What to Pack: The Ultimate Travel Packing Checklist
Bookmark this travel packing list because you'll want to refer to it as your trip gets closer. It'll serve as a tool to tell you what to pack, but also will help you make sure you've thought of everything else you might want to pack.
Step 1: Choose Your Main Luggage
Wherever you're planning to go, pick luggage that is versatile, lightweight and big enough to hold all your essentials. The most important decision you'll make is (as far as luggage is concerned) is buying a bag that has an awesome warranty. Traveling with a piece of luggage with broken wheel, handle or zipper is the absolute worst!
Step 2: Organize Your Stuff
If you have lots of different types of activities you plan to do, that means you have a fair amount of gear you need to pack into your suitcase. Keeping everything organized can be a challenge. One of the best things you can do when you're packing for any trip, especially one that requires you to pack lots of layers, is to make sure you use packing organizers.
Keeping your suitcase organized with packing organizers means not only will you know exactly where everything is, but your clothing can be arranged and compressed so you can fit more in your bag.
Step 3: Pack Your Toiletry Bag
If you're carrying on, keep your toiletry bag light and TSA-compliant. The TSA 3-1-1 rule makes it easy to remember: liquids, gels, aerosols, creams, and pastes must be 3.4 ounces (100ml) or less per container and they must be in a 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag.
