It is significant for anyone to enjoy a trip whether taking cheap airline tickets for business or for leisure. However, the constant qualms about documents that need to be carried literally kills the fun of vacations. Packed with indispensable information and tips, this article offers an insight into the essential travel documents required to reduce gratuitous issues that one might encounter because of incomplete documentation.

Passport

Britons contemplating a business or holiday trip abroad should always carry a properly signed and stamped, valid passport. It is highly advisable to make sure that the passport is valid for 6 months after the intended trip and also there are two blank pages to allow entry and departure endorsements.

Visa

For travellers, it is imperative to know that the method of obtaining a visa and the designated time for the application widely varies for different countries. This makes it all the more important for travellers to contact the relevant embassies to obtain the necessary visa information.

Health

It is essential to consult a doctor for any recommended inoculations and vaccinations or medications ahead of travelling. It is evenly important to be careful of not carrying any loose or banned medicine.

Travel Insurance

Tourists often browse through websites to look for lowest airline tickets but tend to forget buying travel insurance. However, it is wise to purchase the right travel insurance offering 24 hour emergency service and personal liability cover for backpackers, families and business executives. Adventurers planning to undertake venturesome activities on vacations should make sure of getting some extra cover.

For US travel – ESTA

It is imperative for travellers taking US flights’ air tickets under the Visa Waiver Programme to provide their details online at least 72 hours prior to travel. This system is widely known as ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorisation), which is mandatory for entry in the country. ESTA is usually valid for two years or the validity of the traveller's passport. Travellers needing more information can visit the official ESTA website at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/.

Quick Tips

• It is important to make two copies of important documents such as: airline tickets, driver’s license, passport, visas, medical documents and prescriptions. Leave a copy of itinerary and relevant documents with family or friends back home and carry the other.

• For Britons travelling abroad it is essential to carry a valid passport with proper visa, if required. Travellers can check entry requirements with the relevant embassy. Also it is vital to fill the emergency contact information page of the passport to avoid any untoward incident.

• It is advisable to contact the relevant embassy at the earliest opportunity for most up-to-date visa information.

• It is widely recommended to the Britons planning a trip abroad to check out the Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO) website at www.fco.gov.uk/ to check out the relevant entry requirements.

• Checking out with a doctor to find out about vaccinations prior to travelling is essential. Also one should carry enough medications to last the trip.
