Travel has become more inconvenient than enjoyable. The packing, the commute to the airport, and the long security checkpoint lines – all before you board. Even the planning of a family getaway is an arduous task. For many, it’s enough to put off that vacation and stay home instead.

Luckily, there are travel tools designed to make travel less of a hassle. Hate to pack? There’s a service that eliminates packing forever. Don’t know where to eat or what to see? Let an app plan your daily itineraries. Too lazy to carry luggage? Send it off in advance. Check out these simple ways to put your next trip on cruise control.

Rather than hauling luggage with you, ship it instead. This way, you can travel light while your clothes and other non-essentials await you at your destination. Using a service like FedEx or UPSlets you track it to ensure it actually reaches your in-laws’ house or hotel (just make sure an authorized person is there to receive it). The key is to ship well in advance of your trip, using the cheaper “ground” option. Depending on the luggage weight, the cost could be equivalent to what an airline charges, but any premium would be worth the sanity you save during busy travel seasons.
