Some Friendly Advice for Your Trips to Ireland

When traveling abroad, it is always important to do so safely. Some very easy precautions can make sure that your trips overseas remain completely safe. One of the first things to consider when taking a trip to Ireland is to make sure that you have all of your ID requirements met in order to get through customs. This sometimes means that you start planning for your trip a few months in advance so that you can avoid any fees by allowing enough time to have your passport processed, rather than paying for rush service.

Another travel tip is to avoid paying too much for currency exchange rates. Often one of the strangely exciting parts about trips to Ireland can be using foreign money. This often causes people to change their money out in the airport; however, if you wait until you are at a bank in Ireland, you are significantly more likely to get a better rate for your cash. More cash in hand means being able to do and enjoy more while you are abroad without having to worry about your finances, or if you can afford to bring home some presents for your family. It is important to note that on YMT’s Best of Ireland Tour, you will actually be using two different types of currency so you will want to research ahead.

Finally, when traveling abroad in foreign countries, you may want to consider how much money you actually carry on you at any given time. Often, cruise ships and hotels offer safes for your valuables so that you don’t need to carry your entire travel budget with you. Additionally, gentlemen can make pick-pocketing much harder by moving their wallet into their front pocket so that there is even less of a chance of incident while you are abroad.

An additional step to consider when you’re traveling is to phone your bank and let them know when you will be leaving and returning, so that they can authorize your credit or debit cards for use in unusual places.

With these simple tips, and YMT Vacations, you can fully enjoy your trips to Ireland.
