Tired of being stuck at home and wanna go on a spontaneous solo adventure? Asked by the boss to tag along at the last moment for a business trip? Well, whatever is the cause for your last-minute travel, a packing strategy doesn’t come up off the top of one’s head. Also, the time crunch causes us to panic causing unnecessary stress. So, to make your packing experience smooth and sound, we at Superfares have come up with an exhaustive list of all the necessary tips for packing your items at the last-minute travel.
Let’s get started-
Since your travel is at the last-minute travel, your mind may go haywire into stuff you want to pack and you might end up forgetting about the stuff you actually need to pack. So, take a breath to calm yourself before starting to pack stuff. Learn about the place you are going to and make a list of stuff you need to pack accordingly. Going to a hot place? Your list must include sunscreen, shades, Hawaiian shirts, shorts, etc. Visiting a place near the arctic region? Your list must consist of thermal tops, rubber boots, hand gloves, etc.
If you are traveling to a foreign land, you must pack all the important documents (passports, VISA, reservations) and important information (hotel name, contact number of a travel agent) in an easy-to-find place (handbag). Just for reassurance, mail yourself a soft copy of all the paperwork or take a screenshot from your mobile and save it on your cloud in case you lose any hard copies.
Whenever going out for a last-minute trip, you must carry the 3 bags mentioned below to be prepared for the perils of the trip. First, a foldable bag for all the souvenirs that you might buy during your trip. Second, one laundry bag for keeping your used clothes separately from your clean ones. Last, you must carry a separate bag for your electronic items that you would carry along with you and make sure that it is water-resistant to keep your gadgets safe.
While looking for which clothes to pack, don’t spiral down thinking about what stuff to pack for your trip and end up in analysis paralysis. Just be neutral and think about what specific type of clothes you would require during the trip. For instance, if you need to attend an office meeting or go on an adventure trail with your friends, just close your eyes and imagine yourself there. You will get an idea about the dress and accessories you would require by visualization.
While there is no dearth of YouTube tutorials in helping you with packing up different stuff inside the bags, it is often seen that people still make the rookie mistake of putting in heavy stuff at the bottom layer of the bag. So firstly, you must roll your clothes and pack them first, followed by leaky items in the plastic bags, then the heavy stuff, and on top of all, the fragile items.
As we all have suffered from the mishappening of staining our white or light-colored clothes, you might want to avoid taking such lots. You can rather use darks as they are durable across space and time. Also, black/dark-colored pants can be used to match different outfits. Similarly, with shoes, try to find a pair that matches a wider variety of your outfits.
Since the onset of the app revolution, your Smartphone is not just smart anymore, it is a Saber. By installing Apps such as WIFI Finder, Weather channel, Yelp, Airbnb, you can find the public internet connection near your location. The app will also let you check the weather of the surrounding area, find out great places to eat in a foreign country, and book a room for your stay. This way, you can know the locals of the country better and get an authentic experience of the culture of a foreign land.
Just as the stories of J.R.R. Tolkien are incomplete without the small, brave, and yet handy Hobbits. I define hobbits as the small things that have a lot of impact on your travel experience. You need to pick up a few of your own Hobbits to make your trip smooth. Some of the items you must include but are not limited to are portable iron, a lightweight water repellent blanket, do everything moisturizer, multipurpose travel adaptor, luggage strap, phone chargers, and so on.
Each country has a different set of rules for flight travelers. Hence, it is advisable to get a peek into the things that are not allowed by the airport authority to be carried by passengers. For US passengers, looking up the TSA website could be a great start, also they have an App named MyTSA app. So basically, just look at the simple do’s and don’ts mentioned by your home country’s aviation department.
Although the word essential can mean different things to different people. Generally, essentials include stuff which is indispensable for the well-being of your bodily functions such as medications, spectacles (or contact lens); basically the items which aren’t readily available at the airport or in the foreign country.
