For someone who travels as extensively as I do, I rarely have time to figure out all the information in the world online or through extensive research.

Information that I need before I reach my destination

Where am I lodging?

Basically, I know where I am putting my bag as I reach there. A sense of plan is there depending on the time I reach there. Sometimes you reach late at night. Sometimes you reach very early. 

This is one of the critical information that I really want before I reach. I want to know where I would get the best value for my money. 

Questions about my lodging

– How close is it to all the places that I plan to visit?
– Quality of basic amenities like washroom
– Quality of the rooms and furnishing
– Would I get a good breakfast? 
– Any special promotions they are running
– Any special amenities that would affect my stay.

Duration of my stay

Not everyone in the world has infinite time on their hand where they can. If I am traveling with my family then it is super fast forward. Its like activity every single second. We don’t take a breather.

If I am traveling solo, I take my time. However, I like to know the city a little before deciding the number of days I will be spending there. Would it be 2 weeks or would it 2/3 days.

Visa Information

This could totally change your trip. There are so many if -else with visas that you really can’t get handle just whenever you wish. It depends on the strength of your passport. 

Does destination have VOA (Visa on Arrival), E visa? If not – can I apply in a foreign country or do I have to apply in my home country? How long does it take to process the visa?


What kind of clothing do I need to carry to the destination? Do I need to plan something to carry to the destination? Swim Trunks? Ski Gear etc.

Once I have landed to the destination, I don’t plan intense itineraries. I usually go to my hotel concierge to get a basic idea of what I am doing there. Get a free map and circle things that I plan to do.
