Helpful tips for traveling with electronics

When people travel for business, they tend to bring a lot of electronics. They may need a computer and cell phone to contact work, plus a personal cell and maybe even a tablet for watching movies or reading on the plane. It's a lot of stuff to keep track of. Here are some tips for hassle-free travel with electronics:

Get a universal charger
If you are traveling outside of the U.S., you will need a universal charger. This interchangeable device will allow you to adjust your chargers to fit in power outlets around the world. You'll be able to use them at the airport and in your hotel to keep your electronics charged and ready for business.

Use a cord keeper
Chances are you'll have a couple chargers with you. Instead of tossing them in a ball and into your briefcase, purchase a chord-organizing sleeve. This handy case has straps to hold each individual charger in place and zips up to keep them safe and separate from the rest of the items in your luggage. It's also a great way to quickly check if you have all the device cords you need before leaving home or the hotel. You can also stash your mobile chargers to use in one of Thrifty's long term car rentals.
