Battery drain

First turn on the flight mode in your phone and then charge your device at the airport lounge. This way the battery charges faster. However remember to carry a portable power bank, multi-pin spike buster, adapter and charger with you. You can use your air miles to bag free Wi-Fi, charging outlets, or you could just pay a nominal fee.

Unsecured Wi-Fi

Most airports are equipped with free Wi-Fi facility that could be swarming with spyware and viruses of all kinds. Top-notch anti-phishing web protection is indispensable at airports. The web threats that tap into sensitive financial data could be avoided by securing our devices with software such as Kaspersky, Norton etc. Also set your Bluetooth to hidden mode and disable geo-tracking on smartphones.

Noisy waiting time

High stress levels could be triggered from the boredom in noisy airports. Hence carrying your own noise- cancelling head phones (you could avoid infections) to watch a movie or listen to some music.

Lost Luggage

Lost luggage incidences at airports are indeed a nightmarish experience. So always ensure you attach digital tracker such as Trakdot, LOC8ING or Spy Tec STI_GL300 Mini to your bags. This way you need not be clueless about a missing luggage.

Fluctuating interest rates

While at the airport, check for your destination countryÔÇÖs currency exchange rate. Using travel cards you can lock your exchange rates and use them later on. Walk into any currency exchange counter at the airport, to check the best deals in forex.

And enjoy your stay at the airport!
