3. Use Maps Without Wifi + Free International Maps

You’re stuck in some international location, just got off a train, don’t have wifi or an expensive data plan, so you’re shifting around between notes and the screenshot of the play by play directions provided by Google. Basically, you’re lost. And you don’t even know how to ask for help because you don’t speak the language and you’re not even really sure where you’re going. There’s another way! This guide will teach you in a few quick steps how to search for a location and download the map so that you don’t need wifi when you get there if you go a few steps in the wrong direction. Genius!

FYI: In newer versions of Google Maps, this is just built in! So yay, no more getting lost.

And if all of that fails, you can print free National Geographic maps of any country.

4. Travel Sized Toiletries

Get a free slew of samples from Proctor and Gamble when you sign of for their free sample kit with things like shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, and more in sample sizes that you can easily travel with.

5. Find the Cheapest Gas Near You

When you’re traveling, it can be damn hard to find the cheapest gas. With this app, GasBuddy, you can not only locate gas that’ll save $5.00-10.00 bucks on a fill up, but you can also do a trip cost estimator. Road trip anyone?

5. Free Stuff in Las Vegas

In the city of lights, glitz, glam, and lots of other things, there is a lot of free stuff to be had. On this adult playground, get endless free shows, entertainment, some free food, crappy casino gifts, etc. Just be sure not to get lost in the gambling part… grab the free stuff and head for the door. Otherwise, that free cup and keychain, not to mention the free show, might not be worth all the cash the burned a hole in your pocket gambling.

6. Last Minute Supplies? Free Prime Membership

I know I’ve had many occasions where I’m frantic, running out of time and need stuff before I fly out – like deet for keeping bests away, a bandana or hat, sunblock, maybe even a new swimsuit top. Who wants to go running around looking for those things once you’ve arrived in your destination. With a free Prime membership, you can get 2-day shipping on tons of stuff on Amazon absolutely free or pay just a few bucks to overnight it or even get it the same day. Boom. Problem solved.

7. Get into Luxury Airport Lounges Free

I’m not embarrassed to admit, I’ve done this at least half a dozen times. You can get in with credit cards, mileage programs, etc., but the easiest way to get into an airport lounge is to ask someone entering if you can be their guest – it doesn’t cost them anything and you’ll get free food, drinks, wifi, newspapers, magazines, and lovely place to rest in between flights.
