Travel Tips for International Students

Expect the unexpected. Check in for all flights well in advance of departure. If you are planning on spending the night in a hotel, either during transit or upon arrival in Scranton, arrange to have your reservation guaranteed to a credit card in case your flight is delayed and you arrive later than expected.




Contact the airline you will be traveling on to determine the weight/size restrictions and number of pieces of luggage that you can check and carry on board with you. Be sure to label all luggage with your name, address, and telephone number.


Carry the bulk of your money in Travelers Checks. They are safer than cash and convert easily to local currency. Carry some small change in $1 bills, and some quarters, which are useful when you need to make a local telephone call. You may want to bring a telephone calling card with you if you need to call Keystone College.
