The Five Most Essential Phrases In Travel

1. Thank you - shukria\ شکریہ

As a tourist, you will rely on the kindness of strangers to tide over difficulties. Thank them for their kindness and generosity and know how to say "thank you" in Urdu. Trust us, saying thanks will go a long way in this country!

2. Is there a bus from the airport to the city? – Kia Airport sai shehar ki taraf koi bus jati hai? \ کیا ایرپورٹ سے شہر کی طرف کوئی بس جاتی ہے؟

Public transportation is usually cheaper than taking a taxi or hiring a car, but it is slower. Use this phrase to see if you can get where you want to go in a pinch or when you want to follow a scenic route into the city!

3. I have an appointment – Meri appointment hai\ میری ریزرویشن ہے

You can expect to use it at least a few times during the entire trip unless you are the person who sits down and travels and only goes to any available hotel, motel or inn.

4. Is this the correct bus to the airport? – Kia yeh hawai aday ky liye sahih bus hai? \ کیا یہ ہوائی اڈے کے لئے صحیح بس ہے؟

Likewise, if you are the kind of a person who can let yourself move early (or you might have a delayed flight), maybe you want to take a bus instead of a taxi. So, make sure that your direction is correct! You don't want to watch a flight departing from a distance from a lookout point half an hour away, do you?

5. Do you accept credit cards? – Kia aap credit card letay hain? / کیا آپ کریڈٹ کارڈ لیتے ہیں؟

This is another travel phrase that can significantly simplify your currency transactions.
