Traveling isn't that easy. You've got to be excited about your dream destination but it is necessary to be fully prepared for your journey. Good thing there are life and travel hacks available for “modern travelers”. Start keeping these on your notes or phone for a quick planning reference.

ROLL CLOTHES
Instead of folding your clothes, roll them into tubes. Not only will this prevent creasing, but you'll find you can fit much more in into your suitcase, as rolled up clothes take up less room.

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

 
DIGITIZE
Create digital backups of all the important documents you'll need for your trip, including passports, any booking confirmations, boarding passes, etc. so you are covered in the event of loss or theft.
 
ADAPTORS
Pack one multi-charge adaptor for all devices instead of several different chargers. If you're travelling abroad, pack an extension card so you can power multiple things at once using one foreign plug adaptor.
 
CHECK WIFI
Spend some time before you leave looking for Wi-Fi hotspots and free Wi-Fi areas. That way you can always get online of your cottage or hotel doesn't have or charges a lot for it.

BOOKING

CREDIT CARDS
