A holiday is the best way to relax, rejuvenate and come back home ready to seize the day. But don’t let 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 CPP Group’s Travel Safe Advantage package 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, consider the Travel Safe Advantage package, which is available through Bajaj Finserv. If you lose your credit or debit card, you can get it blocked with just one phone call to 1800-419-4000, a toll-free number, within 24 hours. In addition, if you are stranded, 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 Travel Safe Advantage package also offers roadside assistance across 500 locations in India. You can avail all this for just a sum of Rs.699 annually.

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 have 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.

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 to a holiday.

Home security

Your vacation won’t be as much fun if you’re constantly worrying about your home’s security. So, make sure you take the time to secure all your windows and double-lock your main door before you leave. There have been cases of fire breaking out in empty houses too, so ensure that the gas knob and all power switches are turned off.

Check traffic

Before you step out of the house, make sure you check the traffic on the route to the airport or the train station on your smartphone and plan your departure accordingly. You don’t want to be stuck in traffic and risk missing your flight or train. Also, pre-book your taxi so that you don’t waste precious time looking for one at the last minute.

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!
