Last Minute Tips

Travel 101 |

I am heading off to the Viceroy Resort in Riviera Maya tomorrow and am really looking forward to my stay!  Things have been extra busy around here, so I have been counting down the days to relaxing on the beach with great friends!

Prior to any trip, I have a bit of a checklist that I go through that I wanted to share.

-Check your flight times on the airline’s website.  Airlines frequently make schedule changes, oftentimes last minute changes.  Check again right before you leave for the airport in case of any flight delays.  Most airlines have apps you can download on your phone to make this easy!

-If you are arriving to your hotel well before check in, bring anything you might want if you can’t check into your room right away.  This way you can relax on the beach or squeeze in a spa appointment, and won’t have to dig through your suitcase to find what you need.

-Check the weather where you are traveling, especially what the weather will be when you arrive.  You don’t want to show up in sandals to find pouring rain, or be wearing a sweater to find 100 degree temperatures!

-If you are traveling for your honeymoon, make sure to bring a copy of your marriage certificate with you.  Some hotels will ask for some kind of proof in order to provide complimentary honeymoon amenities.

-Call your credit card companies to let them know where you will be.  This way they won’t put a hold on your credit card for suspiscious charges.  Also call your bank if you plan to use your debit card.

-Send family members a link to your hotel or copy of your itinerary so they can get in touch with you if needed

-Make sure you have all travel confirmations with you

-Last but most important, make sure you have your passport if needed!  Even if you forget everything else, this is the one thing you just can’t forget!

Do you have any other tips to share?

Bon Voyage!
