Life hacks for the modern traveler

Traveling is still a nightmare for many. As a modern traveler, one must know how to travel in peace to have a beautiful holiday. This means that one must be aware of how to pack luggage without realizing that it makes your mobility accessible. Gadgets help us a lot, and for some of us it’s a necessity to crack, but what happens when the internet connection is limited or not at all? So here I have some superior life cycle for you that will help you in easy journey whether you travel by land, sea or air.

Roll Clothes

Instead of folding the clothes, wrap them in long tubes. Not only will these prevent you from growing, but you’ll also find you can put a lot more in your luggage, as worn clothes take up less space.

Pro Tip: Socks can be rolled into balls and then placed in shoes for extra space savings.


Create a digital backup of all the important documents you’ll need for your trip, including passports, any booking confirmations, registration cards, etc., so they are covered in case of loss or theft.


Pack a multi-charge adapter for all devices instead of several different chargers. If traveling outdoors, pack an extension cord so you can power several things around using an adapter for foreign plugs.

Pro Tip: Most modern TVs have the USB port on the back, ideal if you forget your plug.

Check the WI-FI

Spend some time before leaving the search for WI-FI hotspots and free WI-FI spaces. This way you can always get online if your hotel or home doesn’t have a WI-FI, or charge a lot for it.


Before giving up, use Foursquare to find wireless passwords for all the different Wi-Fi hotspots you find. People are constantly listing passwords on travel sites like this, making your life a lot easier when you arrive.


When booking online, be it a flight, cruise, hotel or anything else, clear your browser’s cache or use an anonymous browser window. Booking sites often increase their prices if they know you’ve been there before.

Credit card

If you are traveling internationally, or you are away from home for a long period of time, call your credit card company and let us know. This way they don’t think your card has been stolen and they won’t cancel it.

If you follow these tips, you can easily get through your worries while traveling and enjoy your holidays in peace.
