  • ⛱️ Check the expiration on your travel docs & memberships

    Since many of us haven't traveled much in the past 18 months, many of our passports and memberships like PreCheck and Clear have expired.

  • ⛱️ Choose your accommodations

    Think about who you are traveling with and what you'll need when you get there. A vacation rental can provide more space and the use of a full kitchen, but often lacks the amenities and reliability of a hotel. Use Google Hotel Finder to search for both types of lodging in your travel destination, but pro-tip, booking with the hotel directly will often get you the best deal and perks. https://link.joinarrange.com/beachvacation_googletravel

  • ⛱️ Pick up cash for tips

    Cash is still king in hospitality. Take out $50 - $100 in small bills so you're not caught empty handed with a helpful bellhop or bartender. Keep the bills in an easy to access pocket so you don't have to fumble when tipping.

  • ⛱️ Pack travel docs

    COVID policies are changing rapidly and countries and destinations that may not have had any requirements when you booked could now mandate proof of vacination or specific COVID tests. The CDC has a good overview of different travel restrictions, but ultimately it's best to check with your airline before travel. Some airports offer COVID testing for travelers before takeoff. This is convienent but fills up fast, make a reservation to reserve your date and time. https://link.joinarrange.com/beachvacation_CDCCovidupdates
