Travel essentials

Remember that anywhere you go, the three basic essentials are:

  • - passport
  • - visa
  • - foreign exchange

Your passport identifies you, your visa allows you in, and foreign exchange will pay for expenses.

This article will not cover how to get a passport or visa. If you’re reading this, chances are that you have a passport, and you have been provided a visa by your sponsor. What we’d like to help you with is how you can ease into your stay in the UK, enjoy the cultural exposure, and hopefully ‘go native’ when here.

So, how much foreign exchange (‘forex’, if you want to sound clever) do you need to carry, and in what currency? Most travel agents will allow you to purchase travellers checks pound sterling, which is preferable to dollars.

Once here, they can be quickly converted to notes in any reputed bank. The amount is easily variable, but for one days decent hotel, basic travel, and food, you’d want to allow about £120.

So, keep your passport, visa papers and forex safely with you. All else failing, seasoned travellers would advise that with these, you’d be able to make your way through.
