Traveling can be fun, but it can also come with some stress. I have compiled a list of some travel hacks and tips that I find helpful when traveling, especially trips that involve flying far away from home. I hope these travel hacks help you to enjoy your travel adventures, whether near or far!

1. Scan Important Documents

It is always a good idea to have multiple copies of important documents, such as passport, photo ID, visas, hotel confirmations, driver’s license, etc. Scan or photograph copies of these important documents and store them in the cloud for quick access. You could also opt to e-mail the files to yourself, a family member, or friend. The goal here is to have quick accessibility to the files in case of an emergency.

2. Avoid A Leaky Mess

If you are afraid of your liquids spilling or leaking all over your clothes and in your suitcase, try this travel hack! All you need is some saran wrap! Put some plastic wrap over the openings of the bottle, replace the tops, and you are done! For added security, place the bottles in a plastic bag. You will have to do this anyway if you are checking your bags 😉

3. Call Your Credit Card Company

Don’t risk your credit card being declined or blocked! Before departing for your trip, call your credit and debit care company to inform them the dates you will be gone and the location of your trip.

4. Have Your Paperwork Accessible

As mentioned above, it’s important to have copies of your important documents. There is the chance you will not have access to WIFI or encounter poor cellular service, limiting your ability to access documents online. To prevent this from happening, bring a paper copy with you and/or screenshot your documents so they can be accessed offline!

5. Wear Your Heaviest Clothing

If limited luggage space is a concern, there are multiple ways to address this issue. You can try packing cubes to help with organization. A great space saver is rolling your clothes. Wearing that bulky sweater or heavy jacket can also help save luggage space for those wanted souvenirs and extra items.

6. Carry The Essentials

There’s always that risk of lost luggage. Carry on all the important documents, medications, and must have items in the case your luggage got lost in transit. Just remember: pack what you need in your carry-on bag in case your checked bag arrives late!

7. Spread The Wealth

Don’t keep all your money in one place. If you were to lose said item, you would be out of luck. Find multiple spots for your cash – just remember where all the hiding spots are located so you can come back to them later!

8. Bring An Empty Bottle

I don’t like paying for water. I think it’s silly. Water is expensive in the airport. Bring an empty bottle and fill it up at the water fountain after you get through security.

9. A Map Alternative

If you don’t want to look like a tourist, make sure to download the google maps of your neighborhood so you can access it offline! No need to carry around a map and travel guide.

10. Look Out For TV Sets

Forget to bring your charger or adapter? Many TV sets have USB ports so that you can easily charge your electronic devices. Many hotels will also have some spare chargers if you ask 🤞

Let me know your thoughts! 👇 Do you have any other travel hacks that you think should be included?! 😃

Until next time!
