5 Smart Travel Packing Tips

Packing is an art and creativity, you need to pack everything you need for a trip in a way that meets the demands of baggage weight and size requirements – now that's a creativity, and we've got the formula.

For travelling choose light and airy fabric that dry easily and keep you comfortable. Here will provide you with some easy packing tips as per hot and cold climates and plan to layer your clothing as needed:

Tips No. 1:  First thing's first: don't get a bag that's too big

While it may seem tempting to buy a large one and fill it with things you 'might' need, don't forget you'll spend a lot of time carrying your backpack around. So the lighter it is, the better for you.

Tips No.2: Roll your clothes

Rolling your clothes is one of the best-known suitcase packing tips and for good reason. Rolling clothes conserves space, reduces wrinkling and makes it easier to find clothes in your suitcase.

Tips No. 3: You can always layer your clothing in mid-season locations which is another reason why it’s a good idea to make sure each item can mix and match with the rest. Add Leggings and long sleeves top undershorts and dress.

Why Leggings so Important:

Whenever I travel, leggings are a must. They're the perfect travel-day outfit, especially when paired with a baggy sweater or long shirt, for a chic but comfortable look. There's so much to love about a good pair of travel leggings. They're slimming, they stretch, and they don't take up tons of room in your suitcase. Plus, should you feel the need to utilize the hotel gym or join a pop-up yoga class, you'll be ready for a workout.

Travel Leggings to Pick up Before Your Next Trip:

There are lots of different leggings styles to suit every kind of traveller in every situation, but here are our stand-out favourite travel leggings

Tips No.4: Get a waterproof bag cover

Chances are you'll meet all kinds of weather on the road, so a waterproof cover will help to keep your backpack and its contents in tip-top condition.

Tips No. 5: Keep your important things with you.

Bags can get lost – it's an unfortunate fact of life that we just have to accept if we want to travel. So just in case, make sure anything important/special to you gets packed in your hand luggage, just in case.

So many travellers opt to overpack in lieu of forgetting something essential. My advice? Every time you take a trip, make a list! Create an inventory of everything you'll need for your upcoming vacation, and tick off the items as you place them in your bag; it's a fool-proof way to pack.
