(BPT) - Traveling families never stop thinking about their next adventure. Since summer is over, now is the perfect time to take advantage of lower prices and visit relatives you don't see often. Make your trip as enjoyable as possible with these five tips to stay safe and enjoy your trip to the fullest.
Get the best prices. Book your flight midweek (between Tuesday and Thursday) because those are the times you can snag the best deals. The money you save on airfare can be applied to fun outings once you arrive at your destination!
Take inventory of your clothing. If you're traveling with the family, have everyone bring a list of things they packed in their luggage so it's easier to repack and you won't leave anything behind when it's time to head home. Packing light clothing that can translate easily from day to night outfits will save you time and leave more room in your luggage.
Stay connected. Many airports, hotels and restaurants offer their customers free WiFi, but you can't always depend on it, especially when traveling to a foreign destination. International coverage plans solve this problem easily. Telcel(MR) launched its new no-contract Extended Nation plan, which includes calls to national and international cell phones or land lines, and the ability to send text messages and browse the web at 4G LTE* speed in the US and Mexico+, with no additional roaming charges, no matter where you are. Whether you're exploring the city or hanging out on the beach, you can always stay in touch with your loved ones.
Avoid getting lost. Whether you have a vehicle to get around or are simply walking within a new city, create a pin as a reference point on Google Maps so you can easily find your way to your car and hotel. It's much easier to get back to a location if you have a clear vision of potential routes.
Talk to locals. Aside from visiting popular landmarks, ask local residents about restaurants, coffee shops, stores, bodegas and other places to visit. You'll be able to find delicious, authentic food and more affordable stores that aren't included in the usual travel guides.
Last but not least, enjoy every moment of your trip by leaving all of your worries behind - go ahead, you deserve it!
