When you decide to travel abroad it is a good idea to do your own search or if you have a travel agent that you can trust you can let them do the travel search for you.  Finding cheap flights to your destination is one of the first steps in the planning process.

But keep in mind it is better that you have your request and questions already sorted out before booking, like how much do you want to spend on this trip and how to find the cheapest airline or travel packages. Also think about the country you are visiting the cost of living in that country according to your budget.

The weather is very important for example if you like skiing you might need to go to place with good skiing resort and if you are looking to travel to a tropical country or island you need to check the weather in that place.

Language is important to some people, like some travelers like to speak the language and they feel comfortable doing so. Also some people would like to learn the basic language of that country just to get by when they are traveling abroad. A survival kit would be a great idea.

Try to know as much as you can about the country you are traveling to so that you won’t get disappointed.

Hotels can vary in price and some small hotels are cheap but they do not advertise a lot. The big hotels advertise and have websites that you can check and might be able to book online. Try to find out the location of that hotel and if that suits you or not. For example if you want to spend your time on the beach you might want to consider a hotel near the beach, etc.

Transportation are important and you need to think about your moving around in that country, if you like driving may be you can hire a car, or if you like trains then you can check the public transportation there.

Plan your trip ahead because there are high seasons and there are low seasons. Low seasons when there are few travelers and normally cheaper in price and you might get good deals. High season when many people want to travel and it would be higher price and you need to book in advance.

Finally, make your own search about traveling to your destination and get as much information about that place as you can, like maps, tips, websites, etc. It can be a great help to you. You can get all that information from the internet or by contacting your travel agent or agency.

Check the geography of that place, like do you want to travel to the neighboring countries or not.
