Transcript: 6 Tips for Traveling Abroad

International travel tips: Before you leave, connect with your relationship manager at Wells Fargo Private Bank. Letting us know about both domestic and international travel plans helps us assist you with any financial needs, including detecting suspicious charges on your behalf.

To get the best price, buy your airfare 99 days in advance for travel to a European destination and 90 days in advance of travel to a destination in Asia. Register in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program to receive travel warnings, alerts, and other important information about your destination from the U.S. Embassy.

Get your cash from a bank or ATM in the country you're visiting. Airport currency conversion typically results in poor exchange rates and high fees.

Grab a business card from your hotel upon check-in. If you ever get lost, you have the name and address of your lodging that you can easily show to taxi drivers.

Keep a small, light backpack with you on your flights to store electronics, jewelry, medications, toiletries, and a quick change of clothes in case your checked baggage gets lost.
