  • The advantages of having a credit card when you travel.
  • Learn about the culture and norms ahead of time so you know what to expect.

  • Be ready for phone service issues. Check with your provider ahead of time.
  • Consider a tour or cruise for your first experience if you are unsure of how to proceed.
  • Safety tips and procedures to consider when you take children on international travel.
