The excitement of traveling is accompanied by certain inconveniences, many of which arise before departure. 

If you’re taking a flight to your location, you must plan your hotel stays and shop for the cheapest airfare (or cruise). 

Next, you must confirm that your passports, Global Entry cards, and immunizations are current. On a trip with kids or pets?
