6 essential travel tips
Whether we are going on vacation or on a business trip, we always want to be able to optimize the binding times of the trip, the moments of transport or waiting, but also to avoid problems once there.
Behind the idea of MUB is 20 years of professional and personal travel around the world, 20 years of travel in airports, stations, subways, a lot of time spent in the air and on the road. During all these moments in transit, we have devised several methods to optimize our trips and adopt good habits before each departure, with the aim of saving time and energy.
The products of the MUB bag range bring together all these methods developed during these years.
Here is a list of tips that will simplify your travels, whether or not you have a bag from the MUB range.
#1 Create a prep routine
The most important step: prepare your things always in the same way. Because of this, you will not forget important matters. This will also make it easier for you to prepare for your trip and reduce your stress level, which is always at its maximum when a major trip approaches. The best way to do this is to find a suitable piece of luggage for each situation, the one that suits each of your trips. You will then be able to reduce the time of preparing your luggage.
#2 Create a Travel Checklist
Having your habits during the preparation is one thing, having pre-established a global list of all the things you are going to bring is another. Imagine, no more forgotten chargers or essentials for your trip. It's often the things we need every day that we tend to forget the most. The reason is simple: we use them just before our departure and we forget them at home.
Here is a quick checklist of essentials for all your travels:
- Electronic devices and their chargers (phone, tablet, computer, camera, GoPro, external battery, adapter...)
- Passport/ID card
- Bank card and currency
- Toiletry bag
- Travel and accommodation documents (tickets, Visa, certificates, etc.)
- Keys (to be stored safely for return)
- Hydroalcoholic gel
#3 Don't put away the toiletry kit first
Facilitate your check-in at the airport by keeping your toiletry bag and all the electronic equipment at hand. Make them accessible in a pocket above clothing. Use a handy bag like the Getaway or the Biarritz Deluxe Traveler which offer very accessible pockets and which saves you from unpacking your whole bag.
#4 Travel light
Not only does a hand luggage make it easier to check in at the airport, but it's also easier to carry on trains, public transport or even directly to your meeting place.
#5 Charge your electronic devices before you leave
With your electronic devices charged, you can use them during waiting times and throughout your trip. Today with e-tickets and online check-ins, it wouldn't be ideal to run out of battery power while going through ticket control.
If in doubt, always carry an external battery with you and print your transport tickets.
#6 Invest a little more to get more ergonomic luggage
Spending an extra hundred bucks on a bag or suitcase seems like a lot of money, especially if you don't have a lot of travel throughout the year. However, it is recommended to invest a little more in order to have a bag designed for your health and making your life easier. Remember that good backpacks emphasize extra shoulder padding, an ergonomic back mold, and consistent weight distribution. Even on long trips, you won't experience a sore back and extra fatigue.
