All the important details to remember before you take off overseas
  1. Call your credit card companies letting them know where you are going
  2. Call your bank informing them of where you are going and increase your withdrawal limit so you can take out more each time you visit an ATM
  3. Make copies of docs like your passport, ids and credit cards and give them to someone you trust in case yours are lost while traveling
  4. Pay as many bills as you can - you want to avoid having to log into your accounts as much as possible while abroad
  5. Put a hold on your mail or have someone pick it up so that it doesn't pile up and make it obvious you are out of town
  6. Make a list of all of your confirmation numbers along the way - hotels, flights, care rentals, etc.
  7. Create an outgoing voicemail message so people know why you aren't calling them back
