Holiday Packing List – 5 Essential Items to Carry on your Vacation

5 Essential Things to Carry on a Holiday

Travelling generally invokes feelings of excitement for most, however, in the enthusiasm, many forget to keep small but important items while packing. We list down a few things which a traveller must carry to ensure a convenient trip.

Holiday Essentials – Duct Tape and Safety Pins

Did you ever face the embarrassing experience of getting your clothes/jacket torn from a sleeve or anywhere else or a button missing from your shirt? If yes, then you will recognise the importance of a safety pin as an appropriate solution. A transparent duct tape can help you momentarily fix the broken heel of a shoe or a pair of broken sunglasses.

Lightweight Scarf/Stole

Keeping a lightweight scarf or a stole is always advisable for a female traveller as it not only looks fashionable but can also be used for several other purposes like protection from the sun, something to cover your arms, cover your head etc.

Roaming Solution – Travel Packing Checklist

While travelling overseas, keeping in touch with family or friends back home is essential. Therefore, it is recommended that you take a suitable roaming solution to make sure that you keep in touch with your contacts and don’t miss out on any important news. These days several low-cost international roaming app, like Ajura, have helped travellers in reducing their mobile roaming expenses.

Prescription Medication

Sometimes while being busy in packing your suitcase, you forget to carry important medicines while other times you may forget to carry prescriptions, for drugs sold only on showing the same. During such times, it is a hassle to buy medicines in a new place or go to a doctor for a prescription. Therefore, it is advised while packing, to first pack medicines before anything else.

Reading Glasses/Contact Lenses and its Solution

If you have ever tried to read the letters from an eye chart, you will understand how much you will have to struggle if you forget your glasses/contacts back home. Since glasses/contact lenses are prescription based and expensive, ordering a new pair while you are on a vacation, is neither a suitable nor a practical option. Therefore, be careful to carry your eye aid while packing your things.

Now that you have identified the most important items to pack for your journey, keep them in your suitcase and enjoy your trip without any worries. Happy Journey!
