If you travel to a foreign city, keep a lookout for people pretending to be police or law enforcement. Keep your passport on you at all times, and do not hand it over to anyone. If an officer or official asks you to come to their office, do so on foot. Never get into a car with a strange local.

Save money by making travel plans far ahead of time. There are many things you purchase for travel, most of them are cheaper, the earlier you buy them. Minimizing last-minute expenses can help your trip stretch further.

Don't forget to check your passports' expiration dates. Most countries have explicit rules regarding your passport. Even if it is still valid, if it expires soon, you may have problems. Usually this range is between three and six months, but some countries can require more, even up to a year.

Build a travel bin. You can waste a lot of time looking for items scattered about your house, like your shampoo and conditioner, power cords and pillow.

You should be aware of the insurance policies available from your credit card company and their particular policies involving foreign countries. You may not have to worry if you pay for a flight that winds up cancelled, for example. Having insurance can protect you from problems that may arise before or during your trip.

Jet lag is a common problem when traveling across time zones. It cannot be entirely avoided, but getting lots of sleep before your trip can definitely mitigate things. Also, you should try to sleep during your flight as much as possible.

A desert contains lots of interesting places to look at as well as animals most people never get to see in their lives. Deserts are a wonder of nature that should be experienced by anyone who wants to feel the vastness and variety of our world.

You can save yourself a little money while traveling abroad by avoiding the currency exchange process. Use a different method, instead. You can obtain foreign currency through a bank ATM.
