Information for air travellers – Bon Voyage

Whether you are a first time traveller or a more seasoned one, there are a few tips that can help you navigate the world of air travel.

1

Get the best airfare

You can find the best deals for air tickets on some days of the week as well as certain hours during the day. If you are looking to get your hands on cheap flight tickets, compare flights from various airlines and approach an air travel service provider that might be able to help you. During the holiday season, flighty ticket fares tend to go up but if you travel on the day of the holiday itself, you will be able to find a bargain.

2

Get your passport and visa ready

Make sure all the documents required to book a flight and visit your destination are ready. You need to check if your passport is ready and have all the other documents in hand to travel overseas. Consult a reliable travel agent if you are not familiar with the process. You could ask an acquaintance who has travelled recently to help you figure out which documents to prepare.

3

Immunization

If you wish to travel to certain regions of the world, you need to provide proof of immunization. First of all, do some research and ask your travel services provider to advice you on the required medical background. Armed with the information gathered, visit your doctor.

4

Fill up on your prescription drugs

If you are currently taking medication, make sure to take enough of your medication to last throughout the trip. It is a good idea to take certain over the counter medication with you to avoid facing difficulties if you suddenly fall ill. Be aware that you might experience diarrhoea, jellyfish stings, headaches and jetlag during your trip. However, be mindful of the fact that in certain countries even prescription medication can be illegal.

5

Check out various packages

Most travel services providers such as Macktrip.com provides various options to suit different travellers or travel groups. Before you make a decision, talk to an agent and browse through such offers. You are most likely to find a travel package that is ideal for you.

6

Be flexible with dates and destinations

You can save a lot if you are willing to be flexible with your travel dates and destination airports. Check with your service provider which days of the week offer cheaper flight rates and whether it makes sense to change flight destinations to cut down on your spending.

7

Think about your finances

Sometimes exchanging currency and carrying cash might not be enough. Don't stick to a single method of payment. Prepare your credit and debit cards as well as an ATM card that will work in the country that you are visiting. However, it is important to have cash on hand (local currency). Don't forget to check the exchange rate before you exchange currency and avoid unreasonable charges. Some countries accept US dollars and it is a good idea to have some in your possession.
