People these days travel a lot, though for several different reasons like work, business, family get together, weddings, formal events or even pleasure, and many people find it hard to deal with travelling. They get tensed and find the flight travels in particular, very stressing. If you know how to make the best of your journey then you might actually end up enjoying travelling.
Following are a few tips to not only use your time well during travelling but to actually make it easy, comfortable and fun too!
Take a Red-Eye Flight
A red-eye flight is generally of 4-6 hours long but the journey is in the night and finishes by early morning giving you the chance to sleep it off. So, for the people who find it tough and stressing too much about travelling or saving the day time, they can easily travel through the night and can save time and energy for the next day by sleeping throughout the flight’s duration till they reach their destination. Here are a few suggestions for those who wish to make their travel time further convenient and useful:
- Since the first objective is to be comfortable during the flight, you must try to grab the front seats of the plane so you can enjoy the wide leg space available.
- To rest and sleep during the travel is the second objective of taking a red-eye flight, which is why you must not forget to bring the things that can put you at ease and lull you to sleep like your comforter, pillow, ear plugs and eye mask etc.
- Book everything beforehand so you have no unexpected hang ups.
- Don’t forget to keep an ironed piece of clothing in an easily reachable spot in your luggage, so that you could get ready in an instant, if needed.
Keep Your Phone Charged and Apps Updated
To keep your travelling swift, you will ultimately need a bunch of handy apps while you are off for a journey. So you must keep your smartphone updated and stuffed with all the new supporting apps like tour guide, location maps, Uber service, online food ordering, language translator, music library and many more such apps because in a new town, city or place you may need them more than any regular person. Not only that you can also download movies or ebooks for your entertainment during your leisure time on your travel.
Another way to keep a cool head and manage your travel well is to pack a very light luggage. We women, mostly pack very heavily so that we could be well prepared for all sorts of unexpected accidents or programs. But to pack reasonably will help you in so many ways. You will not have to drag heavy bags everywhere and not even have to go through hours of planning your attire. Keep a small luggage along with one shoulder bag with minimum accessories that you could even keep in the compartment above your seat in the plane. Also, don’t forget that your carry must be light weight and not stuffed either.
Keep Yourself Properly Hydrated
When we are travelling, we are so busy with all the details, packing and unpacking at the hotel that we forget to maintain our intake of water. This can significantly affect our body, especially when we are travelling. So we must keep a good check on keeping our body hydrated. If you are a forgetful person and tend to forget the basic things then you can also put up alarms with a normal gap to remind you to drink a glass of water throughout the day. You must also be conscious of a good balance between your consumption of alcohol and the water level in your body when you are travelling or are in a flight.
Book A Transport To Pick You From Airport Beforehand
This can be a little tricky, if you are travelling to a new place, as you will have to check all the sources which are available in the area, to book a pick and drop service to/from the airport with all the safety and cost advantages. Generally, all services have some good and some negative points, so it is always better to go through these options beforehand and plan to book a service with maximum advantage.
