Travel agent fees. Airfare hikes. Overbooked hotels. No in-flight entertainment. Home security breaches…  As the saying goes “I need a vacation from this vacation” and if you’ve found yourself in any of these situations, you might have uttered those words yourself!

Luckily, modern technology can help make our vacations more enjoyable – from finding the best deals to keeping an eye on your house while you’re away to finally diving into that book you’ve been wanting to read for months.
