Odyssey Travel's Helpful Lists

General  "T-R-A-V-E-L"  list

T - Take only what you actually need for a trip - don't over-pack.  If you don't wear something at home, the chances are that you won't wear it on your trip either.  Take less and you will travel cheaper (no check-in luggage fees), travel faster (no waiting for your bags) and travel easier (less to lug around).

R - Research your destination and then leave the guidebook at home. Photocopy the pages that you will actually need. It saves weight and space and you can discard them after you're finished with them. Learn a few useful words of the local language and then use them. Use a local guide when visiting cultural monuments and you will learn a lot more.

A - Avoid carrying a wallet in your back pocket or carrying a handbag only over your shoulder. Be sure to look around whenever you get up to leave somewhere (chair at the airport, cafe, bar, etc.) to make sure you haven't left anything behind.

V - Verify airport codes on your checked bags. Learn your destination airport codes (which are not always intuitive) and make sure the tags match your destination. It will also help you find your checked bag if the bag itself is unusual in some respect - ribbons, bows, etc. can easily get torn off in transport.

E - Expect the unexpected and embrace it. Your travel will be a lot less stressful if you can maintain a   positive attitude. Getting angry is pretty much wasted energy and usually has the effect of discouraging people from helping you resolve issues.

L - Leave space in your plans for an impromptu adventure. Sometimes the most interesting,  unusual or humorous memories of a trip happen on the fly.

I just wanted to drop you a few lines as we just got back last night from Mexico staying at the UNICO Resort.  This was easily the best trip Courtney and I have ever been on.  The resort was incredible and everything was seamless.  (Customs in Mexico was terrible, but that’s to be expected).  The quality and friendliness of the entire staff was amazing.  The food and the drink was the best we’ve ever experienced and the resort itself was extremely clean and well laid out.  And the view from our room……almost seemed fake it was so incredible.  We’re hoping to plan another trip to UNICO again in the future.  Thanks again for the recommendation and the setup of this trip!   Dave & Courtney

We just got back Saturday night and wanted to thank you for the great trip you put together for us! 

The Barcelo was wonderful – we’d definitely go back there again.  Food was great, the Barcelo staff were so very nice and helpful, the rooms were very nice, pools and the beach were wonderful.  So much to do there – the on site snorkeling was really good and saved us some cash by not having to get an excursion lined up.  The Mexican market and the Mall made it easy for us to get items we needed and gifts to bring back without having to go into the nearest town.   Lomas travel was just as great as they were last year – so helpful and accommodating.Told my husband we’re going again next year – so I’ll be in touch next fall!   

Thanks again for your advice and help!!  You are awesome!

Gabby and I had a fantastic time at the Riu! The staff was amazing, food was delicious, and it was an all around great experience. We got to spend a few days relaxing on the beach, went on a volcano tour, and rented a car to drive into Liberia Costa Rica
 
I'd highly recommend the Arenal Volcano tour done by CATours (http://centralamericantours.net/) if anyone asks about activity suggestions. They took care of everything...meals, transportation, and the actual tour through the rain forest.  
 
We really appreciated your help getting all of this set up. It was an amazing time!
 
Thanks, 
Josh and Gabby M.

Wanted to get back to you about our amazing trip to Turks & Caico’s!! It really was PARADISE and we didn’t want to leave! The wedding was just perfect and I worked with the on-site wedding planner and she was great.
The resort was fabulous. We loved all the restaurants and swim up bars!!! Our butler’s were fantastic and we were spoiled beyond belief. We scuba dived, parasailed and took a catamaran cruise and the water was just unbelievable!!
I wouldn’t of changed anything and am anxious to try out more Sandals Resorts.
