When planning a vacation to international destinations, it's a good idea to prepare a checklist for your group members. Many people have never traveled abroad, and they simply don't know what they need to pack for an international vacation. Many of the top travel destinations cater to the specific needs of American tourists, but your group members still need some general guidelines for packing and conduct when visiting foreign countries.

One of the most important things to pack when traveling abroad is identification. It's impossible to fly into another country without a passport. Many travel experts also suggest bringing along birth certificates and other forms of identification. It's also important to carry proof of travel insurance and health insurance.

Safety Tips for Americans Traveling Abroad

If you don't want to call attention to the fact that you're a tourist, it's a good idea to research local dress codes. In addition, it's a good idea to review maps and local travel options the night before, so you don't look lost during the day. Travel experts suggest leaving your fine jewelry at home when you travel overseas. In addition, you might want to pick up a money belt for hiding your cash under your clothes.

When traveling as a group, it's important to know where all the group members are during the day. If you plan on splitting up into smaller parties, it's a good idea to have a daily check-in time. If you're traveling with younger people, it's important to have at least one adult with them at all times.
