The days are getting longer, the breeze is getting warmer, and you can almost smell the charcoal burning. Summer is right around the corner, but before you throw on your board shorts and go all sun's-out-guns-out, we have some expert travel hacks to take your summer vacation game up a notch. 

5 HACKS TO DO SUMMER TRAVEL BETTER

1. REFRESH THE WAY YOU TRAVEL.   

The dog days are notorious for sending us from the pool, to the airport, to the beach, to out on the town all in the course of 24 hours. Floyd's 99 Refresh is the one product that can get you through it all.

  • Use it as a soothing lotion for when you forget to put on sunscreen and you know you are going to feel it in the morning.
  • Use it as a moisturizer to hydrate your skin against the dry airplane air.
  • Use it in your hair to freshen up your look on the go.
  • Cover up that chlorine-scented evidence that you've been pool partying with the best of them.

2. STAY SHARP OUT THERE.

If there's one thing that'll kill your summer vacation vibes before you even unpack your bag, it's reaching into that suitcase and cutting your finger on the razor that's been floating around and dulling it's blades. Ever had razor burn and sunburn at the same time? Save yourself the crippling sense of shame and throw a binder clip on the head of your razor when you pack.

3. CARRY THE SWISS ARMY KNIFE OF STYLE. 

To be a true summer warrior, you have to be ready for anything. Barbeque? Light it up. Vegas tonight? Cancel my appointments. Pool Party? Hold my phone. If you want to be ready to go anywhere, go with a styling product that can adapt to any situation: Floyd's 99 Molding Paste. It's got enough hold for any style, but can be reworked and styled throughout the day for whatever change of scene suits your fancy.

4. KEEP IT CLEAN, YA FILTHY ANIMAL.

Got extended travel plans? Do yourself a favor and keep the inside of your suitcase clean between destinations. The number one nasty captain? Your shoes. From the park, to the mountains, to the beach, those puppies have been picking up whatever dirty crud has been left behind. When it comes time to throw them back in your bag, grab the shower cap from your hotel room and wrap it around 'em. Problem solved.

5. DON'T GET SUCKERED BY TRAVEL SITES  

We all do it. You get bored at work and start browsing the latest attractions for your next getaway. A cruise ship with it's own minor league baseball team? Don't mind if I do. But did you know that your search history can actually give travel sites information that allows them to display higher prices on trips you're more likely to book? It's a simple fix: clear your browsing history and cache, and they're none the wiser. A few more bucks in your pocket for that beer served in a cup made out of bacon that you bookmarked.
