Travel Hacks



We all know that traveling, as exciting as it is supposed to be, can also be stressful and difficult.  Being in the travel industry we deal with individuals on the go every day, and we have seen the right way to travel, and the very wrong way.  Below are some helpful travel hacks and tips collected from some of our more experienced clients.


Packing can be one of the most complicated elements of traveling, but it does not have to be.  If you pack heavily try rolling your cloths to save space, or try stuffing socks and underwear into your shoes to maximize the room in your bags.  To keep your cloths smelling fresh and clean place a dryer sheet in your suitcase, this will also help reduce static.  When you go to unpack do you often find your cloths get wrinkled no matter how neatly you fold them?  Try packing them in tissue paper to reduce wrinkling.  If you’re not traveling with a garment bag place a belt in the collar of your dress shirts to keep it strait.  For toiletries refill travel sized containers instead of buying new ones every time or fill straws with shampoos, toothpaste and sunscreen to be extra economical.


When booking flights or hotel reservations make sure you do this way in advance, this will get you the best rates as pricing, especially for airlines, increases as the seats begin to fill up.  Also when booking online be sure to enable private browsing as travel sites track your visits and will often raise the rates just because they see you have visited the site before.  When traveling to the airport use a car service, it will alleviate the pressure of timing and take away the anxiety of potentially missing that flight, also depending on the length of your trip and the amount of people you are traveling with taking a car service can often times be more cost effective that parking your car at the airport.


Ultimately when travelling, especially when vacationing, make sure you make the most of it.  The tips above should help with some of the more difficult aspects of travel.  Think out side the box when packing and follow our advice, these tricks work.  Reserve smart, give yourself plenty of time and save yourself some money.  We hope these travel hacks help, God Speed!
