Travelling is the favorite hobby of this guy, he has seen all the world and has spent his fair share of time in almost every landmark in the world there is. He teaches us about what to watch out for when travelling and what are the kind of tourist traps you can encounter while travelling.

What are tourist traps?

Tourist traps are a kind of thing from which everyone must look out for. There are tourist traps all over the world. A tourist trap means that a person who is a traveler or who is a tourist going from one place to another in an unknown country and who doesn’t know the ups and downs of tourism and culture in that certain country and easily fall into the tourist trap. That means a person can be scammed by the locals, or even be kidnapped by the locals or the people in the local scene who are waiting for people to come over in their home town so that they can scam them out. These are found everywhere and in every country in the world and everybody must be aware of them before travelling otherwise it can cost them a lot of money time and give them tension as well.

How to save yourself from the dangers?

Mr. Saqib Soomro enlightened us with his vast knowledge that how do you get out of or should watch out for or stay away from the tourist traps. We can easily see that the best way to save yourself from a tourist trap is to do research. One must do a lot of research before travelling he told us, over the internet, over the magazines or the word of mouth, one must read blogs about traps of the tourist and etc. Because once you get in a tourist trap it can cost you a lot of money and time other things, and since a person only goes on a tour just to be happy and feel good it becomes very confusing for him if he gets scammed or suffers and problem. Internet these days is filled with the information of the tourist traps. One must do research complete before going on a trip abroad.

Importance of insurance while travelling.

Mr. Saqib Soomro said that travel insurance is of utmost importance. A person or a group of people who are travelling must get themselves travel insurance for every person. This is imperative because when you are travelling in another country, you can come across many dangers and many problems and if you get sick you have to spend a lot of foreign exchange in order to get well. So that’s why it is told that you should get your health insured before going for a trip abroad. It will cost you a little at him but it will also secure you from the big loss suffered in the case if you get sick. So always get yourself insured by good company.

How many times you should travel and what its frequency should be

The Money factor

He says that money is the primary factor which determines the frequency of travelling a person does. A lot of it has to do with the passion and the intention of a person. If a person wants to travel the world he will save by all the means. The best way of saving money he says is buy dividing the amount of income you get into three categories. One you save and invest for future, one you say keep for monthly expenses and one you save for travel. When you keep that income and add a multiplier effect to it on the monthly basis that income at the end of the year equates to a huge amount which will help you in travelling. A travelling according to Mr. Saqib Soomro will be modest but that is all that you want to do. Because according to him when it comes to the passionate travelers they don’t look for luxuries in their travel, all they want to do is to roam and world and see the places this world has to offer them. So if you want to travel the world, and have a limited budget, you must start saving.

The frequency of travelling

As it is stated before that more than the money the thing what matters in the travelling is the passion. And that determines the way you live your life. Mr. Saqib Soomro tells that he has a friend, his travel technique is that he saves all the time, and since he does a job, he gets 15 days off from his work in the form of annual leaves. In which he has divided in to two categories, one he takes a 7 days leave in the start of the year and second he takes the 7 days leaves near the month of December, so that’s how he splits his leave into two and he has two vacations in an year. Same way he has this another friend he is a business man but the good thing about him is that he can travel whenever he want to because he owns his own business and he has nobody to ask the leave from.

Two times is the must for all

Mr. Saqib Ahmed Soomro believe that nobody how rich or poor a person has he must travel at least two times a year, just to refresh his mind and reenergize his body mind and soul. He always says that you must move on with your life and the best way to learn new cultures and open up the mind is by travelling at least twice a year. Twice a year a person learns to travel and learns to mingle with the cultures to different places and most importantly he makes memories which will last forever.
