Please Share Them and Help Us All!
We all have different travel styles...
What works for us may be different than what works for you.
Browse our site and the reader tips below... then add to them.
We started receiving your travel tips... you contacted us saying "You should tell your readers this..." ...or... "This is the credit card I carry..." ...or... "I pack this..."
The truth is, we can't think of everything. Some of your tips are for things we already do, cards we already carry, but we haven't mentioned those tips yet.
So to help us out, we're asking you to sit right down at your computer and Share Your Tips Here.
We've collected tips from anywhere we can get them...
Once when we were in Lahore, Pakistan we happened to meet an older traveler having tea with the director of the Kipling Museum. We were invited to join them. John was driving from England to the south of India. He had been making that trip once every two years since he retired. In the alternate years, he made the trip north from India back to England. We called him John the Harvard Vagabond. (Yes, he was from England, but he had gone to Harvard.... part of a great story for later.)
Among the words of advice that he gave us were...
- Always find your hotel by about 4 or 5 o’clock..... but for sure before dark.
The times we’ve had the most problems finding a hotel were when we didn’t heed that advice. We never kept in touch with our teatime friend, but we have quoted him on many occasions when we’re driving down a lonely back road hoping a hotel would show up around the next bend.
- Always carry some food and water in the car.... you just never know.
- Always keep the gas tank more than half full. It’s just easier than worrying that you’ll never find another gas station in time.
- Always ask to see the room before you take it.
People are happy to accommodate this request and are not offended if you say that the room is not quite right and you would like to keep looking.
We read many travel magazines, and reader travel tips often give us the best ideas from the whole magazine. We have pages where you can write about your travel stories, share funny signs, and tell us about your recent travels, but we wanted a place for your travel tips.... and we're serious, we want you to share them!
Share Your Travel Tips
Your travel tips are just as important as ours... we can't think of everything. So please do share your travel tips with us and our readers.
