Travel check lists and
This hand check list and travel tips guide will help you plan your trip without forgetting a thing.
The packing lists below are designed for your peace of mind – so you can leave on your trip well prepared.
Airline ticket or E-ticket
Reservation numbers: hotel and car rental
Money: both local and foreign currency
Tip: Call your bank and let them know exactly where you’re travelling to and the dates you’ll be gone to avoid having your credit/debit card declined.
Tip: Always save any samples you pick up at stores to take with you or buy travel size bottles and fill them with your favourite products. And to avoid unwanted leaks, place liquids in re-sealable plastic bags.
Shirts: casual and dressy
Shoes: comfortable and dressy
Accessories: Scarves, hats, and jewellery.
Tip: It’s always a good idea to pack a light sweater or a shawl for cool nights.
To keep clothes from creasing, roll instead of folding them and place tissue paper between your delicates.
iPod or CD player
Camera (film, if needed)
Recharging equipment for electrical equipment, i.e. mobile, camera
Tip: Electrical appliances in the US work at 110 volts – while most countries in the world use 220 – 240 volts. Always have an adapter or converter handy.
Nail clippers and/or nail file
Any prescription medicine you’re taking
Extra locks – in case you lose any
On the day of travel
Make sure all electrical appliances are not switched on or plugged in.
Throw away any perishable goods you have in the fridge.
Lock all windows and doors.
Turn water heater and heating down to lowest setting or change timer to once a day.
Leave shades down and drapes closed.
Park your car either in a garage or buy a special steering wheel lock for maximum security.
Secure all your pieces of luggage with a small lock and put keys in a safe place. If you’re worried about losing your keys buy a lock with a code number instead.
Double-check that you have all your travel documents: passport, visa and tickets.
Don’t forget to take these items in your hand luggage: paracetamol, bottled water, a book, lip balm, lotion and anything else you’d need on the flight.
Have a great holiday!
