We’re always looking for ways to improve our travel experiences, and a big part of modern day life is tech. Knowing certain hacks can save you money and hassle on the go. Here are three of our favorite hot tech tips for traveling:
1) Find Cheaper Flights Online By Turning On Private Browsing First
Thanks to cookies in your web browser, airlines and travel sites can track your visits. In turn, the prices you’ll see can increase each time you look – simply because you’ve previously searched for those same flights. Their goal is to give you a sense of urgency in the hopes you’ll purchase sooner on impulse. Bypass this b.s. by turning on “private browsing” before searching for and booking flights.
2) Charge Your Devices Through The TV’s USB Port
Let’s say you’re traveling internationally and don’t have the appropriate adapter. Or maybe you’re already using the adapter for something else. Maybe you simply forgot to pack your wall plug or you lost it in your travels. Good news! Most modern TVs have a USB port on the back or side with all of its other inputs and outputs! Kind of a game changer, huh?
3) Download The Flight Board App
No more having to schlep to the flight boards in airports. Get comfortable (as much as is possible in an airport) and forget about walking to the nearest board to check on your flight. Just download Flight Board, enjoy that sandwich or cocktail, and have your departures and arrivals info right in the palm of your hand. Your very own personal board. Livin’ large!
