10 THINGS TO DO AFTER A TRIP

  1. Check your bank and credit card statements for things like double charges, missing refund credits or spending that you didn't authorize. Report any issues to your bank or credit card company immediately.

  2. Turn off the international package on your cell phone.

  3. Deal with your email.  Don't forget to turn off your "out of office" messages.

  4. Take care of your body. Drink lots of water and eat fresh fruits and salads.

  5. Sort and caption your pictures while your memories are still fresh.

  6. Check your loyalty programs. Make sure you've received the miles or points you're entitled to. Hold onto your hotel receipts and/or boarding passes until you're sure your account has been properly credited.

  7. Make insurance claims.  There are often time limits in the fine print of your policy, and if you wait too long you may be ineligible for coverage.

  8. Before your memories fade, make a donation, seek out a volunteer program or find some other way to turn your inspirational travel activities into action.

  9. Post photos and reviews of your experiences with other travelers on social media.

  10. Start planning your next trip.  It is never too early to start dreaming about your next journey.
