Know These 5 Ultimate Packing Tips for Easy travels
Traveling Overseas? Remember, the last time you had packed a lot of stuff for the trip, yet ended up skipping some essential items? Are you worried that you would end up with unnecessary bags once again? Worry not! If you’re planning for a trip in this post-Covid situation, there is a list of things you necessarily need to stack for smart packing. Know these 5 ultimate packing tips for easy travel which will make your trip a lot easier.
Pick suitable bags
Now, if you are going on a trekking trip to the Himalayas, bringing three trolleys won’t be a mindful choice. Pick bags which you can carry.
Begin with a packing list
Making a list before drowning yourself in a pile of items is a step that makes packing easier. A packing list will help you remember the essentiality of an item.
Make sure you sort the “essential items” from your packing checklist first before moving on with the rest. Put rolled clothes at the bottom of the suitcase. They will act as shock-absorbers and prevent the toppling of more delicate items you have stacked inside. Only pack the necessary pair of shoes; unnecessary shoes and sandals will do nothing but stack more loads.
The best way to pack is being minimal. Use packing cubes to stay organised and save space as well. Remember to keep in mind the length of the trip because that decides the quality of items in your suitcase. For shorter trips (three to five days), you may be able to go on with a pair of underwear and socks per day; one or two sets of outfits, pajamas, sets of sports clothing (if you wish to go for active sporting) and one or two pairs of shoes. For longer trips (more than a week), you can curate your outfits, shoes, and clothes accordingly.
For more active travel, you should bring sturdy hiking shoes, easy-drying clothes, a backpack, snacks, and any other necessary equipment. Go through your packing list again and again before stacking them in your bag. Also, don’t forget to bring accessories such as scarves and belts if you wish so. Roll up them and stack them in your carry-on luggage for colder nights or on a beach.
If you are going on a group tour, the travel agency will most likely provide you with a packing list to make it easier for you. If not, check online for thebest ways to pack a suitcase and add items to it.
It is a good packing tip for travel to carry garbage bags with you just in case. If you’re able to do laundry, then you can even curb the amount of clothing you bring to the trip; just pack a travel laundry kit in your bag. Remember to stack a few plastic bags; you never know when you need them!
If you’re planning to bring work on the trip, don’t forget to stack your laptops or iPad in a carry-on bag for easier access.
You need to consider the weather of course. If you are planning a trip to a warm place like the jungle or the Caribbean Sea, you don’t need a jacket or a quirky skirt in your packing checklist. You will need a lot of other things if you are planning a ski trip like a whole set of mufflers, gloves, handguards, snow boots, and more.
Make sure you talk to your travel agency and get travel insurance done before you leave for a trip. This will help you get insurance coverage for your valuable items and ensure safe travel as well. Go through the details of the policy before jumping on to buy a package.
Post- Covid smart packing
One of the most important things to consider when traveling after COVID is making sure that you have all the essentials. The above-given suitcase packing tips will help you pack more efficiently but there are a few more items needed to be added to your packing list.
• Hand sanitizer, it is best to use those with more than 60% alcohol content
• Gloves to prevent unnecessary contact
• Carry disinfecting wipes for cleaning surfaces where you easily interact with substances
These items will ensure your safety and hygiene during your journey. Therefore, do not forget to add them while packing for travel.
Triple-check your packing list before leaving your house. Make sure you always prioritise your healthy demeanor above all and have a face mask on every time you go out.
