Smartphones and tablets are our number one companion when it comes to the beach, cottages, airports and long drives. But how can you protect your device while your travelling? Here are a few tips:

  • Purchase a waterproof case to help prevent against water damage and sand if you are at the beach or pool area
  • Make sure your phone or tablet has a screen protector on it to help prevent against scratches
  • Always keep your devices locked up in safe to avoid theft
  • If you have an unlocked phone be sure to purchase an international sim card to avoid roaming charges
