I was indecisive about my winter break vacation destination due to my passport. Although I spent nearly $700 on passport and plane ticket, I could not board the plane. Through this, I decided to write about travel guides and the mistakes I have made when traveling. These mistakes include packing, passport, and visa.

APPLY AND RENEW A PASSPORT 6 MONTHS BEFORE BOOKING THE FLIGHT

This hindered me from traveling to another country. I wasted nearly seven hundred dollars on a plane ticket and passport renewal.

BUY TRAVEL INSURANCE

People make the mistake of not buying a travel insurance. There are circumstances that can hinder a person from flying, therefore, buying a travel insurance can ensure a ticket refund.

RESEARCH WHAT YOU CAN BRING ON THE PLANE

Research what you can bring on the plane and the amount of what you can bring. This is important because you do not want to throw away your necessary belongings. For example, an airline requires a 3 oz bottle carry-on.

RESEARCH THE LAWS OF THE COUNTRIES

A friend once told me a story about his friends getting deported from another country because they did not have a visa to enter the country. Before traveling to a country, research on the country visa laws, religious laws, and laws in general.

CHECK THE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

Recognizing a state transport system is important because each state has a different public transports system. Some states have a lot of traffic, so the best way to get to a place is by taking the train while some countries do not have a train.

RESEARCH THE AREA

Knowing the area, and what you can do will make it easier to explore the vacation area. Also, being aware of the activities, attractions and the surrounding is a great way to enjoy the trip. Why? It is a great way to manage your time during the trip. If you plan to travel to Canada, here are things to do 5 Things To Do In Canada
