Planning for a trip can be stressful. Knowing what to keep with you and what to pack away can become confusing, especially when you are going on a long journey. Here are our top 7 items that are essential for your carry-on bag.

1. Passport

It goes without saying that your passport is the most important thing you need in your carry-on bag when travelling, especially if you are travelling abroad. Not only will you need your passport to board your flights, but you will also be able to use it as a form of identification anywhere you go. Keeping it in your carry-on bag allows you much easier access to it and keeps it safer as it is always on you.

2. Phone and chargers

Making sure you have any chargers you need for electronic devices especially your phone, is important so that you do not run out of battery on your journey. You may need your phone to access travel documents or booking confirmation emails.

3. Entertainment

There is nothing worse than being bored on a flight or car journey. Bringing a book, magazine, or even just your headphones to listen to music or watch/play something on your phone, are great ways to keep yourself occupied. A lot of planes and cars have charging ports now as well, therefore, you don’t need to worry about running out of charge on any of your devices.

4. Travel documents

Just like your passport, one of the main things you will want to remember is a copy of any important documents you may need such as hotel booking confirmations or events tickets. Having a physical copy of these rather than them just being on your phone, adds an extra layer of security just in case your phone dies and you can’t charge it or you lose access to these documents.

5. Medication

Keeping your daily medications in your carry-on rather than in your main luggage, allows you easier access to them. Also, it keeps them safer just in case your main luggage gets lost or stolen.

6. Mini toiletries bag

Taking a min toiletries bag with you is a good idea, especially if you are on a long journey. Packing things such as face wipes, deodorant, a toothbrush and toothpaste are ideal. Having these can help you freshen up during a long day of travelling and make you feel better.

7. Water and snacks

Taking your own water and snacks is a must, especially if you are going to the airport. Airport prices aren’t cheap, therefore, taking your own snacks and water can help save you a lot of money. It is also a good idea if you have any allergies or dietary requirements, this way you can make sure you have something to eat and drink whilst you are travelling.
