If you’re travelling anywhere this summer then you are most likely going to have to pack a suitcase (hopefully hand luggage!) To help you with this task, I’ve created a packing checklist that you can print and tick off while you get on with your packing.

I have found that making a checklist is the best way to ensure you don’t forget anything – cause, let’s be honest – how many times have you forgotten your pyjama? Or your toothbrush? Or your phone charger? There’s always something that slips our mind.

Contrary to what you may think, checklist making is actually very fast and convenient – You can do this on the go with apps like Wunderlist or even on your notes app. However, now that you are here, you don’t need to worry about that. I have made a checklist that should work for everyone and for any summer holiday you need to pack for. So, if you’re too lazy to make your own checklist, feel free to always use this instead!

Your Summer Holiday Packing Checklist

And BAM! You’re ready to go on holiday.

Of course don’t forget to pack your handbag with:

  • Passport or ID Card
  • Mobile Phone
  • Hotel or Apartment details
  • Camera and charger
  • Wallet
  • Earphones
  • Book

Another trick I would recommend practicing is thinking exactly what you’re going to take for each of the things listed above. For example, you may have many dresses you want to pack but, practically, you only need to take 3 – don’t over-pack! 

I like to write down some outfit ideas next to each item. You can read more on how to pack light for a holiday here. In that blog post you will also be able to learn how you can avoid paying for additional luggage when you fly, no matter where or for how long you are going.

Thanks for reading! Let me know in the comments what else would you add to this checklist? And what do you use to ensure you don’t forget anything when you are packing?
