Futurelooks Holiday 2008 Guide for Travelling Techie Types

The holiday season can be a pretty stressful time. You have to put up with increased traffic on the roads, in the malls, and at the airport. You may lose some sleep trying to decide on the perfect gifts for your best friend and your significant other. The last thing you want to happen is to have your travel plans all messed up because you didn’t plan the technological side of things adequately.

While this is certainly not an exhaustive list and it’s not all related to gadgets and technology, here are a few more pointers that come to mind when it comes to holiday travel (or just travel in general).

  • Always pack a spare set of clothes in your carry-on
  • Never leave your laptop in the checked luggage
  • Don’t give airport security any reason to be suspicious
  • Keep your important documents (passport, tickets, etc.) on your person
  • Digital cameras are safe for the X-ray scanner
  • Bring a small laptop mouse for ease of use
  • Make sure your rechargeable batteries are actually charged
  • Don’t forget your card reader (if your laptop doesn’t have one built-in)
  • Double-check that you have all the necessary cables
  • Relax! It’s the holidays
