    Is it traveling season for you? If so then be sure to check out this great page that lists the "80 Things We We Wish Knew Before Traveling," by Matador. Whether you're flying to another state or country, be sure to read these before you head to the airport.

    HINDSIGHT IS 20/20, right? Well, foresight can be near to it when you have the expertise of some seriously savvy travelers at your fingertips. Like the Matador team. If you’re starting out on your first trip, this is for you. Hell, even if it’s your 20th trip, this is for you too. I know I learned a lot putting it together.

    On preparing for your trip

    1. Print your entire itinerary and flight tickets/confirmations. Store these with your passports. You can’t always rely on Internet access or electricity to pull this info off your phone or laptop.

    2. Keep a copy of your passport and never have all of your forms of identification or access to cash (ATM/credit cards) in the same bag. If that one gets lost or stolen, you are SOL.

    3. Check in with friends and family from time to time, especially when traveling alone. It’s a good idea for someone to always know where your next movements are, just in case.

    4. Always be patient and polite. This person could be the difference between you getting the flight that night or having to spend it on the airport floor.

    Travel in low season. In places like Thailand and India, food and accommodation can be half the price.

    Bad: “Can you get me on the next flight out – I can’t miss my connection to Europe!”

    Good: “Excuse me, Barbara. I totally understand you guys are slammed right now, but if you have one minute, I’d really appreciate if you could try to get me on that next flight out, otherwise I’ll miss my international connection. I really appreciate it. Thank you so much.”
