Our 10 Best Travel Tips

When it comes to travel, we at InterContinental are your experts. Sometimes it can be a little overwhelming to remember the best way to travel and you often come home with regrets. That’s why we’re giving you our best travel tips to ensure you come home from your holiday feeling refreshed, rested and without a single regret!


Here’s our handy guide with 15 of our favorite travel tips

1. Make a List, Check it Twice

There’s nothing worse than getting to your holiday destination and realising you forgot an essential item. Make a list and cross off each item as you pack it to ensure you start your holiday off with everything you need.

2. Wear Sunscreen

You have most likely seen those holiday goers walking around the beach, burnt to a crisp. Don’t be complacent about wearing sunscreen or you might find yourself being severely burnt and spending the rest of your trip in pain.

3. Take along a Travel First Aid Kit

You never know when a headache will strike or something more serious. Take paracetamol everywhere you go along with a small travel first aid kit, just in case you need it.

4. Pack Swimmers, Even if You Don’t Plan on Using Them

It’s not much fun when suddenly it’s a perfect time to hit the beach, but you don’t have any bathers. Buying new ones can get costly and is time consuming. Pack your swimmers, regardless of the weather forecast.


5. Use a Kindle

Books are cumbersome so swap it for a kindle where an endless amount of books awaits on you on one slim device.

6. Leave Room for Spontaneity

Plan, but don’t plan too much. Leave room for days where you can just go with the flow and see where your holiday takes you.

7. Wear Comfortable Shoes

Almost all good holidays require plenty of walking. Travelling on foot really allows you to take in sites and experience what the city has to offer you. Blisters will hold you back, so make sure you’re wearing comfortable shoes.

8. Try Something New

Jump into a hot air balloon, go snorkelling or have a close encounter with an animal at the zoo. New experiences create lifelong memories.


9. Invest in a Decent Backpack

Keeping your hands free can be handy when you’re travelling so make sure you’ve got a decent backpack as you never know when you’ll make a few great purchases while shopping, or when you’ll need your picnic blanket.
