Holiday travel – just the thought of it can make many people shudder at the visions of long check-in lines, flight delays and cancellations, and feeling less than fresh after long-haul travel. Here, we’ve listed some things you can do and what you need to pack to make your holiday travel go smoothly.

Hygiene On Hand For Disadvantaged Youth

Primary health and wellbeing is something we may take for granted. Not this sector though.

The importance of hygiene kits for underprivileged people cannot be overstated.

This was made abundantly clear at a recent event sponsored by the Positive Impact Community Resource Center. Kits provided by this and other 7 non-profit centers, provide the basics that are so essential for those who don’t have access to such items.

Making Business Travel Work for Women with Families

Business travel is often seen as a whirlwind of glamor and excitement…by those who don’t need to do it. Those who do travel regularly know that while it can be glamorous and exciting, it’s often tiring and dull, too. If you’re a regular business traveller who also happens to be mother, you’ll know that it is extra-exhausting for you, adding yet more lines to an endless to-do list and taking you away from your kids more often than you’d like.

Here are 5 of the best travel destinations for you fitness loving men out there.

Hospital Admission Kits

Admission to a hospital occurs in various ways. Treatment that begins in the ER may require additional treatment that causes a patient to be unexpectedly admitted to the hospital. At other times, patients know they will be admitted. 

The admissions process begins by meeting with admission personnel who gather preliminary information. During the orientation process, the hospital admissions kit is supplied. The contents of a hospital admissions kit are items that outfit a recently-admitted patient in a hospital.

How to get organised for family travel

Whether you still use a good old pen and paper to stay organized or you’re more of a tech-savvy organizer, having one central place to keep all your vacation planning stored is crucial to planning a well-organized vacation. Keep your vacation to-do list, travel information, contact information for airlines and hotels, car rental information, passports, frequent flyer information and itineraries in one place like a dedicated folder and notebook or electronically with notebook programs and folders saved in the cloud.

Is Flashpacking the Future of Backpacking?

Is backpacking best left to the young, free and undiscerning? Many see it simply as a chance for eighteen-year-olds to put off real life for a while, getting drunk in ramshackle beach bars and sleeping in palm-frond huts.

But what happens when those undiscerning backpackers grow up without losing their yearning for real travel? They hit the road again as flashpackers.

How to feel your best before, during and after a long-haul flight

All the things you need to do to arrive at your destination feeling fresh and energized.

Let’s face it, long-haul flights can be draining. Between dragging your suitcase in and out of taxis, lining up at the check-in counter, eating average airport and airplane food and being crammed into a small space with hundreds of strangers, it’s hard to feel glamorous while flying. Sure, first class and business travel may be more glamourous with additional leg room, a better food and drink menu, and an amenities kit but the same problem usually remains — it’s hard to arrive at a destination feeling refreshed when you’ve been on a long-haul flight. The steps below will help you feel your best before, during and after a long-haul flight so you’re ready for big travel adventures when you arrive at your destination!

Mom on the Go - The Secret to Being Prepared

As I’m writing this, my family and I are heading high into the Appalachian mountains to a rental cabin where we've been going for 3 years in a row. My toddler and preschooler are begging for snacks, our dog, Gracie, has finally laid down in the back, my husband gravely stares at the 18-wheelers all around us slamming on their brakes, and our cartop carrier flaps in the wind. Did I bring shampoo, baby shampoo, hair detangler, deodorant, a comb or brush?

Vacation Rental Relief: A Toiletry Bag Makes an Impression and Eases Your Mind

After a friend of mine's Airbnb's guests leave, she can’t help but check how they rate their stay, and especially how they rate her as the hostess. Who can blame her? There is an actual release of oxytocin when someone gives you a "thumbs ups" on Facebook or fills a heart red on Instagram - it’s addictive!

Toiletry bags, a perfect gift!

A few years ago, my friend had a fairly major surgery. This wasn’t an emergency situation so she was able to make a plan in advance for everything in her life around the surgery. She scheduled the time off of work, lined up friends to watch the pets, arranged for family to come to stay with and take care of her children, and even made and froze several weeks of make-ahead meals. She picked out the clothes she’d wear to the hospital and, on the way home from work one day, bought some fun socks to wear during her stay to cheer her up and keep her perpetually cold feet warm and comfy while she’d be in the hospital. She remembered her phone and tablet chargers. Her husband took time off of work to be with her during the surgery and for some of the recovery time afterward.

Hygiene kits for Rehabilitation Centers and Hospice Care

Sometimes the unexpected happens to families and leaves them unprepared for basic daily routines, like personal hygiene. Scary and life changing situations, like vehicle or work accidents or quick onsets of health problems, can occur suddenly. Occasionally this requires time in a rehabilitation center, or worse yet, hospice care. Many times, when these events happen, patients and their families don’t have time to stop and think about grabbing their toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, soap, comb, deodorant, or other personal hygiene items. Family members are rushing to see their loved ones and are more worried about them and the situation at hand than about these mundane things. One way that rehabilitation facilities and hospice care can help is to provide patients and their loved ones with their own personal hygiene kits.

Travel Agencies Build Rapport and Returning Clients with a Custom Gift

As a travel agent, you invest your time and energy to be sure that your client’s vacation or business travel is hassle free, for the best rates possible, while protecting the interests and desires of your client. Even with all of the services you provide, one of the largest challenges in the industry is client retention and loyalty. Of course it goes without saying that further increasing the number of returning clients will provide a direct benefit to any agent’s or company’s bottom line. So how does one do that?

How to REALLY be prepared for college

Ah, freshman year. Independence...Freedom...Responsibility (that last one might take a little practice.) As always, it’s easiest to begin with the little things - and at the beginning. That part of the process where forethought, planning and preparation, we later learn, turn out to be decisive. We begin by shopping for schools. We compiled a list that makes sense (reach, realistic and safety schools). Before we knew it, time and applications and AP exams had passed; Jake had gotten into a school that he loved and that we were pretty sure we could afford (and that wasn’t too far from home). All of a sudden, we were at the beginning of that dreaded final step: packing.

The best marketing and branding decision you’re about to make

Back when I was still putting down my roots in my international travel company, I focused on the core first: making connections with clients and gaining new ones at every opportunity. I knew that I needed to advertise and in an effective way that would yield the results I was looking for. Then I discovered Convenience Kits International. They were (and are!) a perfect fit for my business needs. Their pre-assembled travel kits created opportunities for growth at every turn, and adding our logo to the kits was one of the smartest moves I ever made.
