  5. Notify your bank: Notify your bank and credit card companies that you will be traveling. This will help prevent any hold on your account due to suspicious activity.
  6. Get a travel rescue plan: Consider getting a travel rescue plan. This will provide coverage for any unforeseen circumstances that may arise during your vacation.
  7. Renew your passport: Make sure your passport is valid and has not expired. Renew it if necessary well ahead of your trip.
  8. Take care of your home: Make sure your home is secure and safe while you’re away. Unplug unnecessary electronics and appliances, ask a neighbor to keep an eye on things and have the necessary arrangements made for pets if you have any.
  9. Pack smart: Pack smart and pack light. Make a list of things you will need to carry and stick to it.
  10. Keep important documents handy: Keep important documents such as your passport, travel itinerary, and travel insurance policy in a safe place. This will help you access them quickly if needed.
  11. Charge all devices: Charge all your devices including phones, cameras, and laptops. Carry chargers, power banks, and adapters as per need.
  12. Make a backup: Make a backup of all important documents and store them online or on a secure device. This will help you access them in case of any loss or theft.
  13. Inform your colleagues: Inform your colleagues about your absence and delegate your work to someone reliable. This will help you avoid any work-related stress while on vacation.
  14. Arrange for transportation: Arrange for transportation to and from the airport, your accommodation and to any activities or events planned.
