The 10 Most-Forgotten Vacation Items (And How To Remember Them)
Here is a familiar scenario…..You arrive at your fabulous hotel and start unpacking your things, only to realize that you managed to bring 12 pairs of shoes, nine dresses and seven bathing suits, but your passport or medicine didn’t make it into your suitcase. We’ve all been there – here are some of the most commonly-forgotten items….
Check out our most popular vacations that include both Australia & New Zealand!
Your phone charger
No one has ever regretted not taking their phone charger. Why not put a reminder into your phone to pack your charger? That’ll reduce the chances of it winding up plugged into the wall at home while you’re trekking through a foreign city.
Toothbrush, that is an easy one to remember, but without toothpaste, you won’t get far so don’t forget to include it in your toiletries bag. While you’re at it, grab the dental floss too.
Your fancy digital SLR camera takes amazing vacation photos, but only when it’s got a full battery and lots of memory. Don’t leave home without your camera charger and extra memory cards.
You may not think you’ll need your bathing suit when you’re visiting Edmonton or Halifax in February, but don’t be the only person in your group who has to miss out on the super-awesome hot tub party. Always be prepared for a swim.
Whether you’re working out at the gym or enjoying the amenities of the hotel, a small travel lock usually comes in handy if only for the peace of mind it gives you against pickpockets.
First aid items
You’ll never realize how important it is to always have bandages until you need one. A small first aid kit will provide a wealth of items that will always come in handy, if only for blisters.
A brush or comb
You remembered your curling iron, blow-dryer, hair straightener, and assortment of essential hair products, but — surprise! — you forgot the one thing……. your brush.
Whether you’re travelling somewhere exotic or just heading to the next province over, snacks are always a good thing to have handy. You can’t always just raid the fridge when your stomach growls at 2 a.m. Bring Nuts, granola bars and other healthy, non-perishable items that won’t go to waste.
You might think “No need for a sweater! I’m going to a warm place in June — it’ll be scorching! Tank tops and flip flops.” Think again — even warm climates can get chilly at night. Don’t be the kind of person who has to consider wearing a hotel blanket to dinner.
Underwear…. People often don’t even realize they’ve forgotten it until it’s too late. Don’t be that person who has to rush to the nearest department store — make sure your best underthings are the first thing you put in your suitcase.
A laundry bag is an item that is often underestimated. How are you supposed to separate your dirty underwear from your clean underwear? A stain remover pen comes in handy too. You’ll thank us later.
