Things to Carry on Your Person

Some of the things that you must need to jot down and remember when traveling:

* A passport, for all travel outside the U.S. and identification purposes
* Wallet
* Driver’s License
* Insurance cards for both your medical and automobile insurance
* Credit cards
* Travelers checks
* Coupons
* Airline, Cruise or Train tickets
* Itinerary with confirmation numbers and addresses and phone numbers of where you’ll be staying
* Travel brochures and maps
* Lots of crisp one-dollar bills for all those tipping opportunities
* A small amount of local currency for immediate use to hold you over until you can make it to a currency exchange, if you're planning foreign travel.

Are there any others that I missed?

For travel inside the US I

For travel inside the US I always carry these cards in addition to my Credit Cards and Drivers License:

  • National Park Pass (lets me visit all NP for one yearly fee)
  • AAA (car club card)

I always run out of one-dollar bills even though I usually remember to bring lots of them.

Instead of just the intiary numbers I bring a printout of the whole confirmation email (also for Car Rental). Sometimes I even bring the history of an email conversation to proof that I really got a certain upgrade or something.

Since I hold a visa, I also have to bring more extensive travel documents, but everyone else with a visa will know Wink.

I've scanned a lot of important documents and put them in the notebook part of my e-mail.  It's actually illegal to copy some things, like passports and drivers licences in some states.  Everyone does, though.

If I'm outside the US, I make copies of the title page of my passport, and put one in every bag I'm carrying.  If my passport is stolen, I should have a copy somewhere.  Also, if I have left my passport in a guesthouse safe or locked up in my pack, I have that copy to use as identification if needed.

I do the same thing about scanning my important documents, important phone numbers in case you lose your credit card or need to contact your bank in case there were any mix ups at the ATM. I too put it in my yahoo address file so that I can access it on any computer. However, I always make sure I sign out my email address off of any computer. I also give information to a contact in the States just in case that didn’t work.

I further recommend to flush the cache and clear all cookies and the browser history if you leave the internet cafe. Also clear all saved passwords. I found that many internet cafes configure their browsers to automatically save everything (or its the user who isn't familiar with how all this works).

After all this, I am still not overly confident in checking some of the information. There could be spyware running that logs all your passwords and transmits them.

Try not to log into your bank accounts from a computer that isn't yours.
