You only need the hotel TV.

Mark explained: “If you left home without your smartphone plug but you still have the cable, plug it into the hotel room’s television and it will charge up your device.

“There should be a powered USB port on the side or back.”

Another hack is to take one travel adaptor – but pack an extension lead.

Saltzman revealed some other travel tips including reminding holidaymakers take pictures of their boarding pass.

He stated: “Take a screengrab of your boarding pass on your phone to create an offline version, in case the Internet connection isn’t good at the airport you won’t hold everyone up behind you.”

It’s called Focus – and it could completely revolutionise your stay away.

All settings can be customized, with activation dates and times.
