Are you one of those people who are always happily traveling from point A to point Z, without having a gripe with your airline(s)? Well then, let me tell you, you are in a minority!
Office Supplies: This is a given. If you use ink in your printer, or paper to print on, or even pens & pencils for your business; these are all tax-deductible. Be sure to keep every receipt.
Thoroughly research the places that you plan to visit and compile a list of must-see sites. This will guide you on how many days to spend in each destination and ensure you don’t miss the best of the city’s attractions.
Seek doctor’s advice for topping up your immunisations, especially if travelling to third world countries. Preventions require much less pain than cures!
Collect perfume or aftershave samples from glossy magazines and department stores. This will not only save space in your name tags for luggage, and reduce the risk of bottles spilling over your clothes, but will also provide you with a nice range of fragrances to choose from on your travels.
When walking round a city carry a local newspaper with you. It will make you look less like a tourist, more streetwise and therefore less susceptible to hassle from strangers.
Try and use your credit card at least once a week. In the event of you going missing this will help the authorities to quickly trace your last known movements.
