How to Travel Like a Tech Pro

Are you tech prepared for your next vacation?

Don't be THAT traveler who isn't prepared when travelling.

Here are Cool Tips when you Travel

Iberostar Grand Bavaro

  • When you are traveling out of country, be sure to check your mobile phone carrier's international plans.  If you know you'll be using phone or data while away from a free WiFi, ensure you have a plan in place BEFORE you travel.
  • Check that your destination offers FREE Wifi.  Many resorts and hotels offer complimentary WiFi connections.  Also check if major attractions offer FREE WiFi as well.  This can greatly reduce any data or phone charges.
  • Bring a portable battery pack with you and that you have it charged.  This will reduce the chance that out run out of power for your mobile devices when you need them the most.
  • Finally, bring USB and power cords with you so that you can plug in whenever you have a chance.

Enjoy and safe travels!

Dude, Where's My Luggage?

Lost Luggage
Frequent travelers know the question well.  

Travelers arrive at their destination and their luggage doesn't appear on the carousel and mysteriously goes "missing".

Where's My Luggage?

In my own recent experience, the airline had no idea where my luggage was located.  

For all of their vaulted computerized tagging and tracking, they couldn't or WOULDN'T tell me where my luggage was located.

I'm looking at you Frontier Airlines.

But now that's all changed with Apple's new Air Tags.

Apple Air Tag

Here's the Cool Tip: put an Apple Air Tag into each piece of checked luggage. 

And also into every bag you take on board the plane.

And on your keyring (you can buy Air Tag keyring holders).

So how do Apple Air Tags work?

These small devices first easily connect to your iPhone.  

Then using the Find My app, all connected Air Tags display with their most recent reported locations.  

So how does your iPhone know where the Air Tag is?  

By themselves, Air Tags don't transmit their location like a phone directly.

Instead, whenever the Air Tag comes within range to any iPhone, the iPhone will report its location. 

And all you have to do is check your Find My app to see where each Air Tag was last reported.

You can also have an Air Tag Play a Sound, or get directions on your phone to locate an Air Tag.

Air Tags cost about $25 each when you buy them in a pack of four.  

And they have a replaceable battery.

Apple was not the first company to introduce a similar device.  

That honor goes to Tile.

Tile Tracker

Similar to Air Tags, Tile devices allow users to locate them with their phones.

Tiles have the benefit of working with both iPhone and Android phones.  

However, only phones also running the Tile software will report their location.

So that's limiting compared to the installed world-wide base of iPhones.


Finally, rumors swirl that Google is developing its own Air Tag clone.

Hopefully, in the the future, you'll never have to ask "Where's My Luggage?".
