Tips to get ready for Foreign Trip

Your most important safety decision will be choosing safe accommodations

Getting on TripAdvisor to read a few reviews and get a sense of price is always a good first step. Ask yourself questions like, Why is this hotel in a different part of town $100 less than this one over in this neighborhood? Get in touch with a friend or a friend of someone you know who is intimately familiar with the place you want to visit. We often receive emails from women wanting to get in touch with a writer of a particular article. We encourage you to get in touch with us!While you are checking into your hotel, always grab two of the hotels business cards that you will keep on your person everywhere you go. Keep one in your wallet, and one in your pocket. There are all kinds of scenarios where you potentially will be glad you did this, from getting lost to injured to robbed.Upon entering your hotel room give things a quick inspection. Be sure all door deadbolts and locks on windows (especially on lower floors) operate correctly. Do not hesitate to ask to switch if something does not seem quite right.
