Visa requirements vary depending upon your nationality and the country of destination. Some countries are visa-free meaning that you can visit without acquiring a  visa. Other countries provide visas at the airport. In such cases, you need to know the cost of the Visa and which currency is accepted as  payment. Lastly, some countries require that you get a visa in advance. Make sure that you do a bit of research in advance to make sure that you're not stuck in an uncomfortable situation.

If you use a credit or debit card while traveling, the option to use your "home" currency will be offered. Choose the local currency instead. The reason is that you will be charged an invisible fee when using a cash machine abroad if you choose your home currency.

Occasionally items get damaged or stolen during transit. Make sure to pack all valuables and electronics in your carry-on or a backpack for safekeeping. It is also a good idea to pack a set of clothes and toiletries in your carry-on luggage. In the event that your luggage doesn't reach your destination on time, you can still freshen up while you wait for it.
