Odyssey Travel's Helpful Lists

General  "T-R-A-V-E-L"  list

T - Take only what you actually need for a trip - don't over-pack.  If you don't wear something at home, the chances are that you won't wear it on your trip either.  Take less and you will travel cheaper (no check-in luggage fees), travel faster (no waiting for your bags) and travel easier (less to lug around).

R - Research your destination and then leave the guidebook at home. Photocopy the pages that you will actually need. It saves weight and space and you can discard them after you're finished with them. Learn a few useful words of the local language and then use them. Use a local guide when visiting cultural monuments and you will learn a lot more.

A - Avoid carrying a wallet in your back pocket or carrying a handbag only over your shoulder. Be sure to look around whenever you get up to leave somewhere (chair at the airport, cafe, bar, etc.) to make sure you haven't left anything behind.

V - Verify airport codes on your checked bags. Learn your destination airport codes (which are not always intuitive) and make sure the tags match your destination. It will also help you find your checked bag if the bag itself is unusual in some respect - ribbons, bows, etc. can easily get torn off in transport.

E - Expect the unexpected and embrace it. Your travel will be a lot less stressful if you can maintain a   positive attitude. Getting angry is pretty much wasted energy and usually has the effect of discouraging people from helping you resolve issues.

L - Leave space in your plans for an impromptu adventure. Sometimes the most interesting,  unusual or humorous memories of a trip happen on the fly.

Testimonials from our customers:



Wanted to get back to you about our amazing trip to Turks & Caico’s!! It really was PARADISE and we didn’t want to leave! The wedding was just perfect and I worked with the on-site wedding planner and she was great.
The resort was fabulous. We loved all the restaurants and swim up bars!!! Our butler’s were fantastic and we were spoiled beyond belief. We scuba dived, parasailed and took a catamaran cruise and the water was just unbelievable!!
I wouldn’t of changed anything and am anxious to try out more Sandals Resorts.

Jim and I want to tell you what a wonderful time we had on the Holland America Cruise and Land Tour.  Thanks so much for your legwork organizing this excursion for us.  Everything was wonderful!    
The ship was lovely and we really enjoyed the Juneau stop, but the real fun awaited us on the land tour.  The tour guide and drivers were excellent.  We really loved both train rides - in White Pass and the one from Denali to Anchorage.  One of our favorite stops was Dawson City - what an interesting place!  We booked a bus tour of the gold strike area and dredges.  The guide was excellent and extremely knowledgeable.  That was a highlight!  The Fairbanks boat tour was wonderful. We especially loved the accommodations at Denali. All in all, we had a wonderful trip.  Thanks for all you did to make it happen for us.
