Travel is a rewarding experience, particularly when it’s to someplace truly exotic. And since there is a first time for everything, every traveler has to start somewhere i.e. go on their first big trip to a faraway destination. It’s a daunting task to say the least, but even the most cautious and inexperienced adventurer can master the art of extended travel.

With that said, we know everyone appreciates some good advice whenever possible. To this end, consider these three things every first-time world traveler should consider:

Renter’s Insurance

Extended travel puts your apartment back home at risk. In fact, many would-be burglars like to scour social media to find posts on international travel plans. This informs the criminal of which apartment to target. But there’s an easy and affordable way to buy yourself peace of mind when you’re on the road. And you don’t need to stop bragging on social media during your epic trips.

Renter’s insurance will allow you to leave your stuff behind without a worry. It’s affordable, responsible and it’ll save you in an emergency. And it’s easy to get online quotes for renters insurance to find the best prices. That way in the event your belongings are stolen – or even if they are damaged due to a fire started by your downstairs neighbor or an overflowing bathtub in the unit above yours.

Travel Documents

The internet is full of horror stories concerning travel documents. Passengers are denied boarding for international trips when they haven’t procured the right visas or medical records. The lesson — Always do a little research to find out which documents you need to bring with you for your trip.

Here’s an example. Many Americans are shocked to find out that a visa is required for a visit to China. The visa must be processed at a Chinese consulate office, and it takes up to four days to process. However, China also offers passengers a 72-hour visa-free transit. However, you’ll have to qualify. You must fly in and out of an approved airport in transit for a stay of three days or less. This means you have to fly from country A to country B (China) and on to country C. You could fly from Vancouver to Beijing to Seattle, but you’re not qualified flying from Seattle to Beijing to Los Angeles.

Some countries require proof of vaccinations while others need your passport to be valid for at least six months beyond your stay. Airlines expect you to know the requirements and will deny you boarding if you do not meet them.

Local Customs and Expectations

It goes without saying that you’ll experience a different way of life by visiting different cultures. But you should always check with reliable sources on the internet about local customs and expectations. For example, hiking in North America is an exercise in fresh air, tranquility, and solitude, whereas hiking across the Zanzibar archipelago a lesson in exotic getaways with a touch of history interwoven throughout.

Not understanding local cultures could also land you in trouble. For example, spitting is illegal in Singapore. You could find yourself in hot water with the locals and the police for doing something you thought to be innocent. The U.S. Department of State has great breakdowns of unexpected local laws and customs to keep you informed the next time you leave the country. Obey and respect these guidelines to have a trouble-free visit.
