Did You Turn Off the Coffee Maker? Things You Shouldn’t Forget on the Day of Your Honeymoon Trip.

Honeymoon Greece 9

So much is to think about!  The wedding is over and now some time for just you and your honey!  Here is is some advice from Uniglobe Red Carpet Travel of Wilmington, DE to help you stay calm, organized and ahead of all the obstacles on the day of your trip.

Things You Shouldn’t Forget on the Day of Your Trip

Know your travel details. Check and double check your arrival and departure time. It’s wise to sign up for text or email alerts from the airline itself. Keep an eye on the weather the night before, so you’re aware of any potential issues that could cause delays, and make sure you have plenty of time to get through security. We always recommend arriving at the airport two hours before your flight.

Know where your travel documents are. No passport? No vacation. Make sure to put all your travel documents in a “can’t-miss” spot in your carry-on bag and keep them accessible.

Charge your electronics. Fully charge everything before you leave your home. Also it’s a good idea to download all your entertainment before you leave on your own reliable Wi-Fi. It’ll save you time and frustration on your trip.

Unplug that coffeemaker. And while you’re at it, unplug the TV and other major appliances. Not only is there no question that these items are, in fact, off, but you’ll also protect them from power surges. You’ll even save a few bucks on your next electric bill.

Don’t forget your meds. You can typically replace toiletries and clothing items at your final destination, but finding a place to refill your prescriptions is not as easy. Make sure to keep your medications in your carry-on just in case your checked bag doesn’t show at the final destination.

Don’t travel hangry. Being overly hungry turns some people angry, aka “hangry.” You can take wrapped food through security, so bring a snack and skip overpriced airport meals.

Take photos. Take photos not only of your trip, but also of your bag and travel documents for your records. It’ll make things easier for you should something go missing.
