4 Packing Hacks to Lighten Your Suitcase

By JIFUtravel, Travel Motivation, Travel Tips No Comments

As we gear up to travel and explore, let’s begin thinking about how to pack efficiently. These tips are courtesy of Travel and Leisure.

Pack for a week

McAlpin suggests packing a week's worth of clothes, even if your trip is longer, and washing necessary items along the way.

Travel and Leisure
 Pack around one basic color

Whether it’s black, navy, or olive green, McAlpin recommends choosing one basic color to pack around. "It's an old rule of thumb, but it really works," she said. But even if you're simplifying your clothing choices to save space, you don't have to completely sacrifice style. McAlpin suggests taking the opportunity to use accessories to mix up your outfits

McAlpin
Don’t pack any more than three pairs of shoes

According to McAlpin, people often overpack shoes, but setting a maximum of three pairs will help you pare down your wardrobe and avoid overpacking. Always pack shoes at the bottom of your suitcase near the wheels in order to distribute weight evenly and reduce strain on your back and shoulders.

Travel and Leisure
Use compression cubes and bags

Packing cubes are a popular travel accessory, although cubes that involve compression technology will not only keep you organized, but they'll also help you save space in your luggage. Similarly, compression plastic bags that remove excess air are perfect for storing puffer jackets or other bulky gear. McAlpin also recommends using one compression bag for laundry at the end of your trip in order to keep dirty and clean clothes separate and to lock in odors.

What is a JIFU Buddypass?

By JIFU Buddy Pass, JIFUtravel, Travel Tips No Comments

Unsold inventory hurts the bottom line. Empty seats, unsold rooms, and unrented cars must be sold, even if it’s at prices well below retail. Travel providers secretly share their unsold remnant inventory to online travel providers.

How can JIFU offer average discounts of 33-44% savings on hotels compared to the big name websites? It’s simple, we all get access to hotels, condos, excursions, activities, cruises, and rental cars from the same place at the same prices. To make a profit and pay for advertising, other “discount” travel sites mark the prices up. At JIFU, we take those savings and pass them directly on to you, our members.

If JIFU doesn’t mark up the prices like the other sites, how does JIFU and its Member Affiliates make money? Instead of marking your prices way up like the other sites, JIFU is a month-to-month membership with prices as low as $25 for unlimited travel benefits and full access to hotels, condominiums, theme parks, excursions, rental cars, cruises and more.
