Tips: The day you leave

On the day that you leave for your holiday:

  • Remove any perishables from the fridge
  • Put out the garbage
  • Un-plug any non-essential appliances
  • Turn off the heater / air conditioning
  • Put the hot water system into holiday mode
  • Set timers (at random) to turn lights on and off
  • Lock the house (including windows) & garage
  • Turn on the alarm

 

Getting to the airport

If you haven’t organised a transfer to the airport please give us a call and we will do it for you.

 

In-flight baggage

Ensure you pack only the allowed limits for liquids, aerosols and gases (100mls) packed in a clear plastic bag for your in-flight luggage.  For more detailed information click here.

 

Medication

Take your medication on your flight (not in your checked luggage in case of delays or lost luggage) and ensure you have a spare prescription in case you run short.

 

What to pack

Less is more: Save some room for shopping!

 

Don’t forget:

  • Camera including batteries / adaptor / spare film / memory card
  • A spare pair of prescription glasses (or the prescription) – just in case
  • Your international driver’s licence if you are renting a car
  • A copy of your travel documents & passport
  • Useful extra - a Steripen water steriliser for side trips a little bit out of the way

 

Prepare for when you arrive

Arriving in a new country can sometimes be a little daunting, despite the excitement of it all. To make things easier, especially after a long flight, we offer the following services:

  • Transfers from the airport to your hotel
  • Making a restaurant reservation for you (we know the secret spots to tantalise your tastebuds!)
  • Booking you into a day spa to rejuvenate your senses and alleviate jet-lag

 

Arriving home

There is nothing worse than facing the taxi queues at the airport after a 24 hour flight home. Contact us to have our driver waiting for you once you get through customs.
