Travel Tips for this Summer

Traveling to a new destination can be scary sometimes.  You wonder how you will be able to get around the city, if you have to worry about your luggage or you wallet.  There are a few things that can put your mind at rest.

  1. Secure your luggage:  If you are rolling through the airport with a nice piece of luggage, you should know, that your luggage is only insured for what is inside of your luggage.  A way around this would be to put your luggage in a less expensive bag.  Try the Osprey Airporter LZ.  If you happen to be traveling abroad, and backpacking, you might want to lock up your goods.  Check out the PacSafe  to secure your pack and all the goodies inside.
  2. Keep You Money Hidden: In a strange city, you might feel a little uneasy about your wallet.  Eagle Creek makes a whole line of products design to hide your money and passport.  You can use the “Undercover Security Wallet” or the “Travel Neck Pouch”.  Let those pickpockets give it their best try.
  3. Fit it all in your bag:  Are you a chronic over-packer?  Try a pack-it cube from Eagle Creek, or one of their handy-dandy air compressor pack bags.  No need for one of those fancy air compressor machines to do your packing.

Traveling can be stressful, but it does not have to be.  What is your biggest pet peeve in travel?
