hello Friends! It is still vacation season so today I wanted to share these ultimate travel packing list sets with you. We have traveled quite a bit and I have a good idea of what I need on a trip, so I like to be prepared for my travels. Since am a list-maker, I have a travel list that I use for most trips and have them in a printable form that you can print and use.
Things to consider when packing include:
- Trip Type (backpack, family road trip, cruise, etc.)
- Length of Stay
- Planned Activities
When my kids were old enough, they were responsible for packing their own items and you will find a free kids packing list on this page as well.
Why use a vacation packing list? Because I like to be prepared for a number of variables, most of all being weather, but also depending on the activities we end up doing. I like to keep my itinerary open for local events, local exploring and what I call unplanned events. I rarely forget anything thanks to these travel packing lists.
I also try to keep the lists to a minimum so that I can travel light and leave a little room for things I might want to bring back from the trip. Don’t forget to check the dollar store for inexpensive travel items.
Through my 30 years of travel, these are the items I have found to be the most helpful. If y0u have other suggestions to add, I would love to hear them in the comments.
There is a free packing list for vacation for adults, kids and even one for a cruise vacation since that list can differ a bit. The packing list for a cruise vacation will depend on your cruise.
While you can always buy what you forgot, chances are that it will cost you more to purchase at your location and it is better to have what you need on hand. Be sure to pin this so that you have it for your next trip. Don’t forget to check out my other packing tips too!
