Traveling to other countries and meeting other cultures is exciting.
And if you are a first-time sailor and go abroad for the first ever, stay tuned to our tips below to make the most of your trip:
-Choose the most convenient way to take money, a prepaid credit or debit card is a great option;
-We know it will not go wrong on your trip, but it is always good to leave your itinerary with some family member or friend who will stay in your country. Try to give news whenever possible to avoid unnecessary worries;
-Inquire about the transport system of the place you will visit. In cities like new York, for example, the subway is an efficient transport and can save you from spending money on taxis and wasting time in transit;
-Sometimes it is cheaper to buy tickets for museums, tours or shows on the Internet;
-The passport is the most important document of your trip. So, ideally, keep it in a safe place (in a lockable bag or in the vault) and walk with a color Xerox and more your identity card or driver's license;
-Learn a few basic words in the local language. Knowing how to ask where is the bathroom or where is a certain street is indispensable;
-Respect the laws! What is acceptable in your country may yield you a penalty in another;
-Remember to write down the name and address of the hotel and always take with you. If you forget how to get back, you can ask someone or take a taxi;
-Leave a saved money for emergencies. Did you spend a lot on shopping? Did you have to pay unexpected fees? This little money can make all the difference in these hours;
-Giving or not tipping varies for each country, so please inform yourself before not to offend any employee.
