Free Udemy Course on Transit & Transportation Topics for International Travelers
April 27, 2016

You’ve chosen your destination, purchased your plane tickets, planned your itinerary and packed your bags. Now you are ready for your actual journey to begin! First things first: you’ve got to somehow get from point A (your home) to point B (your destination), usually by plane. Then, when you land, you have to find local ways to get around: subways, rental cars, tuk-tuks…you’ve got options!

In this course, you will learn about topics relevant to transit and modes of transportation. The first half of this course covers air travel from the perspective of a U.S. citizen departing for their trip. This course assumes that you have likely traveled domestically within the U.S. before and does not detail procedural issues like how to check in, board or stay comfortable in-flight. Rather, in this course we want to provide you with insight into the process of flying that you may not already know, including the TSA Cares program, TSA notification cards, TSA Pre-Check and the Known Traveler Number (KTN).

The second half of this course covers travel by other modes which you might utilize when you arrive in your destination country. Associated topics include International Driving Permits, renting cars abroad, subways and more.

No prior travel knowledge is required!

  17. Considerations to give thought to regarding renting a car overseas, including safety, insurance and more
  18. Advice for ensuring your safety when taking a taxi abroad, including how to avoid paying more than you owe

Two final very important points:

  • This course assumes students already have a basic knowledge of flying from destinations in the U.S. and does not cover matters of buying tickets, checking in luggage or getting comfortable on planes.
  • This course can be taken by anyone, but it was made with an intent of a U.S. audience and spends considerable time covering issues related to the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (U.S. TSA).
