It is really very nice feeling to travel abroad. Everyone dream about this to get an opportunity of travelling to another country and explore new things. It has now become so popular trend to go overseas for the vacations but if you are travelling at the very first time to abroad then you should be very careful about so many things especially when you travelling to Europe. By especially mentioning Europe, doesn’t mean anything negative but a piece of advice for not taking anyone’s cultural values too lightly and enjoy your time to the most. Here are a few things mentioned below to be conscious about while travelling to another country.
A Valid Passport: Nearly every European country gives the facility of extension of visa after landing to their country but for that, the tourist must have a valid passport of his country and that should be valid for at least next six months. You can also apply for online visa provision given by a few countries. Whenever you land to another country, make sure you keep your passport with you all the time wherever you are travelling.
Consciousness about the Country’s culture: When you are in another country, it is very important that you respect their culture and religious values and do not boast about your own. European countries may not be very broad from the mind and culture or it can be said that there can be a few religious places where they may not allow the people to go inside with certain costumes, therefore, be aware of the local culture, conditions and terms before landing in a European country. While packing, keep a few clothes which complement to their cultural values.
Carry Cash: There are many countries where currency rates would be different at every other spot of theirs, therefore its better to keep cash with you in case you get very less amount of money at a particular place. Few local people at much-travelled places run it as like a business and charge so much money at the exchange of currency.
Stop using ATM: Try not to use ATMs’ at the foreign land whether you have some international banking accounts even because you need to pay extra charges for using the ATM. Therefore, its better you to either take cash with you or the much convenient way is to use credit cards. Talk to your credit company before going and plan accordingly because carry a big amount of money in cash would not be much safer at all.
Pack as Light as Possible: Your packing should be very adequate and light while you go for any trip because too many things will make your journey a boaring and disastrous. If you need to walk somewhere around, with heavy baggage you may not be able to enjoy your way. Moreover, if you indulge in some kind of shopping at your tourist place then you must be ready to carry that too, therefore its fine to pack very intelligently.
Accommodate at the outers: Try to rent accommodation at the outer side of the towns in case you are a little short of money or a budget traveller because it will cost you little less than the main city accommodation.
Multi-country sim card: If possible carry the sim card which can be used in another country too because if you are to cover many European countries at a visit then it may not be possible to buy a new sim card every time and it is very important to have assess of the mobile phone when you are out of the country in case you need to leave some important messages.
