Packing Tips To Make Travel Easier

Airline travel can be a royal pain these days; here are some packing tips to make travel easier. These tips can also help you avoid checked bag fees by just taking a carry on bag if you are going on a trip of less than 5 days.Find the right suitcase. Purchase a carry-on that will fit the bill as your only piece of luggage. Make sure it is designated as a carry-on and meets airline standards to fit in the overhead bin or under the seat in front of you.

Have a packing plan. Think about the activities you will do each day and pack accordingly. Check on current weather conditions and what is recommended, or that you need to bring for the activities you have booked. Less is more. Most of us over pack (me included), so limit yourself. A good rule of thumb is to lay out all of the clothes you want to bring, and remove 2 items.

Roll your clothes. This takes up less space in your suitcase. Consider your footwear. Wear the bulkiest shoes when you travel to save precious space in your suitcase. Pack wrinkle-free clothes to save you precious time and the hassle of having to iron on your vacation. Who wants to iron on a trip? I certainly don’t. packing tips to make travel eaiser Don’t forget to pack your must have electronics and all the charging cords you will need. Know your airline luggage rules regarding checked bag fees and carry-on items. Many airlines are selling fares that do not allow access to the overhead bins; know upfront what you are paying for. I hope my packing tips to make travel easier will help you on your future adventures.

Islands off the coast of South America are considered to be outside of the hurricane danger zone. These are the islands of Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Trinidad and Tobago. I can’t predict the weather, but these are good options if you are planning to travel from mid-August through October.
