You have picked your destination and booked your journey. Just a little while longer and you’re on your way. To make sure you have thought of everything, here are a few tips to make your trip go smoothly.
Make sure you bring all your travel documents to the airport.
First of all, bring your identity card or international passport. Do not forget to check their validity. If you have dual nationality, it is best to bring the passport of your second nationality in case this is requested for the country of destination.
Other documents that may be required in these COVID-19 times are:
Take out the appropriate insurance when travelling. Which part of the trip do you wish to insure?
You can take out this insurance separately or in a bundle.
In addition, things are different depending on whether you have composed your trip yourself or purchased a package holiday:
Wearing a face mask is mandatory everywhere at the airport and on the plane. A few spare ones in your luggage are certainly welcome.
For your own comfort while travelling, we recommend that you travel as lightly as possible. You’ll have your hands free and you’ll will get through security screening more rapidly.
Also know that, trolleys are not allowed in and past the security control area, which means you’ll have to carry everything yourself. So the less carry-on baggage you have, the more convenient it will be for you.
If you are travelling with children, then you probably will carry more with you anyway. Small, foldable prams can usually be taken up to the entrance of the plane.
What is allowed in your luggage:
A lot of things can be arranged in advance, so that you have your head and hands free to enjoy. A few examples:
