  • Travel USA is a domestic version of World Travel 101 . Just like WT101, the purpose of this presentation is NOT to provide an encyclopedia of travel information . Particularly with the internet, information changes too rapidly for a presentation like this to stay current if it is too detailed. Rather, this tool provides a structured format for HI-USA volunteers to use to introduce respectful budget travel and hostelling to future travelers. This slide allows for a quick overview of the presentation content. Tailor the notes below to reflect what you will cover; this includes all subjects. Italicized text = speaker’s instructions. Regular text = talking points. Be sure to introduce yourself and your connection to HI-USA . Introduction to Hostelling International Responsible Travel = Respectful + Knowledgeable (= Culturally Sensitive) Money Packing Travel Documents Transportation Lodging Health & Safety Resources
