Five important tips for travelling in the winters

Winters are a lovely time to travel around the world. You will find the most beautiful destinations even more beautiful with the lovely cool weather, without all the sweat and the tanning to worry about. 
But travelling in this season needs a bit of planning especially if you live in really cold areas. 

Plan and pack

You may love travelling impromptu but in the winters try and plan early. Consider what time you have in hand. If you go to a place where it snows in winters, think about whether you are packed for the cold. 

Leave early

It seems like a good tip to stick to in any weather but winters are the time to be extra careful. Leave at least an hour earlier than what you had planned for your flight. Cars break down more often in winters. There is also fog or an unseasonal rain to consider. A lot of flights are recheduled so reaching the airport early would certainly be a boon.

Medication

Buy all the necessary medication and pack it carefully. In the small chance that you are stuck somewhere, you don't want to fall sick. Also pack in some first aid just in case.

Child safety

If you are travelling with a child make sure they have enough warm clothes. Pack more than necessary if you are unsure. Children play in the snow and can get their clothing wet, it is better to have an extra set instead of risking a flu.

Road trip safety

Carry these essentials tow rope, jumper cables, sand to aid with traction in case you are going to the mountains, blankets, flashlights, matches and emergency candles. Also carry alot of fluids as it is easy to get dehydrated in the winters since we don't feel as thirsty due to the cold and it can cause a lot of problems
