Today we’re going to talk about a subject that really hasn’t received as much attention as it deserves: the fact that because of technology, traveling has never been so easy.
This doesn’t mean that traveling is free of any hassles and stress these days, but it does mean that traveling has never been so simplified like it is today.
Here are the top ways that tech can make traveling easier:
Planning Trips Has Never Been Simpler
Fundamentally, it’s easier to plan (and book) trips today than it ever has been. In fact, you can research and book flights and hotel rooms using apps on your mobile devices
Today, four out of every five travelers are booking there vacations and business trips online. The days of having to walk into a travel agency to book vacations (and pay extra in the process) are long gone.
You Can Power Your Devices While On The Go
Because of smart luggage, you can now keep your electronic devices always fully charged while you’re on the go.
If you don’t know what smart luggage even is, it’s basically a normal suitcase only with power outlets in it so you can charge your devices.
Some smart luggage models will also come with a Bluetooth security features so you can open open the luggage by using your phone, which is pretty cool.
Sending Money To Anyone (or Yourself) Is Easier Than Ever
Previously, to convert and send money to people overseas, you would need to walk into the physical establishment of a remittance service.
You still can if you want to, but why would you when you can just use online services or apps instead? Most remittance services such as Remitly these days have apps that you can download to your mobile device.
At that point, you just have to choose your recipient and type in their details, convert the funds, and then pay the exchange rate margin and the fee to have it sent and delivered in a matter of minutes.
You Can Make Money While You Travel
Last but not least, making money while you travel has never been so easy as it is now. You can literally make a living out of hotel rooms or coffee shops now if you want to thanks to the never ending shortage of online career opportunities.
Writing articles or eBooks, graphic design work, blogging, affiliate marketing, website building, and app design are just a very limited handful of ways that you can make serious money while traveling the world.
If anything, the ability to work and make serious money from anywhere (and sometimes without a college degree even) is perhaps the single biggest evolution of how tech has impacted travel.
