When going on holiday, preparation is the key. You of course cannot plan for every situation, but being prepared can make the difference between a perfect holiday and a disastrous one. First thing to plan is your transport to and from your holiday location, if you are travelling abroad then not only will you need to consider your flight details but also how you are going to get to and from the airport each way. If you do not plan this you may find yourself paying well over the odds for a black cab to and from the airports.
The next thing to consider is that you have all the correct and relevant documents needed for your holiday such as passports, insurance and medical notes / emergency contact details etc. You may wish to check your passport prior to even booking your holiday to ensure that you know where it is and to check that it is not due to expire.
