Make a Plan and Stick to It

A packing list eliminates the panic of last-second packing, serves as a handy guide for repacking at the end of the trip, and can be beneficial in the unfortunate event of lost or stolen luggage.  Make sure to include the little stuff we tend to forget, such as medicines, cords, gadgets, or small umbrellas.

Protect Your Important Documents

Don't forget the most essential documents or your passports, visas, credit cards, prescriptions.  Be sure to pack your important travel documents (passports and other required documents) in a safe and dry location and store them in your hotel safe upon arrival!
