At ImageThink, travel is an essential part of our routine. As expert-level travelers, we’ve learned the ins and outs of what to do in transit. Here are a few tips:


  1. Bring your charger, and take a screenshot of your boarding pass

Keep an extra charger in your suitcase you travel with at all times. This way, if you forget to bring one in the rush, you’re backed up! Additionally, take a screenshot of your boarding pass. You never know if you’ll have reception, or if you will accidentally lose that small piece of paper.


  1. Wear layers

Temperature on planes and trains is unpredictable. Be prepared by bringing layers along so you can regulate your comfort easily.


  1. Stay hydrated

Drink lots of water. It’s often easy to forget, but giving your body lots of fluids keeps you alert and comfortable.


  1. Wear socks and easily removable shoes

When you go through security, be ready to move quickly without being encumbered by your own feet. Keep socks on to avoid being barefoot on airport floors!


  1. Bring healthy snacks

Airports often don’t have fresh, healthy snacks, so shooting to remember to bring them before you arrive is helpful. Plus, healthy snacks make sitting for long hours more bearable.


  1. Bring reading materials

You’re not guaranteed wifi on a flight or a train ride, so indulge in reading the old-fashioned way!


  1. Carry on your luggage

Avoid checking your bags as much as possible. You don’t want to risk the possibility of them being lost, plus carrying bags on is much faster.


  1. Leave your valuables at home

Don’t bring anything along that you wouldn’t want to lose. Leave that tiara at home!
