Make a packing list

Writing down the items you need to pack will help you organize your travel essentials, from travel documents and gadgets to toiletries and clothing. You can go old school and write it down on a notepad or jot it on your phone with a note-taking app or a special travel app.

Understand baggage allowance rules

Research on your airline’s baggage allowance so you can avoid unnecessary fees at the airport. Carriers have different baggage rules and size and weight allowance, so it’s best to double check with your preferred airline’s website.

Another way to skip surprise luggage fees is by investing in a proper luggage scale. Weighing your bags before you go will leave you more time to take out some items if your suitcase happens to be past your airline’s luggage weight limit.

Protect your luggage

A good, sturdy luggage is an investment that should stand the test of time. Nowadays you can protect it from scratches and tumbles by buying an important piece of travel accessory: the luggage cover. It’s also a two-in-one punch: not only will it protect your luggage, it will also give it more personality! Your suitcase will be standing out from a sea of standard-looking ones on the luggage carousel.

Pack efficiently

Avoid bringing huge toiletries with you so you can save on luggage space. An efficient way to do this is by decanting your liquids such as shampoo or moisturizer to a smaller container. You can also put cling wrap under the lid of the container to prevent the liquids from spilling.

For clothing, remember to roll the items to keep them compact and wrinkle-free. You can also invest in a couple of packing cubes so you can compartmentalize the contents of your luggage. Make sure you put heavy items such as shoes or denim jeans close to the wheels of your suitcase while the lighter ones should be at the top section of your suitcase.
