12 Costly Mistakes You Need to Stop Making When Traveling

Posted on

9. Booking in advance

Early booking will probably work if you have a strict schedule you need to stick to. Otherwise, it makes sense to avoid booking in advance as much as possible. It will let you stay in a place you like for longer and will probably get you a discount from the hotel. And if you really want to leave the place earlier, you won’t have to pay a fee to change tickets.

8. Exchanging money

Yes, that’s right. Your bank card will carry the best currency exchange rates, so avoid bringing a lot of cash with you. Now you won’t have to pay anything extra while exchanging money. Just don’t forget to get a bank card that reimburses all ATM fees before you travel, and withdraw cash whenever you need it.

7. Getting pickpocketed

There is nothing worse than being in a foreign country, thousands of miles away from home, with no documents, credit cards, or phones. Try not to wear expensive designer clothes and bags if you don’t want to attract pickpockets. Split your valuable things into different bags, leave something in the hotel safe, consider buying a money belt, and always keep an eye on your possessions.
