As a traveler, you need to be careful about everything. Make sure you carry copies of your ID cards, passport, and even bank cards. I would suggest doing this for your safety, in case something drastic happens. Another perfect idea is uploading those copies in your email account for safety.

Book in advance

Make habit of booking the flights and hotels in advance. In this way, you do not have to rush in the last hour. Sometimes it may be convenient to book in advance, particularly if you require allowance for trekking. Your booking research will make this part of your travel much comfortable.

Do proper research
