Check they know what skills and equipment they’ll need

Depending on your client’s trip, there’s probably some prep that’s not optional. or that you need to strongly advise on. For instance, if they’re going on a multi-day hike in the Himalayas, they need to be physically fit enough to complete back-to-back hikes with a full pack.

Some prep might be less vital but still worthy. Clients going on a safari might think their iPhone camera is good enough, but they’ll kick themselves for not getting a solid DSLR. Why not let them know about the latest cameras?
