Before you go

Young man ready to travel to NYBefore leaving, make sure that your passport and flight tickets are packed down, because without those essential travel documents, you’re not going far. Check that you’re travel insurance is valid, since uncovered losses might cause severe disruptions to your NY visit. Try to exchange some money to US Dollars a few days before leaving Britain, but still bring your debit or credit card. Book your hotel in New York at least a few weeks in advance to get the best deal, while theatre tickets and table reservations for top en restaurants also can be good to plan a few weeks in advance. Finally, confirm that a handy travel adapter packed down and a camera to save all those lovely memories you’re getting from NYC.

Travel checklist:
• Confirm the passport is valid (>6 month to expiry date) and flight tickets are printed.
• Get flexible travel insurance in case anything happens (and it will IF you’re not covered).
• Register for ESTA (Electronic System for Authorization) online.
• Decide if you want to do any New York sightseeing in advance and save both money and time by booking online.
• Book transport in UK and when you arrive in New York; limo, taxi or shuttle?
• Exchange to local currency (eg. US Dollar).
• Have you booked hotel in NY?
• Complete table reservation for top restaurant.
