NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 2, 2013) - Kim Orlando, founder of TravelingMom.com, has tips on how to find insider deals and turn any travel opportunity into a real adventure!
Whether you're booking a flight or planning a road trip, you always want to have activities on hand to keep not just the kids but the whole family entertained during travel. Rather than packing lots of electronics and cords, opt for a single device that does it all like this Windows 8 PC. It's the Acer Iconia W7 and it has a dock and Bluetooth keyboard that make it easy to switch from laptop to tablet. What's really great is it supports more than one person touching the screen at a time, so the kids can play games together. Plus, Windows 8 gives you access to your photos, files and sharing so it's a dream tool to keep us parents organized on-the-go!
One of my favorite ways to travel is to book a vacation rental instead of a hotel at my destination. They're ideal for families because they are traditionally about half the cost for twice the space and they provide flexibility and amenities like a kitchen, which saves on dining out. I know my kids really like to have their own room too. Check out HomeAway.com, which has more than 500,000 properties available for rent around the world of all sizes and for all budgets! With HomeAway, you can spend less time crammed in one room and more time re-connecting.
The best way to maximize your vacation time is to be organized. A perfect app for traveling that can help play your personal assistant and take worry off the table is TripIt. It's free and makes it so simple to organize all your travel plans in one place. Just take your airline, hotel and car rental confirmation emails and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. That's it! Like magic, this app creates your itinerary in one place including maps and directions then syncs your travel info with your calendar so all your information is where you need it including confirmation numbers. It's incredible!
