Travel Lifesavers

Bag it right

Invest in an utilitarian multi-wheeled carry-on gear for better organising and manoeuvring. DonÔÇÖt forget to carry a duffle bag for easy access to travel documents, wallet, cell phones and any other go-to accessory youÔÇÖll need. There are even smart bags available in the market with tracking, charging and other intuitive capabilities, controllable by your smartphone apps. Remember to tag your baggages to avoid the risk of getting them lost.

Carry an adapter

Electric and plug configurations differ from one country to another across the world. Irrespective of the country you are in, to avoid frustrating mishaps, always carry a multipurpose universal adapter cum charger to charge your electronic gadgets such as mobile phones, laptops, smart watches, mp3 players and any other devices.

Have a first-aid kit

ItÔÇÖs imperative to have a first-aid kit handy. Get your prescribed medicines, antibiotic ointments, anti-allergy creams, bug sprays, quick clot sponges, ice packs, adhesive tapes, gauzes, cotton pads, scissors and pain killers. Also stock up rehydration salts, water purification, cold relief and digestive tablets. DonÔÇÖt forget your moleskin, especially when you plan on trekking to protect your skin from friction and pressure.

Anti-bottle the water

Water is the true elixir for any traveller. It relieves one from all forms of discomfort such as jet lag, dehydration and constipation. The cloth textured anti-bottle is the best, efficient way to carry water while travelling. When empty, it can be folded like a napkin and kept inside any small space for later reuse. Invest in this dishwasher safe and BPA free water container to save on space and to travel light.

Get smart with your smart phone

With the advent of smart phones, the best travel life savers are available in the form of mobile apps. So make sure you install few important apps such as CityMapper (to find your way), FoodPanda (to order food or find restaurants) and Expensify (to manage expenses) to help you during your travel. Remember to carry portable power banks or solar powered chargers to charge your mobile phones and other gadgets when you are outdoors without access to any electricity.

Manage your foreign currency

Ensure you have enough US Dollars, British Pounds or Euros, as they are the easiest currencies to get exchange for. Always get foreign exchange at reputed foreign exchange service providers such as UAE Exchange, or youÔÇÖll have to risk getting ripped off by the local roadside peddlers. You can also use international travel cards such as Gocash prepaid card from UAE Exchange that would offer you 6 out of 16 currency reload, exchange rate lock, ATM withdrawal, and POS and online payment facilities.
