Do Not Do When Travelling!!

Do not do when traveling:
In fact, it is normal to sometimes be wrong when traveling abroad, you can not anticipate everything and you are more focused on tourist attractions, places to visit and enjoy your trip and holidays.
|1. Do not eat near a tourist important site:
Indeed, the food near any major attraction is going to be double the price and half the flavor of what you will find elsewhere.
|2. Do not exchange at the airport
You will get the worst exchange rate if you do it. For the best rates, use an ATM or a credit card. In addition, do not use a credit card with fees, opt for a bank card and credit card with no transaction fees abroad to avoid ATM fees and other additional charges.
|3. Do not just look at search engines based at home
It is obvious that all search engines have blind spots no matter where they are in the world. So by limiting your search to only major search engines, you reduce your chances of finding a good deal.
4. Do not exclude youth hostels
Most people think that hostels have smelly, dirty, bedbug-infested facilities for poor students. It’s a common stereotype that has been perpetuated on television and movies over the years.
|5. Do not skip travel insurance
Travel insurance protects you when you are abroad. We can even say that it is essential to obtain it and it should not be avoided. The insurance is definitely there to protect you in the event of a medical and non-medical emergency.
6. Do not avoid housing exchange networks
The exchange networks allow travelers to stay for free with locals as a result you can share stories and participate in intercultural exchange.
7. Do not take a taxi
Taxis are definitely budget killers, they are always too expensive. Avoid them! The only two times when it’s worth using is when you share the price of the ticket between several people or if you need to go to a place very late at night. Use public transport as much as possible.
|8. Do not book your trip too early
For your flight, wait for the right moment, when airlines start to raise or lower prices depending on demand.
9. Do not skip the local tourist office
They have tips on news, festivals and information off the beaten track that you will not find in any guide. Their job is to literally know everything about where you are. In fact, they are paid to help you. When you arrive in a new city, do not forget to go to the tourist office and ask for information on what to see and do.
