Traveling can be about more than fun. It can also be about education. For many people, traveling is out of reach because of finances or time constraints. Follow these suggestions so you can use the time you have on vacation to have fun and save money.
Find out where the airline has automatically seated you. If you are unhappy with the placement ask to be re-seated. Often you will be able to choose your exact seat, but occasionally that option is not available. If you are unable to reserve a certain seat at the time of booking, be sure to check back shortly to see if it is available before your actual day of travel. Being able to choose your own seat can make a huge difference.
Avoid panicking if you’ve gotten off a flight but your bags have not arrived at your destination. Visit the lost baggage office and present your flight documents to them. They can help to locate your luggage and get it to you. Usually they will find your luggage and forward it to you as soon as a driver is available.
In order to get your body to get used to a different time zone, it is recommended that you do not go to bed until 8 P.M. or later. Even if you feel like you must go to sleep, avoid going to bed too early when you travel across time zones. If you do, you may prolong your jet lag as your body will not have adjusted to the new time. It’s easier to overcome jet lag if you adjust to the local time as quickly as possible.
