Sydney is a wonderful city with so many awesome places to go – from Sydney Opera House to Bondi Beach. However, it’s nice to jet off and explore somewhere new and exotic from time to time. But before you leave the Harbour City, you need to stock up on some savvy travel advice.
So here are 10 handy hacks to help make your well-earned break as enjoyable as possible.
- Tumble dryer sheets
If you’re tired of the scent of smelly socks and sweaty clothes contaminating your luggage, you should pack some laundry dryer sheets – they’ll keep your items smelling nice and fresh.
- Wipe down
Planes, hotels and other shared spaces you encounter on holiday are breeding grounds for germs. So make sure you pack some anti-bacterial wipes to get rid of any germs that could harm your health.
- Airplane TV
If your plane doesn’t have a TV, you can turn your phone into a personal TV using an airplane sick bag. This plane smartphone stand guide from LifeHacker shows you how.
- Refillable bottles
Travel sized toiletries are a con – they cost almost as much as the full sized versions. You’re much better off buying some reusable travel sized bottles and filling them up using what’s already in your cupboards.
- Unpack essentials only
If there’s one thing that can put a downer on a holiday, it’s leaving something behind. To minimize the risk, you should only unpack essential items that you’ll be using frequently. This way, there’s less chance of leaving anything behind.
Finding your way around a new place can be challenging and time-consuming, so make sure you’ve got map access. A good idea is to download the maps you’ll need and access them offline. Alternatively, you can save your phone battery by going old school and buying a paper map.
- Run away from jet lag
Holidays don’t last forever, so the last thing you want is to waste time holed up in bed suffering from jet lag. Thankfully, you can fight off the effects of jet lag by exercising when you arrive. This jet lag article from Medical News Today explains the science behind this hack.
- Pen spring your cables
Staying connected is more important than ever when you’re traveling. So start scavenging some pen springs and wrap them around your charging cables to protect them from getting damaged.
- Don’t be an easy target
Tourists are often seen as prime targets for thieves. It’s therefore worth taking precautions such as storing your money in a lip balm tube and hiding your valuables out of sight.
- Pre-book your parking
Holiday’s aren’t cheap, but you can save yourself some dollars by pre-booking your airport parking – you’ll find Sydney Airport parking deals on Looking4.com.
With these hacks in tow, you’ll be prepared for any obstacles your travel adventure throws your way.
