Besides, make sure to carry small bills of US Dollars and Euros with you. Also, credit cards can be used all over the world, but make sure to carry some cash.

Pack your carry-on bag
As most airlines charge for carrying a checked bag, it’s easier and cheaper to bring a carry-on bag with you. However, there are some weight and liquid restrictions for carry-on bags.

Pack your gadgets and electronics but keep them well-protected. Read the liquids airline requirements and pack them into a clear, zip-top bag. Pack lip balm, mini toothpaste, and toothbrush, hand cream, face wipes, deodorant, shampoo, basically anything small size. As they may be snoring people and crying babies during flight, carry a pair of earplugs or some headphones.

Don’t forget to wear a warm jacket
No matter where you go and how warm it is there, it's always 10 to 20 degrees colder in the actual plane. Avoid catching a cold and bring a warm jacket or any cozy sweater with you.
Minimize the shoes in your suitcase
Traveling in style for women usually means packing tons of stylish clothes and shoes. And, of course, they don’t wear half of what they’ve packed. To avoid this, don’t pack more than 3 pairs of shoes. You’ll need comfortable sneakers, low boots or sandals, and high heels if you plan to enjoy some nightlife.
Minimize the clothes, too!
You won’t travel in style if you carry an over-packed suitcase and carry heavy luggage everywhere. Wear something sporty and comfortable during the trip and pack one daily outfit, one event/evening outfit, nightwear, and few socks. But, if you are planning a long trip, you’re going to need more.
Learn some basic words of the local language
If you learn some basic words and most common phrases in the foreign language of the country you’re traveling to, it’ll make a huge difference in how you will experience a country. It’s not hard to learn phrases such as “Hello”, “Thank you”, “Sorry”, “Please”, “My name is..” or “Nice to meet you”. People will be delighted as you showed them respect and kindness. Be friendly and stay open to learning about different cultures.
Take insurance and travel in style
Even if you’re just traveling for a couple of days, don’t forget to take insurance. You never know what can go wrong. You may get sick, your bags can go missing, accidents can occur and ruin your vacation. To fully travel in style, insurance is a must-have.
