When traveling abroad, keep your medications in their original bottles. Carry copies of prescriptions as well for verification. Ask your doctor for notes pertaining to any narcotics your medicines may have to show your particular need for them. It is also wise to carry a list of generic names for your medications in case the standard is not available at your destination.

If you are traveling by flight with your animal, and you had to check your pet in to cargo, stand at the gate window and look for your animal being boarded. Be the last to board the plane, and once all of the passengers have boarded, request the gate attendant to radio the baggage area to make sure your pet was loaded.

Plan in advance if you will be traveling overnight. Many international destinations have very long flights. You will want to bring a few things such as a pillow and a small blanket. Sometimes airlines have them available but this is not always the case. Better to look after your own comfort.

Every traveler should know by now that joking around isn’t the smartest thing to do while waiting in check in and security lines any more. Airport personnel are simply too concerned about terrorism to take jokes lightly. Progress through these lines politely and in a businesslike manner. You’re more likely to be treated accordingly.

If you’re traveling with a baby and need to sterilize bottles or teething toys, wash them in hot soapy water, then stop up the sink. Heat some water in the hotel’s coffee maker (without any coffee or tea in it!) and then pour the water over the bottles or teething toys until they’re submerged. Let them sit for about five minutes and you’ll have sterilized them!

Lost luggage is common when traveling, so prepare beforehand by packing some essentials in your carry-on luggage. A change of underclothes, one outfit and a bathing suit enable you to carry on with most of your plans while you wait for your luggage to be located. To cover all bases, buy travel insurance that covers your luggage whether it is lost, stolen or damaged.

Look for coupons online for things you may want to do during your trip. You can get restaurant coupons for free meals when you purchase one meal or discounts on attractions, etc. This proves very helpful when traveling with your whole family and vacations can be very expensive to plan.
