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.
