Woman Standing On A Suitcase

Packing for a trip can an arduous event. Some travelers can pack two weeks’ worth of gear into their bags for a long weekend. Others pack a bit too lightly and forget important things like medication or toothpaste! Savvy travelers know how to pack perfectly and maximize their travel experience.

Always make a travel list! From soap to sundries, lotions to loafers, you should have a list of everyday items used listed somewhere. This is essential to making sure you don’t forget anything as each time you pack you can refer to that list which should be tucked away on your phone or email.

Pack light to travel light. If you can manage with a carry-on, do it. Try taking half of the things you need and twice the money.

Pack a sleep mask and ear plugs. These can come in handy on a plane, train or in your hotel room.

Capitalize on empty suitcase space. Roll your clothes, instead of folding them. Stuff socks, underwear, and accessories inside of shoes and boots as this maximizes space.

Keep a shawl in your carry-on. This can be used as a blanket on the plane, a scarf if it’s cold or a shawl on an evening out.

Bag it. Kitchen sandwich bags can be used to hold your accessories and also toiletries.

Skip airport snacks and bring your own. Not only can save yourself a lot of money, you will keep your hunger at bay in case you have a delayed flight. Snacks can be almonds, sandwiches, fruit.

Bring a multi-socket extension cord. Although newer hotels have USB ports in rooms, it’s best to have an extra outlet to charge all of your electronics at once.

Make photocopies before leaving home. If you’re traveling out of the country, make two photocopies of your passport. Use your smartphone to take pictures of your car in the airport’s parking garage and do the same for your luggage and its contents in case it gets lost and ensure you email this to yourself so you can access it via email once abroad just incase you can’t access it on your phone.
