Here are five habits you need to get rid of very fast, if you want to be great company to travel with.

1. Being a whiner:

Of course there'd be minor discomforts; waiters may bring you the wrong meal, the transportation system might be a little uncomfortable etc.

These things happen, and they are part of your travel experience, so there's really no need for you to keep complaining about it at every chance you get.

2. Being unprepared at the security check:

Don't be that annoying person who holds up the queue at the airport security check. Make sure you are well prepared before the line gets to you.

You should probably take time to reduce the metal object you have on you so that the metal detector does not keep beeping multiple times when you're being passed through.

There's no need for you to adorn yourself with heavy metal bracelets and studs when you're about to embark on a long flight.

3. Nagging about the itinerary:

So let's say you and your friends planned to leave Budapest on Friday, but they want to stay an extra night, there is no need to throw a fit and start hammering on how the plans have changed.

Some of the best parts of travel adventures are the last minute detours that were not included in the original plans.

4. Being disrespectful of the culture:

If you wrap a scarf around your head and shoulders, you won't die. Don't be that girl who wants to make a point by going around with uncovered hair and arms in a clearly conservative country.

There's no need to prove to yourself how backward you think Dubai is by engaging in public displays of affection when it is clearly prohibited in the country.

5. Getting too drunk on the first night:

If you're going to get really drunk on the first night and spend the next few days nursing a hangover, you might have as well just stayed back at home.
