Checklist for at home

Are you planning on leaving your house empty for a while? Don’t forget your plants will need water, make sure you’ve gotten rid of the garbage. The fridge/freezer should be empty (turn it off and leave the door open a little to prevent fungus), make sure someone is taking care of your pets, someone takes care of your mail, and hide important (expensive) possessions (not in your home? maybe in your parents’ home?). Keep in mind that if you leave the Netherlands in the winter, that you turn the heat up above the freezing point so your pipes don’t freeze. Also, check to see if you pulled all of the plugs out of the wall (to prevent short circuits!).

 

Also, remember to make a list for the people staying home with all the important information regarding your trip- your phone number/email address, travel agency, alarm numbers and other things, such as a copy of your passport, plane ticket(s), debit/credit card and driver’s license.

Important files/papers

 

Make copies of your passport, (international) drivers license, traveler’s cheques, debit/credit card, diploma and most importantly your ticket(s). Preferably, scan them in and mail them to yourself, then you always have them handy if you need them, especially if your papers get stolen or you lose them. This way you’ll always have proof in copy form or a scan.

 

When you’re taking expensive things with you on your trip, in some cases, it might be smart to bring papers that prove you own the items. If you’re unlucky, they’ll stop you in the Netherlands, and they’ll make you pay import tax. If you can prove you owned it before departure then there is no problem.
