When we plan trips, we overthink everything. I know I do. I also waste too much time on making lists after lists on what to pack. Here is a simple must-have list to save you time and help you prepare for your travels.
First things first, choose your bag wisely, keep in mind the size restrictions that apply to cabin bags. 48 cm – height, 34 cm- width and 23 cm – depth is the standard, but please check with the airline you are flying with.
Always put a name tag on your cabin bag. Name tags are essential.
A must-have for every trip:
Passport and Boarding Pass
Flight tickets and itinerary
Confirmation of your airport pick up and hotel
Print out of E Visa (if visa is required)
Cash / Travelcard
Mobile Phone and Charger
If your flight is longer then 5 hours, I would suggest packing toiletries.
Toothbrush and mini toothpaste
Mini First Aid Kit – with panadol and bandaid.
(Remember there is a limitation of how much liquid you can take on the airplane, usually 3.4-ounce bottle but please check with the airline you are flying). Pack these in a ziplock bag to avoid spilling.
If your flight is longer then 12 hours, I would suggest also packing
Kindle instead of a book to keep the weight down. I personally love actual books, but it just adds so much weight to my carry on.
