These pointers are really helpful whether you’re exploring a different country or roaming this beautiful green Isle of ours.
 
 
Before you set off
 
  • Look at our roaming 3MadeEasy to see what services are available.
  • Check that your passport is in date and have a secondary form of ID (Driver’s Licence/National Identity Card).
  • Let family and friends know your general plans for your trip.
  • Memorise at least 3 phone numbers and write them down on a piece of paper.
  • If travelling abroad check that there are no delays, this goes for your commute to the airport or port.
  • Take a screenshot of your boarding pass, better still print off a copy too.
  • Familiarise yourself with safety tips for your phone.
  • Buy and read a travel book with handy phrases in the local language, maps of the general area and public transport info.
  • To avoid overpacking, pack the night before or the morning of.
  • Leave the expensive jewellery at home too.
  • Final check – passport, ticket, money, charger, adapter and phone. Don’t forget to lock the house and check again.
 
And you’re off.
 
  • Travel light, no really, travel light. Less to carry, less to be concerned about and less wardrobe choice; you won't waste any precious holiday time on “deciding” what to wear. Leave the flashy and expensive jewellery at home Carry a small amount of cash and keep your credit/debit card separate.
  • Have a 30-40 minute stroll around your accommodation neighbourhood to get your bearings.
  • Have a business card with your accommodations address on it and on the back write down local emergency numbers, location of nearest ATM and banks and nearest hospital and doctor.
  • Leave your passport in a secure place and have your second piece of ID on you at all times. Get talking to the accommodation, restaurant or bar staff. They have great tourist tips 👍
  • Go where the locals go, not only will it be cheaper but you’ll get a more authentic experience.
  • Try a "hop-on hop-off" bus tour where available. It's the best and quickest way to check out the sights.
  • Take in a full day trip, group tour or excursion. It’s a great way to meet likeminded people.
