Miastake #10: Not Confirming
You may think you’ve done everything possible to plan the perfect trip. You’ve outlined an itinerary, you’ve set a budget, you’ve saved for your trip and you’ve spent time carefully packing.
You’re ready to go!
Yet one huge mistake that new travelers often make is failing to confirm reservations. This includes flights, hotels and even attractions, in case weather has caused changes to occur, or flights have been delayed.
Double-check that if any of your flights have been delayed or rescheduled, that they still align with any connecting flights you have booked.
You also want to double-check any travel documents, including your passport, visa (if required), and other identification.
And finally, make sure your credit cards aren’t set to expire shortly before or
during your trip!
Tip: Make sure you also check in before your flight! This will not only save you time but you’ll be able to confirm that your flight is scheduled to depart on time. It will also give you the opportunity to select your seats, often free of charge.
