1.) Plan Early
It’s a good idea to begin planning your trip as early as possible. Be sure you’ve booked your flight, hotel, and have a general idea of what things you would like to do once you’ve reached your destination. You can always ad lib as needed, but a general plan will help you be sure you don’t miss out on anything you wanted to do.
2.) Communication is Key
When traveling, it’s important that you’ve communicated well. Not only should your traveling companions be clear on what’s going on… you’ll want to be sure that you are well aware of the policies and procedures for any place you will be visiting. It’s a good idea to have all important phone numbers you might need to be programmed into your phone in advance, for easy access.
3.) GPS Is Your Friend
The worse way to spend your vacation is lost. You’ll need a phone that will allow you to GPS directions, and that will provide you dependable coverage no matter where you travel. If you have an older child whom you’ve been on the fence about getting a phone for…. now would be the time!
4.) Use Your Tax Refund To Purchase A Dependable Phone Plan
We traveled to New York last week and I grabbed a Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan from my local Walmart before we left. The new plan comes with unlimited talk, text, 10GB of data AND 4G LTE, for only $49.88! The increase in data was great, especially during the downtime in the airport. This plan also comes with a free movie each month (a new release!) through VUDU. I thought that was neat since I could watch it on my tablet while we waited. Next month I’ll be at home, so I’ll probably watch it on the Chromecast or Smart TV.
There are lots of different options for awesome and affordable devices available with the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan too. I grabbed a cute little Samsung Galaxy Core, which was on rollback for only $79.92.
There were so many different phone options available, you’re sure to find one you love!
If you’ve done the things about, you should be well on your way to having a smooth trip. I didn’t have a single issue with service while in New York, and we had the time of our lives! Our hotel wasn’t ready when we arrived, but I used my Walmart Family Mobile Plus phone to look up things to do in the area, and we roamed the streets taking in the sites! Our GPS led us to places like Central Park and Times Square, and I was able to capture pictures and quickly share them with friends and family via social media with the superfast 4G LTE!
