Filipinos are among Asia’s top travellers, according to a 2016 survey by Visa, reporting a 65% increase in international travel for Filipino households. If you are planning the trip of a lifetime, then it is essential that you ask yourself the following questions to ensure that you are fully prepared.

Do you have travel insurance?
More and more Filipino travelers are purchasing travel insurance these days. This is definitely a wise decision. Baggage mishandling, robberies, and even becoming stranded overseas – these are all frequent occurrences, but travel insurance can protect you while you are overseas. It is always best to be protected when you are in an unfamiliar country.

Is your first aid up to scratch?
When planning a traveling adventure, it is always best to be prepared for every possibility. If your adventure is going to be including exciting activities, such as rock climbing or exploring the natural environment, it is always a good idea to make sure that you are up to scratch on your first aid training, should any accidents occur and nobody is around to help.

Have you planned the most effective journey?
When it comes to travelling to different continents, it is important that you have planned out everything properly. This includes making sure that you have planned the most efficient routes between each destination. By taking a look online, you will see that there are plenty of resources that will assist you in doing this. If all else fails, a world map can help too, when it comes to planning destinations.

Have an emergency fund available
This one is very important. When traveling, there is no telling what situation may arise. If you want to make sure that you are fully prepared, it is always a good idea to make sure that you have access to emergency funds, should you need them. You can keep these in an online account, or even a bank account that you are able to use abroad.

Traveling to different destinations around the world is the perfect way to create memories that will last a lifetime. By following these tips, you will be able to make sure that you are prepared for anything that life throws your way, whilst you are experiencing all that the world has to offer and  as many different cultures as possible.
