Top 10 Concerns of First Time Travelers

Travel can be stressful, especially for first-timers, but a little knowledge and some help from the professionals goes a long way. Our New York car service is a safe, courteous, luxurious and professional option, providing limo service in NY and offering the perfect way to take the stress out of your commute to JFK. Here are 10 of the most common first-time travel anxieties and some ways you can make sure you're in the clear. 

1. Getting to the Airport on Time

Nobody wants to miss a flight. If you plan to get to the airport two hours before your flight leaves, you're likely to make it to your gate on time. Use of our limo service is one great way to ensure you make it to JFK in plenty of time. 

2. Making Sure Luggage Reaches its Intended Destination

The fear of lost luggage is more common than the issue itself. Less than 4 in every 1000 bags is mishandled! If you want to feel extra secure, check the routing tag on your bag right after it's processed to make sure the destination matches yours. 

3. Converting Currency for International Travel

New travelers often wonder where to convert money cheaply. Airport kiosks and similar conversion centers charge an arm and a leg, but your bank or credit union can perform the service with the lowest fees and get you the best exchange rate. 

4. Keeping Money Safe While Overseas

Many people prefer not to carry physical money when traveling in case it's lost or stolen. Nowadays many travelers rely on a prepaid travel card, securing them American exchange rates and keeping their money safe. 

5. Making Sure Pets and Kids are Cared For

It's hard to feel truly calm on a trip if you don't know your loved ones are safe and secure. Planning ahead to make a caregiving schedule for pets and kids or using one of many verified caregiving services will give you peace of mind. 

6. Overcoming a Language Barrier

Language barriers are easily overcome with technology. New travelers often worry that they'll struggle to get by internationally but will be surprised at easily apps assist with translation and how much basic English is known worldwide. 

7. Trying New Cuisines

No one wants to order something, not knowing what it is, take a bite and discover it's something they don't like. New travelers should beat this anxiety by researching their destination's local cuisines and finding a few dishes that sound good to them. 

8. Learning to Travel in a Foreign Country

Flying can seem like the easy part when travelers are faced with getting from place to place. It can be reassuring to research train and bus routes and find navigation apps that can help you use public transportation effectively. 

9. Finding Accommodations at a Low Price

Travel isn't cheap, and young first-time travelers are always concerned about saving a buck. A little flexibility goes a long way here, as there are many websites that showcase last minute deals and cancellations at nice venues for low prices. 

10. Traveling with Special Health Needs

This can be a little more complicated than the rest but talk to your airline and hotel ahead of time. Service professionals are more than willing to accommodate you in whatever way is necessary as long as there's a plan in place and they can do it safely.
