Packing For Your Summer Holiday

Published, 2 years ago

Unless you’re super organised, usually you get away only to find that you’ve left something behind. Packing can be stressful, but it’s essential, and there’s a knack to it, which if you can learn, will save you precious time and worry.

Accidentally leaving a possession at home is one of those things, unless you’ve left your passport or mobile of course. For the most part, you can scour through duty-free for what you need and the holiday can commence without any major bumps. However, if you fancy being completely prepared and stress-free, then learn how to pack practically and efficiently for your upcoming summer holiday.

Be Prepared

Although you can be prepared for the travelling stage, such as purchasing coach, train, and ferry tickets in advance, and reserving a car parking space at the airport if you plan to drive there and back, this often doesn’t reflect in the packing stage.

With the help of an online guide such as the one from Mr Hudson Explores, you can be prepared in advance for what you need to pack. The guide can help you decide what each day might entail and therefore, benefit you from over packing or forgetting something important. For example, if you’re travelling somewhere hot, be sure to consider packing sun cream and after sun lotion, or to save on space, purchase them on holiday but be sure to buy them both from a chemist to ensure good quality.

Create The All Important Plan

You needn’t schedule every last minute of your holiday, but it’s certainly a good idea to know what the plan for each day is. This way, you’ll be able to see and do as much as you can, avoid wasting time and feel more excited and eager to get up and go. It also helps when you start packing. If you are planning on exploring the city or going off on adventures that require you to be on your feet all day you need to ensure you’re pakcing a good sturdy pair of shoes. Whereas, in comparison, if you know you will planning on sitting on a beach or by the pool all day, a pair of sandals or flip flops will be more suited. Making these plans in advance will help you save space when you are packing.

Don’t Go Too Heavy

Always check the weight restrictions that your airline has in place. You don’t want to have to pay a fine, and start your summer holiday off on a low note. Packing light is more easily said than done, but remember that you don’t necessarily have to pack clothes for each day that you’re there, as you can wash them if you’re staying in an apartment or if your hotel has laundry services. Pack up the items you’re thinking of taking ahead of time, and then the night before the day you’re due to depart go back through and be a little more ruthless with the intention of cutting down your luggage.

Save On Toiletries

Toiletries will take up valuable space and considerably increase the weight of your suitcase, so bear in mind that you’ll be able to purchase them once you’ve landed. Always try and take travel sized goods with you and ensure that they come in 100ml or less containers; otherwise you won’t be able to fly with them. Decant the products into small pots, if you’re hellbent on taking certain creams and lotions with you.
