Useful Travel Tips for iPhone Users

undefined

The iPhone has become an incredibly convenient travel tool. From providing tons of insight into a destination to its convenience in functioning as a boarding pass, it’s essentially become a must have travel tool. Apple recently introduced iOS 10, the latest version of its iPhone operating system which comes with several useful enhancements and upgrades that may help make your next trip much smoother.

Going through the photos you’ve taken and sharing them is always fun, and iOS 10 makes it much easier to go your photo library. With its intelligent search capabilities, you can search for terms like “beach” or even ask Siri to find photos from a certain time and have them pulled up instantly.

Are you depending on public transit to get around? Chances are you’re probably using Uber or Lyft. With the new version of Apple Maps, you can request an Uber ride while within the app, incredibly useful if you’re trying to plan your itinerary in an unfamiliar city.

The built-in keyboard has become much smarter about autocorrecting for users typing in languages beyond English. By enabling multiple languages, iOS will no longer try to autocorrect your typing into nonsensical words.

Running low on battery without a charger in sight can be panic inducing. While iPhones are known for their stellar battery life, you can potentially extend your battery a little bit longer when it’s low by simply placing your phone face down. If you tend to receive a lot of notifications, this new feature can be a lifesaver.

Are TSA Delays Covered Under Your Insurance?

undefined

Probably everyone who frequently travels has dealt with some type of delay. With the increasingly stringent TSA requirements, one of the slowest steps in making your flight is having to wait in security checkpoint lines. These lines can take quite some time, especially if your destination includes a foreign country. It’s not unusual to miss a flight because of a TSA delay or suddenly finding yourself unable to get on another flight because it’s already full.

You might be wondering whether such a delay will be covered under your travel insurance policy, assuming you purchased one. Unfortunately, a delay in your trip due to the TSA security check will not be covered by your insurance. A delay because of a mechanical breakdown in the aircraft? Yes, it’s covered. A hurricane that prevents or affects travel? It’s possible. To know exactly what’s covered, make sure you thoroughly read your policy coverage or contact your travel insurance provider.

TSA delays do not fall under what the travel insurance industry calls “peril coverage” as there is nothing perilous about it. If you’re concerned about running into such a situation the next time you plan a long flight, the best way to avoid such delays is to arrive at the airport early so you have more than enough time should unforeseen TSA circumstances arise or get TSA Pre✓ and use the shorter lines at the airports.
