11 essential things to pack in your travel bag

Travel Mug

A metal water bottle is hygienic and keeps you hydrated on the go. This will make sure that your thirst will not overpower the joy of your traveling.

Zip Pocket Jacket

I can’t carry handbag everywhere as it acts as an extra load for me. Here, the zip pocket jacket comes to rescue. It’s become my essential as it can accommodate my cell phone, tickets, cash etc.

Multi-purpose Shoes

Always carry a pair of shoes that’s waterproof, durable and keeps you comfortable on long walks.

Anti-bacterial Wipes

You come in contact with millions of germs while traveling. And most of the time you don’t have access to water and soap. Here, anti-bacterial wipes come to rescue and make sure minimal exposure with germs.

Customized First-Aid Kit

It’s better to pack necessary medicine than rush down in new place in case of emergency. Make sure to pack: eye drops, motion sickness relief, allergy, antidiarrheal medicine, painkiller, probiotics, or any ongoing medical treatment along with the dosage mentioned on the back of the box.

Travel wallet

It’s not safe to leave the important documents and money to leave at the hotel’s room. So travel wallet or money belt become necessary. It can carry currencies, tickets, hotel keys, etc.

Chewing Gum

Always make sure to carry chewing gum on your flight. It helps relieve pressure in your ears.

Camera

A travel trip is incomplete without beautiful pictures. Never forget to take along your DSLR on your next trip.

Noise-Canceling Headphones or earplugs

Noise-Canceling Headphones will cut off all the distraction like loud talkers, baby’s crying or jet roaring. Earplugs will block all noise as well reduce ear pain from changes in altitude.

Warm Clothes

Warm clothes like cardigan or scarf can be great to keep you comfortable on the go. You can wear a scarf in different styles.

Toiletry Bag
Pack only necessary toiletries with you. Pack jewelry that works on every dress, sunglasses, watch makeup, sunscreen, lotions, personal hygiene, lotions, deodorants, hairbrush, pins, toothpaste etc.

These are 11 essential things to pack in your travel bag. I hope that you’ll find these travel tips helpful and, you’ll want to refer on your next travel trip.

    good list – you have put together the absolute essentials! A first kit is a good idea! We tend to only carry 1-2 medicines and not a kit as such.
