Seize the moment

is probably the mantra of anyone who has ever been bitten by the travel bug. There’s something liberating about jetting off to an exciting destination and seeing sights you’ve never seen before. And, when it comes down to it, we’d rather have memorable moments than a long list of ‘what ifs’ anyway … how about you?

Top Tips

There’s a lot of hype around travel these days and how it's good for the soul … and you’ll surely know a few people that have remarkable stories to tell from their last family getaway. The truth is, you can learn a lot from well-traveled people, which is why, for this weeks dose of terrific travel advice, we thought we’d round up a few great tips from them.

Elephants Travel Advice

  • If you’d like to travel extensively in the future, it wouldn’t hurt to join a frequent flyer programme. Even if it helps you save on something small, it’s still saving … and you can rather spend any additional money you have on souvenirs for the family back home.

  • It’s also a good idea to get travel insurance, especially if you’re planning on travelling overseas. It just gives you added peace of mind, so you can concentrate on making memories with your family.

  • Embrace different perspectives. You’re likely to encounter people that have different opinions and views to you, so keep an open mind when in another country, and be open to new experiences.

  • Be sure to backup all your important documents by taking pics of them and then emailing those pics to yourself. This ensures that no matter what happens, you’ll have them on hand.

  • Get advice - this is especially important if you’re travelling to a country you've never been to before. It definitely doesn’t hurt to get info from an agency or tour operator in that country.
