Our Travel Hacks
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.
Big Insulated Mugs!
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!
When we travel we pack one outfit in each others suitcase in case one of our bags gets lost.
We could not figure out the GPS in our rental car so we searched on Youtube and got it figured out!
Sim Card or ESim for phone usage
If you want to use your phone in a foreign country get a SIM card at a local store once you are in country or order an ESim if you phone is compatable.
