A holiday is the best way to relax, rejuvenate and come back home ready to seize the day. But don’t let the wanderlust get the better of you. There are several things you need to watch out for before you take a much-needed break, including basics like checking your passport and tickets to making sure you have holiday insurance such as the Domestic Holiday Cover that protects you in case of an emergency. Here is a checklist to follow before you step out.

Get Holiday Insurance

To ensure that nothing comes in the way of you having a good time, you can consider opting for one of the suitable travel insurance cover offered under Pocket Insurance & Subscriptions. If you lose your credit or debit card, the plan allows you to block them all with just one phone call. In addition, if you are stranded while on the trip, you can claim hotel and travel assistance of up to Rs.50,000 in India, and Rs.1 lakh abroad. Moreover, if your car breaks down, the Domestic Holiday Cover also offers roadside assistance across 500 locations in India. You can avail all this for just Rs.699 annually.

Similar to the Domestic Holiday Cover, Pocket Insurance & Subscriptions include multiple useful plans such as Trek Cover, Pilgrimage Cover, Road Trip Cover, Leh-Ladakh Cover and others that you may choose from based on your specific needs. Applying for these plans is a hassle-free process as you just need to fill in the online application from and make the premium payment using any of the available online payment methods.

Check Your Travel Documents

Mixing up your travel dates is something that can happen to even the most meticulous person, especially if you have booked your tickets and hotel stay much in advance. So, recheck the dates closer to your date of departure. Make sure your passport is valid at the time you plan to go on holiday. Some airports require a minimum of six months before your passport expires, so be sure that you are well within the limit. Also, take extra copies of your passport, which will come in handy if you lose the original.

Check Luggage Allowance

It’s easy to get carried away with the excitement of a vacation and overpack. But you must check the luggage allowance mentioned by the airline on your ticket. If your luggage is over the limit, you will be left with no choice but to open your bag at the check-in counter and discard some of the luggage, which isn’t the best start for a holiday.

Ensure Security of Home

Your vacation won’t be as much fun if you’re constantly worrying about your home’s security.

Once you check all these boxes, you are good to go. You’re sure to have complete peace of mind when you’re on holiday and will be able to relax completely!
