- Keep the rechargeable batteries in the fridge
Yes, you heard it right. Keeping the rechargeable batteries in the fridge can help the batteries to remain charged for longer and will save you from continuous trouble of charging them. This is because the batteries retain charge better when they are stored in cold temperatures.
- Get free food and drinks as a market researcher
With so much intense competition in the market, and companies trying to prove themselves, it is a good opportunity for you to avail benefits. Companies always look for people to try their in return for reviews. A win, win for both!
- Use a small backpack or suitcase
When you buy a small suitcase or backpack, you are forced to pack fewer items and it also ensures that you travel light. Travelling becomes easier when you carry lesser items.
- Carry an extra credit card or bank card
Carrying an extra card will save you from unforeseen situations and you will never be without funds. You can travel tension free without getting yourself in stressful situations (asking others for money).
- Use bank cards with no or lowest fees
It is better to use cards without fees as losing money to banks is something no one would like to do. It is good to have a debit or credit card which does not have transaction fees. It may seem just a few dollars or cents initially but over time it will definitely save you a lot of money.
- Make some copies of the important documents
You never know when you might need a copy of your driver’s license, identity proof or passport, and it is certainly not a good idea to keep carrying the original documents with you at all times. So, it is good to make a copy of the documents and also email a copy to yourself so that you can use it at any time.

Phone and laptop chargers are one of the most common items people forget in the hotels and guest houses, so do not panic if you forgot yours at home. All you need to do is contact your hotel as the housekeeping mostly collects the chargers people forgets, and you can easily get one charger for your use.
