Dos/Dont's

 

Your safety is our  top priority during the Tour program. Here is list of do and don’ts for you to apply 

DO

DO know your personal space. As a rule of thumb, reach your hand out in front of you – this distance is your personal space.
DO listen to and abide by the safety instructions given by your Tour Leaders or Local Guide and Activity Operators.
DO share any personal medical information with Tour Managers.
DO keep important documents such as your passport, ID, some emergency cash, credit cards, insurance policy, copy of your airline ticket, etc., separate from the bulk of your luggage on travel days so that they are secure and within your reach at all times.
DO wear a money belt
DO wear a money belt/pouch; many travelers wear them. They can also be worn under layers of clothes, making them almost theft-proof. Cargo pockets with buttons or zippers serve the same purpose (make sure the pockets are on the side of your leg).
DO label all your belongings with your name and contact details.
DO wash and dry your hands thoroughly before every meal. Practicing good hygiene is an important part of preventing gastrointestinal infections.
DO carry your Travel voucher with you at all times, as this has important contact numbers and address details, particularly for your Adventure Tour.
DO try to memorize and/or photocopy as many important numbers as possible in case anything is lost or stolen, (i.e., passport, ID, driver’s license, insurance policy, airline ticket, and credit/debit/travel cards). Leave a copy of these numbers with someone at home.
DO inquire about any unsafe areas from tourist information centers in your area, your accommodations, orTour Leaders.
DO remember to look BOTH ways when crossing the street. Traffic may be coming from a different direction than you are used to, so be extra careful!

 

Some more points to Consider

 

  • Ask permission before taking photos of locals. It can potentially be seen as invasive if you get snap happy without checking that you’re okay to do so.
  • Consider your gestures. Things such as pointing can be seen as rude in certain cultures.
  • Tip where appropriate. Tipping is a lot more traditional in other cultures than it is in the UK. But be sure to check the tipping etiquette for the particular country you are in. Some cultures see it as an insult!
  • Learn the local language. Try your best to learn a little bit. Even just please and thank you.
  • Try the local food. It may not be what you’re used to, but it’s always polite to try and immerse yourself in the local culture of the place that you’re visiting.
  • Be mindful of others when playing music. We all love to make a holiday playlist, but don’t have it blaring out of your hotel room for all to hear when trying to relax around the pool.
  • Dress respectfully for your environment. Don’t go visiting a local temple or rocking up to dinner in your swimmers.
  • Turn down the brightness. If you’re struggling to sleep on a night flight and want to use your device, turn down the brightness of your screen so that those around you can still get some rest.
  • Embrace haggling. If bartering is a way of life in the country that you’re visiting, enjoy the experience and try not to be rude. These people are just trying to make a living.
  • Do be aware of your surroundings, and watch for suspicious people or vehicles.
  • Do use cash substitutes such as traveler's checks or credit cards, and only carry as much money as you immediately need.
  • Do lock up valuables you are not taking with you in a safe in your room or use your hotel’s safe-deposit box services to store them; and lock the windows and doors your hotel room when going out.
  • Do make a note of your passport number; if it becomes lost or stolen, knowing the number will speed up getting a replacement.
  • Do make a note of your credit-card numbers and the phone number to call in case you need to report it stolen and cancel it.
  • Do dress appropriately for your surroundings as much as you can; looking more like a local makes you less of a mark than looking like an obvious tourist.
  • Do put a band around your luggage as a safeguard against pilferage while in transit; suitcase locks are no barrier to a professional thief.
  • Do travel with companions while sightseeing or shopping; there is safety in numbers.
  • Do keep vehicle doors locked and windows rolled up when driving.
  • Do be alert for staged distractions, such as someone bumping into you, spilling a drink on you, dropping something in front of you or causing a loud commotion; an accomplice can steal your valuables and walk away while you are momentarily distracted.
  • One final piece of advice: Don't become a tourist offender. Don’t solicit prostitutes, buy illegal drugs, or attempt to smuggle goods out of the country. 

 

DON’TS

 

  • DON’T carry large amounts of money on you at any time.
  • DON’T keep your cash/wallet in your back pocket.
  • DON’T take your money out and count it on the street.
  • DON’T ever drive or ride on the back of motorbikes. This is the number one cause of fatalities for tourists traveling in many foreign countries.
  • DON’T leave your money dangling in a bag that can easily be grabbed off your shoulder.
  • DON’T walk on small, unlit or unsafe looking and unfamiliar streets at night, especially alone (always travel in pairs and groups of three are better).
  • DON’T hitchhike. Ever!!
  • DON’T lose sight of your bags or valuables, particularly in airports, bus/train terminals, restaurants/bars/cafes and any other area frequented by lots of people.
  • DON’T accept drinks from strangers, nor lose sight of your drink at any time.
  • DON’T consume alcohol prior to participating on any activity . This is a danger to yourself and others, and you will not be permitted to join the activity for safety reasons.
  • DON’T lose your passport or wallet. Clearly you won’t aim to do this, but to ensure it, always know where they are and keep them locked safe in your room when possible. Consider carrying copies of your passport and important documents on you when venturing into the city.
  • DON’T share water bottles or other drinks; chances are you’ll share stomach bugs and other illnesses too.
  • DON’T eat near a major tourist site ,The food near any major attraction is going to be double the price and half the flavor of what you’ll find elsewhere. 
  • DON’T exchange money at the airport ,You’ll get the worst exchange rates if you do.
  • DON’T bring traveler’s checks, They are absolutely useless these day.
  • DON’T skip travel insurance, It may seem like a ridiculous added expense, but travel is about the unknown, and you never know what can happen on the road. You can break a leg, lose a camera, pop an eardrum scuba diving, or have to leave a country because of a any disaster. Travel insurance protects you when you are overseas and shouldn’t be avoided — it’s the smart thing to get.
  • DON’T skip International Sim card. Many places Wifi will not help your, Sim card will be  24X7 option to contact your family members or your Travel agent for any Emergency.

 

Some more points to consider

 

  • Don't Recline your chair as far back as you possibly can on a plane. Or any other mode of transport for that matter. And whilst we’re on the subject, share the armrests fairly.
  • Don't Jump the queue at the boarding gate. There’s no rush to try and get on the plane before others. It’s going to leave at the same time regardless.
  • Don't Block the moving walkways. Try and keep yourself and your suitcase to one side of the airport walkway so that those in a rush can still get past.
  • Don't Abuse a book exchange. Everyone loves to get lost in a good book on holiday. But don’t pinch a book from a hotel book exchange and not bother putting one back in its place.
  • Don't Be overly greedy at all-you-can-eat buffets. You really don’t need seven sausages at the All Inclusive breakfast. Or that fourth heaped plate.
  • Don't Hog the sun loungers. There’s nothing worse than when people put a towel down before breakfast and then don’t turn up to use it until mid-afternoon.
  • Don't Get mad if you can’t find Wi-Fi or a phone signal. You’re on holiday. The instagram uploads and Facebook check-ins can wait.
  • Don't Be late for excursions or organised trips. It eats into other people’s holiday time and you might end up missing out on something as a result.
  • Don't Be unprepared. No one wants to be that person at the front of the queue, rooting for your passport in the bottom of your bag.
  • Don't carry and flash large sums of cash, nor exchange money at dubious-looking places or with individuals on the street.  
  • Don’t look like a tourist by dressing like one, appearing lost or consulting a map in public.
  • Don’t walk with a bag slung loosely over one shoulder, and keep your bag on the opposite side of you from the road to forestall a thief on a bike from snatching it.
  • Don’t carry a backpack that looks like luggage.
  • Don't visit dangerous locations, or walk in unfamiliar, isolated or dimly lit areas, especially at night.
  • Don't leave valuable items in public view; that includes your passport as much as your iPhone.
  • Don't drive an obvious rental car, the more nondescript the better; keep maps and travel brochures out of sight in the glove compartment.
  • Don't park anywhere but a well lit place, don't leave valuables in sight (lock them in the trunk), and don’t pick-up hitchhikers.
  • Don’t keep your vehicle and house or hotel keys on the same key ring.
  • Don’t store cash, jewelry, medicine or other valuables in your luggage, and never leave your luggage unattended, even for a brief moment.
  • DON'T Talk Politics
  •  DON'T Spend Too Much Time In Your Room
  • Dont buy crafts or products made from protected or endangered animals.

 

Lastly, you might want to print this document or email it to yourself so that you can be reminded of the tips that best apply to your current circumstances.
Wishing you a safe journey; the best experience travel experience of your life will also be a safe one.

Items to be Carry

 

Step 1: Collect Important Travel Documents, Cash, and Credit Cards


Start by collecting all of your important documents  ( a passport, ID,  credit cards, documents and a pen!).
This will help ensure everything you need to get from one place to the next is all in one place. Think about including the following documents:

  • Passport/visa(s)
  • Personal ID, including a student ID card if you have one
  • Frequent flyer card(s) and other loyalty program cards such as a hotel or hostel
  • Cash and credit card(s)
  • Health insurance cards/document(s)
  • Travel insurance info
  • Reservations and itineraries
  • Hotel and/or tour contact information
  • Transportation tickets (plane, train, bus, car, etc.)
  • Emergency contacts and important addresses


It’s a good idea to double-check your passports and IDs aren’t expired. You’ll also want to inform your bank if you’re traveling abroad so they don’t assume fraudulent activity and freeze your card. You may also want to email yourself a copy of your passport, driver’s license, medical cards and itinerary, so if anything happens to them you’ll be able to access them online.

 

Step 2: Prepare Your Personal Item Carry-On Bag


The next thing you’ll want to do is prepare your personal item carry-on bag with anything you’ll want with you on the flight. It’s always a good idea to make sure you have an outfit (or two) and a few essential toiletries in your personal item just in case your luggage is lost. If you’ll be traveling around to multiple destinations, make sure this bag has items to keep you cozy on any train, boat or bus rides. It's always nice to have a bag that's easy to access so you don't have to get in your main travel bag each time you need your eye mask. But remember, you’ll be carrying all of this, so keep it light.
We recommend you consider using a small daypack or backpack as your personal item. Here are some good things to include:

Technology

  • Mobile device and charger
  • iPad or e-reader and charger
  • Camera and/or a video camera, memory card, and charger
  • Electrical converters and adapters


Travel Comfort, Entertainment, and Information

  • ​​Travel pillow, blanket, eye mask, and ear plugs
  • Travel journal and pen
  • Guide books, travel guides, maps, language guides, etc. (if you will need any of these upon arrival at your destination, put it in your carry-on)


Health Items

  • ​​Hand sanitizer or wet wipes
  • Prescriptions in original packaging (you’ll want to make sure you have these in your carry-on bag just in case something were to happen to your checked luggage)
  • Glasses and case

 

Step 3: Choose Your Main Bag


Whatever you're planning, we recommend luggage that is versatile, lightweight and big enough to hold all your essentials. The most important decision you'll make as far as luggage is finding a piece that's versatile and can fit lots of gear while also being easy to carry. If you’ll be going through different types of terrain, or switching from airports to cobblestones, having a bag with the option to roll it or carry it like a backpack or duffel is handy.

 

Step 4: Organize Your Stuff


Here are items you don’t want to forget:

The Basics

  • Lightweight clothing that can be layered
  • Shirts
  • Pants and/or shorts
  • Socks
  • Sweaters
  • Jacket
  • T-shirts
  • Belt
  • Pajamas/sleepwear
  • Underwear
  • Sunglasses
  • Comfortable walking shoes
  • Dress(es)
  • A swimsuit or swim trunks

  You’ll want to pack lots of clothing options if your trip will take you to a variety of places. Having options doesn’t mean you’ll need to over-pack. Just pack smart. Include clothing that can be worn on your adventures and then dressed up slightly with a different pair of shoes and a scarf.

 

Step 5: Pack Your Toiletry Bag


If you’re carrying on, keep your toiletry bag light and TSA-compliant. The TSA’s 3-1-1 rule makes it easy to remember: liquids, gels, aerosols, creams, and pastes must be 3.4 ounces (100ml) or less per container and they must be in a 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag. 
Don’t forget the following for your toiletry case:
The Toiletry Bag Basics

  • Toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash
  • Hair brush or comb, hair ties, barrettes/bobby pins Deodorant
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Sunscreen
  • Make up
  • Face wash and/or makeup remover wipes Moisturizer
  • Lotion
  • Lip balm
  • Personal hygiene items
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Extra contacts, solution, and case

Toiletry Bag Extras

  • ​​Mirror
  • Cologne/perfume
  • Hair products
  • Clothesline and detergent
  • Shaving kit and extra razors
  • Sewing kit/clothing care kit
  • Facial tissues
  • Scissors, nail clippers, and tweezers (must be in checked luggage)

Travel Health

  • First aid kit (bandages, gauze, adhesives, etc.)
  • Personal prescriptions (copies of scripts)
  • Pain and fever relievers (also children’s strength if you are traveling with kids)
  • Thermometer
  • Cold medicines and throat lozenges
  • Diarrhea/laxative medicines
  • Allergy medicines
  • Hydrocortisone cream/antibacterial ointment
  • Multivitamins
  • Sunburn relief
  • Insect repellent/mosquito net/sting reliever
  • Motion sickness pills or bands
  • Eye drops
  • Moleskin
  • Medicines and vaccinations specific to the region/activity

 

Step 6: Pack Your Day Bag


A lightweight, versatile day bag can be used in a variety of ways and help you stay comfortable and prepared.

 

Step 7: Consider Travel Security


In most large cities, travelers should always be on the lookout for pickpockets. The easiest way to keep your belongings safe is to keep them hidden and close to you. One way to do this is to stash your valuables underneath your clothing. You can do this with a money belt, hidden pocket, neck wallet, undercover bra stash, leg wallet, or holster. All of these options let you keep your valuables, such as passports, credit cards, and cash, close to your body and away from prying hands. 

 

Step 8: Prepare Your Home

 

  • Have post office hold mail
  • Stop newspaper delivery
  • Set up an email autoresponder
  • Arrange care of pets, lawn, and plants
  • Pre-pay bills
  • Prearrange school absences for children
  • Empty refrigerator
  • Unplug appliances
  • Turn off heater/air conditioner
  • Turn down water heater
  • Turn off washing machine taps
  • Lock all doors and windows
  • Set up timed light system
  • Store valuables in a safe place
  • Leave house key and trip itinerary with a trusted friend Leave flight and hotel itineraries with a relative
  • Reconfirm/check-in online with airline

If you will be gone for more than 30 days check, it’s a good idea to check with your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance for specific instructions.
