24 Of The Smartest Travel Hacks

What do you do when the market is at low season? Travel.

A friend shared this link with me and some of the tips are pretty useful.



#1. When booking flights and hotels online enable private browsing. Travel sites often track your visits and will raise the price simply because you’ve visited before. 
Wow I did not know that, definitely something to try.

#17. Use Google Maps offline by typing “OK Maps” and the visible area will save for future access.
I have not tried this, usually I save screenshots of Google Maps on my phone before I travel, such as crucial journeys like airport to train/hotel.

#20.  If you forget your wall plug, you  can charge devices through the USB slot on a TV.
Smart idea, totally did not think of this. Used to have to take turns sharing the charger when I forgot to bring the 3-pin part of the charger.

#21. When you start a new SD card on your digital camera, take a selfie. If you lose your camera and have to claim it from a lost and found, you can prove it’s yours. 
That's right. Same goes for your big face as handphone/tablet wallpaper or in the photo album. Wonder if there is a good way to prove that your infant is yours, if some woman in China starts screaming in public that your kid is actually hers.

#22. Get WiFi passwords by checking comments on FourSquare.
Don't use Foursquare but I might try it for this, but then I need wifi in the first place.

#24. On the last day of your trip to a foreign country, collect all of your loose change and give it to the homeless.
This is a very good suggestion. Usually I do this on the last couple of days, if not I will drop off all my coins into the public donation box at the Airport.

It's that time of year again, where we put everything down and engage in that archaic ritual of crystal ball gazing. Simply put, it...
