Travelling can be quite a stressful business these days, even if you’re flying at the pointy end of the plane, but there are plenty of ways to enjoy your 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 so you can freshen up in your seat without the need for water. At your destination, as helpful as they are, make sure you don’t overuse map apps as they can quickly drain your phone’s data. Instead, make use of free Wi-Fi at venues including local cafes, or your hotel lobby, to look up directions to where you want to you go, then take a screenshot and save so you can call on it 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, take photos of your passport pages, visas and anything else that’s essential, and store them in your smartphone in case you need them. If you fly frequently you might find your luggage goes astray once in a while. To avoid being completely unprepared when this happens, take essentials on board in your 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 to serve 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.
