Travel logistics, in general, can be a major source of stress while on vacation. It’s when we’re rushing through airports, out of hotel rooms, or off to a dinner reservation that things get overlooked or lost. The easiest antidote, which is challenging when you’re in transit, is to simply slow down. Taking the extra few minutes (that you usually don’t want to spare) will help you keep everything organized on the road. There’s no reason to check out of a hotel room, finish packing, search for your travel documents, and call an Uber all at the same time. Focus on one thing at a time and give yourself room to breathe instead of over-scheduling, and you’ll ultimately avoid some of the classic mistakes travelers make.

With Shank’s invaluable advice, we’ve outlined the 10 biggest mistakes to avoid when checking in and out of your hotel.
