These Free Travel Cards Help You Communicate Easier & Quicker When Travelling

The Zafigo Travel Cards are to help make communication easier when in a foreign country

Sometimes it’s difficult to communicate when we’re travelling and we don’t speak the local language.

How do we ask where the toilet is? How do we order chicken? How do we say we are vegetarian? How do we say “no pork” please or ask if the place is Halal? How do we say we are not feeling well? For women especially, how do we ask where we can get the necessities we need? One way is to use hand gestures, and if that doesn’t work, to draw something.

The Zafigo team has come up with a bunch of travel cards to let you communicate easier even without words, that you can save on your phone or print them out and carry around with you when you’re travelling, and it’s completely free!

Here are a couple of examples:

The male and female stick figures are universally known symbols for male and female washrooms. By showing this card to one of the non-English speaking locals, they should be able to understand what you’re looking for and point you in the right direction hence, preventing a potentially messy situation.

Looking to dine in a restaurant but want to inquire if it is pork free/Halal first? One of these cards could come in handy. The Halal symbol is also universally recognised and if the person you’re speaking to does not speak the same language as you, it would be easier to just show them this picture instead of wasting time explaining yourself.
