Stress free holiday
Your Rating: 0/10

Susan's TIP

Stress Free Holiday

When going on holidays especially with a family, order all your groceries, drinks etc with coles or woolworths on line before you leave. They are then delivered directly to your room on arrival. This takes the stress out of finding a supermarket or bottleshop when you arrive in an unfamiliar location and even better if you don't have a car to get around. Also saves you a fortune if you don't have to eat out for every meal! Makes for a great holiday...

Velcro It For Extra Personal Security
Your Rating: 0/10

David's TIP

Velcro It For Extra Personal Security

A extra personal security hint against pickpockets when travelling overseas is to stitch small velcro tabs to pocket openings. It makes it difficult for a potential thief to easily reach in to the pocket without the wearer feeling and hearing the velcro "tear".

Alma's TIP

Secret Money Belt For When Extra Cash Is Needed And No One Would Know

Take a leather belt you wear to an upholstery shop and have them sew on the inside a flat peice of leather/vynil that overlaps and join the pieces with a long zip. Fold your money longways, overlapping and you would be surprised to see how much can be stored in the zip hole and no one would ever know. Great security.

kaye's TIP

Save Space And Avoid Ironing Or Wrinkled Clothes

Whenever I travel, which I do a lot for work and also pleasure, I roll up all my clothes. This makes it much easier to pack everything neatly and tightly into a suitcase taking up minimum space and when you arrive at your destination you simply unroll clothes are not wrinkled and you can hang directly on a hanger in the wardrobe

First impressions count the most
Your Rating: 0/10

Colin's TIP

First Impressions Count The Most

The moment you enter your motel you should meet and speak with the concierge and also stop and soak up the ambience of the foyer. If the concierge is pleasant and engaging stay there and if the foyer has real "soul" stay there, otherwise find a motel that has these distinguishing features. Cheers Colin

To Women - Minimalism without Compromise

Sophie's TIP

To Women - Minimalism Without Compromise

As a seasoned traveler I've learned how important a choice of a colour theme can be to decreasing luggage weight which seems to weigh more each day of your travels when not curtailed. For example; blacks, grays, whites with some red accessories works well. This narrows down shoes needed, etc.

Cheryl's TIP

Pre-book Tickets Where Possible! Save Time And Anxiety!

When travelling try wherever possible to pre-book tickets for attractions in advance. You can really save time in queues! We discovered this on our recent trip to Europe - the queues in Barcelona for the Sagrada Familia were shocking. So before we went to Doges Palace (Venice) we booked online and just had to present our confirmation number at the pre-purchased ticket queue!
