Packing checklist: what to pack when you travel?

Today (August 14, 2020): Travel tip: packing checklist.

Whether it is your first holiday or you are a seasoned globetrotter, packing your luggage can be stressful. Although always avoidable, packing mishaps are easily made and they can range from inconvenient occurrences (e.g. traveling to the Maldives without your beachwear) to disastrous events (arriving at the airport without your passport or discovering you left the country without your wallet)

So, it’s always helpful to have a list with travel essentials you may want to pack for your vacation. To help you pack well every time, I have created packing the ‘ultimate’ packing checklists (one for men and one for women), which can serve as a reference as to what to pack, whether you are planning an international holiday, a weekend getaway, or even a long-term, around-the-world adventure.

If you are traveling to a destination abroad, the most important thing to keep in mind is your passport, visas, and vaccinations. Make sure that your passport is up to date, has as least six months of validity, and has enough blank pages for any stamps. Also, give yourself plenty of time to apply for any visas that you might need and arrange for a visit to a travel clinic if any special medications or vaccines are needed. Also, always travel with a copy of your passport, credit card, and bank contacts, as well as a list of medications and your emergency contacts.

  1. My English not so good sorry. Missing sun lotion and allergies pills when you get attacked by those insects , no matter insect repellent you use.
    As well, you should add what to bring with me in the plane , in case my luggage do not follow which happens quite often! Such as a complete change and medication never in the luggage,
    Besides, love your blog I have just discovered.

  2. On an unrelated subject (because I didn’t know where else in your blog to ask) – what tips can you share for having a 5 star experience at a 3 star hotel? I hope that I don’t sound disrespectful or condescending it’s just that I like to feel pampered when I travel.
    Thank you
