Flight Centre Tip 1:
Grab a Flight Centre Mastercard to take on your travels. There are NO international transactions fees. Makes spending a bit more tempting but who wants to think twice about those funky souvenirs!
Flight Centre Tip 2:
When you travel with a friend or companion, pack a few outfits in each other’s bag, if there are any baggage delays at least you will have your own clothes!
Flight Centre Tip 3:
Always make a copy or two of your passport to keep with your travel documents.
Flight Centre Tip 4:
Use maps.me for getting around a city or on that little drive to see your favourite place. You don’t need the internet as it can be used offline. It will offer driving routes or public transport alternatives to get you door to door
Flight Centre Tip 5:
Don’t be afraid to travel alone! There are so many options. Tours and cruises will mean you meet like-minded people along the way, its all about the experience and you will learn more about yourself!
Flight Centre Tip 6:
Learn the basics of the local language. Hello, goodbye, thank you, yes, no and where is the bathroom. The locals will love you for it.
Flight Centre Tip 7:
Get yourself a travel companion who is there for you no matter what! Get Covermore Insurance! With a 24 hr Travel GP, no matter what borders you may cross or cities you visit someone will answer your call with medical advice if needed.
Flight Centre Tip 8:
Always check the emergency number for the country you are in. It's not 111 in every country.
