Tripps Travel Network Shares Information on Traveling Safely

Tripps Travel Network Shares Information on Traveling Safely

Tripps Travel Network Shares Information on Traveling Safely

Tripps Travel Network shares safety information that begins when you pack to help avoid becoming a target when traveling in a new location.  Do not dress in a way that could mark you as an affluent tourist.  Expensive looking jewelry, for instance, can draw the wrong attention.

Always try to travel light.  You can move more quickly and will be more likely to have a free hand.  You will also be less tired and less likely to set your luggage down, leaving it unattended.

Carry the minimum number of valuables, and plan places to conceal them.  Your passport, cash and credit cards are most secure when locked in a hotel safe.  When you have to carry them on your person, you may wish to put them each in a different place rather than all in one wallet or pouch.  Avoid handbags, fanny packs and outside pockets that are easy targets for thieves.

If you wear glasses, Tripps Travel Network advises to pack an extra pair.  Pack them and any medicines you need in your carry-on luggage. To avoid problems when passing through customs, keep medicines in their original, labeled containers.

Tripps Travel Network suggests packing an extra set of passport photos along with a photocopy of your passport’s information page to make a replacement of your passport easier in the event it is lost or stolen.

Put your name, address and telephone numbers inside and outside of each piece of luggage. Use covered luggage tags to avoid casual observation of your identity or nationality.  If possible, lock your luggage. Though security may require you to keep it unlocked. For more information please visit http://trippstravelnetwork.com/

Tripps Travel Network Updates Winter Packing Tips for 2015/16 Season

Tripps Travel Network is providing tips for packing this winter

Tripps Travel Network is providing tips for packing this winter

For winter travelers, Tripps Travel Network has a fresh list for this year concerning what kinds of clothing to pack for a cool-weather trip and some additional general guidelines about how to pack efficiently for any trip.

Tripps Travel Network has some clothing tips that can save travelers time and trouble. The travel club suggests that when the weather turns cool, it is smartest to pack dark-colored clothing items rather than light-colored ones. What seems like an insignificant detail can pay handsome dividends. Darker colors also don’t look dirty after just one wearing.

More importantly, those who limit their trip clothing to just two or three dark colors have an easier time finding tops and bottoms that match.

Small things mean a lot on trips, which is why Tripps Travel Network also advises those in transit to avoid bulky coats and jackets in favor or lightweight layers. Layered clothing not only warms the body more efficiently, but saves space in suitcases and backpacks.

For those who want to bring along a specialty travel book, they should remember to photocopy only the pages needed and leave the bulky book at home. There’s no reason to pack a five-pound tome when just a dozen or so pages are needed. Tripps Travel Network recommends culling through potential luggage carefully and only packing the essential items.

Rolling shirts, sweaters and pants is a good way to keep them wrinkle-free during a trip. And for a simple, inexpensive way to keep packed clothing smelling fresh, Tripps Travel Network suggests placing one or two dryer sheets in each piece of luggage.

There is no “one-size-fits-all” list of the best clothing to pack for a winter trip, but Tripps Travel Network experts say that 90 percent of winter tourists should consider the following as a minimum clothing ration when packing: one pair of jeans, one or two long- and short-sleeve t-shirts, a couple of more formal dress shirts, one pair of pajamas or sweats, a fleece jacket, two pairs of lightweight pants, one sweatshirt, one windbreaker, a half-dozen pairs of underwear and socks, at least one pair of good walking or hiking shoes or boots, and (for women) two bras.

There is no universal list of what or how to pack for a winter trip, but Tripps Travel Network offers the above recommendations as general guidelines for cold-weather U.S. travel in the 2015/16 season.

Tripps Travel Network is an industry leader that provides its members with the best in customer service and accommodations around the world.

Tripps Travel Network Reveals Top Tips for Packing Light this November

Top Tips for Packing Light this November

Top Tips for Packing Light this November

It is widely known that airlines are charging more for checked bags than ever before. In fact, some airlines are going so far as to charge money for carry-on bags as well. It is for this reason that Tripps Travel Network is sharing some insider tips and tricks on how to pack light and avoid some of these fees when taking a fall vacation.

Invest in a lightweight bag.

Some of the pieces of luggage that people buy can weigh up to 22 pounds on their own. When checking in a piece of luggage, the weight limit is usually 50 points, meaning that the amount of clothing and other necessities that travelers can bring has been cut down right off the bat. It is better to invest in a lightweight and easily maneuverable piece of luggage, even if it is a little more expensive, in order to be able to bring more on the flight instead of having to check in more than one piece of luggage shares Tripps Travel Network

Pack clothing that is versatile.

One mistake that travelers make time and time again is that they pack too much clothing. While there are several ways to combat this mistake, packing mix-and-match clothing is a great way to reduce the amount of items that will be packed. In addition, instead of packing a sweater and a heavy coat, it may be better to pack a hooded sweatshirt, reducing the need for two heavy items in favor of one that is more flexible.

Leave the big bottles behind.
Instead of packing whole bottles of shampoo, conditioner, body wash and other toiletries, Tripps Travel Network advises travelers to stick with travel-sized versions of their favorite items. Small bottles can even be bought to fill with their favorite brand if a travel size bottle is not readily available.

Wash clothes while on vacation.

While no one is dying to do laundry while they are on vacation, if a washing machine and dryer are readily available, Tripps Travel Network recommends washing clothes and reusing them in order to save space in luggage.
