These are some packing tips that may sometimes get overlooked:
1. Carry on
Decide if you are going to take all of your luggage with you on the plane or not. If you are not remember that liquids need to be kept in a separate bag.
You may need something for a headache, allergies or sleeping pills. When traveling to different places you never know how your body will react.
It is a good idea to pack an umbrella on the outside of your luggage. This way whatever climate that you arrive you will be dry. You never know what type of weather situation you will get yourself into. The (airport worker) will even think you are smarter for doing this).
4. Extra travel bag with all amenities
If you travel a lot it is a good idea to create a travel bag. This is a bag that you do not unpack, that has all your travel needs in it. This can include shampoo, conditioner, soap, tooth brush and toothpaste, brush, floss ect.
5. Pack in a plastic
Before flight or layovers your luggage may be on the run way for a long time.During this time it may be uncovered during the rain. This may cause your items to, you guessed it, be all wet when you receive it. A good idea is to pack your luggage in a trash bag in the bad. This will keep your clothes dry for when you get to your destination.
6. Exact change envelope
Keep exact change in an envelope so you will not spend it. Then if there are any tolls which need exact change you will be ready.
7. Winter Jacket
Remember not to pack your winter jacket if you are going to a cold place in case your luggage gets lost.
