Travel with insurance coverage
Visiting a doctor or hospital may not be in your plan while visiting abroad. However what happens in case you are forced to take medical assistance in case of an emergency situation? A proper student travel insurance coverage plan will be useful to pay medical bills, avoid financial loss, and even make sure get access to the care you may need.
packing
Packing
You may wonder as to what clothing to carry and which pair of shoes you should wear while traveling abroad. Try to avoid carrying too many valuables unnecessarily. Make sure that you have copies of your travel documents and that they are kept at different places in your luggage. It is advisable that you avoid carrying too many credit cards or bundles of cash. Travelers checks will be useful while abroad. It is a good idea to keep track of the serial numbers of the checks.
destination
Destination research
One of the most important tasks before leaving on your trip is to do some research on your destination. The destination you are visiting may not have the same laws or regulations you are used to in the States. Be aware of dress codes (formal or not) in your destination and be careful of any drugs (even prescription or over-the-counter ones) you might want to take with you. Never accept bags from strangers in airports, particularly in other countries, nor agree to carry something (even if it seems harmless) for someone else. If you don't want to stand out, leave your baseball caps and clothes with lettering/logos at home. Women should be sure short pants, short skirts, tank tops, etc. are acceptable where they are traveling. Most other cultures dress more formally and modestly than what we are used to State-side.
