Travel to fill your heart, but not with a filled wallet | WB21
“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” - said, Saint Augustine. For travellers around the world, this would sound true as we ourselves know how travel brings a new light to our lives. In a market research conducted by a social website about the happiness quotient in people’s lives, people opened up and expressed their opinion that one reason for lacking happiness was that they live a monotonous life. The principle Wake, work, sleep is now working perfectly on the global population and it makes people feel that they are losing out the excitement of life. Statistics states that 59% of travel-related searches on the internet are coming from those aged between 35 and 64 which denotes at what age people recognise the value of travel in their life.
Why do you travel? is a question regular travellers face from different people that come across their lives. Our life is a journey, people believe; but, nobody accepts the fact that travel is a necessary process in our lives. Even though everyone travels, they fail to understand how valuable it is and they forget to enjoy it as a result. There comes the importance of understanding travel. The purpose of travel differs from person to person. We travel for work, leisure, hobby and so. Long holidays, weekend tours, work-related travel, leisure trips, etc. are some of the various types of travel we see and practice in our everyday life. All these travels come with a purpose of its own and we embrace it for what it delivers. Like many of us believe, travel is not a very complicated thing. This world has people who think I will go on a world tour when I’m a millionaire and people who travel the whole world with a bag, a couple of clothes and a bicycle. About our great travels, we can say, we have seen more than we remember and remember more than we have seen.
THE BENEFITS OF TRAVEL
Travel comes with a lot of benefits and those benefits get associated with us knowingly or unknowingly. The spread of such benefits varies from fun to earning a bun. From each person’s perspective, the benefits and magnitudes can vary. According to Focuswright 2017, 57% of travellers feel that companies should introduce travel plans based on customer preferences or their past behaviours. It proves that people give importance to travel if it can deliver them what they expect from the travel. The top benefits of travel are said to be
- Relieves stress.
- Helps to find peace of mind.
- Enhances social and communication abilities.
- Helps to get creative.
- Broadens our horizons and opens windows to meet new people.
- Helps us to gain real-life experience of different parts of the world.
- Increases confidence and tolerance.
- Creates lifetime memories.
This is why regular travellers say, “One’s destination is never a place, but always a new way of seeing things.”
Nothing in the world comes risk-free. In general, travel too brings some risks. The biggest risk in travelling is about keeping the money safely and transacting it. We have heard hundreds of stories where people getting robbed or cheated during their travel which can be considered financial frauds. It involves crimes from snatching money from someone to online card based frauds. Recently, in an event happened in India, police captured a few people who used to steal people’s money by grabbing their debit card details using an equipment attached to the ATM machines. This shows how risky travel can be when we are in some faraway place and we lose all our money. Many financial companies are putting great amounts of effort into making their accounts and transactions secure. Some key points to remember when making transactions while travelling are
- Keep your money and monetary instruments like cheques, cards, etc. safe are
- Never share your OTP (One Time Password) with anyone.
- Do not ask anyone else to make transactions on behalf of you.
- Be sure that no-one is following you to ATMs, payment centres, etc.
