5 Reliable Tips On How To Overcome Travel Pitfalls

Travelling smooth and tranquil is the desire of every traveller or tourist. You do your possible best to ensure that all travel hiccups are dealt with before you leave. However, things do not always seem to go as planned sometimes. There are unforeseen circumstances that could throw a spanner into the wheels of your travel. Therefore, disrupting your plans to have a cheerful and charming travel experience. Despite this, Jovago.com, Africa’s No 1 hotel booking portal says that there are ways to turn the table around and have a rocking travel experience despite these hiccups. Here are 5 ideas to help you when you overcome such problems.

  • When your car breaks down

Your car breaking down in the middle of no-where could botch your travel plans. It will be lamentation galore if you are driving with your family for a weekend getaway in Calabar from Lagos and your car develops a major fault. What will you do? There is no need to panic. The first thing you should do is to get the car off the road.

With the car of the road and at a safe place, you can beckon at someone to help you get a mechanic. As the mechanic is working on the vehicle, have a taste of a popular local snack or when your car has been fixed, you can drive to one of those ‘mama put’ restaurants to have a taste of their cuisine.

  • Lost travel documents

Amidst thousands of luggage, you could not find yours. You become hysterical because your travel documents are well-packed in the luggage. Passport, Visa and other important documents are gone with the luggage.

If you have taken out insurance on the travel documents, place a call to the insurance company informing them that you have lost them. They will help you in processing a new one. In the interim, report to airport security that you have misplaced your travel documents. They may help you locate your luggage.

  • Booking accommodation

  • Misplace your wallet

Losing your wallet may leave a traveller quite disoriented and confused. This is because without money you will be stranded during your travels. It is either you stay locked in your hotel throughout the duration of your travel or you find a way to get money.

If you have a significant other that can send you some money, do not hesitate to call them so that they can send you some cash.

  • No Internet

The internet now plays an important role in the life of an average individual. With internet connectivity you can access news and social media on your phones. Hence, having internet is non-negotiable for some traveller.

But if there is no internet access where you travelled to, what will you do? Will you leave your amazing travel for home or look for a way to make your travel more interesting?

When there is no internet at your destination, they are actually helping you. Internet addiction will take your mind off the essence of your travel. It is worthwhile not to make an issue out of the absent of internet and enmesh yourself in the ambiance of your destination.
