If you have just booked a holiday then you may start to get excited and plan things that you would like to do when you get there. You would think that once everything is booked and paid for you should be able to switch off and only worry about the packing but unfortunately it is possible to experience issues with your travel or accommodation, which if not sorted out quickly can cause havoc and delays and risk spoiling your break away.
If you have booked accommodation yourself rather than through a travel agent, then it is worth ringing ahead at least a week in advance just to confirm your booking and double check what you may need to take with you. By doing this, you can pick up on any problems such as errors on the booking system which may not have recorded your booking correctly.
If you are flying, then you will need to check your flight details to make sure it has not been cancelled or delayed. This can often only be done 24 hours or so prior to your flight time. If you are unsure, then you can always call the airline direct to confirm.
