Complete Packing List for Traveling
Traveling overseas without your wallet? Forgot to take your boarding pass with you to the airport? Left your favorite pair of shoes at home? All these kinds of mistakes have probably been made before, even though they can be prevented very easily. You don’t want to forget anything on your trip either, do you? After reading this blog you won’t worry about forgetting anything at all as I will provide you with a complete packing list for your journey!
It can be hard to have a good overview of the items you need to bring on a trip. There is so much stuff you have to think about. But where do you even start? That’s exactly what I will help you with by means of our travel packing list!
Step 1: primary luggage
In this blog the luggage is spread over checked and carry-on luggage. If you only want to take carry-on luggage with you, you should hold into account that some of the items in this list are restricted to checked luggage at airports. In that case you will not be able to take every item with you that is in our list.
Step 2: clothes
Once you have selected your primary luggage, you can go over all the items you want to bring with you on your travels. Let’s start with the packing list for clothing:
|Long-sleeved shirts||Shorts||Casual shoes||Sewing kit|
Step 3: toiletries
Think about whether you want to pack your toiletry bag in your checked luggage or carry-on luggage. There are strict rules regarding liquid substances in your carry-on luggage. Here is the packing list for your toiletries:
|Toothbrush||Shampoo||Hand sanitizer||Contact solution|
|Dental floss||Hairspray||Sunlotion||Birth control|
|Mouthwash||Hair gel||Makeup||Feminine hygiene|
|Hair brush/comb||Beard oil||Face wash||Vitamin pills|

|Hair styling appl.||Razors||Moisturizer/lotion||First aid kit|
|Small mirror||Scissors||Lip balm||Painkillers|
Step 4: carry-on luggage
Now it’s time to pack your carry-on bag. As I mentioned before, as carry-on luggage you can use a backpack, business bag or any other bag that is small enough to be accepted. Read our blog about recommended dimensions for cabin luggage if you are not sure what the regulations are. For your carry-on bag you can use the following packing list:
|Mobile phone||Travel pillow||Passport/ID/visa||Guidebooks|
|Laptop||Earplugs||Student card||Lip balm|
|Headphones/earbuds||Chewing gum||Credit/bank cards||Reservation info|

Let’s sum it up
By using this packing list you will have everything you will need on your trip. Make sure you carefully go over every item, and make arrangements for your home if you are leaving for a long period of time.
