travel the smart way
Lets go on an adventure! Lets go on a vacation! Lets go somewhere new today! As rightly said by someone
The world is a book and those who dont travel read only a page...
Most of us love travelling be it alone or with our family or friends and if not travelling we do love to discover a new place which can only be done by travelling to new places.
Now, all of us reading this would be like Hell yeah! We all love to travel! But we aren't Bill Gates, Ambani or Narendra Modi to travel as much as we like, we have a limited monthly salary as well as only a few holidays
The holidays cannot be increased by anyone else apart from your boss or by you if you change your job but what youll get to know after reading this blog are a few travel hacks which will save your money, time and give us a way better experience of travelling anywhere!
Search for tickets in private/incognito mode - So before going to the place weve decided to go to we need to decide the mode of transport that we are going to take, now theres a hack here whenever we are looking up online for tickets of any kind of transport be it flight tickets, bus tickets or of any other sort we must search for it on various sites using PRIVATE or INCOGNITO mode or just clear the cache, reason being the site can check our past few searches and increase the prices of the searched mode of transport
When reserving seats for two people, choose the aisle and window seats -
Once weve decided the flight and now its time for us to book the seats if we are early enough we can book the seats we like but how about getting an extra seat for every two seats that too without using any coupon or promo code? When reserving seats for two people, choose the aisle and window seats, If no one takes the middle seat, then you get the full row, and if someone does, then just ask to switch seats so you can sit next to your partner. In this way we may get an extra seat absolutely FREE!!
Wrap headphones around a binder clip to prevent them from tangling
Put the chargers inside a goggles case
A binder clip can even be put around a razor while packing it so that the razor does not damage any of the luggages.
On Airports we all get free wi fi but after a while it becomes really slow so to get access to the fast premium wifi of the airport just add ?.jpg at the end of the link and voila!
If you wish to carry any kind of liquids with you in the flight just Freeze it as you can carry the liquid if its in rock solid form
Pack your own snacks while travelling as the snacks on the airport are overpriced
Carry a power bank in case you have really long flight and need to contact someone as soon as you arrive at the airport
Carry an empty water bottle with you to the airport so that you can fill it once you have crossed the security as even water is highly overpriced on airports
If your flight gets delayed instead of sleeping on chairs or the lobby one can enter the airports sleeping pods or lounge so as to rest properly take a shower etc.
Hit the gym before entering your flight this will allow you to easily sleep during the flight
Sign up for a TSA precheck or Global Entry this will allow you to skip the long queues
For people having spectacles wear them instead of lens as during the flight lens tend to make the eyes dry
Always carry a sweater or jacket to the airport as it is always cold on airports
Always Check airport realtime conditions it allows you to know whether the flights are delayed or cancelled
Download offline google maps
Not all flights would be having an in flight entertainment or a television set so its necessary for one to carry his own source of entertainment which could be a book, laptop, iPod etc now along with these what we already do have is our smart phones and to use see movies in it we would be requiring earphones/headphones as well as its chargers which often tend to tangle in itself so we can wrap headphones around a binder clip to prevent them from tangling and put the chargers inside a goggles case. A binder clip can even be put around a razor while packing it so that the razor does not damage any of the luggages.
We all need to reach the airport 3 hours before the departure and have a flight also for a decent duration the time in which we all start getting hungry as well as thirsty, the food on the airport is way expensive so its better to carry packed food from home and carry an empty bottle. Yes! An empty bottle so that you can fill water from the canteen area instead of buying once weve crossed the security checks. In any case if we wish to carry any liquid along with us overseas the trick is to freeze it solid completely and once its solid it cannot be taken by the security as solids are allowed!
Once we have reached the airport we can check for FREE Wi-Fi which most airports provide but thats for the normal public we can gain access to the 10 TIMES FASTER VIP Wi-Fi just by adding ?.jpg at the end of the url you wish to enter
Example : www.bugyal.com?.jpg
If we are travelling by business class or economy class both the check ins are going to have long queues to enter which can be skipped by us! All we have to do is just sign up for the TSA precheck or the Global Entry.
These were just a few basic simple techniques which can be used to save time, money and make the most out of what we have. In the fore coming parts of the blog we would understand how to save space while packing our bags as well as how to get FREE Wi-Fi wherever we go.
