Well, it’s my pleasure to welcome to my blog. You will know some important but common travel tips about air, sea and road travel of domestic and international both. Later stage we will discuss about the popular and potential sites of diff. countries especially Bangladesh travel tips.
Ø You should have some basic information e.g. weather, culture and costume etc. about the destination from related site like tourism authority of concern country, your friend and travel agent etc.
Ø Contact with embassy or consulate general office or any other visa issuing authority of that concern country as they are the right authority and having all latest update. Never call the airlines of that concern country or your travel agency or any other 3rd party as they always depend on other party for information.
Ø Now you may go for reservation of your travel means like air, sea or road. If you are a member of frequent flyer program (FFP) e.g. Al Fursan of Saudi Arabian airlines then tell the reservation staff that you are a FFP member at the beginning. You should provide your family name first then your first name and other named as per passport, your cell phone of city from where you will board. If you are a holiday maker then you should provide your every hotel or other residential no. Never forget to get your PNR (Passenger Name Record) or booking reference or computer number. If you make booking from your travel agent then there will be two (02) PNR. One (01) from travel agency and other one (01) from air lines. If you follow up about your reservation with travel agency then tell them travel agency PNR and if you follow up with air lines directly then tell them air lines PNR.
Ø Always cross check directly with concern airlines about your reservation before and after purchase the ticket, date change, ticket refund, no show, re-routing, baggage allowance and airport reporting policy. Sometime travel agencies are not reliable. Always purchase your ticket before the time limit to purchase. Now a day, time limit is not extendable but if seat (might be on same class or not) are available then cancel and re-book to get new time limit as you have create new PNR. If you book and purchase thru. Internet then read the rules very carefully. Specially refund, date change and no show policies etc.
Ø Remember at present every air lines maintain lots of class and fare for every single route. So, it is not wrathful to ask how much is the fare? Or to get the idea about fare. Fare is subject to change any time unless you purchase ticket (despite you book a seat).
Ø Keep a side your ticket, passport, hotel voucher and visa (if it is not stamped in your passport) in your hand carry. Don’t forget to weight your baggage at your home to avoid last minute hassle. Report at airport or seaport or bus or railway station within prescribed time. If you have any journey (air, sea or road) sicknesses then take some preliminary medicine with you and other precaution.
Ø Your boarding gate no. will be printed at your boarding card. If you are a connecting (if there is an airport involve between the departure and arrival airport) passenger then kindly be alert about the local time, keep your eyes on flight information display board sometimes flight schedule and boarding gate might get change. Try to reach to the boarding gate as soon as possible to avoid flight missing.
Ø Don’t be panic at all in case of any unexpected incident happened on board. Remember you the part of all other passenger so, kindly always follow all on board instructions.
Ø Upon arrival never stand up or try to collect your hand carry from overhead banker until the aircraft stand still as it is quite risky for you and others.
