Whether you’re new to traveling or have spent your entire life exploring foreign locales, simply continue reading to discover a few travel tips which may make traveling from a to b a little easier.
Travel Tips for First Time Travelers and Seasoned Adventurers:
1. Make sure to carry a rechargeable battery pack on you, at all times
If you rely on your smartphone for storing your travel information such as your hotel bookings and plane tickets, it’s well worth making sure that you always have a pre-charged rechargeable battery pack with you, at all times. Thankfully rechargeable battery packs are fairly inexpensive to purchase.
2. If you enjoy camping, make sure to purchase a solar-powered rechargeable battery pack
If you enjoy camping when you travel or spend a lot of time taking part in exciting outdoor pursuits such as hiking, you may want to opt to purchase a solar-powered rechargeable battery pack which you’ll be able to clip on to your backpack or your tent.
3. Don’t bother packing a spare change of clothes in your carry on
While in the past travelers would often pack a spare outfit in their carry on luggage, the reality is that most airports offer inexpensive stores where you’ll be able to purchase a spare change of clothes in the rare event that your airline loses your checked in luggage!
As a bonus, you’ll find it far easier to keep your carry on bag organized, if you don’t have bulky items such as clothes taking up unnecessary safe in your carry on bag.
4. Remember to spend all your leftover coins before you leave a foreign country which you rarely visit
While you may choose to keep notes with a high denomination for a future trip or to exchange for your home currency, you’re probably best of spending all of your coins before you leave a foreign country.
As an example, you may want to purchase a few small souvenirs for your loved ones back home, when you’re passing through duty-free. Or you may want to use your coins to purchase a drink or a bite to eat at your terminal.
5. Always travel with a sleeping bag liner
If you find yourself staying at a hotel which has dirty sheets that you don’t want to lie on, you’ll find being able to sleep on a clean silk sleeping bag liner a lifesaver. Better yet sleeping bag liners are thin and take up little space in your suitcase.
6. Purchase water at airports to take on your long-haul flights
While most airlines offer free water, once you’ve drunk the free bottle of water which you’ll normally find on your chair, you’ll have to hail down a flight attendant in order to get a cup of water. Which can be difficult, especially when the lights are out and your fellow travelers are sleeping and flight attendants decrease the amount of time which they spend walking through your cabin, in an effort not to disturb passengers.
