Top Travel Tips and Hacks for Surviving the Conference Season
10. Know your rights and the best routes to fly
Know your airlines and aviation rules, search airline on private mode, use meta engines like ITA Software and Google Flights:
Matrix Airfare Search or Google Flights.
9. Choose a good credit card
Pick a loyalty program and credit card that maximizes the perks such as Priority Pass lounges, Wi-Fi access, and more.
8. Fly direct and first thing in the morning
Avoid the queues and delays by getting out first before delays stack up.
7. Make navigating easier with offline access to Google maps
Just type ‘OK Maps' in the address bar while browsing a page on google maps. Since GPS works even when data is not connected, an offline map can help you navigate.
6. Keep a digital copy of your travel documents in the cloud
Store a password-protected version of your important documents in a secure cloud network.
5. Be prepared for the digital age
Carry and use items like phone cases with spare batteries, power strips, extension cord – Amir even carries gaffer tape! Also, to help reduce fatigue and improve focus, get a good noise canceling headset. Here are two Amir recommends.
4. Evaluate your best security options
Consider locking valuables in the main hotel safe or your own luggage instead of the room safe.
3. Take care of your health
Consider bringing allergy medications, baby aspirin and always use compression socks!
2. Relationships matter
Get to know your hotel leadership, and where possible, book directly via them.
1. Be courteous with the front line staff
No situation is improved when people act like jerks!
