Traveling is one of the most enriching and enjoyable experiences we can have. Getting to know the world we live in gives us a better perspective and understanding. Still, as fun as it may seem, traveling overseas can be very overwhelming, too.

There are a lot of things to take care of, which is why Up & Away Travel in Pembroke Pines has this post for you! You can use this as a checklist for what you shouldn’t forget when traveling internationally. 

What to Take on an International Trip


Visas and Passport

Different countries have different requirements. Some ask for a visa, while others just need a passport. Research, take the appropriate documents and make sure they aren’t expired. You can even take photocopies (along with the originals), so you don’t lose them on your travels.

Money

Cash and your cards. It’s always a good idea to carry with you a bit of cash in the currency your destination handles in case you can’t get to an ATM at first.

Documents

Sometimes, you need certain documents to enter another country. For example, the address of where you’ll be staying during your visit or, if necessary, vaccination records.

Medication

Make sure to restock your medication (and even take your prescription) so you don’t have trouble getting it at your destination.

The Appropriate Wear

It may be summer here, but you never know what kind of weather may be waiting for you on a different point in the globe. Research what the weather will be like and dress accordingly.

Electronics

If you’re visiting a new place, you’ll need your camera and other electronic devices with you! Don’t forget to pack them, along with their chargers and power converters (if needed).

Entertainment

Chances are, your international trip will last more than a few hours. This is why you need to take something to help pass the time. We already mentioned electronics but a book can be helpful too.

Useful Tools

If you’ve never visited this corner of the world before, you’ll need some tools to get around. These can be a map or a translation dictionary if you don’t know the language.
