You must prioritize items on the basis of their comfort and versatility and choose efficiently. PML holidays has the essentials sorted out for your next trip to help you travel at ease:
1. Clothing and shoes
It is imperative that you consider the weather and temperate of the place you are traveling to while packing clothes and shoes. Make sure to carry warm layers if traveling to a colder climate. Also, if you plan to indulge in adventure activities, consider the same while packing your gear. So, in case you would be hiking or trekking you need to carry your trekking shoes and jackets, in case of swimming you can consider keeping your swimwear and glasses. While packing clothing, be respectful of the culture you are visiting. Consider carrying shoes if you plan to walk a lot. The key is comfort when you pack your clothing and shoes while traveling.

3. A carry-on bag
Your carry-on bag with padded straps can be a lifesaver, so organize them carefully with the items that you might need during your flight. It is a good idea to keep things in the bag that can make you cozy, like a scarf, in case of a sightseeing or day tour. Essentials like your charger, Headphones, camera, eye mask, earplugs, lip balm, sanitizer, your travel documents, and your travel journal should be stacked in your carry-on bag at all times. Make sure to avoid any liquid items in the carry-on bags during flights.
4. Your savior: a first aid kit
Though we hope you never need it but carrying a medical kit is essential amongst all the things you should carry while traveling. Especially when you are travelling to different climates and temperatures, it is advisable to carry basic medicines for food poisoning, fever, bug bites, and other ailments. You might find it exhausting in looking for a pharmacy in a foreign land. Make it a point to keep a bag well stocked with pain killers, band-aid, etc. if possible, consult your doctor beforehand about the emergency medicines you may need while traveling.
5. Organize your Toiletry bag
Remember to carry your toiletries preferably in travel sizes as it helps in packing with ease and comfort. When in a different country or city you might find it troublesome to look for your preferred brand of shampoo or moisturizer. To avoid any such hassles, remember to pack your toothbrush, toothpaste, Hairbrush/comb, hair ties, Perfume, Shampoo and conditioner, Moisturiser and Sunscreen, Makeup essentials and remover, Face wash, Lip balm, and other Personal hygiene items.
6. Carry Laundry bags or empty pouches
It is essential that you pack a couple of tiny cotton bags or laundry bags as you would need on your way back for keeping dirty shoes and clothes. These bags also come handy to organize, if you plan to shop for souvenirs during your travel. The thicker bags would protect your stuff against any moisture and would help you in packing your luggage throughout your travel.
7. Don’t forget your Paul Merchants forex card
