Vacations are great, aren’t they? It’s a chance to get away from life’s stresses and unwind, or see some place new. Every part of the vacation is exciting and enjoyable…except the packing. These travel tips will take your mind off the stress of knowing what to take and what to leave behind.

Need vs. Want

We’d all pack the kitchen sink if we could but as more airlines are cracking down on overweight fees and limits for luggage, it’s important that you stick to a plan of what you’ll need over what you want to take. Check the weather to help you choose the right clothes and bring one to two off-season items to be prepared for any weather changes.

Personal Items

With new regulations on travel there are some things you simply can’t carry on airplanes anymore. Travel sizes of your favorite shampoos, conditioners and other toiletries are usually available in drug stores. Again the key to travel tips of the personal nature is not to bring more than what you’ll need or use. First aid kits, over-the-counter medications and deodorant are musts and can be expensive if you purchase from the hotel where you stay.

Fold With Care

Rolling clothes instead of folding has long since been hailed as a great way to reduce wrinkles and create more room in your suitcase. When you are packing your suitcase, think in sequence of unpacking. What will you wear first? If it’s pajamas or a nice suit, put those items on top so you aren’t rummaging around for what you need.

Basic travel tips such as these can be applied to vacation traveling as well as business. They can also help you choose how to pack in order to save space and money during your travels.
