CAIRO – 24 September 2017: If you are planning a trip for leisure, here are the eight most important guidelines to help you make the most out of your vacation.

1- Remember your travel insurance

While planning one’s travels, no one thinks of injured or robbed. Yet emergencies happen all the time. Taking your travel insurance, you will not worry about huge hospital bills or stolen stuff if, god forbids, they happen.


2- Stay hydrated

Hydration during long flights will help you get over jet lag.

3- Write down your hotel address

It is commonplace among travelers to forget their hotel address, which is especially tricky in a country where you might not speak the local language. So write the address down in your phone, or take a card from the reception to help you return easily.


4- Tell someone at home about your trip plans

This tip is especially important for solo-travelers. Although even if you are travelling in a group, it is best to do so.

5- Start your day early

Even if you are a night owl, it’s important to rise early when you’re on vacation. This will help you avert crowds while visiting the best attractions. Photographers would also appreciate taking stunning photographs in natural light.


6- Do not over-plan your trip

Get lost on purpose, and leave enough room for spontaneity. There is no need to be super afraid and cautious. This will give you the best memories when you come back.

7- Go where locals go

“The traveler sees what he sees. The tourist sees what he has come to see,” G.K. Chesterton
Socialize with the locals. Observe daily life in the country you are visiting. This will be very inspiring and eye-opening.

8- Use convenient travel apps

Technology is facilitating traveling to everyone.

Here is a list of five applications that you will find helpful.
