Travel hacks are my favorite kind of hacks. We all get a little flustered before heading out on a trip; whether it be at an airport, or actually no it’s probably always at the airport. Either way, here are some hacks to help your trip go a little smoother.

  • In the planning stages booking where you stay is the most important thing. While I love a good hotel, my new love has been Airbnb. If you search hard enough you’ll find a perfect place that’s in your price range and makes you feel right at home.

  • Packing can be the most strenuous process of the entire trip. Quickest hack I can give, which many others have as well, roll your clothes. It’s a huge space saver.

This video below has some great hacks for packing:

  • If you’re traveling internationally call your card company to give your dates of travel ahead of time. Don’t save it for the last minute and risk forgetting all together.
  • ALWAYS check in online, you’ll get first dibs on seats and who doesn’t want that?
  • Mark your luggage as fragile. This hack will ensure that your luggage stays at the top and will likely be one of the first bags to be released.

  • Bring your own water bottle, empty of course. Once you’re past security you’ll be able to fill your bottle up with water without having to pay a ridiculous price.

  • Make sure you get to the airport ahead of time, but not too early. You don’t want to be hanging around the airport for more than 2 hours waiting to board. Which will likely be an even longer wait.

More than anything enjoy yourself! While it may be a hassle, there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel, and that would be getting out of the airport.
