Your Holiday Packing Tips

May 25, 2008
In all the excitement of looking forward to your major holiday how is your packing going? When going overseas it is wise to pack accordingly. Essential travel items can easily be overlooked, it pays to plan and to have a list. That way you can tick off items as they are packed.

Once you have your list then add the following. The three essentials are, Toiletries, travel documents and First Aid.

The point is by taking care of the basics now and taking them with you can save you precious time while you travel. Who wants to spend a day searching for a pharmacy or explaining symptoms to someone that does not speak the language?

First Aid kits are now being produced to cover any type of travel. They come in neat compact kits for all budgets. They are useful to keep at home or in the car.Whatever type of travel you are doing there will be a kit to suit or you can put your own together.

Your basic kit should include the following: Pain relief medication, antiseptic cream, band aids and plasters. Stomach upset remedies and eye drops. Scissors, tweezers and safety pins are usually included. Remember to put your kit in with your main checked luggage. No good having it confiscated by customs before you leave the country!

Don't forget to pack your razor. After this you need tissues, toothpicks or floss, insect repellent and sun cream should be considered.If the climate is cold or dry pack good lip balm and body lotion. To save the annoyance of broken nails always pack and emery board or two. Medicated wipes can be very handy for a quick clean up or hand wash where not water is available.

Getting a prescription filled in a foreign country is not advised. Take enough of your medication to last for the duration of your trip and then some. Talk to your doctor first.

If traveling alone try to have emergency contact information on you at all times. Copies of your passport, travel ordinary and travel insurance documents should travel with you. Carry these document separate from the originals.

By taking the time to add a few extra items you can save yourself unnecessary worry. This small amount of extra planning is priceless. Bon Voyage!
