Your Ultimate Travel Packing List

Every time I pack for a trip, I run a mental checklist to make sure I haven’t forgotten anything, but I think we can all agree that relying on our brains just hours before a flight isn’t the smartest idea.

Extra Tips

  • Before you leave for your trip, mentally act out your day to double check that you’re not missing anything crucial.
  • Wear your bulky items to the airport! It will save space in your suitcase for more clothes ; )
  • Roll your clothes instead of folding them. It prevents wrinkles and takes up less space.
  • Keep all your liquids in one bag to save time at the airport.

  1. Do not forget to keep all liquids below 100 ml (or the US equilivant!). There is always one item I forget to check that ends up getting tossed at the airport.Also, if you have a battery operated camera, always remember to take spare batteries!
    Thank you for sharing this list. I know personally I like having a list to cross items off once I have packed them to avoid me over packing or forgetting to pack something. xx
