Top 10 Best Travel Hacks for Your Travels in 2022

Who doesn’t like traveling? We all do. And what most of us love about traveling are the benefits, tips, and hacks that we can use to save up on time, cost and effort. Traveling in 2022 has changed a lot thanks to the COVID pandemic.
With that said, TravelGooru has come up with the top 10 hacks for your travels in 2022. Let’s jump in on them.

1. Use cash machines or ATMs to acquire the local currency.

In today’s world, it’s preferable to use one of these electronic bad boys to obtain national currency rather than a local currency exchange/bureau de change. Money exchangers frequently have their own fees and rip-off conversion rates, which are almost always worse than what your bank offers.

2. Always unpack what you need.

If you have planned on multiple places for travel, it’s always advised to unpack what you require for that particular location. This not only saves time but always helps you on keeping your things in the right place and not have to lose them.

3. Always keep a local map on you.

In a world where Google Maps and other navigation applications are highly useful, it is always better to have a local map. Not all the places you plan to visit might have strong internet service, or you may not have downloaded a last-moment planned destination for a visit. A local map can always come in handy.

4. Don’t let jet lag be the reason for one day extension.

Traveling from different time zones can surely mess up your sleep schedules, no doubt. But that shouldn’t be the reason for you to add an extra day just to get used to the time difference. Our best piece of advice is to run it off. A short run before you travel can help you feel as fresh as a daisy on that clear, sunny morning!

5. Stack your rechargeable batteries in your fridge.

As weird and surprising it may sound, keeping your rechargeable batteries in the fridge keeps them much fresh and full of juice! It is a fact that when rechargeable batteries are kept in cold temperatures, they retain 90% of their full power.

6. Don’t buy a money belt.

If you think that with the help of the money belt, you will have the upper hand to confuse the local pickpocketers, you’ve got it all wrong. It clearly shows that you are a tourist and wearing them would be like announcing it to them that “Hey, I’m a tourist, come rip me off.”
Rather than a money belt, if you really are that worried, carry a dummy wallet and place it in the most obvious place while your real wallet is somewhere safe!

7. Always keep an eye for that free Wi-Fi.

Most of the famous travel destinations have free Wi-Fi. All you have to do is sign in. And trust us when we say – go ahead and sign up! The same applies to airports and other transportation waiting areas. When you are getting it for free, why pay the extra bucks? Use them’ freebies!

8. Beeswax is a great way to waterproof almost anything.

That’s right, go out and buy some beeswax and start rubbing. You can waterproof the outside of your bag, your little light jacket, and even your Converse. It doesn’t get much crazier than this in terms of travel tricks, but don’t you just adore bees?

9. Make extra copies of your passport and other important documents.

Not just have extra copies, but always have them saved on a password protected cloud space. You may never know what might happen. You may lose your phone that’s got all the documents or get them drenched in water while trailing through that amazing waterfall trek. Make sure to always have a backup ready!

10. Keep yourself well-informed by asking the hotel staff.

No matter how well you have searched the internet to find a decent deal for reasonable prices, you will never know the best of the best like a local. This is where the hotel staff comes in handy. They know where to find inexpensive meals and attractions. They are also more likely to be residents who are well-versed in the city. Inquire about everything you can think of. Even if you aren’t staying there, drop in and ask for assistance. Usually, they’ll give it to you.
