Have a watch and listen:
With the holiday countdown in full swing, it’s time to get your travel plans in order. While gearing up for holiday travel may seem overwhelming, with a few simple tips it doesn’t have to be! Everything from using device trackers to staying connected through the right mobile plan to making smart luggage choices can relieve any stress in traveling during the holiday season.
Broste is here to share her top travel hacks that will make the upcoming holiday travel season a breeze!
1. PACK SMALL AND SMART: Minimize what you bring on your trip by sticking to a carry-on. This will avoid the hassle of lost luggage and streamline organizing yourself and your family. Look into the latest ‘smart luggage’ travel trend which features carry-ons that offer wireless charging, luggage tracking via Apple AirTag and a device charging station with a USB-C port making it a convenient and easy way to stay charged and connected.
2. STAY CONNECTED: Ensure you have the right mobile carrier that will keep you connected while traveling on the road, in the air and overseas. Having free Wi-Fi and streaming on flights and free high-speed data in hundreds of destinations is a game changer while traveling. Some mobile plans will even offer discounts on hotels, car rentals, gas and a free year of AAA membership.
3. USE TECH TO PROTECT: One of the most important items you will want to protect on your travels are your electronic devices. Tracking apps like the ‘Find My’ app and ‘Google Find My Device’ app can save unneeded stress if a device goes missing. If your device falls into the wrong hands, you can erase your personal data remotely or lock it down.
