Travel is the movement of individuals between different distant geographical areas. Travel can be a single way or round trip, done by car, bike, plane, train, bus, boat or any other means and is one way or multiple ways to get there. There are different types of travel such as land, sea, air and sea, but mostly all travel is by land. People go to visit their friends and family, visit tourist destinations, to study/are enrolled in a school, or just to have fun.
When traveling, people need to check travel restrictions and inclement weather conditions. Traveling by land requires that travelers give at least six hours notice, because even on days when there is light to moderate rain, some roads may be unreachable due to the rain or heavy winds. Traveling by sea usually requires at least a day’s notice. Traveling by air requires that travelers give at least 24 hours’ notice, even if the destination airport is less than one hundred miles away from the last point of arrival.
People traveling by land must be able to demonstrate their identity, whether they are traveling for business or pleasure, and they must carry their original passport, or a valid unexpired passport. People traveling by water require that they have a passport that has been issued by the country that they plan to travel to. If travelers intend to bring their own belongings, they should consider purchasing traveler’s checks and paying the applicable duty and taxes. In the United States, tourists must also follow all laws regarding their immigration and currency exchanges, and they must purchase traveler’s checks from banks that accept U.S. currency.
