Have you ever been at the airport or mid-flight and realized that you forgot something important at home, such as tickets to an event or your suit jacket? Those moments of panic can be avoided by preparing for your trip effectively. To have a stress-free travel experience this holiday season, follow these 3 tips:
1. Plan ahead for what you will pack
Create a packing checklist of everything you will need for the trip a couple of days before your trip so that you can add to it as you remember certain items. Then when it is time to pack, you can check items off of your list when you have put them in your suitcase. When you write everything down you have less of a chance of forgetting something.
2. Bring chargers in your carry on
Ensure you have your chargers with you in your carry on bag just in case you get stuck in the airport for an extended period of time due to a delay – you wouldn’t want to be without your computer or phone when you are stuck for an extra 3 hours at the gate!
3. Pack emergency clothes
Most people have experienced their bag getting lost by the airport at some point in their lives. Avoid being stuck wearing the same clothes for multiple days on your holiday vacation by bringing a set of fresh clothes with you in your carry on. This is especially important if you want to wear comfortable clothes to the airport but have a dinner or event with a dress code that you are planning on attending.
