After many years of travelling by plane, train, car and motor coach, we’ve learned a trick or two to make travel smoother.
We’re happy to share these tips with you.
Whether you travel alone, as a couple or family, multigenerational group or with a group of friends, the tips I am about to share should work for you.
Heading to a warm beach location? Head to the dollar store at home before you go. Get a package of those colourful large clips and use them to hold your towels down and to make it easier to spot which chairs are yours.
While you are there, grab some inexpensive beach toys that you won’t mind leaving behind for someone else to enjoy. This also frees up room for those souvenirs!
Staying in a hotel? along with an adapter or convertor if necessary, pack a basic extension cord. Hotel rooms never have enough plugs for everyone now that we carry so many electronics.
If you’re travelling with others, try putting a few items in one of your travelling companions’ pieces of luggage and vice versa. In the event that your luggage is delayed or lost, at least you will have something (especially your own underwear) to change into in the short term.
Taking a bit of time to plan before you go can make any trip no matter how short or long, a success.
