Save money for the departure tax – International travel tip

Having never traveled to a foreign country, I didn’t realize I had to pay a departure tax when leaving St. Lucia. Check with your travel agent or with the airline before you leave, so you’ll know how much you’re required to pay in taxes and other fees not included with the price of your ticket.

Pro tip: learn the method of payment that’s allowed before reaching the airport. Most places will not accept credit cards.
