Thank you for booking with Imagine Asia. Here is a check-list that other clients have found useful plus some of our favourite extras websites:
A: Travel Insurance
Remember to buy TRAVEL INSURANCE as soon as you book. By booking your travel insurance now, you will be covered for anything that happens between now and the departure date that could affect your travel arrangements.
Always check the small print and be aware of the excess you will be charged if you claim. Leave a copy of your travel insurance policy details and emergency contact number with a contact at home, as well as taking a copy with you on your holiday.
Please read your booking confirmation email to for suggestions of insurance providers we have found that offer ‘ash cloud’ related cover, and cancellation cover in the event of FCO advisories against travel.
B: Check Passports and Visas
Each country has different requirements in terms of the length of time left until your passport expires, the number of blank pages in your passport as well as visa requirements.
Arrange an appointment with your GP to discuss your VACCINATION requirements. Most GPs recommend a consultation 8 weeks before your departure date to ensure your vaccinations are up to date.
D: Foreign Currency
There are a number of companies that now offer you the facility to order your currency online. More often than not this will give you far better rates than your bank or the airport exchange booths. If you are worried about carrying cash and would prefer not to have the hassle of travellers cheques then try a Currency Card which can be pre-loaded with currency and used like a normal credit card overseas.
E: Pre-book Airport Facilities
By pre-booking hotels, parking or even a hotel near the airport, you can take advantage of discounted rates. And to make the airport experience a little more special, we recommend booking an airport lounge to relax in before your flight.
