Every new vacation is a new adventure, and it’s not just about the journey but the trip as well. The joy of having new adventures can be overwhelmed by stress along the ride. So in order to take your traveling trip to a whole new level, we’ve compiled some top secret travel hacks no one tells you every day.
If you ever tried to refresh the booking page to see if you can get cheaper flight tickets; STOP NOW.
Ever occurred to you that the reason it goes even higher is actually you?!
All travel and airline websites use track cookies that hike up prices based on your ID activity on the site.
The one way to avoid site from exploiting you is to book the tickets on the private mode of your browser (incognito)
#2 Become a member of TSA Precheck or Global Entry
What are these? Only be signing up for one of these programs you get to keep your belt, shoes, and jacket on and also gives you access to express lines for 5 years.
The sign up for each site requires a personal interview and some paperwork. You’ll pay 85$ at TSA to enjoy those privileges while Precheck costs 100$ because it applies to international travel.
Go in SeatGuru, type whichever flight number and airline you like. You’ll see the layout of your plane along with other customers’ reviews of their experience with the flight, seats, and services.
You can get help from other users on how to choose the best seat for a leg room and power jacks on a particular plane.
4# Always travel with WiFi
Pay a monthly subscription 5$ to benefit from online access to 30+ airports and is wide enough to provide service in 1,300 places like hotels, cafes, even public places.
Don’t want a subscription? Try mobile hot spots, Skyroam is a perfect choice. It costs $10 a day and provides unlimited service wherever you go.
5# Roll your clothes
As mentioned before at our travel suitcase packing, roll your clothes when packing your bags to make extra capacity for more stuff.
6# Mark your baggage as fragile
One of the little travel hacks I learned not too long ago from a traveling friend. If you mark your baggage as fragile it’ll be handled very softly, kept at top of the other bags, and finally come out at the first stage so you won’t wait long.
Scan your passport, ID card, and any other important papers you don’t want to lose while traveling and email them to yourself. This way you have an extra copy of each paper for any possible accidents like paper lost or phone theft.
We hope our list of travel hacks have inspired you.
