Going away on vacation or even for a business trip can be an exciting experience, yet  little inconveniences can add stress to the journey. Fortunately, technology has given us a solution to many of those problems. By taking advantage of someone else’s ingenuity, you can reduce your stress, sit back, and enjoy the ride.
Dying Mobile Devices
Is there anything more frustrating than relying on a phone or tablet on a trip, only to have the battery die with no free outlet in sight? Away offers a solution. Their Carry-On suitcase has a battery built into it to help you stay connected. Although the battery is built into the suitcase, it’s ejectable and, perhaps even more enticing, it’s compliant with all airline and TSA regulations.
Hate Planning Your Vacation?
There’s an app for that and it’s called Journy. The app is actually a gateway to a service that charges $25 per day. For that fee, your entire itinerary will be handled by a concierge. Hotel reservations, dinner plans, and even sightseeing excursions are all arranged for you. Once you tell your concierge about your interests and tastes, he takes care of the test. Basically, it’s like hiring a tour guide, but less expensive.
Out of Range Data Charges
If you’re leaving the country, you might be thinking you may as well leave your phone at home. You don’t want to risk paying high overage charges, so your phone will be pretty much useless. Not anymore. A great tip for international travelers is to invest in the Skyroam Solis Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot and Power Bank, which costs around $149.99. You’ll also need the Skyroam day passes, but you can get 5 for the price of 4 at $40. The device works in at least 110 different countries and the battery has 16 hours of life. Additionally, you can connect up to five devices, which means the entire family can access the data for a day on one pass.
These suggestions will help you stay connected on the go, which may be the biggest inconvenience connected with traveling. No matter where we go, we want to stay connected to family, friends, and employers. In some cases, it may be necessary to be reachable, even when you’re out of the country. These tech innovations can help you do that and help you enjoy your vacation.
