Tips for Travel Packing

When planning to take a trip, the hard task is packing all the things that you really need and leaving the things that you want. To make your travel packing a whole lot easier, here are a few helpful tips that should help you:

Fold Clothes Together

Put two or more pieces of clothes together, for example two shirts, lay one down flat then place the other on top of the shirt at the bottom. Then fold the two shirts together as you would when folding one. This method helps to give each shirt cushion where you folded it so as to decrease the likelihood of wrinkles and creases appearing.

Roll Your Clothes

Travelers tend to guarantee this method as it works well with pants, skirts and shirts. To roll your clothes lay them i face down on a flat surface, put the sleeves to the back and then roll the clothes from the bottom up. When rolling pants or skirts fold them in half then roll from either end.

Tissue Paper

When traveling with delicate items you can use tissue paper to wrap them in. Place the item face down and place tissue on top. Wrap it up inside the tissue paper. Use additional layers of tissue paper so as to ensure that the item is completely covered all around, you can then wrap the item in a piece of thick clothing so as to prevent any form of damage.

Other tips

  • Do not pack books and other documents on top of each other; instead, lay them out all over your bag.
  • Keep all medications and important papers in your carry-on bag.
  • In order to ensure that the things in your bags remain clean and free from odor put all shoe ( if they are not clean) inside old socks or in sealed plastic bags (ziplock).
  • When traveling with valuables it is best to split up your bank cards, travellers’ cheques, cash and credit cards as much as possible in different pockets, in your bags and wallet when packing. This is very helpful in the event that you do get robbed.

With these simple tips your travel packing should be much easier.
