Travel hacks

Updated on January 13, 2016
  1. When packing carry-ons do not bring more than needed. I strongly suggest you take something that will fit under your seat as it a lot less effort when you want to get something.
  2. Don't pack lots of books in your carry on, It makes it so heavy.
  3. If you have room left in the carry on bag... Don't downsize; pack a pillow ( this only really applies long haul flights ) and a scarf/hoodie.
  4. Don't leave everything to the last minute. You will become very stressed out and it will simply make everything harder.
  5. When dealing with security always be polite and cooperative. You are more likely to be stopped if you are rude and aggressive. I know first hand that it can be difficult to stay polite when you have just come off a six hour flight but manners will always fare well when dealing with authorities.
  6. Always eat a lot before getting on a flight. I have found that in flight food can be disgusting ( with the exception of BA and AA) and you won't want to go 12 hour without eating.
  7. Always pack a pair of good headphones. If a baby starts crying and you are unable to acess headphones... Try and hold onto your sanity!
  8. Make sure all your electronic equipment is charged, and bring a charging lead as some planes have places to plug them in.
  9. If you are going to a hot country pack a pair of shorts a t-shirt and deodorant.This is especially important for if you have a long car drive.
  10. Whatever you do, don't rely solely on in flight entertainment. You will ultimately get bored.
  11. This one applies mainly to women. Don't wear excessive amounts of makeup. It will only make you feel grimy and ickey later on in the flight.
  12. Bring hand sanitiser, moisturiser and lip balm. Your skin can get very dry when flying.

I hope these were helpful!!!
