The best travel tips for accomplishing your travel this year would be
- Make a Wish List – Don’t make too many places, just choose a couple of travel destinations that you really wanted to visit.
- Plan during off-season – You can save money when you visit the destination during off-season. But it depends, if you want to see and enjoy snow, then obviously you need to visit in season times.
- Know about the place – Check the flight rates, hotels, distance between the destination you land and the sightseeing places. Also make a research on what the most popular places to visit, which you shouldn’t miss.
- Book the flight tickets first – once you decide book the flight tickets, as mostly the flight rates go high as the date nears.
- Check for local tour operator – you can choose a local tour operator or else you can hire a car for self-drive or with a driver to cover most of the places.
- Enquire about Public Transportation – Generally, public transportation is cheaper. So, find some information about the public transportation and frequency of travel.

- Handy Medicines & First Aid Kit – Take some handy medicines for head ache, vomiting, fever, diarrhea etc. so you can use it when required. Also carrying a glucose would be a best idea while traveling.
