The holidays are some of the year’s most coveted moments, so you should reduce all stress related to them. It’s important to know how to plan and organise your vacation, and how to pack your bags efficiently, without last minute “this doesn’t fit!” moments or baggage weight problems.
Here are 7 fundamental tips to enjoy a stress-free vacation – even before you start.
1 – Check the Weather
It’s not worth it to just assume about how the weather is like on your vacation’s destination. It’s important to know the exact forecast for those days, so you can plan your outfits.
2 – Make a list
So it is easier for you to organize, even before you start fitting clothes on your bags, make a list of all that’s indispensable and what’s secondary. This will help you organize your baggage even before you start, reducing stress and avoiding wasting time.
3 – Follow the limits
Forget about circumventing the airlines’ mandatory weights and dimensions, as this will only lead to worries at the check-in. Pack your bags with these limits in mind.
4 – Save space for souvenirs
We always forget to keep some extra room for souvenirs, and when we see them and can’t resist them, we find ourselves with a problem for when it’s time to return. If we save some space for them, it’s time saved and one less thing to worry about.
5 – Keep footwear to a minimum
Shoes and sneakers are fundamental, but they’re also some of the hardest things to fit in the suitcase. Instead of quantity, prefer versatility.
6 – Make sure all your valuables are in your hand baggage
This will free you from worrying about what can happen to your most valuable belongings, allowing you to relax and enjoy your flight.
7 – Take a change of clothes in your hand baggage
Be prepared for any contingencies and for the possibility that your hold baggage ends up somewhere else. With spare clothes at hand, you don’t have to wait for it in day-old clothes.
