12 Uncommon Travel Tips to Know Before Planning Your Next Trip

Travelling to a new country is always an exciting adventure. But even after preparing for the best, things can go wrong. For the best travel experience, here are some uncommon travel trips that you can follow for your next journey: 

1. Carry Backup Clothes

Smart packing means preparing yourself for the worst and carrying a set of backup clothes is a useful bag packing tip for future travels. Keep your essentials and a set of extra clothes in your carry-on, so that if your bags go missing, you will have a backup plan in place.

2. Pack in Waterproof Backpacks

Whether you are planning to go for a hike or a trek, carrying a waterproof backpack for essential items, like power bank, toiletries, water bottle, charger, camera batteries, sanitizers, mask, etc., is a must to protect from bad weather. You can even use a backpack cover for an additional layer of protection to an ordinary bag. 

3. Invest in Protective Covers

Now this tip is more apt for people who travel with fragile things like cameras, tripods, drones, gimbals, etc. Buy some padded wraps or protective covers that you can use to protect these items.

You can wrap them around any fragile item and pack it in your backpack. Besides, they are safe, easy to handle, and not very expensive.

4. Carry a Basic First-aid Kit

Getting medical care for small wounds and minor accidents during travel can be challenging in some countries. Therefore, it is advisable to carry a mini first-aid kit with you. The first-aid kit must have an antibacterial cream, band-aids, pain killers, basic medicines for fever or cold, and ointments for wounds & bruises. Moreover, to avoid the financial burden resulting from unpredictable medical emergencies in a foreign land, you can avail international health insurance coverage. So whether you get accidentally hurt while paragliding or crossing a road, your international health insurance policy will cover your medical expenses.

5. Carry Multiple Payment Cards

International trips involve careful planning about several things, including payment methods. So, do not forget to carry at least two cards for making payments on an overseas trip. Also, diversify your payment card options. Remember that payment card networks like VISA, American Express, and Mastercard tends to be accepted by almost all countries. 

6. Learn Common Phrases of the Destination Country

Language plays a magnificent role in making your travel much smoother. Therefore, learn some common phrases of the place where you are travelling to easily communicate with the locals. You can learn to speak common words like hello, hi, goodbye, thank you in the native language of the destination instead of relying on Google or translation books.

7. Utilize Offline Google Maps

One of the best travel tips is to use Google maps offline. A hidden feature in the application allows you to access your maps without having an active data connection. To do so, zoom into the map area that you are interested in on your mobile or tablet and then type ‘OK maps’ in the search box. A pop-up will arise on your screen asking you to download the map. Download it and use it even when you do not have data connectivity.

8. Use Incognito Mode When Browsing

An incognito browsing mode does not save your search history, cookies, and cache memory. Hotel and flight booking websites usually store your browsing history. They use this information to raise the price of your searched flight/accommodation if you use the website again. Thus, we suggest you to clear your search history first and then turn on incognito mode when searching for hotels or flights. 

9. Use Free Public WiFi

Make use of free public wifi to use the internet abroad to avoid paying for expensive international data plans. You can stay connected with your family or friends, get your work done on the road or research the best place to munch while travelling in another country by using free public wifi networks.

10. Carry Smart Toiletries

Carry smart toiletries like pouches of shampoos, body lotions, and conditioners instead of bottles to save space on your luggage. Take eco-friendly baby wipes while travelling. They are the ultimate thing to refresh after a long-haul flight or city tour on public transport. Also, take extra pair of N95 masks and sanitizer with you.

11. Put a Mark on Your Bags

Luggage tags or prominent marks can be used for identifying your luggage. Whether you are travelling by train or flight, it will help you to track your bag at the baggage carousel.

12. Do Not Rely on Online Reviews Entirely

All 5-star reviews from people are not always genuine. Sometimes, it lacks details about the reviewer, are written in the same style or are even posted by the same person from different accounts. So, use common sense, research well and do not entirely rely on online reviews to make your bookings.


Travelling is supposed to be relaxing and rejuvenating. Do not let unwanted things to interrupt your holidays and so, buy travel insurance plan to be on the safer side. To avail discounts, book your tickets and accommodation online at least a month prior to the date of travelling.

Moreover, our ultimate unique travel tips will hopefully help you to schedule a perfect trip and have a great time on your adventure.
