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!
