Breeze Through Customs
Officially authorized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Mobile Passport expedites the customs process for U.S. citizens and Canadian visitors at three cruise ports and 26 airports across the country, including the Orlando International Airport. Just enter your profile information as it appears on your valid, official passport and answer five short questions about your trip. Then you will receive a CBP receipt with an encrypted barcode that is valid for four hours. At your port of entry, find the designated line for Mobile Passport Control, show your passport to the CBP officer and scan the barcode on your receipt. Doing the work before you arrive helps to avoid the hassle. For an additional fee, Mobile Passport Plus users can automate data entry by scanning their passport information into the app and securely storing it for easy access during future trips.
Available on iOS or Android devices, free for basic version and $14.99/year for premium version
Never Lose Important Travel Documents
Tile devices are popular with individuals who lose their phone or their keys often. After establishing a Bluetooth connection between a mobile device and a Tile device, location information is communicated via the Tile app. Just as it works with finding lost necessities like keys, it can also work to keep track of important documents during your travels. If you’re worried about losing your passport or misplacing your plane ticket, just tuck the Tile Slim into your passport holder and keep any other necessary travel documents there as well.
$30 for Tile device, free for basic version of the app and $29.99/year for premium version
Keep Track of Your Pet
The uses for this device are two-fold: track your pet’s location and monitor their daily activity levels. For easy tracking, set up your pet’s safe place (there can be multiple depending on where your pet hangs out most) then connect to Wi-Fi to put the Whistle 3 GPS Pet Tracker & Activity Monitor in power save mode. It will then notify you if your pet leaves their safe place. This provides an added layer of protection, as well as peace of mind for you while traveling, because the device’s GPS, Wi-Fi and cellular technology allow you to see where your pet is at anytime and help you find them if they get lost. Using the Whistle 3 app, you can also monitor the intensity and length of your pet’s activity then customize daily fitness goals based on their breed, weight and age.
Subscription required for device to work (starts at $6.96/month), Whistle 3 app is free
