Travel Advice - Preparing For A Trip

Check if you need a Visa(s) for the countries you will be visiting. If so find out what days and times the embassy or consulate opens and be prepared to queue.Arriving early helps.

Take some extra passport size photos away with you. They are useful for documents and reports.

You should keep copies of important information such as passport numbers,traveller's cheques, insurance policy numbers and credit/debit card numbers in an ultra-secure online document safe such as my T safe.

Always book your first night's accomodation and try not to arrive in a strange city at night.
