengers. People requiring transportation in a hectic airport who do not have a reservation, are usually not allowed to get into a shuttle. On the flip side, when flying through an empty airport, people can find taxis available immediately as they exit baggage claim, and can find themselves waiting for another 20 minutes for their scheduled shuttle service.
The taxi service is private, where the airport shuttle service is shared. 'Private' is an industry standard term referring to the fact that there are no other passenger parties in the vehicle. The shared shuttle service is not private because a party of 3 can take up 3 seats and another two or three parties can take up the other 9 seats of the shuttle. Shuttles usually transport 2 or 3 passenger parties, and are often taking them to the same destination. Depending on personal preference, this could be a drawback for those who rather keep to themselves, or it could be an opportunity for mingling with others who have a commonality with them, whether they are in town for a vacation hotel stay, a cruise ship embarkation, or a trade show.

Picking Accommodation for Your Vacation

Are you planning a vacation? If yes, you first need to decide if you want action and adventure or just some relaxation to get over all the stress at work. No matter what kind of vacation you're looking for, you're going to need to find a place to visit and more importantly accommodation.
There are plenty of things that you could do such as just going around enjoying the delicious cuisine of the place, trekking, wine tasting, wild life viewing and for some of you, the best part would be shopping. However, to enjoy any of this you're going to need to plan your accommodation first.
Finding the best accommodation isn't something that you would be able to do in a day. You first need to decide where you want to stay. Is it going to be a sort of jungle resort, by the lake or maybe the sea? Of course there are a few who would also want to live in a city so as to enjoy the cities night life.
Here's what you could pick from
There are plenty of alternatives for you to choose from, therefore don't keep your options limited, and take a look at some of the possibilities:

Basic Coverage Must-Haves of Single Trip Travel Insurance Plans

Single trip travel insurance is an economical choice for those who don't travel regularly but still want to stay protected on those rare occasions where they do need to travel. The problem, however, is that not all these plans are the same. What's the use of getting a policy if it won't cover you when you really need it to?
So without further ado, here are the four essential fields your single trip travel insurance plan must cover:
Medical Cover
Medical coverage is the most important type you need to secure. Even if your existing health plans include international coverage, it is still worth your time to look into travel plans for their primary care coverage. Such plans cover your medical expenses up to a certain point, which can be extremely useful when you find yourself visiting a local clinic for an allergic reaction or for a minor injury. This will help reduce your out of pocket expenses if they are below your deductible limit. If you're in need of some serious help while travelling, the hospital you find yourself in will usually work with your provider - saving you the trouble of having to pay things off yourself.

Plan Your Trip to the Airport Carefully

Many people think that the hardest part of traveling is finding the best deals. While this may be a challenge to some, you have to realize that finding the best deals requires an investment of time. What so many people tend to forget about is what they need to do once they arrive at the airport. While you may think that all you need to do is arrive at least fifteen minutes before your flight, you should allow yourself more time than that. You need to provide yourself with ample time to get through all of the security checks and account for any potential issues you may encounter while waiting to board your flight.
Let's face it, no one likes the idea of having to hang around the airport. But with all of the changes to the security and screening process you can't avoid it. There are however, things you can do to make it easier and more enjoyable for you to arrive early. Double check what you pack. Many people tend to wait until the last minute and just toss what they need into their luggage. When they arrive and have to go through security, they get flagged because they unknowingly packed something that isn't allowed. Make sure you pay attention to what you pack and do it early. If you don't know what items you can and cannot bring, call ahead and talk with the airport staff to can find out. The last thing you want to happen is to be detained and potentially miss your flight because you weren't paying attention to what you packed.

Why Travel Insurance Claims Are Rejected

The single trip travel insurance specialists are used to dealing with a wide variety of claims. They understand there is a need to provide the required level of financial assistance to individuals who have fallen ill or sustained injuries during their holidays. However, the insurers are also prepared to reject claims for the reasons outlined in this article.
Family Illness Or Death
It is quite understandable that people would want to stay at home because of the illness or death of a family member. However, they may not be able to make a claim against the cost of the missed holiday. This is because knowledge of potential health problems must be declared when applying for different policies.
Loss or Stolen Possessions
A number of insurers specify the need to report instances of loss or theft of valuable items to the legal authorities within 24 hours. They may refuse to cover the cost of possessions if travellers do not adhere to this rule. Single trip travel insurance claims have also been rejected because policyholders didn't take care over the security of their goods.

The Undeniable Importance of Travel Insurance

People spend great amounts of time planning their holidays each year. They carefully consider the deals offered by airlines and hotels and make myriad decisions regarding the activities and group outings that may be enjoyed. However, many of these travellers forget the importance of comprehensive single trip travel insurance. They choose the cheapest deal or completely forego the selection of suitable cover in the hope that everything will be OK. Of course there are more sensible travellers who invest in appropriate cover for the reasons highlighted in this article.
Travellers Are Always at Some Risk
There is a seemingly endless list of problems that can occur during the course of a holiday. Your flights might be delayed; you could develop a nasty illness; there is even a possibility of losing valuable possessions. Those who've invested in single trip travel insurance can be assured of financial protection; however, if you've taken the risk of travelling without cover you might end up having to pay a considerable amount.

Why Should You Get a Holiday Cover Insurance Package?

Many people seek holiday cover insurance packages when travelling abroad, but what are these packages in the first place and why should they matter to you?
Defining Travel Insurance Packages
Travel insurance packages - more commonly known as holiday cover - are designed to protect you from a wide variety of problems you or your family may encounter while travelling. Some of the more common areas covered by these packages include medical aid, loss of baggage, theft of valuables, trip cancelation and even evacuation in cases of extreme emergency. We'll discuss these in greater detail below.
Evacuation During Emergencies
A serious illness or accident can be life-threatening if you do not have the means to seek appropriate medical attention ASAP. Military engagements or terrorist attacks can also be life-threatening if you find yourself stuck smack-dab in the middle of it all. These situations justify the need for aerial or naval evacuation contingencies and should definitely be worth considering if you plan to visit the more remote regions of the world.
Expanded Medical Insurance
The benefits of overseas medical insurance are obvious when your plan does not include international coverage. But what about the more comprehensive and all-encompassing insurance plans that provide international coverage? Holiday cover can still be of help if your deductibles are set quite high in your original package. The same can also be true if you seek to purchase primary coverage that will pay for your medical expenses until a predetermined limit is reached.

Choosing The Right Holiday Cover

If you're reading up about choosing the right kind of holiday cover for your trip, congratulations! You're way ahead of those people who haven't even considered it as an integral part of their travel plans.

The truth is, even the most easy-going, go-with-the-flow kind of trip could be made better with a little planning. After all, the only kind of free-style trip that usually works is the one that's planned for you! If you're going to do only one thing, the essential step you should take is to purchase insurance for your holiday. Cover any eventuality with the different kinds of plans available - from short-term, low-cost ones, to those that may run a little more expensive but are definitely more comprehensive.

Here are a few things you need to ask yourself in order to ensure that you choose the correct travel insurance plan.

What's In Your Regular Insurance Policy?
Many people forgo travel insurance thinking that their existing health cover includes illness and accidents abroad, then find out too late it doesn't - and definitely does not provide any allowance for medical evacuation. On the other hand, there are also people who buy insurance that turns out to be redundant. For example, many homeowners' policies include property and liability coverage, even for travelling, while many credit card companies offer medical assistance and baggage loss insurance if you charge your airfare to your card. What's more, some health insurance policies include overseas medical emergencies.

Insuring Your Holiday Against Any Eventuality

If you decide insuring your holiday trip is an unnecessary expense, you may be in for a surprise if anything untoward happens - and most likely an unpleasant one!

Of course, everyone plans a holiday looking forward to a good time. Some plan for each and every step of their itinerary: what to wear, what to see, what to do, purchasing advanced tickets for plays and shows, making reservations and more, but may choose to ignore the unthinkable possibilities that could occur. But insuring your holiday trip is the icing on the cake that shouldn't be ignored.

Here are some of those possibilities - knock on wood, they don't happen, but be prepared in case they do.
Insuring Against Cancellations

Imagine this: it's the day before your trip and your children come down with the flu or meet with an accident. If you're like many bargain travellers who take advantage of lower rates and special sales (or just happen to book an non-refundable trip), a cancellation can mean the bulk of your budget down the drain. Insuring your holiday trip can ensure you get back the bulk of your expenses (such as airfare) paid out. There are even some policies that will enable you to cover your trip against cancellation due to other reasons like floods, fires, earthquakes at home, unforeseen bankruptcy of your travel supplier, and more. It may even cover you in case you can't make the trip back home because of disasters and catastrophes to your home destination.

Top Tips for Travelling With Children

No one ever said that travelling with children was easy (well, not anyone who has actually done it), and there are endless things to worry about while on a family holiday. However, taking care of a few things before you head out on your adventures can help minimize your work and hassle while abroad on your family holiday. Travel insurance, child friendly transport and appropriate accommodation can all be researched and booked before you go.

This article offers a checklist of things to do before travelling abroad with your family.

1. Book Family Holiday Travel Insurance
Family holiday travel insurance package deals cover medical and property loss abroad and normally offers discounts over individual rates. These plans are usually quick and easy to purchase, and many can be researched and booked online.

2. See your family doctor
When travelling with your family outside of Europe, there might some vaccinations that you or your children will need to get before you go. In some cases, these vaccinations are necessary before you can even apply for a visa. You'll also want to refill any prescription medications that you or your family need so you have enough to last the whole trip.

3. Get family friendly transport
If you're thinking about hiring a car, reserve one large for your whole family and request whatever infant car seats, child booster seats, or other kid extras you might need ahead of time. Sometimes access to these things are limited, and having them reserved ahead of time will make it easier when you arrive.

6 Things to Do Before Travelling Abroad

Getting everything done before heading off on a holiday can be difficult, but making sure your pre-travel list is completed will give you great peace of mind while on every single trip. Travel insurance, vaccinations, visas, and scanning documents can pile up on your 'to-do' post it notes, but all the little tasks done can really save you a lot of trouble while out on your adventures. This is especially true if you're travelling outside of Europe or to places with special visa requirements.

This article has a six-item to-do list already set up for you to tick off. From booking your single trip travel insurance to checking your debit cards, you'll find some helpful suggestions of things to get done before you get on the plane.

1. See your doctor
If you're travelling outside of Europe, you might need to get vaccinations before you go, and in some cases, before you can even apply for a visa. It's also not a bad idea to refill any prescription medication to last you through the duration of your travels.

2. Learn as much about your destination as possible
If you're travelling to a place you know very little about, it's a really good idea to read about the local customs and history before you leave. This will give context to many of the sites you're seeing, and will provide insight into appropriate behaviours and attire.

What to Look Out for When Eating Out While on Vacation

Traveling to somewhere you've never been is a hard enough challenge to overcome. Chances are you're coming in to contact with new languages, new cultures, new people, and new foods. Most of these things you can deal with and return unscathed. But if you aren't careful, eating out while on vacation isn't one of them. If you don't know the language, customs, or food of the place you've chosen to take a trip, eating out could end in disaster.

One of the most important thing you need to look out for while eating out on vacation is whether or not you're in a location where drinking the local water is safe. Of all places to travel, Mexico is the most well known for having unsafe drinking water. Most developed countries are safe, but it's best to check the Center for Disease Control's website to see which areas are truly okay and which are not. Even if you are somewhere that the water is fine to drink, but you don't want to take any chances, you can drink bottled water and cold, bottled soft drinks and other drinks. If you're worried about contamination, make sure you don't drink fountain drinks or ask for ice. These are both ways for water to enter into your drinks without you completely realizing it.

Know the Rules When You Go to Different Airports

The next time you decide to go traveling, make sure you know what procedures and regulations you need to abide by. If you have multiple layovers in different airports, it is helpful to know that most policies are standard and do not differ from airport to airport. In addition to knowing the rules and regulations, you should also practice safety regardless of how safe you feel. These places can be extremely crowded and you will be surrounded by tons of people.

Double-check your luggage as a precaution before entering the airport. Body and carry-on inspections hold people up the most during air travel. You don't want to end up late or missing your flight because you simply forgot to leave a restricted item at home or in your car. It's easy to forget that the most simple, everyday items can significantly slow you down when moving through the safety check. For instance, certain sized liquid containers are not allowed, your hand lotion or forgotten water bottle can cost you and other passengers ten, fifteen, and or twenty minutes.

Traveling is an enjoyable affair, especially if done for leisure. This is why several people choose to travel when they get the time off their works or schools-and, of course, when they have extra money to spend on something that is not actually unnecessary. With the availability of all inclusive travel deals that many companies offer these days, the client bases have really expanded because more people get to avail of the packages. Aside from that, all inclusive travel deals have so many benefits to offer that just add to their popularity among travellers.
One of the common benefits that all inclusive travel deals provide is that you can experience an easy and convenient trip. Actually, it comes with the very term "all inclusive". Meaning, the travel package that you will avail of already takes care of everything you might need for your trip. You get the best flight schedule with a very convenient carrier. Then, when you get to your destination, you already have a place to stay in as well as meals to take in the duration of your trip. Plus, you have your itinerary laid out for you.
If this is the case for a leisure travel, then you have signed up for a really great deal. What you will get is really a worry- and hassle-free trip where you only relax and enjoy the places you go to. On the other hand, if the package you get is for a business trip, it would mean more productivity on your part. This is because you no longer will have to worry about where you will stay or eat or ride. You will have the convenience of focusing on the job you have travelled for.
Another benefit of all inclusive travel deals is that you can save up on the usual travel expenses. What you have to know is that travel companies or agencies all have tie-ups with third-party service providers. They know where they can get you great hotel deals, with complete meal packages. They also have connections that will provide you with convenient transportation services as you go from one place to another. In better deals, they can even have a local tour guide come with you to assist you in everything you do around the place.
