- A photo of the front of your hotel. Even if you can't communicate with your taxi or Uber driver, showing them a photo of where to take you can be invaluable.
- A photo of your hotel's business card. Maybe your taxi driver won't recognize a photo of your hotel but the hotel's business card will have the hotel's name, address, and phone number on it so there is less confusion if your driver doesn't speak your language.
- A photo of your room number. People often forget their room number, especially if they have been traveling/switching hotels frequently.
- Photos of your hotel room when you arrive (ditto for your rental car). This way if there is any question of damages you will have proof of what the hotel room (rental car) looked like when you checked in.
- Photos of your hotel room when you leave (ditto for your rental car). This way if there is any question of damages you will have proof of what the hotel room (rental car) looked like when you checked out. Make sure all photos are date stamped.
- A photo of the emergency exit map on your hotel room door. In an emergency you can always consult the photo on your phone to see how to exit the hotel.
- A photo of where you park. Especially if you are parking at a large resort with multiple parking lots. Be sure to take a photo of the sign describing where you are parked (many lots say something like Level D, green section) so you can easily find your car later.
- Take photos of anything you want to remember for a review or a blog post later. If the breakfast buffet is particularly good I may take a photo of it to add to a review, if the nightclub across the street is still bumping at 3am I may take a photo of that for similar purposes.
- Take a photo of the safe combination/pass code. This way if you forget the code you set it will be easy enough to look it up on your phone instead of calling the front desk for assistance.
- A photo of your paid bill (digital receipts are easier to deal with than paper receipts).
