What To Take On Your Next Weekend Away



Packing clothing for a weekend away is obvious, but there are many other essentials you could easily forget when prepping your luggage for a trip. Unfortunately, doing so could potentially ruin your break-away or grind it to a complete halt.

If you want to make sure you are 100% ready for a break with your partner, family or friends, here are some tips on what to take on your next weekend away.

Flight Essentials

If you are heading off on a mini break abroad, you’ll need to double check you’ve packed your flight essentials, such as your:
  • Passport
  •  
  • Boarding passes
  •  
  • Credit cards
  •  
  • Medications (Check you can take them to a destination)
  •  
If you don’t, you could be turned away at the gate and forced to return home. It’s also a smart idea to take a copy of your passport and boarding passes should you lose the items on the journey home.

Toiletries & Beauty Products

It can be easy to forget your toothbrush or moisturiser when you’re busy booking accommodation and organising your outfits. However, if you want to avoid bad breath and feel good in your own skin, you should make sure you pack all essential toiletries and beauty products, such as:
  • A toothbrush and toothpaste
  •  
  • Hairbrush
  •  
  • Contact solution
  •  
  • Cleanser
  •  
  • Chewing Gum
  •  
  • Moisturiser
  •  
  • Makeup
  •  
  • Perfume
  •  
It’s also a smart choice to add your toiletries into a plastic bag, which will prevent your clothes from experiencing damage should one of the items leak in your luggage.

Sources of Entertainment

Travelling to your destination can be dull and laborious, especially if you have a long car, train or plane journey ahead of you. Make sure the hours quickly fly by stocking up on plenty of entertainment.
For example, you might need to take:
  • A newspaper or magazine
  •  
  • A tablet computer
  •  
  • Travel board game/pack of cards
  •  
  • A vape device and any accessories (which you can find at Ultimate Juice)
  •  
  • A camera
  •  
  • Laptop (Don’t forget your charger!)
  •  
Think carefully about how you plan to pass the time when travelling to your destination, so you don’t miss one essential off your list.

Holiday Items

Of course, there are some items you might need once you arrive at your destination, especially if you are enjoying a mini-break at a sunny destination.
For example, you might need to take:

  • Sun cream
  •  
  • After sun lotion
  •  
  • Sunglasses
  •  
  • A beach towel
  •  
  • Travel adapter
  •  
  • Smartphone charger
Forgetting one of the above items on your list could lead to sunburn, eye strain, or could prevent you from using your UK devices abroad, so make sure to add them onto your travel checklist if holidaying overseas. Often it is these simple 'little' things which enable us to have the most comfortable time.
