A few things to prepare:
- Take copies of your passports, visa and insurance and leave a copy at home with a family member or friend.
- Know the exchange rate of where you are travelling to and what to expect. If you know what the local currency is, it can save a lot of maths and processing once you arrive. You can also take a conversion list. For example, write on a piece of paper what $10, $20, $50 and $100 converts to in the local currency - you can then refer to this when out shopping or paying for things.
