Pack Perfectly: Your Ultimate Travel Checklist & Guide

Check List: Before You Go

  • Passport Patrol: Is your passport valid for more than 6 months? A passport with fewer than 6 months left is about as useful as a chocolate teapot.
  • Insured & Assured: Do you have your travel insurance? Have you declared any pre-existing medical conditions and ensured you’re covered for them? Better safe than sorry!
  • Ticket Time: Are your tickets issued in the correct name? Avoid awkward “Who are you?” moments at check-in.
  • Currency Converter: Have you sorted your foreign currency? Smiles and good intentions won’t pay for souvenirs.
  • Vax & Go: Have you got your vaccination certificate and passport? Some places care more about your shots than your charm.


Packing List: Your Ultimate Guide

Document Bag:

  • Passports: You can’t travel far without these.
  • Driver’s License: For when you need to prove you can drive a car, or just your age.
  • Foreign Currency Card: Because carrying wads of cash is so last century.
  • Visa / Mastercard: Your lifeline in plastic form.
  • Travel Insurance Policy: The document you hope you never need.
  • Vaccine Passports: Proof that you’re germ-free.
  • Travel Itinerary: Your roadmap to adventure.
  • Ticket Copies: Backup for your e-tickets.
  • Foreign Cash: Because you can’t tip with kind words.


Wearing on the Day of Travel:

  • Smart-Casual Outfit: Look fly while you fly.
  • Comfortable Shoes: Your feet will thank you.
  • Warm Jacket for Cold Flight: Planes love to recreate the Arctic.
  • Money Belt/Neck Safe/Purse/Wallet: Keep your valuables closer than your best friends.


Carry-on Bag:

  • Document Bag: Everything from the list above.
  • Electronics:
    • Camera & Charger: Capture memories, not regrets.
    • Phone & Charger: Your lifeline to the world.
    • Laptop or Tablet & Charger: For work or binge-watching.
    • Noise-Cancelling Headphones: Silence the crying baby in row 12.



    • 3 Days Worth of Medicines: Better safe than sorry.
    • 3 Days Worth of Underwear & Socks: No one likes a laundry emergency.
    • Change of Clothes to Suit the Destination: Be prepared for anything.
    • Toilet Bag (in a Zip-Lock Bag): Stay fresh on the go.
    • USB Stick: Because data can’t travel on its own.
    • Any Lithium or NiCad Batteries: These belong in your carry-on, not in your checked bag.
    • Empty Drink Bottle: Hydration is key. Fill it up after security.


Checked-in Bag:

  • Clothing:
    • 4 Days of Underwear & Socks: More essentials because, well, essentials.
    • 7 Days of Clothes to Suit the Destination: Dress for the adventure.
  • Extras:
    • Washing Powder: Keep your clothes fresh on the road.
    • Medicine Kit: For those just-in-case moments.
    • Hat: Shade or style, you decide.
    • Swimwear: Beaches and pools, here you come!
    • Walking Shoes: Explore comfortably.
  • Utilities:
    • Power Board: Charge all the things.
    • International Travel Adaptor: Because plugs aren’t universal, sadly.



Safe travels, and remember: adventure awaits, but preparation is key!


Oh my gosh, we all had a fantastic day out. Thank you so much. I really didn’t expect to like all those weird and wonderful snacks during the "Curious Food Train" activity, and didn’t think they would all participate. The staff all keep thanking us for such a great day. Looking forward to next years event!
