Traveling can get stressful, from long lines at the check-in counter, to noisy, overcrowded airport terminal itself. Delays, cancellations, diversions, and misconnections are never within our control, but having a place to make the most of your time in the airport is. 

LoungeBuddy revolutionises the airport experience by giving any traveler the ability to discover, book, and access premium airport lounges worldwide. Lounge access was previously reserved only for elite frequent travelers. Now, with LoungeBuddy in hand, all travelers can instantly book guaranteed access to their very own airport oasis.


Global Entry

Global Entry is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. Members enter the United States through automatic kiosks at select airports.

Citizens of Argentina, Colombia, Germany, India, Panama, Singapore, South Korea, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom and Mexican Nationals are eligible Global Entry memberships.

This reduces your wait times, no processing lines, no paperwork and is available at major U.S. airports.

Google Pixel 3

We know that there are plenty of smartphones available in the market, but here are 5 reasons why we’re choosing the Google Pixel 3 for our next trip:

1.Explore the world around you with Google Lens. Learn about the history of an art piece in the museum, know what plant or animal you saw during your hike, look up a dish right from the menu, translate words, get directions instantly - all with just one click.

2. Goodbye grainy zoomed-in images with Super Res Zoom

3. With Group Selfie, faces no longer dominates the entire picture. It can now perfectly fit in the background visual including mountains, sea or even that statue which you may have otherwise missed

4. Fast charging which is definitely a must when travelling. Pixel 3 comes with an 18 Watt fast charger which gives you 7 hours of use within 15 minutes of charging

5. Free unlimited online storage for all of your photos and videos
