Scan Travel Documents when Traveling Abroad

This is the document manager in my speaking. I find it incredibly useful to have scan copies of essential travel documents stored in the cloud when I travel. This way I am not worried about carrying photocopies – and if I lose anything I know I have a copy stored safely.

I usually use the following tools:
– Dropbox
– Google Drive

All the following documents are scanned and stored:
– Passport (ID page and Last page)
– Visas for the trip
– Hotel vouchers
– Airline vouchers
– Any other online bookings like Boats, Taxis, Theater Shows etc.

Recommend you start doing the same. In fact there is no real need to print Airline Vouchers and Hotel Vouchers any more. You can directly show these to relevant authorities on your smart-phone or tablet. Both Google Drive and Dropbox have good smartphone and tablet apps, that allow you to store documents offline.
