The Ultimate Packing List for all Types of Travel

The Ultimate Packing List for all Types of Travel

If you know me, you can definitely say I liked to be organized (maybe a little too much). As organized as I can be, there is always a chance that I can forget something important. (Trust me, I’ve forgotten bras, underwear and even my eye contacts! Ugh, it’s the worst!) That is why I started creating a travel checklist while I pack for a trip. It helps save time and frustration.

The Ultimate Packing List for all Types of Travel

Here is the list I use for the trips I go on throughout the year. I hope you all find it helpful for when you pack for your next vacation:

The Priorities:

The Ultimate Packing List for all Types of Travel
  • Purse
  • Wallet
  • Passport (if you are traveling out of the country)
  • Copies of Your Passport
  • Driver’s License (if you are traveling domestically or even if you are planning on renting a car)
  • Money
    • Cash (both in your own currency and the currency for where you are traveling to)
    • Credit cards(s) (it is important to call your bank and let them know where you are traveling to)
  • Cell Phone (If you are traveling overseas, make sure to contact your cell phone provider and get an international plan. It is worth it in case of an emergency or if you need to get in touch with someone back home. A cost saving option is picking up a SIM card when you arrive at your destination’s airport.)
  • Portable Cell Phone Charger
  • Laptop
  • Camera (For Photography and Videography)
  • Other Electronics (GoPro, iPad, Kindle, Tablet, tripods, etc.)
  • Chargers for your Electronics
  • Electrical Adapter(s) for the Country(s) you are Visiting (Even if you don’t have one, it is easy to find a cheap one when you are at your destination or even at the airport.)
  • Eye Contacts, Glasses, Eye Solution, Etc.
  • Prescription Medication & Birth Control

Toiletries, Necessities and Sleepwear:

The Ultimate Packing List for all Types of Travel
  • Pajamas
  • Underwear (Bring more than you need.)
  • Bras (Don’t forget those strapless or cutlet bras for when you wear that cute dress or top!)
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Dental Floss
  • Mouthwash
  • Other Dental Products
  • Hair Brush
  • Shampoo & Conditioner

  • Razor
  • Lotion
  • Body Wash
  • Soap
  • Facial Washes
  • Deodorant
  • Other Facial, Skin Care and Beauty Products
  • Makeup
  • Makeup Remover
  • Perfume/Cologne
  • Cotton Balls and Q-tips
  • Jewelry (I recommend bringing costume jewelry and nothing worth a lot of value. For women who are engaged/married, it is best to leave your engagement ring at home and just wear your wedding band. Having expensive jewelry on you makes you a target for robberies and getting mugged. Also for single women or those who aren’t married yet, it is recommended to get a cheap band ring to put on your left ring finger to avoid unwanted attention at certain destinations.)

    I always seem to forget an adapter for power. Then I end up having to buy something when I get there.
