These are easy-to-apply travel tips, shared by expert Mark Saltzman – a fan of “high-tech travel” with USA Today.
1. Take a picture of your boarding pass
The first travel tip is to take a photo of your boarding pass. Many airlines accept boarding passes that are taken with a phone, so passengers don’t have to print them out.
This travel tip is especially useful in case the internet at the airport is unstable, and you cannot access the email to provide the boarding pass staff online.
Mark said: “Take a picture of your boarding pass on your phone just in case. In case the internet connection at the airport is not good, you will still be able to board the plane without affecting other passengers.
However, one thing you should never do is post that photo of your boarding pass on social media, as your details can be taken advantage of.
2. Use TV USB to charge devices
Here’s a travel tip the forgetful will probably need. One of the worst things about a trip is… to forget your travel adapter, and you won’t be able to charge your phone or tablet during the trip.
Thankfully, one way to “save” your devices is the TV in your hotel room. “If you still have an electronic device cable (like a phone charger cable), plug it into your hotel room TV and your device will charge (provided that the TV),” explains Mark. with USB port)”.
While this travel tip is not 100% guaranteed to apply everywhere, it still gives you a chance to “save” your device.
3. Wifi would be better on the second floor
To use wifi better, you should actively book a room on the second floor. “Most people don’t think of the second floor,” says Mark, “but in my experience this is where the wifi speed is pretty good.”
4. Make your damaged airplane headphones work again
One of the most frustrating things that happens on a plane is that the supplied headphones don’t work. With many travelers using wireless headphones, this can prevent you from listening to in-flight entertainment.
There’s a travel trick for getting wired headphones to work: “Don’t plug your headphones too tightly into the jack. Gently pull the headphones out of the jack, and you should be good to go. when the connectors inside the jacks don’t match correctly, leading you to assume the headset is damaged.”
5. Tips to charge your phone faster on the plane
If your phone runs out of battery on a flight, there is a way to charge it faster (depending on the type of plug you use).
“If you’re on an airplane or at an airport that has the option to charge your phone or tablet via a USB port or an AC plug, always use the AC plug (if you have one),” says Mark. This plug can help you charge your device up to three times faster than a USB port.”
However, some airlines charge a fee to use an outlet, so it will cost you money to charge your phone sometimes.
