Imagine this: You’re checking your MissTravel account and receive a trip offer requesting your company on a weekend trip to a sunny locale. After a few FaceTime chats you’re ready to start packing your bags for an exotic excursion.
Do you know what necessities to bring? How to avoid being disconnected during your trip? What tricks do you have up your sleeve to help alleviate the stress of traveling?
The insiders here at MissTravel share their top travel hacks that will make your next trip a breeze.
So you’re all packed for your trip but don’t forget to call your bank and cell phone provider. You can avoid a financial headache by letting your bank know when and where you plan on traveling. This helps them monitor for fraud and also prevents the possibility of your money getting tied up due to suspicious activity.
If you’re planning on leaving the country, be sure to call your cell phone provider. You can update your plan to cover you internationally and avoid those outrageous roaming charges.
This is the oldest, most tried and true travel hack in the world. Yet people still haven’t completely given in to this style of packing.

Struggling to choose what date dresses to bring?
