List of things to remember about before vacation
What you need to do before vacation at sea (and not only)
Check your bill payment schedule
If the time for payment of utility bills, taxes, interest on loans falls on vacation, deposit money before departure. Otherwise, fines await you after your return - not a very pleasant end to your vacation.
Check the rates of mobile communications and mobile Internet
Do this before leaving, and not at the moment when on the beach upload the first selfies to social networks and find out that the phone is locked and the debt to the operator amounts to tens of thousands of rubles (real cases!). Consider what is more profitable - a travel package of your service provider or a local SIM card.
Don't forget insurance
If traveling in Russia, it is enough to capture the MHI policy. With it, you have the right to receive medical care in any region of the Russian Federation. By the way, an ambulance is even without a policy. If you are traveling abroad, carefully study the insurance coverage. For example, if your family is determined to ride a surf, you will need a program that includes extreme sports. Think about buying comprehensive insurance, which includes not only medical services, but also cancellation and delay of the flight, loss and damage to baggage. How not to get sick on vacation.
Decide where to park your car.
Over the summer, public utilities can dig the yard several times up and down. And there are hurricanes, fallen trees and other surprises. If you are leaving for a long time, the ideal option is to put the car in a garage or in a guarded parking lot. Or consider parking your car in the courtyard of a house where friends or relatives live. Leave them the keys to the car so that in case of emergency work you do not have to move it on the tow truck.
Scan all important documents
These include: passports (domestic and for traveling abroad), insurance policies, international law, tickets, travel vouchers, confirmation of reservation. Send all scans to yourself by e-mail or save in the phone memory to always have access to documents. In addition, print two paper copies each - take one set with you on the trip, leave the other with your relatives. Do not be lazy - this must be done before the holidays.
Leave your apartment keys with family or friends
This is necessary in case of any leaks or accidents. Do not forget to give the neighbors the phone of the person who holds the keys. If you use private security, call the remote control, warn that you will be absent, and leave contacts for emergency cases.
Tidy up the fridge
If you are not at home for several days, get rid of perishable foods. And if you leave for a long time, it makes sense to turn off and defrost the refrigerator. The door in this case must be left ajar.
Take care of a comfortable return
It is unlikely that you will want to run to the store immediately after the plane. Check if there is toothpaste, shampoo, washing powder at home. Think about what you can cook immediately after arrival - this is especially true if you intend to turn off the refrigerator. Have muesli, whole grain breakfast bars, dried fruits, cereals, packaged juice, and long-term milk in your closet.
And what is on your to-do list?
