Top Packing Tips by Ascendant Holidays
Rolling clothes, as opposed to folding them, will make them more compact in the suitcase. This can be an excellent way to save space in the bag for other items, especially ones that take more space like shoes and clothes that might not be able to be rolled up.
Special Tip: 1
Be sure the clothes are folded nicely before rolling to prevent wrinkles.
Only bring one or two pairs of shoes, and plan it accordingly so that the shoes can be worn for multiple occasions. Bring a comfortable pair for the typical activities, like walking and sightseeing, and a fancier pair that can be worn if a night out to dinner is on the agenda. Shoes can take up a lot of space, but this is a great way to make sure there’s more room for other essential items.
Don’t bring the toiletries you don’t need. Most hotels and resorts provide shampoos and other essentials. If you only use something once a week, the chances are that you won’t need it on vacation. If it’s possible, bring travel sizes of some of the toiletries that are needed on a daily basis.
Special tip #3
Keep your medications with you at all times have a smaller tote bag in case the plane you are going on is smaller and regular carryon will not fit.
You never want to be without your meds.
