Travel Tip of the Week

Always carry duplicates of your travel documents.
Apart from atleast 3 paper photocopies, it would also be wise to have a soft copy stored in a portable device (pen drive, hard disk, laptop or even an iPad). This comes in useful when you need to e-mail a soft copy to someone. Remember to protect the scanned images by converting them to a PDF format and password protect them.

Especially, when travelling abroad, make sure to keep multiple paper copies of your passpost and visa, in separate places.
Just like with money, keep one copy in your Cabin baggage, another in your Check-in luggage, and yet another duplicate in your hand bag (or sling bag or waist pouch). These duplicate hard copies would come extremely handy, when you need to show a hard copy somewhere or even if God forbid, were you to misplace or lose documents and need to validate and your identity and stay in a foreign country.

    1. Should not be a problem. These are just tips; modify them as per your convenience 🙂 Although I would still suggest keeping a scanned copy in your email 🙂 Thanks for visiting 🙂
