10 Things You Should Never Leave Home Without on Vacation

In all our lives and especially in the years that we've travelled, all of us will realize the fact there are not that many things we need on the road. Even the number of things we've carried in most of our journeys that we may never leave without from our homes have significantly reduced. If it's a weekend trip, business trip, or long vacation, the traveling essentials list can make us confused as to what to keep and what not to keep. Rather than worrying about how to make the list, read on this Fareferry's comprehensive list as it has been carefully made to ensure that you enjoy your trip fully and more importantly safely.

Phone Charger / Portable Charger

Phone Charger / Portable Charger

For capturing the travel moments on your phone or camera, it's important that the gadget should remain charged at all times. In modern day travel, we are using the phone not only for clicking pictures but also accessing multiple apps like Uber, Google Maps and GPS. If at any point of time, the battery gets discharged, the panic can creep in as to losing the way in an unknown destination. A portable charger or a phone charger has become a top necessity so that we don't have to worry about getting the phone charged. Carry a portable charger alongside if you're having other gadgets that require charging like earpieces, headphones and tablets.

Earphones / Headphones (Noise Cancellation)

Earphones / Headphones (Noise Cancellation)

Erstwhile we plan to travel alone, music can be our best buddy as it drives the boredom away and keeps the mood upbeat at all times. Nowadays, we can always tap into our music list or even listen to our favorite radio station from our phones only while we travel in planes or trains. Earphones or Headphones provide us the much needed privacy whilst listening to my kind of music without disturbing the co-passengers. Buy some good quality noise-cancellation headphones that allow you to take phone calls without having the background noise.

Eye Mask

Eye Mask

An innovative modern day invention, that helps your eyes relax just as if you're in a dark room and that too without having to disturb any one around you. The things around us, after a long-haul flight or being jet-lagged, may seem very bright for our eyes. Even if you want to take a nap between two outing sessions in your hotel room, an eye mask lets you do that very easily. You can go for those funky ones which have cooling gel inside that help to give that refreshing feel to the eyes. In case you’re unable to get the desired ones, even a pair of huge sunglasses or anything to protect or cover your eyes becomes essential while you travel.

Travel Blanket

Travel Blanket

A travel blanket is quite important travel essential whether you vacate to go to a colder region or the hottest point on the planet. Very lightweight, compact and easy to pack; these travel blankets should be cozy and be able to comfort your partner throughout your trip. A blanket made from soft micro plush material should be able to provide you maximum comfort and keeps you warm always. Buy the one which comes in a soft carrying case that has a hand luggage belt so that you can attach it with your suitcase or hand luggage.

Refillable Water Bottle

Refillable Water Bottle

Keeping yourself hydrated during travel is vital to keep good health at all times. You need to drink lots of water and either you’ve to buy water bottles from the local stores or you can carry personal refillable water bottle where ever you travel. A water bottle can be another key travel mate especially when you are vacating in a different country as buying a water bottle every time can be expensive and even the stores may not have the ones at all times. Bringing your own water bottle during holidays is vital if you desire to avoid the hassle of looking for places to buy the water bottle from, then just keep a reusable one which you can also strap on your backpack. 

Insect Repellent

Insect Repellent

Whenever we plan to travel to a different place, we may not realize the different unexpected insects that might come across and spoil the fun unnecessarily. You never know how soon they'll become a cause of worry and you'll have to run for cover. Keep some insect repellents such as lotions, patches or bands in your essential travel kit so it doesn’t hinder your travel fun. If you’re going on trekking and plan to stay in camps overnight, the insect repellents must be carried at all times to reduce the risk of falling ill due to an insect bite. 

Essential Medications

Essential Medications

If you have a medical condition such as being diabetic, have blood pressure, anxiety, migraine problems or have been prescribed regular medications which are critical for your well-being at home or while holidaying. Please ensure to keep medications much before you pack other things and if possible keep the prescription or an extra refill handy required in case of emergency. If possible, make a thorough research beforehand on medical system of destination you’re traveling to and the chances of drug availability & drug laws prevailing for dealing with emergency situations. 

Sunscreen

Sunscreen

A good sunscreen is a basic requirement whenever we travel to tropical destinations and yet we always take it lightly when we are travelling. Put on the sunscreen when moving out and it will keep you protected from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Not only it will avoid burns, rashes or any kind but can also take care of skin issues caused by the heat. 

A good quality sunscreen should be part of your travel skincare regime and surely your skin would be pleased for the entire time, while you would be enjoying your trip. The travel sun care kit should have sunscreen that provides optimum protection from the damaging effects of the UV rays. The products in the kit should be reef friendly, water resistant, paraben free and vegan.

Don’t Forget Your Id’s

Don’t Forget Your Id’s

If traveling to overseas location, your passport is a must along with other identification proofs. Travel document checklist should entail the plane or train tickets, visa for the destination country if required, attraction tickets, hotel vouchers, photocopies of passport, along with others. In most foreign destinations, bringing along age proof, name proof, and proof of citizenship is enough if you’re a US citizen. 

 

Neck Pillow

Neck Pillow

Traveling for longer stretch of time may leave you with a cramped neck as sitting in same posture for hours can be very vigorous at times. But if you are in a plane in the middle of the air and your neck is not comfortable for even a couple of hours then it can turn out to be devastating for neck and complete body. Buy a soft neck pillow as a precaution and carry the same on the flight or train journey that perfectly suits your comfort measures. A travel neck pillow should be easy to pack and lightweight, should be adjustable and versatile to be effective in providing support to your neck, shoulder, back or cervical spine.
