Becoming a smart traveler usually takes time, experience and maybe a few mishaps… but our Problem Solvers team didn’t want you to have to go through all of that! That’s why we came up with these three simple hacks to help you avoid common traveling woes.
Put liquids in smaller toiletry bottles that meet TSA requirements
Transferring your shampoos, conditioners, soap and other necessities into smaller bottles (no more than 3 oz) in your carry-on is one of the smartest moves you can make when traveling. With a little advance planning, you’ll never scramble to find containers and plastic baggies in the line at security, or have to sprint to repack your checked luggage again! In fact, by organizing your toiletries ahead of time and bringing only the amount you’ll need for the duration of your trip, you can often avoid checking luggage (and potentially losing your personal items) altogether. The PakUrDerm Travel Kit system has everything you need to stay one step ahead of the TSA’s liquid restrictions. It contains six 2.8 oz containers with easy-grip tops and wide openings that are easy to fill with all your personal care essentials. Plus, the kit comes with a set of blank, waterproof, pre-printed labels and an included marker, so you can clearly mark the bottles’ contents and prevent confusion.
Keep in touch on the go—without running out of juice
If you have multiple devices that you use on a regular basis—phone, tablet, laptop, mp3 player, eReader, etc.—you know how quickly one or more of those can lose power when you only have one charger. Whether you’re working from the road or trying to keep multiple people entertained on a long road trip, the Charge™ Quad USB Power Hub™ 9.6 provides four USB ports to keep up to four devices charged with 2.4A of power. (That’s enough power to charge up to four iPads™ at once!) With a USB power hub on hand, you’ll never struggle to stay connected on the road again.
Stash your money, passport and other valuable items in a discreet money belt
If you’ve ever traveled far from home, you’re likely to have experienced some minor anxiety about the safety of your valuables. Designed to reduce even the slightest stress at the location of important personal items—like credit cards, foreign currency, passport, cash, ID, keys, prescription medication or just about anything else—our BANDI® Travel and Money Belt rests comfortably around waist sizes 30-42 inches, subtly conforming to your body and offering a discreet location to store extra-sensitive items. You’ll never have to worry about being pick-pocketed on public transit or accidentally losing your passport in a foreign capital with this safe, secure travel solution.
