Travel Checklist

Always Be prepared with our checklist



  • Pick your destination
  • Create an itinerary and a “must see” list
  • Buy health and travel insurance
  • Passport (don’t forget to check the expiry date, and remember that some countries won’t allow you to enter if your passport is expiring in 30, 60 or 90 days regardless of how long you intend to stay)
  • Check to see if you need a Visa and begin the Visa process
  • Compare flights to find the best price



  • Make your budget
  • Decide which currencies you need and familiarize yourself with them
  • Pick up or order (in advance) local currency from Continental Currency Exchange and request a FREE copy of your currency equivalency chart – handy for quick currency conversions to track your spending
