It's that time of year, and from tech recommendations to apps to avoid jet lag to general "Reilly Method" packing tips, the Girt team has all you nervous travellers covered.

It's important to stock up on distractions before a big trip, and while the go-to might be podcasts and some chill-out music, the big news to land today was that you can now download and watch a bunch of Netflix content offline. Stock up on "Stranger Things" before that long-haul flight.

If you need some more detailed advice about avoiding roaming charges, you can check out our write-up on that very topic. For the domestically data-conscious, Optus also announced a program for local customers to score bonus data by having ads displayed on their lock screens.

Any hot tips for tech-savvy travellers we missed? Hit us up in the comments or on the #GirtbyCNET hashtag @CNETAustralia on Twitter!
