Travel Tools

There are so many of us who likes traveling to the core of our souls and keep on visiting new, beautiful places every now and then. Sometimes the plan arises out of no where and you have no time to think about contents of the luggage for the trip. Most of the time in these cases, we forget one or more essential things to carry while going on a trip.

Since luggage is most common among any kind of traveler, it would be great to always have a list of things to carry on a trip, in store for yourself. It would certainly be extremely handy when the plans are abrupt and come out of nowhere, leaving no time for packing the luggage. I have tried to compile a comprehensive list of thing to carry while I go on a trip and feel could be helpful for each one of us traveling to various places.

Basic Travel Kit :

Alarm Clock/Watch (Batteries?) : A watch (or cell phone†, if you carry one) with a built-in alarm may well be the optimal go-light choice, but I’ve always been partial to a separate, easy-to-read-at-night travel alarm clock. I’ve tried several over the years, so can report with some confidence that you’ll be hard pressed to find one better than the L.L.Bean Nightfinder Alarm (pictured at right above in one of its available colours).

Flashlight, Headstrap, Extra Batteries (Bulbs?) :Your travelers can access complete itineraries for air, car, and hotel via their smartphone devices and be alerted immediately should any travel disruptions be anticipated due to weather, health risks or terrorist threats. Should travel disruptions occur, your travelers have instant access to our office through their mobile app, using phone or text. Travizon’s mobile options are the perfect accompaniment to our proactive trip management, traveler tracking and safety tools.

Spoon (Fork? Chopsticks? Spork?), (Coffee Tin Lid) Plate or Bowl :One sure way to reduce travel expenses is to limit the number of restaurant meals. Breakfast at your B&B is one way. Picnics are another. Cost savings aside, a lunch in the park, with fresh bread, cheese, yogurt, and fruit from the local shops, is likely to be more memorable than another tourist trap pizza. In addition to your knife, you will likely want a spoon.

Door Lock :The compleat traveller carries some sort of portable door lock. In addition to its most obvious use in places where the security may be less than what you would wish, one can also be helpful to secure doors in shared toilet facilities, keep small children safely contained, and even prevent a usually welcome travel companion from stumbling upon a potentially embarrassing situation.

Knife : Luckily, though, you can buy an inexpensive kitchen knife just about anywhere you are likely to travel. Even an upscale model, France’s Opinel folding knife — the travel design classic pictured at right. /span>

Mobile : Your travelers can access complete itineraries for air, car, and hotel via their smartphone devices and be alerted immediately should any travel disruptions be anticipated due to weather, health risks or terrorist threats. Should travel disruptions occur, your travelers have instant access to our office through their mobile app, using phone or text. Travizon’s mobile options are the perfect accompaniment to our proactive trip management, traveler tracking and safety tools.

Travel Guide : A tour guide or a tourist guide provides assistance, information and cultural, historical and contemporary heritage interpretation to people on organized tours and individual clients at educational establishments, religious and historical sites, museums, and at venues of other significant interest.

Compass : Not just for backcountry hikers, a simple compass can be invaluable in helping you navigate the urban mazes of the world. If you’re a serious orienteer, and plan to carry a mirror compass, this can also meet your reflective needs for the trip.
