    • Get travel insurance

If you’re not from the UK, you should absolutely make sure that you have travel insurance in case you hurt yourself or break a bone, because this can be really costly if you don’t have the proper cover.

    • Finances

Ensure that you have the best case scenario for your finances when you’re on holiday, including travel credit cards and enough cash to cover your tips and situations when there aren’t any card machines. Don’t forget to separate out your money, just in case you lose your wallet, you don’t want all of it to be in the one place.
