if you're just visiting the place for 2-3 days, better not to bring a lot of things. It's more convenient if you just have a hand luggage with you because when you're in a new place/country all you want is to see more of the country than just staying in one area to rest.

Hi Alaxender,

Are you planning a road trip to America? Then I have for you the best Conejo travel tips.

The first and most important travel tip for your Conejo trip: Find a travel buddy. Travelers reduce the overall budget enormously. The more you are, the less each one of you will pay. In addition, the fun factor for two or three is obviously higher than if you were traveling alone.

Also you can take a rental car. Conejo is best explored by car, so you should definitely not save on the rental car. By spending most of your time in the car, you should have enough space. Better to take a larger rental car, as one too small. But again, the more people you are, the cheaper it will be for each individual.

Shop in supermarkets. Self-cooking is known to be cheapest, especially in Conejo. Of course this is difficult if you are traveling by car. But you can at least twice a day for breakfast and dinner on cold meals. This lowers your travel budget immensely.

TOP TRAVEL PREPARATION TIPS
Research your destination. Get copies of maps of your destination to locate routes, attractions, and essential services. Your library, travel agent, and the Internet are some good places to get information.
Talk to fellow travelers. If you know people who have been to the place you plan to visit, ask them about what they liked about their trip and what they would do differently next time.
Make a list and check it twice. Make a list of essentials that you need to pack. Also, make a list of things you want to see and do on your trip.
Are you covered? If you are traveling outside of the U.S., your health and accident insurance may not cover you. Also, look into travel insurance for cancellations or other travel mishaps.


TOP TRAVEL PACKING TIPS
Take advantage of those “hidden” spaces. For example, place small items inside your shoes or the pockets of shirts or jackets you pack..
Pack extra bags in your bag. Packing a duffle bag in your luggage gives you extra space to bring things home with you. It’s also a good idea to bring plastic sandwich or grocery bags for laundry or other items.
Tag those bags. Tag your luggage with a distinctive luggage tag with your contact information to help you find your bag if you lose it. A distinctive tag makes it easier to spot your bag at baggage claim.
Don’t pack what you can get at your destination. Our hotels have a hair dryer in every room, along with many toiletry items, so you don’t need to pack them.
Avoid checking baggage if you can. Limiting your baggage to carry-ons saves you time and aggravation checking your bags, plus you don’t have to worry about losing your baggage.
Get on a roll. You can save space by rolling clothes instead of folding them.
Watch your back (pack). Pack heavier items in the bottom of your backpack and distribute items evenly from left to right. Use both straps to carry it, too.


TOP TIPS FOR INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL
Get your passport. Did you know that you need a current, valid passport if you are traveling anywhere outside of the U.S., including Canada and Mexico? If you don’t have a current, valid passport, visit the U.S. State Department’s Web siteto apply for or renew your passport.
Do you need a visa? In addition to a passport, you may also need a visa to visit some countries. Check with either theU.S. State Department’s Web site or your host country or countries’ tourism or foreign affairs Web sites.
Know before you go. Get any travel advisories or warnings about any countries you plan to visit at the U.S. State Department’s Office of American Citizens Services and Crisis Management site.
Learn the lingo. Learning just a few basic phrases in the local language makes getting around easier.
Make change count. You may be able to get a better exchange rate by changing currency at home. Also, change money only at banks and authorized exchanges.
Make sure your cell phone works. Ask your cell phone provider if your phone will work outside the U.S.

Travelling is one of my favorite hobbies. Let me share some tips from my experience.

Do some research before going to a new place.
Look for information about the weather, the culture, the attractions, and the best time to visit.
Book flights, hotels, and tours in advance. It also helps to get better deals and discounts. you can try comparing flight ticket rates from here https://www.skyscanner.com/
Always pack light and smart. Only bring the essentials, such as clothes, toiletries, documents, and gadgets.
Respect the local customs and laws. Sometimes it's better to have local as your guide as they can help you with local laws, customs, especially if you are not familiar with the language history of your destination. You can read pro's and con's of having tour guide from here https://gowithguide.com/blog/hiring-a-g ... -cons-5519
Dress modestly and appropriately, especially when visiting religious or sacred sites.
follow the rules and regulations, and avoid doing anything that might offend or harm the locals or the environment.

Happy Travelling!
