They say a picture’s worth a thousand words and that’s certainly the case when it comes to infographics. It’s often a lot easier to present information in the form of an image and this usually makes us more likely to remember it too. Therefore it makes sense that one of the best ways to present travel advice is in the form of a handy, easily digestible picture.
There are great resources all over the web that can help you with various stages of your next holiday, but here are four travel infographics for 2017 that we found particularly useful.
Choosing The Right Bag
Airlines can charge a lot of money these days for storing your luggage in the plane’s hold, leading many travellers to opt to just take a carry-on if possible. This great infographic from outdoor specialists REI tells you how to choose the right backpack depending on what you need it for, how to pack it to make the most of the space and what you should fill it with before you head off on your trip. It’s aimed at backpackers, but a lot of the principles can also be applied to choosing a travel bag and heading off on a European city break.
Keeping Your Money Safe
Travelling abroad can often mean carrying large amounts of foreign currency with you and this can make you feel uneasy when walking around a strange city. There are many ways to relieve this worry though and prevent any money-related issues from ruining your holiday. This useful infographic from Sainsbury’s Bank tells you the various options available when taking money abroad and how to keep it and your other valuables safe whilst abroad.
Road Tripping Abroad
One of the best ways to explore a new destination is to hire a car and set off on the open road. Not only does this give you the freedom to go where you want and when you want, you may also be able to save some money when compared to transfers and transportation costs. One issue, however, is that driving in a foreign country is never the same as driving at home. There’s more to getting behind the wheel abroad than simply knowing which side of the road to be on and thankfully VroomVroomVroom.com have got you covered with this infographic.
How Do You Solve A Problem Like Gratuities?
From road tripping to tipping on the road, and nothing has the power to make you feel more embarrassed than not knowing the etiquette for tipping in your holiday destination. Assuming you know who you should be tipping, there’s the issue of how much you should give them or whether it’s customary to do so at all. Many countries have different unwritten rules for different situations and this infographic from the Money Shop should help to make things a lot clearer and ensure you avoid any faux pas.
