Build a schedule “Before leaving on a tour”
While a tour agency can help plan a tour for you, there are some things that have to be done by you. Whether it’s a long-term trip, an expatriation, a world tour, or a long vacation, there are things to do before going on a trip and the best is to build a list or a calendar so that you don’t forget anything. before departure and to do everything on time: resignation, sale of the house, bank, social security, visas, insurance… the list is long, but everything is important!
Here is a list of everything I had to do before leaving and it has been my guide during all the months of preparations.
For visas, to know when I have to do them, I prefer to go directly to the site of the given embassy to have the most reliable and up-to-date information. Think there are tourist visas, work visas, student visas and special permits for children under 30 years as PVT (Working Holiday).
Build a route or even, have a tour agent build it for you
Whether or not to build your itinerary, for a tour, that is the question? Choosing the right travel agency can go a mile in helping you build a tour right. Travel agencies such as right choice, offer elaborate tour packages, and custom tour packages that help you understand a clear route with respect to your travel. Such packages are well done and allows you to plan your trip according to the climate and the budget. Not bad is not it?
Nothing better than a tour operator or travel guide to know the climate according to the region and the period and the festivals not to be missed. Don’t forget to think about specific situations.
