Travellers may think that travelling is just as easy as 1-2-3. However, they should take note that most of the time things do not turn out the way they want them to be. When visiting a foreign country, a lot of things can happen unexpectedly, regardless whether or not they are good or bad.
Travellers going on trips to other countries for the first time especially need to plan everything accordingly before they go on their vacations. Travellers also need to be prepared for the risks in store for them should they go on their vacations on their own.
The following are the travel myths that travellers need to keep in mind to stay away from if they do not want to waste their money:
1. Bring cash or checks to overseas destinations.
Travellers bringing cash or checks to overseas destinations is likely the safest way to go about an unknown city or town, as reported by Time. Travellers need to be cautious when bringing their debit or credit cards wherever they go, especially in countries where identity theft is most common. They need to be on high alert if someone gets too close to steal their personal identification numbers.
Benjamin Glaser, the features editor of Deal News offers this insight for travellers travelling overseas. He said:
"Your bank probably has domestic and international partners that allow you to use their ATMs for low or no fees."
Having said this, travellers can rest assure that they would not have to worry about being unable to withdraw money from their debit or credit card even when they are out of their home country.
But, at times, avoiding bringing credit or debit cards overseas is really just paranoia, as identity thieves do not really exist.
2. Lower price means lower quality.
Travelling to countries where things are cheaper does not always mean bad experiences. Travellers just need to select the areas where they would be travelling in these countries, as suggested by Review-Journal.
3. Not to reserve a room with free breakfast.
In the long run, travellers may just save money having free food daily in the morning, even if the hotel room was pricey. With appropriate calculations, travellers can book a room that enables them to enjoy breakfast daily and save money for food in the long run.
