Travel is the movement of people (in vehicles such as airplanes, boats, trains and other conveyances) between relatively distant geographical locations for any purpose and any duration. As an activity, “travel” also covers all the activities performed during a travel (movement).
The term “travel” originates from the Old French word travail. Most travel is done for recreation or to visit friends and family (sometimes as part of tourism). Travel may occur by walking or human-powered mode, or through mechanical vehicles, either as private or public transport.
Travel may be local, regional, national (domestic) or international. In some countries, non-local internal travel may require an internal passport, while international travel typically requires a passport and visa.
Call it a trip, vacation, tourism or what you may, you will need lodging, and, perhaps, transportation. Our Associates are here to help you.
It’s important to take precautions to ensure travel safety. When traveling abroad, the odds favor a safe and incident-free trip, however, travelers can be subject to difficulties, crime and violence. Some safety considerations include being aware of one’s surroundings, avoiding being the target of a crime, leaving copies of one’s passport and itinerary information with trusted people, obtaining medical insurance valid in the country being visited and registering with one’s national embassy when arriving in a foreign country. Many countries do not recognize drivers’ licenses from other countries; however most countries accept international driving permits. Automobile insurance policies issued in one’s own country are often invalid in foreign countries, and it’s often a requirement to obtain temporary auto insurance valid in the country being visited. It’s also advisable to become oriented with the driving rules and regulations of destination countries. Wearing a seat belt is highly advisable for safety reasons and because many countries have penalties for violating seatbelt laws.
