Travelling abroad is an exciting experience, especially as you get to travel around unfamiliar locations and immerse yourself within the culture of that country. However, travelling overseas means that there are various practicalities that are completely different to your home country; public holidays, etiquette and business hours will be completely different, which is worth noting! We’ve put together a brief need-to-know guide to traveling to America.
Below are America’s national public holidays, all of which affect transportation and other services, which will operate on a Sunday schedule. Banks, schools and government offices will be closed on public holidays.
Please note that these business hours may vary.
Remember to pack a couple of adaptors for your trip to America; US plug sockets are different from UK plug sockets.
Tipping is not mandatory in the US, although it’s considered frowned upon if you don’t tip, as it is so common. Many restaurants may clearly display a “Service Charge” on the end of the bill; only withhold tips if you receive extremely bad service.
In America, you must drive on the right-hand side of the road as opposed to the left.
