Daydreaming about sun, sea, and sandy shores is delightful, but the daunting task of packing can quickly turn the dream into a dilemma - especially when your entire family is in tow.
Fear not! We’ve compiled some expert advice to have you packing like a pro.
But first, if you're gearing up for a family escapade, check out our latest Trunki Kid’s Suitcase designs – they’re the perfect companion for your little ones!
Streamline with a Packing List
Ever returned from a holiday having worn only a fraction of your wardrobe? Avoid such mishaps by creating a master packing list that you can use for every trip. Go digital to easily tweak and avoid misplacing it. Handy apps like TripList can also remind you to check in online.
Maximize Space with Clever Hacks
Mastering a few packing tricks can significantly increase the capacity of your suitcase. Opt for rolling clothes instead of folding to save space. Utilize empty nooks by stashing smaller items like underwear inside shoes or other handy spaces.
Simplify Your Toiletries
Toiletries can be bulky, but you rarely need full-sized bottles on vacation. Streamline your beauty routine by transferring products into smaller containers. A contact lens case is perfect for carrying a bit of foundation or hand cream.
Avoid Unpleasant Surprises
Nobody wants to open their suitcase to find shampoo leaked all over their clothes. Place a small square cut from a plastic bag under the screw-on lids to prevent leaks. Pack light-coloured clothes inside out to minimize the visibility of any marks.
Travel Hacks for Kids
Ensure a peaceful flight for everyone by keeping the little ones entertained. Pack their Trunki Ride-on Suitcase with enough toys, activities and snacks to keep them occupied. Opt for snacks that take longer to eat, like fruit or bagels. Lollipops can help with ear pain during takeoff and landing. Our Yondi Kid’s Neck Cushions can help keep them comfortable as well.
Preserve Your Wardrobe Freshness
Don't let your freshly laundered clothes acquire suitcase odors. Tuck a few tumble dryer sheets among your clothes to keep them smelling fresh. Grandma's Secret Wrinkle Remover is a handy product that smooths out creases with just a few sprays—no ironing required.
Arrival Pack Prep
Save time by preparing an arrival pack for your hand luggage. Include some local currency for tipping, a phrase book or a list of useful local terms, and weather-ready clothing for your holiday destination. Remember, even with an early flight, sunscreen is a must—don't forget the SPF!
