You may face several challenges while traveling to a foreign country or simply going on a road trip to another town. This does not mean that you would become rash and arrogant with fellow passengers or behave frustratingly at a new place. In fact, it may be harmful for your safety and reputation. Thus, here are some important tips on the key travel etiquettes every frequent or even infrequent traveler should hold.
Avoid hogging spaces
While you should not try to hog seats in an airplane or boarding area, you should also not behave weirdly when you find another person doing it. Planes and airports are busy places, and thus, people need to cooperate with each other. Make sure you do not keep a newspaper or another item to hog space, as it may make another person standing.
Deal rightly with an annoying seatmate
Try that you occupy your territory in the airplane early on. Put down your armrests and claim the space under your seat. If you still find your seatmate intruding into your space, then do not show aggression even passively. If requests do not work, then you may alert a flight attendant and switch seats, if possible.
Check on a reckless driver
Avoid messing up with a reckless driver who does not even listen to your feedback. Just pay the fare and record his car or medallion number. Report it later to a local authority to take action.
Follow the driving rules
If you are on a road trip and driving yourself, then ensure to follow the street driving rules so other drivers may not face a problem. Never skip your insurance if you are driving in a foreign land.
You may get into trouble by eating something you have never tried before. If you eat at a new destination, better take some cues from locals and always carry antibiotics to fight food-borne infections.
