Life Hacks for the modern traveler


Travel is always a nightmare for many. As a modern traveler, one must know how to travel peacefully in order to have a good time. This means you need to have knowledge of how to pack your luggage without burdening yourself with making your mobility accessible. Gadgets help us a great deal, and some of us need it, but what happens when Internet connection is limited or nonexistent? So here I have some of the best life hacks to help you travel easily whether traveling by land, sea or air.

Roll Clothes

Instead of folding clothes, roll them into long pipes. Not only will this prevent fat buildup, but you will also be able to fit a lot more into your suitcase, as soaked clothes take up less space.

Profession Tip: Socks can be rolled up into balls and placed in shoes for greater space savings.


Make digital backups of all the important documents you will need for your trip, including passports, any booking confirmations, boarding passes, etc. so that you are covered in the event of loss or theft.


Pack one adapter with multiple chargers for all devices instead of several different chargers. If you are traveling abroad, pack an extension cord so you can power multiple things at a time using a single foreign plug adapter.

Profession tip: Most modern TVs have USB ports at the back, which is ideal if you forget the charger plug.

Check VI-FI

Spend some time before you go looking for VI-FI hotspots and free VI-FI areas. That way you can always go online if your hotel or cottage does not have VI-FI or if it charges a lot.


Before you go, use Fourskuare to find wireless passwords for all the different Vi-Fi hotspots you find. People constantly list passwords on travel sites like this, which makes your life easier when you arrive.


When you book online, whether it's a flight, cruise, hotel or something else, clear your browser's cache or use the incognito browser window. Booking websites often increase prices if they know you've been there before.

Credit card

If you are traveling abroad or will be away from home for a long time, call a credit card company and let them know. That way they won't think your card was stolen and won't cancel it on you.

If you follow these tips, you can easily go through the hassle of traveling and enjoy your vacation peacefully.
