Q&A – Practical Travel Tips

Q. Whats the best way to take my money overseas?

A. A multi-currency Cash Passport is the safest way, allowing you to load up to nine different currencies. It can be used as a debit card and to withdraw cash from ATM machines.

Q. Where’s the best place to sit – window or aisle?

A. On a long journey we recommend an aisle seat in the middle block. It means you won’t have people clambering over you and you can get out whenever you need to.

Q. What’s the best travel app?

A. TripCase. This App downloads your flight itinerary and updates you with any schedule changes or flight delays. It also allows you to share your trip with others.

Q. Why do I need travel insurance?

A. Because the unexpected doesn’t take a holiday. Unforeseen medical bills overseas can cost thousands of dollars. You are also covered from the day you take out travel insurance.

Q. Why use a travel agent vs booking online?

A. Because we are people you have a direct line to. We listen and remember you and are there to help if anything goes wrong. We also have personal travel experience and so do our hundreds of clients.

Q. What is the best way to help your body cope with long flights?

A. Drink lots of water and limit alcohol before and during your flight. Eat small meals, take jet-lag pills and use saline nose spray to help with dryness. Use hand and face moisturiser and lip balm to help keep you hydrated.
