Going on a vacation? Short on time for doing the planning and preparation? You are one of the many people who delay the process till the 11thhour. But all is not lost;you can still make up for the lost time if you go about the task in an organized manner.
Make 2-3 checklists
The first thing you should do is to make 2-3 checklists for articles to be carried and important things to be done. This will make your job a lot easier and reduce the risk of missing out anything. Once you have alist in hand, you can start with the preparation.
Carry some common medicines
For those ailing with medical conditions it is very important that they carry all the prescribed medication. Besides, everyone mustcarry a portable first aid box and a few medicines for common conditions like fever, headache, nausea, ointment for skin injuriesetc.
Call utilities service provider for suspension of service
All utilities service providers should be informed that you will not be available in the city for a certain period of time. Supplies for that period should be suspended. This willsave you some money and reduce the risk any type of accidents that may take place, like storing cooking gas and other hazardous chemicals.
Are you forgetting the travel documents?
Last butnot the least you need to be sure that you have all the necessary travel documents before you leave your home. Tickets, passport and visa should be kept together so that you do not have to look for them at different places when asked to produce.
Keep calm and be organized and you will make it before it strikes twelve even if you start at the eleventh hour.
