  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Mobile boarding pass KLMAlthough travelling is one of the biggest pleasures available to us, it’s certainly become a little more complicated thanks to the ever-increasing range of gadgets that we seem to require for 21st century life. So if you’re looking for an easy way to stay in touch with your nearest and dearest, or are merely wanting to access the latest pokies games via your mobile device, here’s a list of what to pack and what you should be able to leave at home.

What to expect

Unless you’re planning on heading somewhere really remote, Wi-Fi coverage is now pretty much standard in most modern hotel rooms. This means that having to face exorbitant mobile roaming charges should hopefully be a thing of a past, and you definitely shouldn’t have to take a dongle with you.

Furthermore, having to print off an endless array of boarding passes and airport parking slips has been relegated to a thing of the past as many airlines such as Air New Zealand have an app that features electronic departure cards, bag tags and even delivers you a fresh coffee on your arrival at the airport!

What to take

Travel AdaptersHowever, there are still a few things to consider when packing your bags. Unfortunately the world has yet to standardise its power supplies which is why there’s an endless range of travel adaptors that have been designed to make powering up in distant locations a lot easier - and some even have a handy USB charging function for your smartphone entertainment needs.

Once you’ve got your multitude of devices charged up and connected to the web, it should prove relatively easy to stay connected to your chosen online activities whether they be checking in with your loved ones via FaceTime.

Once you’ve got your multitude of devices charged up and connected to the web, it should prove relatively easy to stay connected to your chosen online activities whether they be checking in with your loved ones via FaceTime, or even just relaxing with some of Lucky Nugget Casino’s online pokies games that come with a 100% match bonus to help you unwind once you’ve made it to your foreign destination.

In the hotel

And with some handy noise-cancelling headphones to help mask the noise should you find yourself a little too close to the city’s ‘vibrant’ nightlife, you should have everything you need to enjoy your trip away whether its playing online games or even just taunting your friends back home with your holiday photographs!
