5 Tips for Traveling Abroad

International travel tips: To get the best price, buy your airfare 176 days in advance for travel to a European destination and 160 days in advance to an Asia-Pacific destination. Register in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program to receive travel warnings, alerts, and other important information from the U.S. Embassy about your destination. Get your cash from a bank or ATM in the country you're visiting. Airport currency conversion typically results in poor exchange rates and high fees. Grab a business card from your hotel upon check-in. If you ever get lost, you have the name and address of your lodging that you can easily show to taxi drivers. Keep a small, light backpack with you on your flights to store electronics, jewelry, medications, toiletries, and a quick change of clothes in case your checked baggage gets lost.
