Booking

Skyscanner : People always want the cheapest flights going which is so hard to find without ramping up the price of them because of “cookies” on your laptop or phones. Skyscanner is one of the best apps and websites I have found as they will give you the cheapest and quickest flight that is available.

Booking Dot Com : I am avid user of this website, I use it when I am in Ireland or abroad as you can book the hotel etc right there and then, and most of them you don’t even have to pay right away. They also offer a free cancellation service on some of them before a certain date.

Hostel World : My boyfriend uses this website a lot. If you are travelling on a budget and cannot afford a hotel, this is the website if you. You can also just pay a deposit when booking a hostel here – which is amazing also.

Packing 

Roll your clothes : I hate seeing people that just “fold” they’re clothes and then complain that there’s not enough room. If you roll them, you will have a lot of space left for whatever you need to bring. Rolling is the new folding!

Anything over 100ml : Anything that is over 100ml, you need to fit into your hold all bag if you are bringing one or else it won’t be able to come. Rules with every airline states that anything over 100ml won’t be allowed in your carry-on and all liquids in the carry-on must be in a clear plastic bag and only allowed to bring 1 litre worth of liquids.

Valuables : Do not pack anything that is valuable in your hold all bag as there is a chance that the airline could lose it. Always pack money, laptops, cameras etc into your carry-on as that way you know it’s safe and always going to be with you.

Weighing Luggage : You need to check your airlines weight limit as they can be different. A few days before, weigh your luggage and then weigh it again when you’re sure you have everything you need in them. You need to weigh your carry-on and hold all bag.

Changing Currency : Changing currency can be a pain in the ass as you don’t know who or where has the best exchange rate. You are better off to go to a post office or credit union as neither of these charge a conversion rate.

When You Get There

Map : No matter where you go, you should get a local map as it will be a godsend. Even if you pick one up before you go in a shop, you will not regret it.

Cash : No matter where you go, do not carry all of your cash around with you 24/7 as you are just asking to be robbed. Bring enough money with you for the day that’s in it and then store the rest in the safe in your room.
