TTI Travel Management Company Offers 5 Tips to Use Your Smartphone Wisely

From ubiquitous WiFi to the cell phones growing out of our hands, we’re more dependent on technology than ever. When you travel internationally, your smartphone can work to your advantage – and cause you a lot of grief. TTI Travel, NYC’s professional travel management company specializing in trade show and business travel, offers five tips to use your smartphone wisely during your travels.

Here's what you need to know:
·
Check in with your cell service provider. You won’t want any surprises on your cell phone bill. Before you leave, decide if you want to purchase an international service plan or travel on airplane mode.
·
Research technology differences. You may take your phone charger for granted at home, but when you travel internationally you’ll find a host of differently shaped electrical outlets. Whether you're traveling to Europe or Asia, be sure you're prepared with appropriate adapters.
·
Snap a picture of your luggage. If you’ve ever lost luggage, you know the difficulty of describing your baggage under pressure. Now imagine doing it through a language barrier. Snap a photo on your phone and let your picture speak a thousand words.
·
Learn some key phrases. Phone apps like Duolingo and Google Translate are a great way to pick up a few phrases to help you communicate abroad. “Please” and “thank you” will go a long way.
·
Alert your credit card. Don’t risk the credit card company putting a freeze on your account due to suspicious charges overseas. Most credit cards now offer an easy online system to inform the company when and where you’ll be traveling.
TTI Travel takes the guesswork out of your travels by thoroughly inspecting hotel accommodations in advance of trade shows and business travel to ensure a smooth, successful event. To learn more about their full range of trade fair travel solutions, call (866) 674-3476
