Travelling is always a nightmare for many. As a modern day traveller, one must know how to travel peacefully to get a nice holiday.
This means one must have knowledge of how to pack the luggage without getting bothered with it making your mobility accessible. Gadgets help us a lot, and for some of us it’s a necessity to carry around, but what happens when the internet connection is limited or is not even there? So here I have some top life hacks for you that will help you in travelling easily whether you travel by land, sea or air.
Instead of folding your clothes, roll then into long tubes. Not only will this prevent creasing, but you’ll find you can fit much more into your suitcase, as rolled up clothes take up less room.
Pro Tip: Socks can be rolled into balls and then placed inside shoes for extra space saving.
Create digital backups of all the important documents you’ll need for your trip, including passports, any booking confirmations, boarding passes, etc. so you’re covered in the event of loss or theft.
Pack one multi-charge adapter for all devices instead of several different chargers. If you’re travelling abroad, pack an extension cord so you can power multiple things at once using one foreign plug adaptor.
Pro Tip: Most modern TV’s have USB ports in the back, ideal if you forget your charger plug.
Spend some time before you leave looking for WI-FI hotspots and free WI-FI areas. That way you can always get online if your hotel or cottage doesn’t have a WI-FI, or charges a lot for it.
Before you head off, use Foursquare to find wireless passwords for all the different Wi-Fi spots you find. People continually list passwords on travel sites like this, making your life much easier when you arrive.
When you’re booking online, whether it’s flight, cruise, hotel or something else, clear your browser cache or use an anonymous browser window. Booking sites will often raise their prices if they know you’ve been there before.
If you’re travelling internationally, or you’re going to be far from home for a long period, call your credit card company and let them know. This way they won’t think your card has been stolen and won’t cancel it on you.
