No matter what type of traveller you are or how frequently you travel, simple travel hacks make life a lot easier and put you on the path toward efficient and expert traveller status. Packing your stuff like a pro and knowing about your rights within flight cancellation compensation eu puts you on the map as a traveller with things under control.
Toiletries and other travel essentials can feel laborious to pack again and again. Instead of gathering several small things you need for each trip, prepack a few of your “must-haves” into an accessible bag or pack that you grab before each flight.
Keep your “spontaneity bag” in the same place, so when it’s time to go further afield, you can just grab and go. This makes packing the rest of your things so much easier and faster.
When it comes to packing clothes hacks, rolling clothes is something some travellers do. However, it’s not the only way to save space or keep clothes wrinkle-free. Kate McPherson, director of Utah Valley University’s Honors Program, habitually travels from the US to the UK for conferences and study abroad programs. She swears by this travel strategy and says that bundling saves time. It helps keep clothing ready for whatever adventure or meeting you may (or may not) have scheduled.
This intersectional approach to packing clothes is the ultimate space saver. Laura Sinberg and Joel Holland visually outline this simple step-by-step bundling process in Real Simple, because it really is that simple.
An aircraft’s less than awesome pressurised cabin wreaks havoc on the eyes. Utilising an eye spray makes all the difference.

There are several options for light-weight portable chargers which are imperative to travel success.

Stow essential chargers, cables, and small electronics in one convenient pouch to make the most of packing space and time. When it comes to strategic packing, you could, for example, re-appropriate an old toiletry bag or use something smaller like a zip-up bag. Convert that into an electronics pouch for more seamless travel. You’ll have all those items in one place and won’t have to fish through multiple pockets in your luggage to find what you’re looking for. In that way you can also quickly get your set-up working at your destination, so you can claim your eu flight compensation, if your flight was delayed or cancelled.
We all know that even in the most populated and seemingly connected places, fluid connectivity can be an obstacle. If you’re going somewhere new, pre-download a city or area map with HERE WeGo, which allows access to addresses and maps without the internet.
