Three International Travel Tips with Award Winning Travel Agent John Davidson from Harvey World Travel of Subiaco

Three International Travel Tips with Award Winning Travel Agent John Davidson from Harvey World Travel of Subiaco, Perth Western Australia.


I travel a lot as an International Business Speaker based in Perth Western Australia so I'm always looking for travel tips.

John Davidson owner of Harvey World Travel of Subiaco (pictured) has been in travel for more than 35 years and knows plenty about business travel.

His business has grown significantly over the past 3 years because of exceptional customer service and in 2011 won an award for Travel Agency of the Year.

John shared with me his top three international travel tips:

1. Have A Valid Passport

Fairly obvious, but if you're like me and you do an enormous amount of travel you chew up the pages with visas and immigration stamps pretty quickly - even if you have a jumbo sized passport!

Make sure your passport has at least six months left and allow a two week turnaround if you need a new passport.

2. Don't No Show

This is quite common amongst corporates, so make sure you cancel or change your ticket prior to the flight. Most times you can change with just a small penalty.

The key is to change prior to the flight.

3. Travel Insurance

It is not expensive and not having it could cost you thousands, especially if travelling internationally. Always go for quality cover.
