Travelling can be quite a stressful business, even if you’re flying at the pointy end of the plane, but there are plenty of ways to enjoy a holiday overseas with greater ease. For a start, if you’re flying long haul, and you’re not flying business or premium economy, make good use of a lineup of disposable products such as facial wipes and toothbrushes and more, so you can freshen up in the comfort of your seat without the need for water. At your destination, as helpful as they can be, make sure you don’t overuse map apps as they can quickly drain your phone’s data if you opt for international roaming. Instead, get a local sim, or make use of free Wi-Fi at a host of venues including local cafes, or your hotel lobby, to look up directions to where you want to you go, and take a screenshot to save for later. We all know you’re meant to take photocopies of your important documents with you when you travel overseas, in case of any mishaps, but rather than printing out dozens of sheets of paper, lighten your load by taking photos of your passport pages, visas and anything else that’s essential, and store them in your smartphone in case you need to call on them. If you fly frequently you might find your luggage goes astray once in a while, so to avoid being completely unprepared if this happens, take all essentials on board with you in a carry on bag such as medications, glasses, contact lenses, important documents, and even a change of clothes if you are likely to be tight on time. If you plan on taking cash with you, or drawing it from an ATM at your destination, divide the money up into smaller batches to use as you need it, and stash one batch somewhere safe as emergency money in case you get into trouble. When it comes to benefiting from travel perks, check out any offerings from the local tourism board to see if there are any discounts or freebies available to tourists at your destination. These can include discounts at restaurants, or for airport transfers or travel on public transport, and free shuttle buses to attractions or shopping malls.
