Everyone wants life to be easier, right?
There are certainly some things that we all want to happen as simply as possible. For those that travel either regularly or just on occasion, getting there with ease is a goal.
Some basic tips:
Keep it light.
If you have too much stuff to carry around it can be exhausting. Whatever you bring on your trip, you will at certain points actually have to carry it all. Keep that in mind when packing and keep it to a minimum.
Check your bags.
If you are hesitant to check your bag because of the charges, give it a second thought. If you are going to be trekking through a few airports to deal with connections, it will be easier with less baggage. Pay the fee and check what you can. Use your carry on for those things that you must keep with you (that are allowed).
Take advantage of offered services.
Porters offer to check your bags at curbside, enjoy the service. You can look at the tags that are put on your bags to be certain that the code matches your destination, if you are worried about mistakes. It is also possible to have your parking pre-reserved or even get a limo ride to the airport.
Bring the toys.
Traveling with kids can be incredibly difficult if you are unprepared. Bring the electronic games along that will keep the kids busy. Computer tablets, such as an IPad, can be a huge help with distracting the kids. They can play games, draw, listen to music and watch movies. While you might want to limit their time on such devices at home, allowing them more leeway while away will help with keeping everyone quiet and happy.
