Tips for the International Traveler

  • Visit the U.S. State Department to obtain important safety information on the countries you are visiting prior to departure.
  • Remember to register with Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (S.T.E.P.)
  • Nervous about what to pack? Visit TSA to see an up to date list of what is acceptable onboard and in your checked luggage!
  • Take two different types (Visa, MasterCard, etc.) credit cards and travelers checks. Note that some Debit Cards are not accepted worldwide.
  • Leave a photocopy of your passport at home or with a trusted person. Better yet, if you can, email a copy to yourself for ease of retrieval. Remember to safeguard your passwords!
  • Check and double check to be sure you’ll have enough money while away. Note that taxes and tariffs can rapidly eat away excess funds...research beforehand!
  • Keep foreign currency on hand during your trip. Avoid curbside money changers. Carry new bills and use any Rent transportation in the US to get lower rates.
  • Many international ATMs do not accept more than 4 digits and money will be dispensed in the local currency. Check with your bank for fees and rates.
  • Make sure the hotel guarantees their rates in US currency. Also verify that this is true for any packages you purchase.
  • Notify your cell phone provider before you depart! Some countries require special access for data and telephone access. Purchase one or more prepaid calling cards if necessary.
  • Travel with hand sanitizer, antibacterial wipes, a foldable face mask or handkerchief and any necessary medicines in your carry on!
  • Respect local culture and traditions. Research foods, liquor laws, and other culturally significant items of interest before departing, but don't assume everyone you meet will fall into your researched categories!
