Holiday travel is fairly different from business travel; therefore, the stuff you take is not going to be the same. For either kind of travel you still need the basic toiletries: toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, hair brush, etc. However, based on the travel plans, you have the chance to leave behind a number of your supplies at home and make use of the free items hotels and inns have to offer, such as shampoo, soap, hair dryer and robe. A quick website check or phone call will allow you to confirm the products they can offer for you. Pre-planning and packing smart can make your trip more easygoing and pleasurable.
Make sure to use the right sized suitcase for the length and objective of the vacation. If you don’t have the correct size, or your bag is broken like broken wheels, the zipper pulls, or the stitching is coming undone, you can borrow a bag from a friend or get a new bag. Bags that are in bad condition can break and fail to contain your items. If only going for a weekend getaway, you won’t need as many clothes as a lengthier trip would require. Learn about your destination, and the things you plan to attend. Pack only the clothing you need to accomplish those events.
Once you have the luggage and the things you want to take with you, it’s time to pack the bag. If you are on medication, you should always put in those items first, and put them in a purse or smaller bag that you carry with you apart from other bags that may not be with you on your trip. This way, if you are separated from your bags, you have accessibility to them. Taking objects that don’t require any ironing is preferred; however, if your trip requires dress attire, no-iron clothing are favored and packing them appropriately can keep you from having to iron them once at your location. If your bag has a loop for hangers, put clothes that are on hangers in the suitcase first. Start with larger items: shirts and dresses. Be sure to lay each piece in on their own, and smooth the creases and wrinkles out. T-shirts, jeans, and shorts can be rolled up, which will not only prevent them from getting wrinkles, but will help to fill up the suitcase. The tighter the things are protected in the bags, the better they will weather the trip and arrive in excellent condition. Small items such as jewelry, socks, underpants, etc. can be stuffed into shoes, and other areas left after packing clothing. If you plan to travel frequently, you may want to keep a separate stock of toiletry items just for travel, so that they are always ready to take and go.
Wrap shoes in plastic to keep shoe polish or dirt from getting on your other packed objects. Put these and larger items in the bag at where they will be at the bottom when moving. Put toiletry items into plastic bags as well. This will hold any liquid or powder that leaks if they open accidentally (If traveling by air, you will want to keep liquids handy for carry-on luggage as they have to go through the security scanners apart). Check with traveling partners to see if you can share things that may not be given or readily available where you are staying; hair dryers are a great example- why would you need more than one? If you are staying in one place for a long period, you can pack lighter by using the in-house cleaning services- dry-cleaning, washing machines and dryers.
To optimize your packing for travel, continually consider if you really need an item, is it crucial? Exercise smart packing and you can go anywhere with ease and peace of mind. The more you travel, the simpler packing becomes.
