Here are 10 big mistakes passengers make.

Overpacking: Bringing too much luggage not only makes traveling more cumbersome but can also lead to additional baggage fees.

Not Checking Passport Validity: Some countries require your passport to be valid for six months beyond your date of travel.

Ignoring Visa Requirements: Not researching visa requirements for your destination can lead to a rude awakening at the border.

Neglecting to Inform Your Bank of Travel Plans: If your bank suddenly notices foreign transactions without prior warning, it might freeze your account for suspicious activity.

Failing to Check Flight Status: Flights can be delayed or canceled. Checking your flight status before heading to the airport can save you unnecessary waiting times.

Relying Solely on Credit Cards: While credit cards are widely accepted, some places still prefer cash.

Not Investing in Travel Insurance: Travel insurance can be a lifesaver in case of medical emergencies, trip cancellations, or lost luggage.

Ignoring Local Customs and Etiquette: Failing to research and respect local customs can lead to uncomfortable situations or even legal trouble.

Forgetting to Check Roaming Charges: Using your phone as usual can lead to exorbitant roaming charges.

Underestimating Transportation Times: Not allowing enough time for airport security, traffic to and from the airport, or connections can lead to missed flights and added stress.
