Tips Before You Travel

General travel tips for before you go

Before you depart on a trip - long or short, there is a lot to think about. We have put together a list of tips and things for you to think about in order to make it easier for you to prepare when your departure date arrives.

• Check- in time is two hours prior to departure for all destinations. You are responsible for checking that the departure time for your flight is consistent with that on your ticket.

• Remember not to pack any sharp items in your hand baggage!  Bike pumps, tool kits and so forth should be packed in your checked in baggage. Cameras are okay to have in your hand baggage, but be sure that it is easy to access in case you need to show it at security control.

 There is still a limitation as to the amounts of liquid that you may take with you onboard the aircraft. You may have a maximum of 100mL of fluids (hair gels, drinks, hand creams, etc) per bottle. Please note that baby food and formula is permitted. Package all fluids in a see-through plastic bag in order to show security. 

• Prior to departure, we recommend you to leave all details of your flights, hotel, insurance number, passport and if applicable, group leader´s name and telephone number, with a family member or friend that won´t be travelling with you. You are most welcome to leave these details with us as well.

• Please note that the rules for entering or transferring through the USA are constantly changing. Contact us for the most updated information, but please note that it is your responsibility to check the rules before your flight dates. 

• Make sure that your passport is up to date. You should have a minimum of six months after the date of your arrival home and you should have two empty pages for any visas required. Note: Some countries require a passport to be valid for longer than six months. Please check with the country's embassy or with us.

• Besides the basic protection that the majority of us already have (tetanus, polio and diphtheria), you may need extra vaccinations depending on where you will be traveling to. Vaccinations should be started at least six weeks prior to your departure date, as several require more than one dose. Contact your local medical clinic for more information. 

• Take important telephone numbers with you such as to the nearest hospital, to your insurance SOS alarm, to VISA or Mastercard, etc. 

• Think about your home. Who will water the flowers, feed the animals, empty the mailbox or shovel the snow?
