Once upon a time your suitcase had one function: to carry your belongings from home to your destination and back again. As technology advances, so do the functions of our everyday items as well, and luggage is no exception.
Today’s carry-on bags and suitcases have a whole host of features luggage never had in the past. Suitcases have been designed with GPS to make our lost luggage easy to locate and battery-operated locks that connect to Bluetooth devices.
Unfortunately, technology sometimes gets a little bit ahead of itself, resulting in last year’s ban on smart luggage using certain types of batteries which could pose a serious safety threat under certain conditions.
Genius Pack sets itself apart from the smart luggage controversy with smart, functional bags that provide travelers with a host of conveniences.
The High Altitude Flight Bag, available online from Genius Pack for $88 (currently on sale for $68), doesn’t just carry your belongings on the plane and slip under the seat in front of you. It slips onto the seat in front of you. The straps fit snuggly onto your upright tray table, giving you convenient access to your belongings throughout your flight.
The bag is designed to expertly organize your belongings, such as your passport, travel documents, phone and more. It also has a portable mobile charger for your smartphone and a port for your earbuds to connect to devices inside your bag for easy listening.
Being stuck in the middle seat on an airplane is hardly anyone’s first choice, but for travelers who aren’t willing to shell out extra bucks to choose their own seat, the middle seat may be randomly assigned to them. However, there are a few ways to make the most of this situation and breeze through the flight with the most comfortable experience possible.
While your first inclination might be panic when you map out the various appointments and meetings on your upcoming business trip, relax. Trust us, a rental car has you covered.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Ice hotels are becoming increasingly popular as a unique adventure for dedicated travelers.
