Photograph your parking spot
Late night or early morning arrivals can be rushed at the best of times. Don’t try to rely on looking for your car spot when tired. Snap a picture instead and save it into your ‘OneNote’ travel notebook. Also keep a copy of your travel documents, travel itinerary and restaurants you plan to visit. A quick way to access this information is from your mobile device, and it can easily be shared with others.
Photograph your car spot and then use your phone to take a ‘snapshot’ of your license or passport. This photo will provide a back up in case you ever lose it. You may need ID during the trip and don’t want to remember you left it back at the hotel. Security documents like these can be securely stored in your OneNote travel notebook using the fingerprint security (device dependent) or the password protect features. Anything can be password protected in OneNote.
Book and save online!
Many airports and most shopping centre parking centres offer big discounts for those who book online and in advance. Valet parking is often cheaper when booked in advance compared to driving up on the day and self-parking. This is a nice little affordable luxury after arriving home late from a flight to have your car brought to you. Bonus tip! a car wash is often available from most valet services.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
HydraLyte is your friend! One way to compensate for dehydration is this lovely little travel product created for keeping you hydrated and not relying on the taste of water. HydraLyte is also great for combatting jet lag!
Online streaming networks now often have ‘downloadable’ content. Netflix for example, allows users to download tv episodes to watch offline. This is great for long plane flights or during your downtime in your hotel. Microsoft surface pro or any other smaller portable devices are great as a functional device during the day and an entertainment source on the go!
Stay connected at home and work
Connect with the family or work colleagues efficiently using many new and reliable streaming and instant video apps. Facetime on iPhones, Skype video, Marco Polo and other live video callings apps are now keeping families connected more than ever before.
