Travel Accessories for the Frequent Flyer
Frequent flyers know the drill. Endlessly packing and unpacking suitcases; rushing from airport to hotel, hotel to airport; nervously patting down pockets in search of passports, visas, and other documents; and all this before negotiating the ever more intrusive practices of airport security.
However, what if you could make just a few small changes that could streamline the whole process? What if technology, both old and new, could help lessen some of the unavoidable stress of frequent flying?
Thankfully, we’re here to tell you that it can, as we look at some of the ultimate travel accessories designed to make the life of the frequent flyer that much easier. Read on and discover how your next trip out of town could be revolutionized
Pack Your Bags
Whichever way you look at it, the trials and tribulations of flying are more challenging than ever. However, at least the luggage industry has gone some way to keeping up with the demands of today’s frequent flyers.
Anti-theft bags that include multi-step opening mechanisms and slash proof fabrics are ideal for city travelers concerned about laptops and other important devices.
This type of bag should be paired with a more traditional carry-on trolley such as those found in the Tumi Alpha 2 line. The Alpha 2 Carry-On 4 Wheel, in particular, includes a convenient garment bag so you can keep suits and other delicate clothing in top condition as you travel.
Additionally, the hanger bracket and removable zippered pouches mean you never have to truly unpack, ensuring you can jet in and out of your hotel quickly and efficiently.
Keep Tabs on Your Things
It’s extremely rare to find a frequent flyer these days who doesn’t carry numerous devices and a variety of important documents. With this in mind, you want to be sure you have them packed and, when in a rush, that you can put your hands on them quickly.
Thankfully, the indispensable Tile Bluetooth tracker system allows you to do both.
Arm your most important devices and documents with Bluetooth based Tile trackers and whenever you are missing something, just fire up the app on your smartphone and the selected device will ring loudly until you locate it.
Additionally, if you can’t find your phone, simply double-click on any Tile and your phone will ring in the same way – ideal for anyone who makes a habit of forgetting devices and documents in unusual places.
It’s about the journey and not the destination, we often hear, and for the frequent flyer, this is particularly true. In fact, sometimes you’ll spend more time traveling than you will actually at your destination; time that you would prefer not to waste.
Whether working or simply keeping up with friends and family, a reliable internet connection is an extremely important while on the move, and while public Wi-Fi is becoming ever more ubiquitous, there are still plenty of black spots, with the added risk of security flaws also thrown into the mix.
A travel router is a must then, and the TL-MR3020 wireless travel router from TP-Link is a great place to start.
Boasting a compact and lightweight form factor, dual-band Wi-Fi, and a super fast connection through ethernet, this modem is the perfect travel companion, plus you can easily connect a 4G USB dongle to ensure connectivity wherever you go.
Pair this with a Skross travel adapter to keep all your devices charged in any country and you’ll never have to worry about being disconnected ever again.
