Tuesday Travel Tips!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Realty Center

When packing a flashlight or any other item with batteries, turn the batteries around so that if the item is accidentally turned on, you won't empty the batteries. Don't forget to turn the batteries back around when using the flashlight.

Traveling to warm destinations?  If you appreciate cold drinks think of using a six-pack cooler as a toiletry bag. Once you arrive at your destination and unload your toiletries your 'toiletry bag' guarantees cheap cold drinks on the beach, no matter how remote.

For those using suitcases without a divider, a piece of cardboard makes an excellent divider and helps keep your clothes organized and neat as you are able to lay them out flat on the cardboard. It also makes airport inspections a lot less of a hassle as you can lift out your divider with clothes on top easily.

Great tips my friend!

Here's one that's also pretty good.....

When packing clothes, if you put them on hangars with a plastic bag on them (like you get back from the cleaners), they won't be wrinkled when you unpack.

Dear Kristin,

I love the tip about using the small travel cooler for toiletries! How clever! Another plus is that if something breaks during the flight the liquid is contained and won't ruin your clothes!

Hi Kristen-Great tips. When I travel again I will have to make sure I do that plus pack very light to save the $15 fee for check bags. RIDICULOUS.  Have a great day. <SMILE>

What neat ideas Kristin - I'd put a couple plastic water bottles in the freezer and keep them in the cooler bag...  Nothing like a very cold jug of water once off the plane! (I also keep a few in my car and at the end of the day my clients have a cold water too...)  Thanks for the great tips!
