You know it, I know it, and the Mayo Clinic knows that stress is harmful to your health. I wanted to share a few travel stress points that I’ve seen and experienced 1st hand!
Hopefully you will remember to check the expiration date on your passport and drivers license many months before you travel, but many people don’t! The last thing you want to do is scramble to renew your passport/drivers license at the last minute!
If you’re traveling to Mexico, you need to make sure to complete the Mexico Tourist Card online before you head south! https://www.mexicotouristcard.com/
It’s normal to be concerned about your health during your vacation! The Palladium Hotel Group is giving free COVID related health insurance to all guests! https://www.palladiumhotelgroup.com/en/stay-safe-covid19
You can also buy travel insurance from private companies, but be sure to read the fine print for exclusions! The peace of mind you receive by having travel insurance in case of unexpected problems is worth every penny you pay!
Traveling with kids
We’ve all seen families on planes with small kids. Adults cringe when a baby starts crying, especially if the baby is in 1st class! It’s amazing to me that parents bring a ton of electronic devices, neck pillows and thousands of snacks to keep little Brittany quiet! I’m going to wait until my grandkids are a little bit older before I take them to an all-inclusive resort, but looking forward to taking them on a cruise!
Going through security
It’s beyond me that even frequent travelers don’t think ahead about going through security. It’s critical that you put everything in your pockets in those trays that go through the x-ray machine. Parents have to ensure that kids put their devices in those trays!
The key is to minimize these top travel stress points to make your travel experience the best it can be!
