Taking a business trip or travelling on vacation can be both fun and fulfilling. But how can you optimize the experience and ensure you have a successful trip? Here are some top travel tips.

To keep your travel plans within budget, make arrangements as far in advance as possible. This enables you to make savings on air fares, hotel rooms and many other things. Keep last minute expenditure to a minimum to make your travel budget stretch further.

Let family or friends have a copy of your travel itinerary to family or friends. Then they'll know where you are, and how to contact you in an emergency.

Place all of your travel items in the same place. Avoid time searching for all the little things you only use for traveling. Place all of your travel necessities in one spot, such as a bin under the bed where it is out of the way but still easy to access the next time you want to travel.

When you travel, only take things you actually need with you. The fewer items you have, the less risk of having valuable items stolen or lost. If you are doing a lot of travelling, consider leaving heavy items, such as numerous pairs of shoes behind, as you will only end-up carrying them.

If you are flying, make sure you leave enough time to get to the airport, allowing for traffic or pubic transport delays. There is nothing worse than worrying you will miss your flight, or not leaving enough time to clear security or passport control.

If flying makes you nervous, work off your anxiety with a walk or a jog before you head to the airport. . Longer flights can be hard on your body. Your back and legs can start to cramp up after sitting for such a long time period. If you get a quick workout before boarding the flight, it can help to reduce the chance of getting leg cramps. If nothing else, try stretching a little. Make sure you move around a little during the flight.

Always make sure your passport is with you or locked in a hotel safe. Never give it to a stranger .Be as street smart as you would in your own town or country. Don’t trust strangers, and avoid dark or unlit areas.

If you must use public computers whilst on the move, try to avoid using sensitive data or information where possible, especially involving money. Public computers may be equipped with key loggers which will save your information and potentially make it available to others.

When reserving a room at a hotel, ask if there are any plans for renovation or construction, either in the hotel or vicinity. Hammering or drilling could ruin your stay, so it is better to avoid visiting that hotel during the dates in question.

Travel can be both exciting and stressful. However, by careful planning, you can reduce the stress and increase the enjoyment of your next trip.
