From finding out about what you network provider can do for you, to setting your ‘out of office’ at work, there is lots of advice on how to make sure you stay in touch and avoid some of the worries that go with it.

If you are looking to keep connected, it might be worth looking at some of the options available to charge a device while travelling.
