Before heading away on holiday, many people make themselves a travel checklist. And yet, the checklist most people make will revolve around the things they need to put in their flight luggage, from currency to a toothbrush, and many people overlook the importance of getting their home and even their car ready to go away.
As such, things such as Gatwick parking are often left until the very last minute and, in turn, mistakes can be made in terms of choice of car park, and money can be wasted, as things such as car parking are likely to be more expensive at the last minute.
It is also worth putting a note in your checklist to check in online should your airline require this and to print out any documentation to ensure you are not charged admin fees once you reach the airport. Travel insurance is also a must, and getting this in plenty of time will also be important, as will knowing whether or not you will need any visas or paperwork to enter the country you are travelling to.
When it comes to sourcing currency, always try to look at rates in advance too. The majority of people will buy their currency at the last minute only to find that the rate they are offered is very average indeed. By keeping an eye on exchange rates, you will be able to get your currency when it is at the most favourable rate and in turn find that you have more to spend whilst you are away.
When it comes to parking at Gatwick, always be sure that you have chosen a car park that is both cheap and reputable and be sure you know how long any transfers to the airport are likely to take.
Taking the time to make a checklist of more than just the contents of your suitcase is likely to make the whole process of heading away far more enjoyable and far less costly to boot.
