10 Travel Hacks That Will Make Your Life Easier

Travelling is exciting but packing, waiting and getting through the airport security is certainly not. Especially on days where lady luck isn’t favouring you, chances are you might end up losing your luggage, spilling liquid in your suitcase or worse, waiting in long queues at the check-in counter.

Here are 10 tried-tested-and-approved travel tips that will make your travelling easier.

1. Check-in online

Most airline companies now let you check in online 24 hours before your flight. This one little step can save you about an hour at the airport - especially if you aren’t checking baggage.

2. Keep a digital copy

Scan your passport, ID, and itinerary and email it to yourself so you have a digital copy in the event of loss or theft.

3. Check your flight status

No need to bug the airline customer service centre. You can Google your airline name and flight number to check the status of your flight.

4. Avoid black suitcases

Show some colour love and choose anything other than black because a majority of people prefer carrying black suitcases.

5. Layer

Wearing layers of clothes is one way to carry more luggage and avoid the weather effect when you land in a foreign country. Throw in a scarf, shawl or jacket that’s easy to carry and chic-looking too.

6. Pack wisely

Be it your jewellery, travel-size makeup or just hair accessories – store them in small pill containers to avoid tangled messes.

7. Wear a jacket with deep pockets

Jackets are ideal; you can bulk them up with small carry-on items. They will also prevent you from digging in your bag for your phone, wallet, boarding pass etc.

8. Power cords & earphones

Store your tangled power cords in an old sunglass case. It’ll keep you from losing your mind. We promise.

9. Roll, don’t fold

One rule of thumb when packing clothes is to roll them. This way you can save space and avoid wrinkles.

10. Use grab bags

For someone carrying liquid makeup or toiletries, grab bags are life savers. They are waterproof and zip locked so in case you spill some liquid, it won’t spread to your clothes.
