Holidays inevitably mean packing. Whether you’re super organised, find packing a necessary evil or are a self-confessed last-minute panic packer, here’s our Hour Hands top tips to help you pack stress-free.
If you’re flying, know the baggage allowance and avoid additional costs
Always check the size and weight restrictions with your airline, but you can use Skyscanner’s information as a guide
Whether you write your own list, download from the internet or prefer the convenience of anapp, we definitely recommend using a packing checklist. Apps have many benefits and come into their own if you’re planning multiple trips and want to add a ‘must remember’ item, or if you need to plan for a specific type of trip.
As simple as 5,4,3,2,1
For efficient packing, we love the 5,4,3,2,1 method. This is a great way of packing light but giving yourself plenty of outfit options. So you pack:
- 5 tops
- 4 bottoms
- 3 dresses and 3 pairs of shoes
- 2 bags and 2 swimwear
- 1 pair of sunglasses and 1 hat
