Travel Hacks Before You Leave for a Trip

Hotels are often pricey. If you are looking for something more affordable, try looking for a house for rent (if you are traveling with family) or a room for rent (if you are travelling alone).

Ever go on a long trip and come back and can't remember where the heck you parked your car? Take a quick photo with your smartphone BEFORE you leave the parking garage of which level and parking spot you used.

Make sure that you scan your passport, visa, and ticket, and e-mail them to yourself. You can also memorize your passport number and flight details if possible. This small step can save you from stress in case you lose these very important travel documents.

If you are going to a foreign-speaking country, search for apps that could help you to communicate with the locals. You don't need to learn the entire language. Choose apps wisely, and you will not have trouble conversing with locals about your basic needs.

When you plan to bring your camera, do not forget to take a picture of yourself first. It will prove that the camera is yours in case you lose it.
