Top Travel Tips

As much as all of us here at Hostels.com love to pack our bags and jet off to foreign lands, we know that unfortunately travelling just isn't as easy as that. Airports, traffic, illness, language barriers and lots more issues can make travelling a bad experience for many. Many website and publications have been listing their top travel tips lately, all of which are good advice. Seeing as most of these are compiled by seasoned travellers then they know what they are talking about. Here's just a few of our favourites:

Be careful what you carry-on

One of the downsides when flying with budget airlines is they are getting even stricter about how much you are allowed to bring on the plane with you. Each airline has different restrictions and sizes for your carry-on luggage so do your research before you travel.

Be a strict packer

If you are opting to bring only carry-on then be strict on what you pack. Do not bring any heavy or unnecessary items!

Beat bacteria

Having a travel sized bottle of hand sanitizer on you while your travel will help you avoid picking up bad bacteria

Learn the lingo

You don't have to become fluent in the local tongue but familiarise yourself with a few key words in case you get stuck anywhere on your trip!

So, there's just a sample of some of the top travel tips we'll be sticking too when we jet off again. Have you any advice that you swear by to make travelling easier? Share them with your fellow travel lovers by leaving a comment below!
