Travelling in Europe is a spectacular vacation experience. But, for the unprepared, their European tour could just turn out to be more of a nightmare than the dream they imagined.
Before you embark on any of the international holiday packages from Mumbai or Beijing, there are certain things that you simply must ensure have been taken care of. Luckily, we’re giving you a convenient checklist so you can have a hassle-free travel experience in Europe.

Check Your Travel Documents:
Make sure to check all your travel documents. This includes checking the expiration date on your passport, confirmations for hotel stays, the terms of your travel insurance policy, visas, etc. You must carry copies of all your necessary travel documents with you as well as have scanned copies online that you can access from wherever you are. The list of travel documents also includes a few other items when you plan a European tour. Students must take an International Student Identity Card (ISIC). And if you plan to rent a car during any part of your journey, you will need to apply for and obtain an international driving license. Make sure you have all your documents and each one is updated satisfactorily before you board your flight.

Gather All The Things You Need:
While booking an international trip of any kind, you must buy plastic money, calling and data services and local information apps too. Make sure you have all these things in working order before you enter a foreign country. While you may not need to make calls or use data services while you travel, you must be equipped to contact locals and family back home nonetheless. While travelling to Europe, take shopping indulgences into account and carry a prepaid forex card. This will help you travel well and make cost-effective choices.

Learn The Basics Of The Local Language And Social Etiquette:
When you set off on an international holiday, you enter a completely different world. While it’s true that English is an international language, there are many places even in Europe where it’s difficult to get by just with English. That’s why your travel checklist must include learning a few introductory phrases in the local language. If you have any medical condition or food allergy, you must be able to convey the same in the local language. If you are lost, you must be able to reach your hotel. You must also avoid any verbal or non-verbal communication that can be considered offensive to the locals. Remember to always carry your flight and hotel details along with a list of valuables, guidebooks, and emergency numbers wherever you go.
