Know before you go: Packing Tips

Be Smart when packing.

Traveling light doesn’t mean that you won’t be bringing the essential items which will keep you survive and look presentable while in other places. Especially in luxury traveling, we tend to bring just one pretty small suitcase with sunglasses on.

But keep in mind that to be presentable is too be ‘present-able’! Meaning you are able to present yourself gorgeously!

You’re out there not just for Business purposes, but also to savour the sightings and take selfies! Let’s not forget being a classy traveller.

 

Here are the top travel packing tips to help you create the best travel moments everywhere you go!

What and how to pack? Top items on the list!

 

Portable USB charger / Power Bank!

Guys and Gals, it is 2018! Everyone needs to charge something right?

Our life is recorded on our phone and traveling would be best with HD Cams. Smart phones and Laptops/netbooks is the place where you would store all of your essential info, like maps, directions to hotels, flight info, etc.

It is where your trusted assistant can be found: Google assistant, Siri, Cortana and name all the voice bots!

That means you need it all the time, and we know you really hate to rush looking for outlets in airports or transport spots, especially with different converters. (Luxury Traveling with Newport Jets on the other hand will never make you do this though)

Invest in a few small portable USB chargers and batteries. They’ve been a lifesaver for years!

 

Zip locks!

 

Be organized! It is a big thing in travelling. Everyone, for business or not, really needs to travel somewhere. Travel packing cubes are the ultimate luggage organizers!

You don’t need to bring your bottles of supplements and vitamins and have bottle bulk problem on the way. Use small Ziploc bags!

You got liquid items? It’s no problemo! If one of the liquid bottles spills or gets damaged, putting or organizing your things inside Ziplocs won’t get the spilled liquid all over your entire wardrobe!

 

Travel Security

Look out for pickpockets. Especially when traveling alone. The most convenient way to protect your valuables especially your cash/cards is to keep them hidden and close to you. You can hide your valuables with a money belt or wallet that can be hung on your neck and hidden in your shirts, panties or bras.

Travel Documents, Cash, and Credit Cards are the MOST important things to carry, so be sure to keep them very close to you like your entire travel life depends on it. And of course pray to keep the snatchers our while you are sleeping.

Here are the checklists of travel security items to help you!

  • Passport/visa(s)
  • Personal ID and government issued ID  – it would be best  to bring at least 2 valid IDs when traveling
  • Cash and credit card(s) – make sure to inform your bank about your trip. Most credit card companies will freeze your credit cards if they noticed an unusual transaction. While money changers are commonly found in most airports, it would be best to bring denominations of the country you will be visiting especially when your arrival falls at night. When Traveling to a remote island, make sure to research if ATM machines are available in the place.
  • Health insurance cards/document(s)
  • Travel insurance info
  • Reservations and itineraries – as mentioned above your itinerary must be detailed and must be kept handy.
  • Hotel and/or tour contact information
  • Transportation tickets (plane, train, bus, car, etc.) – store your e-tickets in your smart phones and tablets. Have a hard coy as well just in case something happens to your gadgets. Scan the important documents and email it to yourself so to be extra secured and so you can still retrieve all important documents online.
  • Emergency contacts and important addresses

The list came from this awesome blog, Thanks! We don’t need to research further.

 

First Aid

Of course, you don’t want to be infected after a tick, mosquito and bug bite. Also, small accidents happen most often: a slash of nipper, head bump or nail scratch is not impossible. So if you want to travel light, be sure to travel with these first aid check list:

  • Paracetamol and if you are travelling with children include the children’s version as well
  • Antiseptic Cream
  • Anti-bug bite spray
  • Band-aids
  • Prescription Medications – If you take quite a few prescriptions you may like to use a travel pill box that offers a cover and sleeve to place copies of your prescription
  • Vitamins you regularly take – don’t suddenly stop taking them as it may upset your physical well-being
  • Lip balm or petroleum jelly – chapped lips are horrible and inevitable. Be sure to carry them wherever you are. Most recommended for gentlemen. Yes, seriously guys.

 

Foodies


Bring things that makes you comfortable, and food is on the top list! Count in the chocolates, snack bars and detoxifying juices. Travel with lovely cookies is fun!

Music to help you sleep

Music lovers can relate very much, but to those who are not, well you still need them. Just in case you will be staying with loud snorers. Country music sound much better than Shrek’s growl right?

 

Books

Weight is a big thing in travelling. So when you travel, you might consider downloading an e-book app to suffice your eyes while in airport waiting for your plane. If you prefer a traditional book paper to avoid radiation, how about an anti-radiation eyeglasses. Believe me, you would be thankful for the extra space you free up.

With Newport Jets, you will definitely experience the most luxurious reading time ever in your life.

 Here are the random yet very important travel packing tips from travel experts!

  • Duct Tape. You’ll find a million and one uses for it.

  • Hypoallergenic pillow case. The one that zips to cover gross pillows, which often contain dust mites. Pack a sleep sheet as well.
  • Earplugs is common for travellers, so why to forget them?
  • Pack a couple single-use detergent packs. If you’re on a trip that’s less than a month long and plan to hand wash clothes. For longer travels, buy detergent as you go – but pack a few to get started.
  • Don’t forget to leave space in your luggage if you’re the type that loves to shop and bring back souvenirs!
