Top 5 General Travel Tips

1. Don't go into debt to go on vacation.

2. Always get Travel Insurance.  There are several benefits to having it and if you don't, the unexpected can be quite costly.

3. Hire Guides for Excursions and Tours

    - Nothing makes tours better than a personable local guide to share all the history and local lore on your tour. 

4. It is best to use Credit Cards on vacations because they are more secure than debit cards and will usually have reward earnings while you are away from home.

5. How much cash should you carry?

The working theory suggests that carrying $50 - 100 in cash per day for each traveler is best. However, the particular destinations and vacation types may require more or less. 

    - The safest way to carry cash on trips is in money belts and neck wallets that lay flat under clothing. In addition, it is wise to not have all of your cash in one place. 

Top 5 Family Travel Tips

1. Don't overbook or over pack - be sure to allow for down time once you arrive at your destination and when you get back.

2. Choose vacations with endless entertainment options

3. When traveling with babies and toddlers bring plenty of diapers, wipes and snacks.

4. When flying with young kids, be strategic with your flight times. 

5. Safety and Security - consider ways to keep track of your children, to talk to your children about important safety measures and awareness and on what to do if anyone is separated.

Group Travel Tips

1. Designate a leader or two. Play to the strengths of the group members and select leaders that will guide that will help keep the group plans on track, on budget and on target.

2. Set a budget everyone can meet and then stick to it! No one wants surprises, so definitely pack in a little extra cushion on that budget JUST IN CASE.

3. Work with your WanderLux Travel Advisor to find the best travel options at the best rates. Your Agent will be able to find out if there are any Group Tours, Group Rates or other benefits if they are given plenty of time to research! Be sure to let them know what the group goals are for the trip.

4. Make sure everyone is aware of the travel deposits and payments due to keep the vacation booked. Set reminders so everyone is ready to pay at each increment. 

5. Alone time is good on group trips too. Everyone needs their own space from time to time. Be sure to not overbook you trip to where individuals do not have time to explore and even relax on their own.

6. When planning group activities, try to include activities that appeal to all or most. Be sure everyone feels included!
