Get a good seat.
It’s no secret that getting a good seat on a long flight can make or break the commute to your chosen destination. Simply suggesting to “get a good seat” isn’t exactly a mind-blowing travel tip, as it’s pretty common-sense. But how, exactly¸ do you pick the perfect seat? That’s where the tip comes in. Check out www.seatguru.com. This awesome website will not only show you what seats are available for specific flights but you will also be able to research every seat on the plane to determine which ones have the most legroom, recline the most, are located next to busy galleys or lavatories, etc. It’s an indispensable tool when it comes to picking seats for long flights.
Carry the right gadgets.
There is certainly no shortage of travel tips that pertain to gadgets, but for our money, you can’t go wrong with a simple three-way outlet plug or multi-device adapter for charging all your bigger equipment and a good pair of noise-canceling headphones. There are tons of headphones on the market for just about any price range which, when combined with a dark pair of sunglasses or sleeping mask will help you catch some sleep on your flight.
Carry a cheap, crushable tote bag.
A small nylon tote bag can easily be stuffed into your carry-on luggage. It can come in handy if you need an emergency carry-on bag or if your normal carry-on is deemed too large by the airline. Plus, you can use it to separate your dirty clothes in your main luggage while you’re on vacation. The uses are practically limitless.
