Our Travel Hacks

01/

Get a Global Entry Pass

Get a Global Entry pass!  It is $100 for 5 years.  Includes TSA Pre check entry AND way shorter lines in Customs for international travel.  No brainer if you fly.   https://ttp.dhs.gov/

Never hurts to ask!

I have noticed when flying that the first person to ask the flight attendants about moving to open seats for more space, usually gets the first opportunity.

Black Hole Bags

We love our Black Hole bags from Patagonia!  Tough, waterproof, made from recycled plastic, carry-on size, and backpack straps. Find them here!

Big Insulated Mugs!

Big insulated mugs of some kind are great for roadtrips in the car or RV. They are cheaper to refill with soda and coffee and we use less plastic.  They are also amazing for All Inclusive resort refills too. Both kinds right here! Yeti https://amzn.to/2WBb6A6

CO and Smoke alarms

To be safe at all times we travel with a Carbon monoxide/smoke alarm.  It is battery powered and easy to pack.  Remove the batteries when in your suitcase so it doesn't go off. Be safe and buy it!
