# "booking" and "reservation"
--to book a flight / a hotel room
--to make a booking with a travel agency, or with a hotel, with accommodations (types of accommodations: hotel, motel, hostel, B&B, bed and breakfast. Make sure you have a booking before you go, so your place is safe, it's kept for you. When you arrive, it's all good.)
# before "boarding"
--"check-in baggage": you give it to the airline, they put it under the plane, you pick it up at your destination.
--"carry-on baggage": you carry it on to the plane.
--a boarding pass: that lets you pass through security and into the airport. On the boarding pass, you will see your "boarding time," this is when you get on the plane and your "boarding gate," the place in the airport where you're going to get on your plane before takeoff.
--a "visa": something that you use to get into a country; it gives you permission to stay in that country.
--a different "currency" (a different type of money)
# when you're at your destination
--you might want to "rent" or "hire" a car. (This is "accommodation," without the "s"; "accommodation" means something different. "Accommodations" is where you're going to sleep.)
