4 Tips you need for planning a Long-Term Travel

The prospect of travelling long-term is very exciting. If travelling for six months, a year or even longer is something you want to do, you are reading the right article. Here are 10 top tips for planning a long-term travel.

1. Know your purpose and do your research. 

Most on-campus accommodations require students to move out during semester break. Carting all your belongings home can be expensive, and your time and energy should be focused on gaining new experiences outside of academia. One way to do so is to rent a self storage unit. Not only is this cost-effective, but it also keeps your stuff safe over the semester break!

2. Estimate the cost of your trip.

Once you have an idea about the length of your trip, and the type of experience you want to have, it is time to estimate the approximate cost of your trip. The cost should include your flights, transport, accommodation, food, tours, sightseeing and gears that you need for your adventures. Create a monthly budget based on how much you need, and then start saving and making extra money.

3. Immunization process, passport and visas.

If you have saved enough for your trip, congratulations! Now, start looking for cheap flights. You can be flexible on the departure date so that you can stick on your budget, but don’t be flexible with immunization process. Visiting your doctor as early as possible to discuss your travel plans and seek advice regarding immunization cannot be delayed as shots are done in series and may need at least six months between shots. Also, getting your passport ready and apply for visas (if needed) should be the first thing you do before booking a flight ticket.

4. Redirect your mail and store your belongings.

Now that you have a solid itinerary, a departure date, and travel documents ready. It is time to make the final preparation. Firstly, you need to re-direct your mail. The best option is to re-direct your mail to your parents’ mail address. That way, they can open and scan important letters and notify you wherever you are. You can do this by going to any Pos Malaysia office and fill out a redirection application form.
If you are living in your own apartment/house, consider renting your place while you’re away and generate income while you’re travelling. Storing your valuables is always a smart move if you choose to rent your place to short-term renters. But if you’re renting a place at the moment and are moving out, you definitely need a self storage to store your belongings while you’re away. A climate controlled storage facility, like the one Cube Self Storage have in Petaling Jaya, is the best option. Not only that Cube Self Storage offers the lowest price, but the facility
