1.

TICKETS:  Airline tickets, cruise tickets, and rail tickets should be kept in your purse or carry-on. Do not pack them in luggage that will be checked. Additionally, tickets are like cash, if you loose them or forget them, you must replace them with a new ticket.

2.

AIRPORT: Current regulations indicate that you should arrive at the airport at least 2 hours prior to departure for domestic flights and at least 3 hours for international flights. 

3.

LUGGAGE:  Luggage can be checked for size and weight. Keep checked luggage to 50 lbs or less. Any luggage heavier than 50 lbs is subject to a penalty. You are entitled to one carry-on piece of luggage which should fit above or below your seat. All luggage is subject to inspection. See Baggage Allowance for details.

4.

LUGGAGE TAGS: It is your responsibility to make sure that your luggage is properly tagged for identification. It is best to do this the evening before. In addition to your own identification tags on your luggage, your travel agent or tour operator will also provide everyone on the tour with a luggage tag for your checked bag.

5.

MEDICAL FORMS & Identification: For your safety and as an extra precaution, we ask you to fill out the form with your medical data and a contact person's name (at home) in the event of an emergency. Please insert this form in an envelope sealed with your name on front and give it to your escort or group leader on the day of departure. It is also a good idea to carry your medical card with you in case you need medical attention while traveling.

6.

MEDICATION: Medication should be kept in your carry-on, not in your checked piece of luggage. It is also good to take a copy of your prescription. 

7.

FORMS OF IDENTIFICATION: If your trip involves air travel within the 50 United States, you are required to carry photo identification, i.e., driverís license. As of December 31, 2005, passports will be required for all travel to and from most of the Caribbean, Central and South America, Mexico and Canada. By January 1, 2008, all Americans departing and returning to the United States will be required to have a valid US Passport. For information about obtaining or renewing a passport visit the State Departmentís website: www.travel.state.gov or call the National Passport Information Center at: 877-487-2778.

8.

CLOTHING: Bring comfortable, casual clothing and shoes Type of clothing will be determined by the area and temperatures you are traveling to. It is best to check with the weather channel. Cruises generally have one or two dress-up nights. Gentlemen: Suit or coat and tie. Ladies: Dress or pantsuit. Use your discretion. In the evening, jeans, sneakers, or shorts are never permitted in the dining room. 

9.

ITINERARY: It is a good idea to leave a copy of your itinerary and an emergency phone number with someone at home. Keep in mind an itinerary is always subject to change, your escort or group leader will keep you informed daily if there are any changes in time. Be patient, go with the flow. We want to make sure you have a great time!

10.

INOCULATIONS: Please make sure that your are current with all of your inoculations. This will protect you and your family when you are traveling outside the United States.

12.

MONEY: Traveling Domestically limit cash, use Travelers checks, credit cards.  Internationally, the use of credit card is primary.  With so many different forms of money, your safest bet is to use your credit card, American Express are accepted everywhere.  The use of credit cards overseas assure you the best rate exchange as well.  Small amount of cash should be taken for incidentals only.  Most hotel and ships/cruise lines offer money exchange, but at higher rates. 

 

PASSPORTS: - though you are not required to carry passport domestically, it is your easiest form of identification.  It provides your photo I.D. and proof of citizenship in one - it lasts 10 years.  We at Legacy Tours suggest you apply for a passport.  The application may be obtained at your local courthouse or post office.  You will be required to provide an original copy of your birth certificate - specifically 1 with the raised seal.

13.

INSURANCE: We highly recommend and suggest the purchase of travel insurance.  There are no guarantees that a tour operator, travel agent, cruise line, airline, hotel, bus company or rail line will not go bankrupt or that you may not become ill while traveling. Protect yourself!  We cannot stress this more.  Make sure you purchase reputable insurance and that it covers you for all unforeseen events. Read the policies thoroughly, ask questions - an 800 number is made available for your convenience.  Insurance is not just for cancellation - most importantly, it covers medical, transportation, and evacuation, including bankruptcies if purchased in the designated amount of time - read you policy for procedures and definitions. See our links to Access America & Travel Guard Insurance companies

14.

INDIVIDUAL TRAVELERS: We try to inform travelers from our own personal experiences while visiting an unfamiliar city or town. It is best to start with taking a local guide city tour to orientate (lay of the land) yourself  - which will help you decide where and what you want to see on your visit.  Every town or city has a local tourism or visitor information center. They will be happy to recommend a reliable bus and guide service company.

15.

SECURITY AND SAFETY: A general rule of thumb is travel in pairs, if you are not traveling with a group.  Excursions/side trips are best purchased via the tour operator, travel agent or cruise line.  Know who you are dealing with.  It may look cheap, but you may become stranded or find yourself in an unsafe situation. For the most up-to-date security information please visit the Transportation Security Administration website: www.tsa.gov  New Secure Flight regulations require full name, gender and birth date when booking all air travel

Hotel rooms always have security locks, and safes - use them!
