What To Pack For Vacation: Packing List


Are you going to vacation? And you ask what to pack for vacation? We have compiled a comprehensive list of things you will need on your vacation, verified by years of travel experience. And if you forget something, don’t despair. Today you can buy everything (except the passport).

The list below is intended primarily for those of you who travel to the sea or ocean on holiday in the summer and will be accommodated in an apartment or hotel.

Before we start packing, we will give you three tips:

1. Pack some of the items on the list in hand luggage. Documents and medicines are especially important, but a prepared water bottle and a snack on hand will also make your travel easier.

2. Remember the principle: The less things you carry, the better. Therefore, take the list as a recommendation and select only what you really use.

3. Leave a place for souvenirs in the suitcase. You will most likely not go empty on holiday. Count on the packaging with the reserve.
