TRAVEL TIPS

 

  1. B

When you change money, ask for some small notes or loose change. Petty cash will be handy for tipping and public transportation. Consider keeping the change separate from your larger notes, so it’s readily accessible and you’ll be less of a target for theft. Try to spend your coins before you go home as many banks will only exchange notes.

 

  1. D

 

Check your existing insurance policies and credit card cover before you buy travel insurance. You may already be covered for lost luggage, cancelled tickets or medical expenses. The price of travel insurance varies widely, depending on the length of your trip, your age, health and the type of trip you are taking.

 

  1. C

Rather than book a flight through a travel agency, many people nowadays save money by booking online. It’s a good idea to check out airline websites. By booking directly through the airline you can avoid a travel agency’s transaction fee. Great last-minute deals are available through free weekly email services provided directly by the airlines.

 

  1. C

 

Travellers these days have many ways to check email and access the Internet on the road. Of course, using your own laptop gives the most flexibility but other options, such as cybercafés or hotel business centres, are widely available. You can also access the Internet in some tourist information centres, though their fees are usually higher than those in cybercafés.

 

  1. A

Tie a colourful ribbon or a strip of fabric around your luggage handle, or put a distinctive sticker on the side of your bag. This makes it less likely that someone will take your luggage by mistake. Also if your bag gets lost, it will be easier to find. One major airport in the UK currently has a lost bag ratio of 16 bags per 1000 customers.
