Who doesn’t love to travel? Of course, some aspects of traveling can be a pain. From packing your luggage to paying high prices for water, you may start to dread traveling. Instead, why not try some of these travel hacks.
Roll Your Clothes
To get the most space from your luggage, roll your clothing. You can also stuff your socks into your shoes to save space. Rolling your clothing can also help prevent wrinkles. If you want to avoid having checked luggage, consider piling on the layers.
Take Advantage of the Extra Bag When Flying
You not only get to bring a piece of carry on luggage, but you can also bring a purse, laptop case, tote bag, etc. Use this to your advantage. It’s always best to avoid checked luggage whenever possible. After all, who wants to deal with filing a lost luggage claim not to mention paying for a bag if your airline charges for a checked bag?
Travel Last Minute
Want to save big? If you’re willing to travel anywhere at the last minute, you can save a lot of money. Last minute cancellations, unsold seats, etc. can be much less expensive. Travel agencies may even have an awesome package for a fraction of the cost.
Skip the Soap and Shampoo
Most hotels offer soap and shampoo to guests. Why waste space in your luggage and risk spills when these items are available to you? Even basic hotels offer these items. You can even ask for more if you run out.
Find WiFi Passwords Through FourSquare
FourSquare has a section that offers tips. Under this tips section you can find wifi passwords for restaurants, hotels, and more. If you want to be able to go online without paying a ridiculous fee, this is a must use travel hack.
Bring an Empty Water Bottle
No one wants to pay $4 for a bottle of water. Bring an empty water bottle and then fill it after passing through security. Not only will you be able to enjoy water on the plane, but you’ll also be able to refill the bottle at your travel destination. Don’t be the tourist that pays a fortune for multiple bottles of water.
Hit Grocery Stores Rather Than Vending Machines
Last, but not least, hit grocery stores rather than vending machines. Even going to a convenience store can be less expensive than a vending machine. If you didn’t have the option to bring snacks with you, find a grocery store to stock your hotel room.
These travel hacks will make your vacation easier and much more affordable.
