Are you planning to fly to your place of interest anytime soon? Well, before you plan your holiday, it is very essential to bear in mind certain important things to avoid any last-minute hassles and make your vacation a memorable one. Following travel and luggage tips will help you plan your tour in a better way:1) Airline• If you have planned your tour during the weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year, it is better to arrive at the airport at least two hours before departure. This is because these weeks are the busiest times of the year and the security check lines are very long. Similarly, most airports are extremely crowded on Monday mornings and Friday afternoons.• In order to reduce the possibilities of a delay, it is advisable to prefer a non-stop flight over a break flight. As the air traffic is comparatively less in morning, the early morning flights are very less likely to be delayed.• At the security check of almost all the airports, passengers are asked to remove their footwear. Therefore, it is always better to wear clean socks and slip-on shoes.• As the passengers are required to furnish their identification proof several times before boarding, make sure you carry a lanyard with a plastic passport holder. This will ensure easy I.D. access.2) Luggage:• As the fee charged for checked bags vary between different airlines, make sure you enquire about the baggage rates with the particular airline.• Never wrap your packages.• Carry essentials, such as electronics, medications, and other valuable items, in your carry-on luggage.• Make sure you have labeled all your checked and carry-on baggage with your name or initials and your contact details. For easy and quick identification of your luggage, you can tie a colorful satin ribbon on the handle of each luggage piece. This will help you easily differentiate your luggage from that of your co-passengers.• Do not lock your bags as the lock might be cut off of your baggage for random inspection by the Transportation Security Administration. If you still wish to lock your bags, use the TSA approved locks instead of the normal ones.• If you are carrying your laptop computer along with you, bear in mind that you will be asked to remove it from its case and put it through the X-Ray machine. Therefore, come prepared accordingly.• If you are having with you prescription medicines, baby formula, breast milk, or diabetic nutritional supplements, do not forget to declare the same at the check point.• Gels, pastes, or liquids should be placed in one quart (1 liter) plastic bag and packed in the carry-on luggage.The above airline travel tips will definitely help you prepare yourself well before you finally board a flight to your destination.

Most educational institutions in the United States require students to have at least minimum Health Insurance. As a student, you probably have access to a number of Health Insurance plans offered by your educational institution. Some of these are essentially group Health Insurance plans that offer services through either a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) or a Health Maintenance Organization (PPO). These options are cheaper than if you tried to get individual Student Health Insurance. If your educational institution includes any medical schools or hospitals, plans that use these hospitals may be the cheapest. You may qualify for additional Student Health Insurance discounts if you have an International Student Exchange identity card that you can order online.
For those of you who were covered until going to school under your parents’ Health Insurance, your parents’ employer may continue your benefits for an additional 18 months. Ask your parents to check with their employer about COBRA, as this additional coverage is called. However, this may not be as cheap as campus insurance. Some Student Health Insurance policies cover you during vacations and travel outside the United States, while others do not. Be aware of the conditions not covered under your Student Health Insurance.
Shop around for the best deal, and ask fellow students what type of insurance they have. To help you understand comparisons when you shop for the most affordable Student Health Insurance, you need to understand the basic terminology of Health Insurance. A deductible is how much you pay before your insurance starts paying for your medical care; in general, the higher the deductible, the lower your insurance premium. A co-payment is a fixed amount you pay each time you access services, for example when you get a prescription or have a doctor’s appointment. Coinsurance is the amount you have to pay, after the deductible, for your medical expenses.
