15 Travel Tips You Should Know

Who doesn’t love some great travel tips and tricks?  This is the list list of  top travel hacks and tips to make your next trip a little easier. Travel Tips You Should Know:

1.Forgot the wall plug for your charger? Use the USB port on the hotel TV or computer to charge your phone. Most modern TVs have a USB connector on the back or side.

2.Make photos of your travel documents or scan them and email to yourself.

3.Check with your credit card company before foreign travel to be sure they do not charge foreign transaction fees, also a good idea to alert them you will be traveling so they do not block your charges.

4.Pack a potholder to store your curling or flat iron in to protect the clothes in your suitcase.

5.Find free Wi-Fi with the four-square app.

6.Sign up for hotel and airline rewards clubs. Those points add up and can be cashed in for free rooms or flights.

7.When you’re driving in a new city and need to remember where you parked, drop a pin on Google Maps or take a picture of the parking space with your phone.

8.To use Google Maps offline, type “ok maps” and the current area on your phone will save for later

9.If you’re heading to a theme park or the beach, put your phone in a plastic bag to prevent it from getting wet. Don’t forget sand can also damage your phone

10.Instead of a hotel, look into reserving a home if traveling with a family or group, or a single room if alone. Websites like Home away, VRBO, and Airbnb can provide homes and private rooms, usually offering better prices and accommodations than hotels.

11.ATMs always dispense local currency so use your debit or credit card and get your money there. If you use the money converters in the airport they can come with high fees and the exchange rates are a rip-off.

12.Use your flat iron instead of an iron and ironing board to touch up your clothes or pack a small bottle of wrinkle release spray and spritz your clothes as soon as you unpack

13.Empty a Chapstick tube and insert rolled money into it and keep in your pocket in case you lose your bag, or it is stolen

14.Hang a shoe organizer over the back of your seat to keep the little ones entertained. Fill the pockets withl toys, snacks, juice boxes, games or other fun things to keep them busy.

15.When traveling with a baby order diapers online and ship to your destination.
