Hotel etiquette calls for tipping the bellhop and housekeeping staff. Standard tips are generally $1 for each piece of luggage, and $2-$5 for the housekeeper each day of your stay. You can almost guarantee that you will have a pleasurable stay by doing so.
Make travel a learning experience for you and your family. If you take reasonable precautions, there is no reason to fear travel to the developing world. It can be a great chance to show your children how the world outside of your country works. You can gain a better knowledge and understanding of other cultures if you spend time traveling abroad.
Before you set off on a trip outside of the country, purchase an electrical adapter or voltage converter from a discount electronics store. If you wait till you get to the airport to purchase one, you will likely pay more than twice the local price.
Make sure to brush your dogs before departing on any long car trips. This will get the extra hair off and cut down on the hair that gets left behind in your car. Also be sure to include all necessities for your dog like bowls, leashes and clean up materials.
If you plan to bring your dog along on a trip, make sure that it has been properly trained and is able to adapt to new settings and experiences easily. Your pet should be leash trained and listen well; you should always keep them on a leash if you are around a lot of people. You can be sure of your pet’s safety if he is under your control while traveling.
A hotel is your home away from home while traveling; it is important, however, to remember that you are not alone while staying there. Be sure to keep your noise level down so you do not disturb your neighbors. Even mid-day, someone may be napping or recovering from a bad case of jet lag. Tiptoeing is not needed but talking softly is greatly appreciated.
Make sure to research the hotels/resorts that you are thinking about staying in, to make sure they will provide the accommodations you desire. This can save you from having a bad experience when you travel, as you will be able to avoid places that have a bad reputation.
