  4. 4. Forms • Bring back the Pack of forms to sign as soon as possible so I can get them to the Board of Trustees so we can get the trip signed off. • Please read all the forms carefully so you know what you are signing.
  5. 5. Cell phones • You need to check to see if your phone model works overseas. Just google the make and brand and USA to see if it will work. • If your phone will work you need to set it up to roam ( can be very expensive ) or buy a new sim card when we get there and text your new number home. • If you are roaming – switch off the data and push notifications. • There is free wifi in the accomodation and down the road at starbucks.
  6. 6. Volcano day • If you are going to the volcano you will need walking shoes and a rain coat and small back pack (school bag is fine) • If you are not going to the volcanoes then you will be doing the tour of honolulu then to the aquarium or zoo in the afternoon.
  7. 7. Travel insurance • I will get a quote from the travel agent for travel insurance but please shop around for better deals too. • Remember if you have a medical condition it must be declared or you will not be covered for it and medical care in the USA is VERY EXPENSIVE ! Even if it is just asthma, tell them. • If you are taking an expensive camera or computer then declare that too or it may not be covered.
