5 Essential Items To Take With You, While Travelling

No matter whether you’re planning a week-long skiing holiday in the Alps or a relaxing cycling tour of Southern France, there are some items that you simply have to pack. Here are the top 5 items that will be essential to your holiday happiness.

First Aid Kit

It is very important that you pack any medications, inhalers and any other medical items that you require on a regular basis. It is also advisable to take plasters, dressings and antiseptic creams, just in case of any minor incidents. And don’t forget to take high-factor sun tan lotion, after-sun cream if you’re heading to warmer climes!

Travel Insurance Documents

It is sensible to purchase comprehensive travel insurance, which will safeguard your finances in the event of illness or injury abroad. You should also take the policy documents as proof that you can provide reimbursement for any care that is provided. Some foreign authorities will ask to see travel insurance before granting access to travellers.


It is advisable to pack a lightweight camera, that you can take on explorations your chosen holiday destination. Ideally it will be durable enough to cope with minor drops and bumps. You might also be interested in waterproof cameras, that can be used to take shots oceanic wonders.


You are encouraged to pack clothes that accord with the weather and customs in the country that you’re visiting. If you’re taking a holiday in 2013 to South America, then a number of travel experts such as Directline Holidays suggest that you should load your suitcase with lightweight shirts and shorts. However, if you’re planning adventures in the Arctic then it would be better to pack a warm coat and Salopettes.

Mobile Phone

If you’re keen to maintain contact with friends and loved ones while you’re abroad then you should pack a mobile phone. You might even want to invest in an internet enabled device, for entertainment on the go!
