You don't have to empty your bank account to go on vacation. You just have to anticipate to avoid unnecessary expenses. Here are our great tips on what you shouldn't do when you go on holiday:


1. Not checking your credit card charges abroad

Your credit card may subject you to additional bank charges when you make purchases or withdrawals abroad. To avoid this, check with your bank before you leave and sign up for a temporary option that will allow you to minimize these extra charges. 

2. Not checking your telephone subscription abroad

Abroad, the price of a phone call can be very high and even more so for an internet connection from your smartphone. It is important to check with your mobile operator the conditions linked to your subscription abroad. The best thing to do is to take out an option for abroad just for the time of your trip. This will avoid overbilling.

3. Paying for your tickets to museums, shows, outings

If you buy your leisure tickets on the spot, the prices are often expensive. Take the reflex to go to the online cultural platforms to book your ticket online and benefit from promotions and coupons. This will also save you time!

4. Not taking out insurance 

It's better to prepare for the worst than to regret it later. Be far-sighted with insurance. Especially health insurance. If you are injured during your trip, hospitalization costs can be very expensive, depending on the country. The same goes for travel insurance, which is necessary to protect you from any unforeseen events (in case of cancellation for example).

5. Losing your passport

A silly mistake that can happen to anyone... Remember to make photocopies of your passport and put them in different places. In case of theft or loss, this will save you time at the consulate, which will issue one more easily thanks to your number.

6. Taking too many things

Check with your travel company in advance to find out what hold and carry-on baggage is allowed and what the maximum weight is. If you do not comply with these limits, you may be charged a hefty baggage surcharge. Be sure to check this information for the outward and return journeys, which can sometimes differ. Anticipate the fact that you may leave heavier with a few souvenir gifts.

7. Not preparing a budget

Planning your budget in advance will allow you to leave more serene. With an idea in mind, you'll be able to save and set aside enough to pay for transportation and on-site expenses. This will prevent you from regretting the expenses when you get home or from limiting yourself too much and not taking advantage of them. 

8. Buying without comparing

Don't throw yourself on the first plane ticket you find. The price of a trip can vary greatly depending on the schedule, the travel company, the airport... We strongly recommend that you compare prices on a price comparison website. Jetcost compares for you free of charge all the prices of flights so take advantage of it!
