If you think you are too good of a traveler to make silly travel mistakes - think again!

Even the best of travelers are bound to make some errors while travelling *cough Columbus cough* but we’ve got your back!

Here are a few blunders that you should avoid!
  1. Don’t exchange money at the airport If you want to pay crazy exchange rates, then be my guest. But if you’re economical (read sensible) then use an ATM or a good-rate exchange kiosk at your destination.

  2. Don’t keep all your money in the same place If you keep all your eggs in the same basket, they’re sure to break! Divide and store!

  7. Don’t have an overambitious itinerary Planning to see the whole country in one visit will make you feel unaccomplished. Be flexible and don’t be afraid to change plans.
