I’ve learned through experience to bring an empty water bottle to fill after going through security. That saves paying exorbitant prices to buy and throw out yet another plastic container.
For years, I’ve taken along photocopies of my passport in case I lost the real one. Having the passport information is supposed to speed up the replacement process.
Recently, I was intrigued by an item about an inflatable footrest for airplane travel. Seems like a godsend. I’m always looking for someplace to put my feet when I’m trying to sleep on an overnight flight.
For instance, have you ever noticed that the more you return to an airline site to check fares for a particular flight, the higher the prices seem to go? You’re not imagining things. Bookmundi suggests using “incognito mode” to browse. Who knew there was such a thing?
Besides Cheaper Flights
The section on airport hacks gave me several new ideas. Like downloading an app called Flight Board so you know your connecting flight’s gate without ever having to stop at an airport departure board.

Bookmundi also offers useful tips for being on the road. Such as downloading offline maps. Or making sure to have the apps best for traveling internationally.
