The Secret of Travelling Light – it’s Not as Hard as it Seems

Posted on February 13, 2017 at 11:00 am

Lots of travellers find it difficult to travel light. They end up over-packing their suitcase or backpack, meaning that it is too heavy to carry around easily and might even break. It’s much easier to just travel light in the first place. Here are some top tips from our team of experienced travellers:

Ask yourself the question – do you really need it? If the answer if no, don’t take it. You will find that so many of your travel ‘essentials’, like that extra pair of shoes or your most expensive makeup, just aren’t essentials at all.

  • Don’t pack last minute. Give yourself plenty of time to really consider what you are packing. Make a list and get everything together before actually packing it.
  • Take travel-sized accessories like shower gel and toothpaste. This will save you a lot of space.
  • Buy some things when you arrive at your destination. Toiletries may be cheaper and easier to buy, so that it matters less if you leave them behind.
