Considering that the United States of America is a huge and well diverse country, you have to keep in mind that there is an endless thing to explore and places to discover. On the other hand, if you will stay there for a couple of weeks or months, you have to secure yourself the important things which you will be needed as you travel to the United States. Also, one of the most important things that traveler often overlooked is to check the facilities or businesses around the area in case unplanned things occur. In my case, I always check the Airports near me which is very convenient for traveler like me to find businesses around the airports.
So, lets now proceed with the topic, and below are the checklists for traveling to the United States of America.
Double-check your documents
One of the most important things to consider before traveling is to check your documents. This includes your passports check if it is up to date because once you find out that your passport is not valid, this will cause delayed or canceled trips. Another thing is the boarding pass, please secure it with you together with the hotel confirmation, etc. Make sure to keep those documents in one folder or any other file cases.
Secure your VISA
Some countries across the world don’t require a VISA to enter, but here in the United States, you have to secure your VISA which is also known as ESTA USA visa for you to legally enter the country. Without it, they will refuse you to enter and will bring you to serious trouble. So it is better to secure it ahead of time before your travel date to avoid inconvenience.
Be aware of your luggage limit
Before you travel please coordinate with your airlines the applicable size and weight limit of your luggage to avoid troubles before your travel date. Also, make sure what things are allowed and what is prohibited as you will see some passengers repacking their things at the airport. Just bring the needed things and necessities as you travel.
Book in advance
Make it a habit to book your accommodation in advance to lessen your worries and to get the best deals before you travel. There are lots of budget-friendly accommodations to book all over the country. All you have to do is to book in advance. On the other hand, if you have families or friends living there, you don’t have to worry about where to stay.
Make a good research
As I’ve said there’s a lot of things to know about the United States of America. So, Its good to collect information on the things about the USA or even on your specific destination so that you will have a smoother trip and maximize your travel experience.
Don’t forget your travel money
A week before your travel date is the best time to get the cheapest currency rates, please consider this also ahead of time because if you wish to do it on your exact travel date, you will probably get a much worse rate. Another option is for you to get an international travel card which is designed for traveling abroad.
