    Replace all your socks with real wool socks. Generic Decathlon/REI ones work fine, fancy brand name ones like Darn Tough also work fine. Just look at the materials used.
    Keeps your foot and shoes dry.

    Slippers. Frick having to take shoes on/off whenever I need to piss in long haul flights or having to go for a quick run to a store from my hotel.

      What's an acceptable minimum? I've seen socks that were labeled/packaged as "real wool socks," but the actual wool content varies wildly. I've seen as little as 2%, all the way up to like 21%.

      If you take your shoes off on a flight you don't belong in civilized society

    The world doesn't revolve around you, so don't be a bellend. Smile and be polite.

    The journey:
    Don't be late for your flight, train, bus etc - not only are you making your travel sour, but you also make the travel sour for your fellow passengers.

    At your destination:
    Go with the flow. Don't over plan, but also don't under plan. Don't be a beg-packer. Move your eyes away from your smartphone, nobody cares about your mediocre travel videos.

    Buy your flight attendants some candy from duty free and give it to them while you're boarding. Just make sure:
    There are individual wrapped pieces making it easier to share with the crew
    They're in your section
    They aren't huge c**ts
    Small intro about how much you appreciate what they do and this is a small token of your appreciation

    Only done this on international flights, but they will more often than not treat you better, be it gift baskets, getting your meal before everyone else, or just better overall service. They won't upgrade you, but it will make your trip more pleasant

      Do Americans actually do this?
      It's just so painfully obviously a "bribe" to get better service or hope for an upgrade. If you were thankful, you'd give the gift near the end of the flight.

        It's simply a nice gesture that puts me out less than 10 bucks. If I get perks, great. If not, so what? Why does doing something nice trigger eurocucks so hard?

        I get you book budget airlines, but when you take long flights with proper carriers, it's nice to have a flight crew with a positive attitude

          Thanks for confirming that you're a revenue passenger.
          Just to let you know, if you see moderately well-dressed people giving gifts to FAs and receiving special attention from them afterwards, they're employees paying a fraction of what you're paying.

      Good, comfortable shoes. You're going to end up walking a lot and they make a huge difference.

      The only time I've ever benefited from buttering up a flight attendant was to avoid checking a bag, and that was just by being friendly with her. I didn't give her anything. I've also avoided checking my carry on by outright ignoring the demand to check it due to lack of space, acting like I hadn't heard anything, and acting surly and disagreeable when one of them called me on it. Aside from not checking my bag there's absolutely nothing they have to offer me. I just want to sleep for as long as possible on my flight. I don't want any more of the airline's bad food, which I usually don't eat in the first place.

    If someone asks to switch seats with you on the plane, you can answer normally (Yes/No/Frick off), but there is one more way you can answer it.
    >I paid $40 extra to reserve this seat. If you're willing to reimburse me, you can have it.
    Doesn't matter if you didn't actually pay extra, they don't know that. Once you bring this to their attention, they're more likely to give up. If they're actually willing to pay you to swap seats, then you've got a little extra spending cash for your trip.

      The reason they’re asking to swap seats is they didn’t want to pay for one in the first place.

    If you carry cash in USD, make sure they are fairly new. Conversely, don’t accept 2006 (for example) bills if you think you might need to change them for local currency again. Many countries in Asia and the Middle East just won’t accept them.

      Cambodia was the worst about this. Those bills needed to be absolutely fricking PRISTINE.

    In many countries cigs are much cheaper and more socially acceptable than the US, if you buy a few packs and offer smokes to random people at the bar you can make a lot of friends quickly.

    How can you make some pocket change while you're traveling? End goal sustain keep traveling expenses, like what kind of content can I sell while on going around (twitch, yt, photos) or what skill/knowledge could I sell anywhere I go to keep on going?

    I wanted to start a thread on this question but rather to post a stupid question than start a stupid thread
