Admission for all

There’s often a day of the week where admission to museums and other cultural venues are free in cities popular as tourist destinations. In some, it’s even all week. Knowing this, it’s a good idea to plan your stay so that you go to the free venues on the free days. Save the museums and the like for the free day and take advantage of knowing this by visiting the other attractions or areas of interest.

Check your destinations’ tourism or cultural association to find out what days are good.

This way you’ll save yourself a lot money to spend on accommodation or even drinks! 🙂

Smart Packer

Most avid travellers will have a tip or two up their sleeves on how to pack travel gear earned through experience.

If you’re going on a road trip the main principles are simple: the heavy items and non-essentials go at the bottom of the trunk and the perishables should be kept in a cooler making sure those snacks for the road are nice and easy to reach . If your trip is an epic journey across no mans land – remember too that in your mission to achieve perfect space optimisation – keep the air gauge and compressor for your tires and gerry can (preferably full) within quick and easy reach.

When it comes to air travel remember that including gas bottles and batteries in your checked luggage is a sure way to have your baggage left behind for inspection. On the other hand any sharp instruments including pocket knives, tweezers and nail clippers should be checked to avoid confiscation at the security points.

Unless you are travelling alone, it’s also a good idea to split your gear between two or more bags. That way if one bag arrives without the other, you’ll be kitted out for a day or two while you wait for the telephone call from lost luggage. If you’re in this unlucky position, remember that if you’ve booked your tickets on your credit card some financial institutions will reimburse at a prescribed rate for each day your bag is held up.
