Whether you’re travelling for the holidays, business or just because, there can be no doubt about it: travelling can be a gigantic pain in the you-know-what. But, if you have a few tricks up your sleeves, ones that have been used to great effect by veteran travelers all over the world, then you’ll find the whole experience of getting from point A to point B much easier. So, take a look at these 29 travel hacks, and see if you can’t incorporate a few into your itinerary.
1) Roll Your Clothes
It’s one of the oldest tricks in the book, but it bears repeating. If you’re looking to conserve space in your luggage, then roll up your clothes rather than folding them flat. You’ll be surprised by how much more you can pack in!
2) Pack a Dryer Sheet
Have you ever noticed that your clothes don’t smell right once you open up your luggage? If you pack a dryer sheet in with your clothing, they’ll smell so fresh and so clean once you arrive.
3) Use Private Mode
All of those sites that you use to get deals on travel are snooping your Internet history, your location, and even your frequency of visits. With that information they’re driving up the prices they offer. Stop them by putting your browser in private mode.
4) Make Your Luggage Stand Out
If you’ve got some generic-looking luggage, then put a bow or ribbon around one of the handles. It’ll make it much easier to spot when it comes down the conveyor in the baggage claim.
