For most people, the least fun part of travel is planning it. Getting everything in order and making sure the trip will be safe and enjoyable can be an intimidating task. By using the following tips, the process can actually be one you enjoy.

Choosing a seat on the aisle will open more options for you. While a window seat offers a view, an aisle seat allows you easy access to restrooms, overhead baggage and flight attendants; in addition, you do not have a person crowding you on one side.

A door stopper is an important thing to bring with you when resting in a hotel. When you are on the road in countries with little or no development, you want some more security with you in the room while sleeping. If the hotel room door does not have a chain or deadbolt, use the doorstop by wedging it under the door and leaving it there while you sleep.

Looking for tickets online when you plan on traveling to a particular location or attraction is an easy way to prepare in advance. In addition, you can print the tickets ahead of time. The long lines and wait times you can avoid make a service fee for this process well worth the money. Not only that, you may be able to skip the lines for entry as well.

When you travel, you always need to keep up with your belongings. If you have a purse, keep it close to your body with your arm on it at all times. Do not purchase bags that have easy open zippers and compartments. The easier the bag is to open, the more likely someone can slip away with something while you are distracted. Take these things into consideration when searching for a reliable travel bag.

You can use eco-friendly services during your travels. There are several hotels that offer an eco-friendly program. When you know where to look, you can find many ways to stay green when you are on the road.



Taking a trip sometimes causes you pack too much. To avoid taking too much, just take the necessary toiletries. Jot down the items you really can't do without for more than a day or so. Pack the most important things.

To adjust to a new time zone faster, stay awake until at least 8pm local time. Though you may be tired, it's best to not go to bed early so you don't exacerbate jet lag. Jet lag will go away as soon as you're on the local schedule, so get your body adjusted as quickly as possible.

Sign up for forums and social websites that focus on travel. A great way to prepare for any trip is to socialize on these forums and ask questions and read stories from other travelers. This lets you make friends and share experiences to avoid making their mistakes or missing some great spots on your own trip.

Major airlines have e-newsletters you may be able to subscribe to and find deals. Their online newsletters often include last-minute discounts, special offers and other promotions not offered to any other consumers. When you're not looking to travel anytime soon, simply delete those emails without reading them.
