Planning a trip!   Whether you're planning a weekend trip or a 30 days trip, you will need to plan ahead of time so you don't have any surprises after you've left home. Although spontaneous trips can be exciting, a well-planned trip helps ensure relaxation and enjoyment. By planning well, you can ensure you that you and your family can enjoy a hassle-free trip! Here are some tips to help you plan your next trip.

1. Make a packing list. Start making a packing list a few weeks in advance or use the information in our camping trip checklist. By starting a list early, you will undoubtedly think of more things to add. Write them down as you go, then pack everything on your list a day or two before “D” day.

2. Organize your documents. If you’re travelling to another country, make sure that your passport is up-to-date and that it will be for the duration of the trip! Make sure you have suitable travel insurance as well. It's always a good idea to make photocopies of important documents (passport, credit cards, birth certificates etc....) just in case you lose your wallet or purse.

3. Get any vaccinations that you might need. If necessary, make an appointment with your doctor to check what vaccinations you might need or any medicine you should take with you. Common ones to look out for are Typhoid, Malaria and Hepatitis.

4. When packing, keep in mind weather and climatic conditions as well as types of recreation (beaches, culture, shopping) and facilities (transport, eating out, etc) at your destination.

5. Find out what currency you will need and figure out the best way for you to deal with it. Credit cards can be convenient, but the currency exchange rates might be a little steeper. Travellers cheques are a good and safe alternative.

6. Make a list of things to do! Write down the places you want to visit, including restaurants, museums, malls, and other places of interest. This will help give you ideas and prevent being completely lost when you arrive and do not know what to do.

7. Take an address book with you with all the important contacts in it.

8. Notify a friend or family that you will be away. If possible, leave them a contact number or address. Make sure you have arrangements in place for someone to look after your bills, plants and mail.

9. Put vacation notices on your newspapers and remember to set your answering machine.
