There are many things during your trips that can make you regret your decision. One of them is the thing you do just a day before you end your trip. Most of people do everything that day to ensure they get the most of their trip. They even like to blow off the responsibilities awaiting at home just for the sake of it. Problems may arise on the last day of the trip if you do something reckless and unnecessary.
What to do to end your trip without problems
Being reckless and free doesn’t mean you can just do anything. It means, not be afraid of expressing yourself and enjoy every moment to the fullest. It also doesn’t mean you can create problems here and there. Responsible travel is what you need to embrace for meaningful, seamless travel experience. And here are things you can do to end your trip on the last day seamlessly and meaningfully:
Pack early so you won’t leave anything behind your hotel room. It is one of the most common problems to leave various items due to ruched packing. Instead of doing the packing on the day of your leave, it is better to do on the last day of the trip. This way, you won’t have to rush anything as well. You can deal with wet clothes and separate them from the dry, clean ones.
Stock what you need at home
Stock the things you need at home via online order. You don’t want to arrive at your house with growling stomach just to find out that the fridge is bare. You will be too lazy to go grocery shopping just right after you arrive at home. Hence, you can get ahead of stuffs to do at home on your trip’s last day instead.
Make sure your keys of your home and car is in your bag
Find your car and home keys and make sure they are in your bag. It can be a moment of panic when you are already in front of your car but cannot find where the key is. Also, check where you parked your car. This way, you are still in clear mind to remember where it is for later use. If you use another transport such as rental or a pick-up, confirm it on the last day of your trip.
Deal with leftover currency
Next thing to do on your last day of the trip is to deal with the leftover currency. Check your money and see how much you still have and what are you going to do about it. You can decide to change it back to your own currency at your departure or arrival airport. Or, you can also have an airport shopping spree and buy some souvenirs.
Sort out important travel document
Find and sort out your important travel document. It is possible that everything is mixed messily here and there. You don’t want to keep digging in the bag to find important document during your trip back home. Store them in the right place accessible for you to take out for smoother trip back home later.
