Travel Tips

  • Choose the lightest of everything to pack. This goes for your clothing, bag, toilet accessories, shoes, electrical goods and sleeping gear. The lighter your total package the lighter it is on your back or the end of your arm.
  • Pack your bag with all the heavier items towards the middle, soft items on the bottom and light things at the top. If you are carrying your bag on your back this will be particularly beneficial as the load will be evenly and comfortably distributed.
  • Try to minimise the risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) on long flights. DO NOT sit still or cross your legs for long periods. DO regularly exercise your feet and legs. Flight socks, Push Cush, Back and Neck pillows, Motion Sickness bands, Sleeping mask, ear plugs and leg works pillow are great for long flights.

  • Many hotels and hostels do not even provide basic laundry facilities. In many instances a plug is not provided for basin or bath. A universal plug, inflatable coat hangers, pegless clothesline and travel wash are a great idea to take travelling.
  • Good quality socks go the distance. They may cost a little more, but they certainly make a difference. They also manage moisture better by wicking it away from your feet and prevent blisters.
  • A poncho will just shelter your bag whereas a pack liner will ensure that rain and moisture definitely will not seep through to your belongings. If you use both, your bag will not absorb/soak up the rain and become heavier.
  • Nalgene jars and bottles are leak proof and very tough. They are great for minimising the space used by products like coffee, soaps, detergents etc. This means you only take the amount you need.
  • Keep your valuables (passport, tickets, credit cards etc.) close to your body and concealed. Carry only enough cash in a wallet or handbag as you are likely to use in 1-2 days. Remember to keep a list of all your credit card details, passport number, flight details and driver licence number- keep this list in a secure online email or with a friend at home.
  • A spare lock is a great idea when travelling. Keep one on your daypack (to lock the pack) and an extra inside. This way you will always have one for lockers at train stations, tourist attractions or if you’re main lock is cut or lost.
  • On luggage with many compartments, you could use traditional travel locks (or TSA locks if going to USA) on the main compartments and Tamper Tell seals on the remaining compartments.
  • By the time you’ve acquired all your gear you’ll have quite a lot. Stuff sacks, compression sacks and pack cubes are great for organising gear in your bag. Sacks come in a wide range of colours. This means you can use colour coding so you’ll know what is in which sack. Shoe bags are great for taking an extra pair of shoes and keeping them separate from the rest of your packable gear.
  • In most countries, a kettle is not provided in your hotel room (UK,Australia & New Zealand usually do provide kettles). A compact travel jug or water boiler is a convenient and economical alternative.
