Are you going on a last minute trip? Are you leaving at the weekend with your camper van for Orlando? Perhaps you need to get away from Covid 19 and all the news. If so, it is important to make your suitcase smart so that you have everything you need so that you are not overwhelmed by… travel burdens and expenses! We reveal some secrets about packing well and being prepared. Lately, the extra charge of luggage by low cost -and non- airlines has become a big issue for travelers who now have to limit themselves to what is necessary if they do not want to pay anything more! The parameters that you need to consider are your destination, the weather, your style, of course, but also your needs (eg if you are traveling for business, your laptop is usually necessary as well)!
Carry on light:
The small cabin trolley suitcase (carry-on) is one of the most important “investments” that every traveler must make. Make sure it is of good quality but also practical and trust some of the well-known brands. Although their cost may be a little higher, it is worth it, since you will never always be using it. Buy one made of hard material and not fabric, as its contents are better protected but check that it is also light. Even if you do not travel by plane you will find it very easy to have only a small hand luggage with you.
Don’t forget the essentials:
With your carry-ons and suitcases in order, you can now focus on the essentials. Aside from the usual key items to bring depending on your destination, traveling post-COVID still requires more caution. You don’t want to be robbed of a relaxing vacation because you got sick in transit! Better be safe than sorry! Bring your hand sanitizers along with your vaccine passports. Add disinfecting wipes to your toiletries packing list. Browse for protective masks that perfectly fit your face, snuggly covering your nose, mouth, and chin.
On a weekend getaway, a neutral color palette – black, white, gray, beige – can maximize your choices and still look good without having to cram in lots of different fashion items. Having a softer canvas you can combine the same clothes with each other in different alternatives and differentiate your style with separate accessories. You can wear a simple black dress from the morning with a fashionable pair of sneakers and a scarf and look completely different at night with the same dress combined with high sandals and striking jewelry. The secret is the “mix & match” which works in all instances. Shop around for good deals and find something that is just perfect for you. You could look at Local Offers to see what items you can buy to assist your travel.
More and more airports are being more picky with what you take on board and it is good to ensure that everything is sanitized first. To make things simpler, buy on route! You will find many things at your destination that you will not only use in your trip but you will also bring them back with you as…beautiful memories. A special handmade piece of jewellery or a delicate scarf will be a very nice souvenir from your destination, which you will wear, gaining some space in your suitcase. For example, think from the beginning if you want to spend some money on Duty Free for perfumes or cosmetics and leave your own behind, so as not to carry them in duplicate. Travelling doesn’t have to be difficult but you should make it safe and secure.
