Must-Read: Plan Stress-Free Travel
Traveling is one of the great aspects of life. Heading over to a new area of the globe, seeing the sights that your friends back at home will be jealous of you for seeing, getting a new sense of knowledge, and trying to understand how a new culture is. And also, you know, relaxing like hell and getting a few days off from the stresses of work. But, that doesn’t mean that travel is all without its stress. The actual act of getting to another place in the world is one of the most headache-inducing everyday events you will undergo. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
So today we’re heading over to Men’s Health where they have a listing of ways to make your travel less stressful. Among their list of 21 tips that you need to read if you ever want to be stress-free when it comes to travel:
1. Talk To A Human
Your new travel mantra: human being. While it may seem cheaper and easier to book your flight on the Internet, remember that many Web sites pose as informational when they are, in fact, transactional—trying to push the sale. I’m not saying not to use the Internet; I’m just saying not to book your flight there first. Instead, quickly go online and find out which airlines service the route you want to take, then type in gethuman.com, which will tell you how to maneuver quickly through the customer-service tree of your chosen airlines. Now, pick up the phone.
Couldn’t agree any more. So head on over to the link about and check out the other 20 tips that Men’s Health has in order to make your travel way easier to handle, and then get on out there and see the goddamn world. It’s just waiting for you!
