How to Overcome Common Travel Worries?

No matter how excited you get about holidays, it’s very common to have worries before (and during) any vacation. This is because you’re heading off to an unfamiliar location, and could face lots of challenges, irrespective of whether you’re holidaying in a far-flung destination or somewhere closer to home.

Tips on overcoming some of the most common travel worries include:

 

  1. Stay calm and focus on the travel benefits

Instead of constantly chewing over the worries you have about your holiday, try to steer your mind towards the benefits. For example, the potential adventures and experiences you’ll have while away, and the opportunities to interact with individuals from different cultures. If you’re planning an adventure holiday, research all the skills you’ll need to learn and discover more about the different activities you’ll embark upon.

  1. Worries about falling ill before the trip

It’s common to worry about illness or emergencies that could mean you need to cancel your trip, but one of the best ways to overcome this is to arrange comprehensive travel insurance at the time of booking. Cancellation worries are the major concern of most travellers, but even if the worst does happen there’s no reason to be worried about losing money. Check the small print of your insurance to make sure cancellation is covered.

According to a survey, 21% of all travellers are worried about airport delays and flight cancellations before their trip. Again, this kind of issue can be easily solved if you plan in advance and put insurance in place. Other common airport worries include overcrowding and concerns about flying with kids, and one of the best ways to solve these concerns is to book out of season any time you plan to travel overseas.

  1. Collapse of holiday firm

The recent collapse of Thomas Cook and other travel and flight providers have illustrated just how fragile the holiday market is today. They also show that simply opting for the travel guarantees from providers and checking they are part of the ABTA scheme is not enough. When Thomas Cook collapsed, thousands of holidaymakers were stranded overseas, including many people who had booked special breaks, such as weddings. Although this is an unlikely scenario, it’s still worth double-checking that your insurance covers disasters like these.

  1. Plan ways to stay safe throughout your vacation

Lots of travellers worry about the safety aspects of trips, and it’s important to ensure high levels of safety, wherever possible. Whether you’re travelling for work or leisure purposes, some of the things to put in place include:

 

Researching your travel destination in advance, so you know all the areas where crime and scams are more common.

  • Find out about the local culture and acceptable behaviours – so that you don’t risk offending any of the locals you meet or breaking any laws.
  • Pack copies of all essential documentation, such as passports, bank and credit cards, and driving documents. This will ease your mind if theft should happen, and make it easier to access the help needed. Of course, if there is a safe available at your accommodation, it’s always a good idea to keep valuables and important documents securely inside.
  • Being robbed while on holiday is one of the most common travel worries, yet putting good travel insurance in place before any holiday and making contingency plans beforehand will help you overcome these concerns. One of the difficulties associated with claiming for cash and valuables that are stolen while you’re away is proving what you had with you, so taking photographs before you head off on holiday can solve this problem.
  • Staying vigilant while visiting unfamiliar locations is also an important safety measure. Listening to music on headphones or continually brandishing your expensive smartphone can increase risks of opportunistic crimes against you, and also divert your attention when it could be most needed
  • Finally, take time to check out official websites for government travel tips prior to any trip overseas.

Travelling can be an anxiety-inducing experience for all of us, but with the right preparation and research you’ll feel far more relaxed before your next trip. Enjoy!

Why Travelling Alone Is Not A Bad Idea?

There are plenty of reasons to go on vacation alone as you will meet many solo travelers who all had their own story!

Traveling alone because no one is available- You have set days off (or you have been taxed), but no one around you can leave at the same time as you. Should we deprive ourselves of traveling or say that we will take full advantage of this moment to concoct a program in line with his tastes?

Your friends do not travel like you- The search for the right travel companion is not always obvious, and sometimes your friends do not have the same way of traveling as you.

Leaving alone is sometimes better than leaving with people who do not have the same vision of holidays and with whom the stay can become a source of tension or frustration.

Luxury Tour and Trip

Traveling alone to live your holidays differently- Luxury Tour and Trip is not necessarily a “default” trip, it can be a real choice. Because it makes it easier to meet the locals, to concoct a route that immerses you at 800% in the destination (and which corresponds to 800% to your tastes!), because it offers flexibility unheard of (whether in the choice of the destination, the budget spent, the program of the stay). The solo trip can be a decision perfectly assumed!

Going alone to think of yourself- Going on vacation alone is also confronting oneself. Find what makes you vibrate but also take on you to overcome some fears, whatever they are (fear of the language barrier, fear of scams and security problems, fear of getting lost, etc.). We learn a lot about ourselves, and it makes the experience very powerful.

How to leave alone without worry?

A solo trip offers you the unique opportunity to have a blank piece of paper in front of you, on which you can compose the itinerary of your dreams!

Find the perfect destination

There are surely places you dream of visiting. And maybe places you do not know yet that will arouse your curiosity. Some wait to have “found the right person” to make these trips: and if you leave alone, now? If the place is really fantastic, you’ll want to go back with the people you love, and you’ll experience it differently!

It is a good way to refine your choice and especially, to avoid the “errors of the season”: when you travel alone, you do not have the look of a second “companion” who will ask you the good Questions. “Uh but it’s not the monsoon/cyclone season at this time?

A little organization

Obviously, everyone travels as he wants, but when you go alone, you can only rely on yourself, so it is sometimes useful to provide a minimum route and take some precautions.

Master your budget

Solo wine Travel tends to be expensive if only because you do not share accommodation with someone. Many places still practice the “individual room supplement” even if we have the impression that for a few years, there are more and more single rooms in the hotels. It is, therefore, useful to set a budget limit and take it into account when choosing your destination by taking the margin!

Eat alone at the restaurant

It may be the point that seems to me still a bit difficult on a solo trip! At lunchtime, everything is fine: that is what a lot of business travelers do when they are traveling for a meeting in another city.

HYDERABAD: A CITY DOWN SOUTH DEFINING ANCIENT INDIA MAJESTICALLY

Charminar-3

Hyderabad is the capital of the newly formed state of Telangana, separated from Andhra Pradesh. A princely state once, it still holds the charm and majestic beauty of ancient India and is a luxurious destination for travellers all around the world. Hyderabad is one of the major centers for the technology industry in India and till date, it enriches the visitors with all that we’ve studied over the years in our History textbooks about Deccan. This city was established in 1591 by Muhammad QuliQutb Shah, and it remained under the QutbShahi dynasty for about a century until Mughals invaded it, and in the 18th century, a Mughal viceroy AsifJah formed his dynasty called the Nizams of Hyderabad. And hence, we often use the title ‘City of Nizams’ whenever we talk about Hyderabad.

Hyderabad is also known for its pearl and diamond trading and its from here that it gets yet another title of ‘City of Pearls.’

PLACES TO VISIT

14

If you truly want to cherish the beauty of this historical city, a short trip isn’t an option. Instead, contact any of the luxury tour operators in India and create a well-planned itinerary to fully explore Hyderabad in all its beauty and earthiness(especially old Hyderabad).

The most famous Charminar or the global icon of Hyderabad(as it’s popularly known), is a historical monument(also a mosque) located centrally in the city and it attracts the maximum number of tourists.

That’s not all. Other places that one must surely visit, when in Hyderabad are Golconda Fort, Salarjung Museum (highly recommend), Chowmohalla Palace, (again recommend), pearl and bangle markets of Laad Bazaar, Sultan Bazaar and Begum Bazaar(Shopping alert: Girls, you would want to carry some large handbags).

Also for all the film freaks out there, a visit to the largest film arena in Asia called the Ramoji Film City is going to be an enthralling experience.
