Travel Tips 

Travel is full of pitfalls, a trip requires careful planning So here I can suggest some useful travel tips that will help them to at least get rid of travel related stress or minimize it to guarantee a smooth trip by planning thoroughly and Here's how to make all the right moves so as to have a stress free travel. Listed below are important steps to prepare for a safe & 
comfortable trip anywhere & anytime

(1) Always ensure the most comfortable flight & travel options so travel partner choice is really important. Beware of any Travel Alerts and Warnings for your Destination like Weather conditions, civil unrest,any other possible dangerous conditions etc. before undertaking travel. Booking choice of seat like isle or window as per preference and meals choices as per your appetite is always a best practice to follow for any traveler.

(2) One must keep important travel documents like Passport & Tickets really handy preferably in a safe folder. Try to keep electronic copies of your travel documents which can also be very helpful in case of emergency.

(3) Pack light & to minimize clothes try to match all of the pants/bottoms you are taking with all of the tops,carry a minimum number of valuables and use high quality stroller bags as they are easy to handle anytime & anywhere. Make sure the bag dimensions are as per allowed cabin baggage sizes.

(4) Use covered luggage tags to avoid casual observation of your identity and nationality and avoid packing IDs, tickets and other important documents in backpacks.

(5) Wear comfortable and light clothes during the travel so you are comfortable during the flight and sit or sleep in any posture as required. Also ensure that there are couple of pockets in your clothes for keeping passport or boarding passes. Do keep eye shades to get rid of the lights during the flight and catch some sleep. Using ear phones with light music or ear plugs also helps to reduce the stressful engine noise of the aircraft.

(6) Everybody misses their family during travel and its not always possible for your family to accompany you for every trip so using advanced apps like Skype or video chatting really helps to connect with your near & dear ones any time and this is one of the best stress busters.

(7) Always keep a travel first aid kit along with you including commonly used medicines which can help in case of any minor problem during the travel.

(8) Never wear new shoes or your new jacket etc.as it may be initially tight. Instead use easy to remove footwear so it can be removed or worn as and when required.

(9) Learn the small courtesy phrases of local language as it really helps during travel within the local country and the fans love this experience of hearing anything from foreign players in their local language. Learn about local laws and customs of the country so you do not offend anyone unknowingly.

(10) Always carry at least one other form of entertainment with you could be an iPod or iPad or music player. Another choice is keeping a book or two for light reading during the flight. This may also be good to keep in case one does not find anything new or interesting in the in-flight entertainment system.

(11) Always carry hat, sunshades or goggles and wear sunscreen as hot climatic conditions can cause sunburn.

(12) Keep no coins or metallic objects during the travel so as to have an easy pass through from all security screenings.Avoid keeping any gels, liquids or any inflammable object in the handbag as it can cause unnecessary problem during security screening and may have to be removed from the baggage.

(13) Try requesting for priority tagging to your luggage as that will help you get in less time as soon as the players clear the customs & Immigration & this helps to reduce their waiting time.

(14) Use a Digital watch which is easy to set every time and has at least two to three time zones with one set at GMT, one at local time of the country and one at the time of the home city of player so they can adjust to the time patterns and minimize effects of Jet lags for initial few days. 

(15) Avoid carrying too much cash and consider using traveler's checks or major credit cards instead and do not flash large amounts of money when paying a bill.Never carry your wallet in your back pocket.

(16) Before the flight have light meal if possible and avoid any alcoholic beverages as they could cause unrest. Also keep some snack bars or nuts in your handbag to have them anytime during the travel whenever you feel like having a snack.

(17) Do keep power back up devices or pocket battery chargers so that you can charge the mobile phones during the flight as anyways it would be in sleep or flight mode as due to hectic schedules it may not be easy to 

charge phones always at other times.

(18) Drink good amount of fluids like juices and water during the flight to keep your self hydrated and taking a short walk in the flight at least a couple of times always helps to keep one fit during the flight.

(19) Travel lounges are really a blessing for any traveler. One can take a quick shower or quick nap and have some light beverage to feel relaxed during the waiting time at airports. Also these lounges help a lot when someone needs to use the time between connecting flights to relax & unwind.

(20) Sparing sometime to find some exciting places to visit in the city that they are travelling to and then visiting these to unwind themselves of all the stress is also a must do activity.

I am sure if they follow these above tips they can make their travel really stress free
