Worried about what you would do if your phone was lost while traveling? Set up your phone’s lock screen to display an image that contains alternate contact info.

 

2. BRING AN EMPTY WATER BOTTLE THROUGH AIRPORT SECURITY.

Simply bring an empty water bottle through security and refill it at a water fountain on the other side of the checkpoint to avoid paying for overpriced drinks.

 

3. USE A PAPERCLIP TO KEEP YOUR LUGGAGE ZIPPERS FROM SEPARATING.

No luggage lock, no worries! Popsugar suggests this little trick that works just as well.

 

4. USE COLORED DUCT TAPE TO QUICKLY SPOT YOUR SUITCASE.

Finally! A way to distinguish your black rolling suitcase from everyone else’s.

Momcrieff offers a simple tutorial here.

 

5. SAVE MONEY ON INTERNATIONAL CALLS AND TEXTS WITH FREE CALL AND TEXT WI-FI APPS.

Download WhatsApp, Skype, FaceTime and Facebook Messenger or Google Voice to stay connected!

 

6. A HARD PLASTIC SOAP CASE IS THE PERFECT SIZE TO PROTECT A CAMERA STASHED IN A CARRY-ON BAG.

Don’t forget to take lots of photos! They could win you some pretty awesome prizes with passports Traveler Photo Contests.

 

7. AND THE BEST TRAVEL HACK OF ALL? TRAVEL WITH PASSPORTS!

There’s no need to worry about hacks involving flight and hotel booking services because passports does all the hard work for you. Preferential flight routings, with fewer connections and hotels in the center of the cities you came to visit!
