    5 Travel Towel Life Hacks for Your Next Trip, Vacation or Cruise

    Life Hacks for travelers. Travel Towel Life Hacks: 5 tips for your next trip, vacation or cruise with microfiber beach towels!

    Here's a few tricks that will make your next resort holiday, hotel trip or cruise vacation more convenient and enjoyable, and save you some valuable luggage space, too. Our microfiber travel towels are much more than just towels. Life is too short for cotton!

    We just spent a week at an all-inclusive resort in Cuba. It was beautiful! We spent most of the week at the beach or at one of the 5 swimming pools that this hotel had to offer. We also spent some time lugging around the heavy cotton beach towels provided by the hotel. They were fluffy and warm, but weighed a ton and were super bulky.

    By the time we packed for the beach we had bags of sunscreen, hats, pool toys, sand toys, bug spray, water, goggles, snorkel gear, cameras, books, some extra clothes, and more. But the big hotel towels were half of the gear we carted around the resort. And this resort had a ton of stairs to climb, too. The towel exchange booth at the resort closed around 4:30, so the first long trip back to our hotel room carrying wet bulky cotton beach towels was the last one.

    We upgraded to our Snappy Towels microfiber beach towels and microfiber travel towels and carried them instead, and here's why:

    1. We could fit all four microfiber towels into the bottom half of my snorkel gear bag, which was less space than just one bulky cotton hotel towel took. And there were more advantages beyond space and weight!

    Snappy Towels microfiber beach towels are 1/4 the bulk of a cotton towel. They pack up as small as a shoe, but are big enough to use as a beach and swim towel. Plus they feel great on the skin.

    Stop lugging around huge, heavy, bulky cotton towels. Wear a Snappy Towel microfiber beach towel instead!

    2. Snappy Towels can be fastened over the back of a lounge chair. This way they won't blow off or fall down, which is particularly annoying if there are puddles on the pool deck or you are trying to read and the towel is falling down over your face (or into your drink!).

    Snappy Towels microfiber beach towels attach over the back of your chair so that they won't blow away or fall down.

    3. We used our towels to reserve the best spot by the pool. The rest of our group had no trouble finding which seats we had reserved!

    4. To hang them up to dry quickly we just snapped the towels over the balcony railing. This way they were safe from blowing down, no clothes pegs required. It also added a bit of privacy to our hotel balcony. This is also a really handy way to not lose your towel on a sailboat, or to add some privacy to your bunk if traveling and staying in a hostel dorm.

    Microfiber Travel Swim towels snapped to balcony railing so that they can dry quickly without blowing away or needed clothes pins. Also great in a hostel or on a boat.

    5. The nylon hanging loop on each towel made them really easy to hang up. I used this to reserve a spot on the beach, and it's an easy way to hang them to dry when there's a hook but no railing or line. 

    Claiming my spot at the beach early in the morning. The convenient nylon hanging loop on each microfiber beach towel makes for easy hanging on any hook.

    How to Pack For a Family Vacation

    How to pack for a family vacation. 10 packing tips

    Summer is fast approaching, and that means many of you are starting to think of your vacations. We've put together this guide on how to pack for family holidays, so if you need a little help getting organized for a fun summer break, take a look at our list of 10 top tips below.

    1. Roll Your Clothes

    You know who has to carry clothes and then wear them in pristine condition? The good people at the US military! Rolling your shirts, pants and socks instead of folding them is one of the main secrets to enjoying less creased clothing. Take a look at the WikiHow guide for more details.

    2. Pack Smart!

    When it comes to packing for a family holiday, you have to be ruthless in your selections. Less is often more when it comes to clothing. For the kids, make sure to take one set of clothes per day, plus a spare for accidents. Any more than that is adding unnecessary extras.

    3. Pack Snappy!

    Save space on beach essentials by using our compact, microfiber beach towels! Check out our blog post on why Snappy Towels make for excellent travel towels for your next vacation, resort holiday or cruise.

    4. Prepare for Baby

    Take more baby essentials than you initially think you need. In the event of a delay, you want to be prepared, unless you're absolutely sure you can pick up essentials in Departures. Take a look at Mumsnet's PDF checklist for a comprehensive list of must-pack baby items.

    5. Divide Clothes between Luggage

    Try to spread clothes for each person across a few different bags. That way, if the worst happens and a bag goes missing in transit, nobody needs wear the same set of underwear for the first few days of the holiday!

    6. Make Copies of Your Itinerary for Each Bag

    Misplaced luggage will be returned much more easily if every bag has details of your flights, home address and hotel address. Plus one lost bag doesn't mean a lost itinerary too!

    7. Give the Kids Their Own Bag

    Hand your kids some responsibility in the shape of an appropriate backpack or wheeled carry-on bag. Fill it with their favorite toys and books for the journey ahead.

    8. Take Medication in Hand Luggage

    Pretty self-explanatory - the last thing you want is someone not getting their medication because it's in the Bermuda Triangle instead of Cancun!

    9. Pack in Advance and Test the Weight

    Don't leave it until the last minute. Make a checklist well in advance and then make sure you're done with a couple of day's grace. For extra ease, take your packed bags round the block a day or two before you leave, to check that nobody is overburdened.

    10. Make Your Life Easier

    Finally, take a look at this short list for some extra inspiration on packing hacks:

    • Sunscreen -¬†buy and pack at home -¬†it's likely to be better quality and not overpriced
    • Kids' inflatables -¬†they're usually cheaper to buy and pack at home than on the beachfront.
    • Zipper storage bags -¬†these multi-purpose bagging solutions have a million uses, from storing wet or sandy clothes to transporting dirty nappies.
    • Nappies -¬†a sneaky trick is to pack cash, jewelry and valuables inside a nappy if you have one available: potential thieves are less likely to try and steal soiled garments. Just make sure nobody -helpfully- throws it out on arrival!
