Travel hacks you will definitely appreciate

Greece ● 05 December 2016
 

Travelling does not have to be as complicated as you think. There are always some tricks that will make your life easier. Read in this article some of the smartest travel hacks and enjoy your vacations in Greece.


1. Put underwear and socks in shoes to save space

2. Call your Credit Card Company before travelling abroad, and ask for authorisation for international purchases. The last thing you want is that your card will be reported for suspicious activity, and you don’t have access to your money.

3. When you pack your suitcase, roll your clothes to avoid wrinkles.

4. Use a pill container to sort your jewellery. This is handy especially for earrings.

5. If you drive in a new city and need to remember where you parked, drop a pin on Google Maps or take a photo of the parking space.

6. Do you want to use Google Maps offline? Type “OK Maps” and save the current area for later.

7. Roll up your belt and stick it inside your collar shirt to keep it stiff.

8. Scan your passport and email the document to yourself. Thus, you will have a digital copy in case of loss or theft.

9. To prevent bottles of shampoo or shower gel from leaking inside your luggage, place plastic wrap over the container.

10. If you need only a small amount of lotions or make up, put them in the case of your contact lenses.

11. Keep an empty plastic water bottle and refill it after passing security control instead of buying water at the airport. However, this travel hack is not as useful as you think if you travel in Greece where the bottle of water costs only 0,50€.

12. Get Wi-Fi passwords by checking comments on FourSquare.

13. In your hotel room, remove only the necessary things from your luggage. If you try to make yourself at home by taking out everything, your repacking will be a living hell, and it increases your chances of forgetting something.

14. Prepare a souvenir list and stick to it. This will save you a lot of money.

15.  Wear your heaviest clothes and shoes to save weight.

16. Use a phrase book. You don’t have to be fluent in another language, but a phrase book will help you get around in a country like Greece where English is not the first language.

17. Ask your hotel for a charger. Hotels usually have a stash of forgotten chargers that you can borrow.
