A great way to decide where to go is to start with a place you have never been before! Why not go for a place off the map and different. Or decide based on what scenery you enjoy most. Mountains or beach, sea or land, desert or deserted island? If you need some inspiration to decide, consult our travel guides and maps page to start a search for your next destination!

Regardless where you are traveling to, you can generally find anything you will need so don’t stress and end up overpacking. A good rule of thumb is to pack your bag based on what you know you will use, not what you think you might need. Pack clothing in outfits, not in single pieces. Take shoes for specific occasions as to not take too many pairs. This will cut down on the weight of your luggage. The most important items to remember are your passport, a second form of photo ID, and either cash, a debit card, or both just to be safe.
If your luggage is lost in transit, contact the airline you’re flown with directly as soon as you can. If you cannot call, every terminal should have a specific office to do this in person and they will help to start locating your luggage. To avoid this dilemma along with an ID tag, a great habit to get into while traveling is to put something distinct on your bag, like a ribbon for example, to help identify which is yours. In the case of your luggage getting lost, something distinct for the airline to look out for will help find the bag faster and an ID tag will make it easier to contact you when the bag is found.
