You’ve booked your flight, hotel and tours, and its almost the day for that great trip you have been planning for but first, you have to pack and pack smart.
We at RDV Voyage always want our customers to have the best travel experience and we could not stress it enough how crucial packing right is for a hassle-free and enjoyable trip.
Here are our top 10 travel packing tips:
1. Use packing cubes
Suitcases usually come with only a couple of compartments but there are so many things you would like to bring along and organize. We suggest using packing cubes that will help you compartmentalize your luggage. It will also aid in helping locate items easily and you can take it out one by one when you get to your accommodation, so you won’t have to dig into your luggage each time you need something. Packing cubes or
suitcase organizers are easily available online these days. You can check out Amazon or lazada.com
2. Roll your clothes
When going on a trip, we always advise our travellers to check the weather and pack the right outfit. However, packing the right clothes, for cold weather can prove to be a challenge as it eats up a lot of luggage space. We suggest rolling up clothes as it helps save space and prevents wrinkling.
3. String your necklace through a straw
This advice is relevant for those who love to accessorize.
We love to and it has always annoyed us to find out each time that our necklaces end up being tangled so badly and we don’t have the time to sit around and untangle it while on a trip. However, fret no more as we have the ultimate hack for this: put one side of your necklace through a good old straw and once it’s in, lock it with the other side. For the love of Mother Earth, we also suggest using a paper straw!
4. Put your earrings within the holes in a button
Another accessory hack as these little items could always test you out- when they go missing. For your earrings, make sure the pair is always together by locking them into buttons. Find some extra buttons at home and lock those pairs in so you’ll never have to go with a missing pair or worse-without.
5. Pack your favorite scarf
You might be surprised how air conditioning is always on full blast in tropical places, or be taken aback by sudden temperature changes in temperate climate so so don’t forget to pack your scarf. Think of it as your lightweight security blanket. We promise you won’t regret it.
6. Store headphone in an old mint
Keep your headphones untangled by storing it in an old mint container. You can even decorate it to make it more you!
7. Place plastic wrap under bottle caps
To avoid dealing with liquids leaking in your luggage, place a plastic before sealing it with the cap. Make sure you tighten it well!
8. Place a book together with a rubber band.
Love to read of your books but, terrified how you will carry in spite of causing during your visit? Stress no more! This hack will help you keep preserve the pages of your book while stored in your bag.
9. Pack your shoes with shower cap
Travel light by packing your shoes in a shower cap instead of a cloth bag/shoe bag.
10. Store liquid cosmetics in a small container or contact case
If you wear contact lenses, you probably have a few spare cases lying around so why not make them useful? Contact lens cases are small, sturdy and easy to carry. You can put face/eye cream, talc powder and a lot more! Perfect for overnight trips.
