Fine print while travelling
Accommodation costs: If you’ve ever stayed in a hotel with a mini-bar, it’s safe to say you’re familiar with the idea of getting charged for the bag of chips or mini bottle of wine awaiting you in your room. But, in some cases, you may be surprised by what is not included in the cost of your room. Be sure to check before booking whether or not hotel and hostel extras like breakfast, towels and luggage storage are included in your price or are available at an extra cost, so that you can plan and pack accordingly. Also be aware that leaving your room or home stay in an extremely messy state or lost keys can sometimes incur extra cleaning charges or loss of security deposit.
Data plans: If you’re travelling abroad with a phone, be sure to turn off your cellular data or stick within your allotted minutes and data limits to avoid surplus roaming and usage charges. Download offline maps, sync music to your phone and be vigilant about wifi in order to avoid running into these costly traps.
