Want to go to the Sahara desert but forgot to bring a hat? Want to go boating but forgot to bring paddles? You can avoid this kind of unnecessary embarrassment by following the pre-prepared baggage tips prepared by momondo.
After the flight and the hotel were booked, packing the baggage became the last important thing before departure. This is indeed quite a tedious thing, but as long as you follow our expert packaging tips, you don't have to worry about it.
1. List a list
Ok, it sounds a bit boring, but when you have a simple list, you can go on vacation without any pressure. Separate what you have to bring with what you like. To be realistic, remember that luggage has a limited capacity. If you feel clueless, start with the following tips:
2. Don't forget the emergency medicine box
We didn't ask you to prepare the medicine for the entire emergency room. Just a small bag and put on the most necessary emergency medicine. Theres no one wants to have a headache due to excessive exhaustion, a fever due to acclimatization, or abdominal pain caused by poor mood. If all three situations are caught, it will be even worse. If you are sick at home, it is not a problem, because you can easily go to see a doctor or buy medicine at any time, but if you are in a foreign country, you may need to prescribe a prescription to take medicine, especially allergic drugs and asthma drugs. So just be sure to bring them with you!
3. Less liquid
We all know this, but sometimes it is inevitable that we will make mistakes in our busy lives, or when we pass the airport, we will be lucky enough to bring a bottle of drink in the past, but the result is delayed. The frustrating thing is that airports in Europe require that the liquids carried in the baggage should not exceed 100 ml (each) and must be placed in a sealable transparent pouch (available at airports, for a nominal fee). If you have a liquid capacity that exceeds the limit, remember to put them in your baggage.
4. Name cards that help you identify yourself
Unless you are an internationally renowned mysterious person, you don't have to worry about your identity being exposed. Most luggage has a fixed-size place to place brand names. Remember to use them to prevent your baggage from being lost. You can use it to identify you.
5. Pay attention to baggage allowance
If the airline you are travelling on requires no more than 23 kilograms of luggage, then they are definitely not talking about playing! It is best to weigh the baggage before going to the airport to make sure it is within the prescribed limits. Otherwise you will be forced to pay for the extra baggage weight at the airport, or you may say goodbye to the cute wool vest that the old grandmother has painstakingly woven for you. We will desperately press and press the already filled boxes, and we want to put in a few more trousers, but the rules are after all, and this is for your safety. This also reminds us...
6. Leave space for shopping in the box
Whether it's buying duty-free items or holiday souvenirs, you're sure to come back with a box heavier than when you went. Leave some extra space in the box!
7. Take as few shoes as possible
This is the most occupied and troublesome thing in the luggage. How long your holiday is, decide how many pairs of shoes you should bring. Momondo suggests that if you go out for a week or two, it is reasonable to bring three pairs of shoes. Use is more important than quantity. If you are going hiking, don't bring your stiletto heels. Wear the most comfortable shoes and put the socks in other shoes, which will save more luggage space.
8. Try to take care of skin care products as little as possible
Unless you are going to an island in the middle of the desert, no matter where you go to the world, you should be able to buy shampoo and sunscreen easily. Take less skin care products, so you can try to avoid opening the box when you arrive at the destination, but find that the slimy cosmetics inside are everywhere. If you really can't do without the special skin care brand that you usually use, you just need to bring enough amount to use on the road. You can throw away the bottle after you have finished using it, and you can leave more room for luggage when you go home.
9. Roll up the clothes and put them on
Maybe not everyone agrees with this, but we think that it is the only option to roll up the clothes, which not only reduces the wrinkles on the clothes, but also saves more luggage space.
10. Carrying valuables with you
Although airlines have rarely lost their luggage today, why do they take that risk? Put all your valuables things in your carry-on bag - including the camera and diamond engagement ring.
11. Don't forget to bring the power adapter
In order to avoid spending a lot of money at the airport before starting, it is better to put one in the bag beforehand, if you will use this stuff.
12. Carry practical clothing instead of exotic clothes
You may want to take an eye-catching outfit to travel, but is it really necessary to think about it? This problem usually plagues you when you pack it: Do you want to wear a look that looks exaggerated? We recommend that you bring some classic evening dresses and versatile clothes, and leave those fancy clothes at home!
13. Be careful about fragile products
If you have to bring some fragile porcelain or glassware, wrap them in foam or in the middle of the clothes, the safest place in the luggage, so that you won't find a pile in the box when you arrive. Fragmented.
14. Classify clothes
This means putting shirts and shirts, pants and pants together so that they can be easily found when you need them.
15. Put a small closet in the handbag
This is of course not to say that you really want to put a closet, but it is a good idea to put a set of clean underwear and pajamas in your handbag. If your luggage is accidentally lost at the airport, they can be sent. It’s time to use.
16. Don't predict the weather yourself - or look at the weather forecast!
Depending on where you are going, the weather forecast is sometimes the best friend of the holiday, sometimes the biggest enemy. Whether it is raining or sunny, meteorologists will tell you what kind of weather is waiting for you where you will go. It is best to look at the weather forecast for the destination before departure, and then it is easy to decide whether to bring the winter clothes or the umbrella!
17. Don't bring a nail clipper on the plane
Friendly Tip: If you want to put a nail clipper, scissors, or any tool with sharp protrusions in the box, momondo advises you to dispel this idea! These are all illegal items at the airport, and the staff will ask you to throw them away!
18. Put the most important things on top
If you feel that something is going to be used soon (such as a jacket), please remember to put it on top of the luggage. This seems to be a matter of course, no reminders, but it may be because you are more likely to forget.
19. Is there a bath towel?
This is another thing that makes you a headache. You can't figure out what you shouldn't bring. In advance it is best to ask if the hotel you booked provides bath towels before deciding whether to bring them.
20. Undressing check at security check
The airport security staff will not ask you to take off your underwear, but you will most likely need to take off your coat, shoes or untie the belt, remove the jewelry or remove the metal. If you are traveling with a laptop or tablet, remember to take the initiative to check with the security personnel!
21. Checking necessities before leaving home
This last tip is also the most important thing. It is necessary to check all the necessities before leaving home: cash, valid passport, toothbrush (in case you have a travel companion). Keep these at hand so you don't forget to bring the most important things. Ok, now you can enjoy your vacation!
I wish you a pleasant journey!
