The guys over at Panoramic Villas came up with 50 holiday packing tips for your next adventure – we decided to pick out our top 10 from this list for you.

Read on to discover a bunch of helpful packing tips for your next adventure!

Travel List For Holidays

1.)  Make A Packing Checklist

Making a checklist will ensure you don’t forget anything – no matter how small. This may be an obvious one but it should be one of the first things to do before starting your holiday packing.

2.) Pack 2 Days In Advance

Leaving your packing until the last minute is the worst thing you can do. As part of your travel checklist, write a diary note to at least start the packing process two days in advance.

3.)  Beware Of Luggage Restrictions

Make sure you contact the airline or check their website for baggage restrictions to avoid any nasty surprises at the airport!

4.)  Buy A Lightweight Suitcase

Size and weight are most important when suitcase shopping. Buying a suitcase which has metal protection is good for durability; however it will impact on your luggage allowance.

5.)   Heavy Items Go First

Avoid damaging delicate or fragile items by packing the heaviest items (not including your towel) at the bottom of your suitcase. These types of items might be  …

6.)  Carry Valuables In Hand Luggage

Luggage theft does still happen so it’s best to take precautions where possible. Packing your valuables (money, phone, keys, wallet) in your hand luggage rather than in your hold luggage means you’ll know where they are at all times.

7.)  Roll Clothes – Don’t Fold Them

Not only does rolling your clothes (instead of folding them) save case space but it also prevents them from getting creased as well.

8.)  Wrap Shoes To Avoid Stains

Dirty shoes can be an issue when travelling both to and from your destination. Avoid any unwanted stains by using a disposable shower cap to cover your  shoes. Plastic bags do the trick too!

We also wrap all our sunscreen and other lotions in ziplock bags, just in case of a spill! 🙂

9.) Invest In Case Locks

Keeping your luggage protected is one of the most important things when travelling. Case locks with a combination code are best, as long as you remember to make note of it or choose something you won’t easily forget.

10.)  Don’t Forget The Adapters

Different countries have their own standard plug type, and although some plug types are interchangeable for several countries – double check! You might be able to grab one at the airport, however it’s never guaranteed and it will likely eat in to your spending money quite a bit.

BONUS TIP: REMOVE PETS FROM YOUR SUITCASE!

That’s right – pets do like to come and sit in an empty suitcase to claim their territory or to simply remind you to pack them too.  Yes they might look cute and they might just fit perfectly, however they will take up quite a bit of your weight allowance! 🙂
