So, you’re finally achieving your lifelong dream of visiting Europe, Asia, or one of the world’s other amazing continents. And you’ve already picked a travel buddy. Great! What happens if you lose track of them? Do you have a text message spy to find where they are? Or a plan to meet up somewhere if you get separated? If not, you should. Here’s how you can prevent losing your travel companion.
It isn’t easy to stay connected when you’re in another country. Chances are, your cell phone won’t receive reception. Before you even set foot at the airport, you should call your service provider and find out what options are available to you – each one is different. But there are other ways you can stay connected, aside from using cell phone service. Portable Wi-Fi routers are one option. They fit conveniently in your pocket or bag and provide high-speed Internet access, no matter where you are. This way, you’ll still be able to use your navigation app, Internet browser, and even text message spy app.
Come Up With A Plan
What happens if you’re lost and can’t get in touch with each other? Do you plan to meet back up at the hotel or AirBnB? What about an easy to find, famous landmark? You need to figure out what’ll be the best course of action for you and your friend or family member. Personally, I always like to meet back up at the hotel, unless it’s a few hours away from where we are. When that’s the case, I like deciding on a meetup location as soon as we arrive in town.
Schedule Time Apart
Just because you’re traveling together, doesn’t mean you have to do everything with each other. There are going to occasions when you want to see a particular attraction, and your travel companion doesn’t. You should plan for these situations ahead of time. Agree to meet back up at a certain place or time later that day, or check in with each other using a text message spy app. This kind of program will let you view your companion’s GPS location, so you can make sure that they didn’t get lost while out on their own.
