Whether you are preparing for a spring break or a summer getaway, we understand that one of the most important, but sometimes difficult, parts of your travel experience is the packing. Have I packed enough clothing? Have I forgotten something important? Do I have everything I need for when I get there? Fear not! We have searched high and low for some fantastic holiday hacks for both your packing process, and when you arrive at your destination, so that whether you’re travelling over sea, sky or staying firmly on the ground, your travelling experience will be stress-free.
- Rolling vs Folding
Rolling your clothes not only creates more room in your suitcase when it comes to packing, but you’ll reduce the risk of wrinkles!
- Hair Conditioner
your hair conditioner has many advantages you may not have even thought of! It can be used as shaving phone, styling cream, bath cream, cuticle cream and even laundry detergent! Why not comb some through your hair before visiting the beach or pool for extra protection against sun damage and chlorine.
- Lip Balm Wallet
Keep a secret stash of spare money inside a lip balm tube for those cash emergencies.
- Guilt-Free Savings Jar
On the lead up to your break, pop any loose change you find into a jar, just the back of your sofa could help you with some guilt-free spending!
- Protect your phone
If you’re planning on spending some time on the beach, you’ll want to make sure that your phone doesn’t get damaged with sand or splashing. The best way to do this is to pop your phone inside a sandwich bag, you’ll be protected against any damage, and your touch screen will still work!
- Stop Leaks!
Put a layer of cling film over any toiletry bottles, then fasten the lid to avoid any spillage inside your suitcase.
- Fragile Baggage
If you fancy being a bit cheeky, mark your luggage with ‘fragile’ not only will it be handled with great care, fragile luggage will be the first to be released, making it easy for you to grab your belongings.
- Appy Days!
Stay organised by downloading relevant apps onto your smart phone. If you’re staying with us this season, why not download our Butlin’s App, for information on entertainment!
- Scan important documents!
Accidents do happen, so it’s a great idea to scan copies of any important documents! This way, you’ve got yourself covered.
