While packing can be a major pain, we’ve created a comprehensive packing list to make things easier for you. Have a major trip planned? This checklist will be a useful reminder to pack the basics for your trip, such as travel pillows, custom travel mugs, and sunglasses.
Sunglasses are a must-have for any trip. Whether it’s summer or winter, hopefully, you’ll see some sun during your trip! We recommend bringing a good pair of sunglasses that will protect you daily, as well as a less expensive pair that you don’t mind getting a little weathered on the beach or in the sea.
Purchasing a high-quality pair of headphones is an excellent pre-trip investment. Headphones are a must if you want to tune out the world and listen to your favorite album or learn more about your destination by listening to informative podcasts.
We recommend bringing an eye mask if you are a light sleeper. When you sleep in a hostel, you never know when someone in your dorm room will turn on the light in the middle of the night. You won’t even notice if you wear an eye mask. They’re also great to have in your hand luggage for long bus or train rides when you need to catch some shut-eye.
A travel pillow excludes the need to wriggle and shift around in search of a comfortable sleeping position that keeps you from falling asleep and collapsing onto the shoulder of the person next to you.
A travel pillow will keep your neck and spine supported and pain-free so you can relax and enjoy your trip.
A quick-drying and space-saving towel is a must-have when traveling. When traveling, avoid using large fluffy towels. Choose a towel to go, a small absorbent towel, and a quick-dry travel towel instead.
Portable Phone Charger
Depending on its size, a power bank can either fully charge a smartphone once or partially recharge it three times. To avoid having to deal with dead batteries for the duration of your trip, pick one based on how many devices you have and how often you use them.
Universal Plug Adapter
Traveling to multiple countries can be a real hassle trying to find the right plug adapter for your electronics. They are bulky and inconvenient to bring along if you will only be using them for a short period of time. The world’s first universal adapter is here to save the day.
Especially if you are a frequent traveler, you should buy at least one of these because of how many times you can reuse it.
Travel Toiletry Bag
How often have you discovered your toiletries leaking onto your travel clothes in your luggage?
A good travel toiletry bag helps you organise your toiletries and prevents toiletries from leaking onto your travel clothes.
First Aid Kit
You will likely not have to deal with any of this during your vacation. The adage “better safe than sorry” rings true here. It’s smart to bring along some bandages, antiseptic wipes, and pain relievers.
Take mosquito repellent and cream to treat bites if you’re traveling to a hot country where mosquitoes are common. Eye drops for dry eyes, pain relievers for burns, and allergy pills are also useful to have on hand.
Carrying a first aid kit will protect you from infection and provide you with an immediate exit if anything goes wrong.
While traveling, you will go to many different locations. Therefore, it is essential to bring disinfecting wipes so that you can feel safe touching anything. You can use these at any point in the journey. Take these wipes with you on your trip, and you won’t have to worry about your personal hygiene the whole time.
Luggage Cup Holder
One of the best things you can pack is a luggage cup holder. Wrap it around your suitcase’s handle for instant access to two drink holders, one drink holder, and a place to store your phone or other small items.
This luggage cup holder will save your life while waiting in line at the airport gate with a hot beverage in one hand and your boarding pass and photo ID in the other.
Custom Travel Mugs
The custom travel mugs will come in handy on multiple occasions throughout your trip, whether you want a hot drink to-go from a nearby cafe, the free hostel breakfast, or the kettle in your private room.
Traveling can be a life-changing experience that leaves you with memories that will last a lifetime. But, before you can experience the allure of the world’s cities, you must first pack. And packing correctly can make all the difference in reducing stress and saving money in the long run.
