Checklist Tips

Holiday Checklist For Couples

The following packing tip will come in handy on your couple’s trip

  • Toiletries that are travel-sized are expensive. Instead, use refillable travel bottles; this way, you save money.
  • When traveling long distances, purchase necessities when you get there rather than packing them.
  • Your appliances may only function here. Sometimes, you will need a plug adapter, but make sure the voltage is appropriate for where you are going.
  • Bringing a reusable water bottle is more cost-effective and reduces plastic waste. Near the entrances of most airports are free water bottle-refilling kiosks.
  • While many airlines offer blankets, it’s also a good idea to pack a scarf in your luggage.
  • Shoes contribute significantly to weight and bulk. Seek comfortable and well-suited shoes. Something you can dress up or down is ideal.
