Things You Need For Your Next Trip Away

Disclosure: This is a partnered post. Please welcome today's contributor.

Traveling is a great way of gaining life experience and being able to see those iconic monuments or landmarks that you’ve only been able to see in books or online up until now. With that being said, there are some crucial things you’ll need for your travel, so here are things you need for your next trip away.

Travel Insurance

The reality of travel is, you never know what could happen. When traveling to a different country, it’s really important that you protect yourself in the event that you get into an accident. When you need the assistance of those healthcare workers over in a different country, there may be a different cost to pay for the treatments you have. With that being said, it’s important to get travel insurance because it’s going to ensure that this is covered in the unfortunate event something does happen.

Travel insurance is so affordable and it’s something you should purchase as soon as your holiday is booked and confirmed. Most holiday insurances will cover both the time you’re there and the days or months leading up to the holiday.

Comfortable Clothing

The travel part itself is something that isn’t always a comfortable experience, especially when you’re sitting in the economy of a plane for a long-haul journey or you’re on a packed train with no seats. With that being said though, you can still get some degree of comfort by wearing comfortable clothing. This can be a great help when trying to relax in the space you’re in, regardless of whether it’s a comfy one or not.

Pack some comfortable clothing for the trip to the destination and also when traveling back. The more relaxed the clothing is, the better.

A Watch

It sounds silly but a watch can be something that’s useful for when traveling. Our devices are handy to have in order to tell the time, that is until they run out of battery. Now, unless you have a case of bad luck, Casio watches aren’t like going to stop working unless it’s been a long time since you replaced the battery.

It can often be more of a fashion statement now but a watch can be handy if you need the time and you’re unable to get to it on your phone.

Universal Travel Adapter

The humble universal travel adapter can help save you from running out of battery, wherever you go around the world. The thought of not having it can often be a nightmare for those who need access to their mobile device, as well as other electronic devices. It’s a definite must-have to have in your carry-on and it’s worth having a few spare just in case anything were to happen to the one you’re using. Again, our electronic devices don’t tend to last that long unfortunately due to our usage.

By having everything you need for your trip away, you can enjoy the experience a lot more as a result. Use these tips to ensure you have the above when you next go traveling.


  1. Universal travel adapter - very good tip. Power sources are definitely not the same across the globe.

  2. I was so happy we purchased travel insurance for a trip we bought for Mariah right before the pandemic started. We were able to get all of our money back when everything closed down.

  3. Definitely having ways to use technology when/if needed is a good one.

  4. Thanks for the reminder. I'll keep these tips on mind.

  5. These are all important, especially the travel insurance. Back in 2018, my family traveled to UK and France. When we got to Paris, my husband suffered from pneumonia that eventually led to a heart attack. It was our travel insurance that saved us from all the expenses including the medical repatriation.

  6. Some of the a must things to have in every travels and I wish to have at least one trip this year.

  7. Fantastic tips, after the pandemic hopefully we will be able to use all of them.

  8. Yes to all these things, I always have these items when I travel!

  9. I have been traveling domestically the entire time. My next trip is next week to La Jolla! Love the tips, I will be sure to use some of these!

  10. How i miss these days!!! I can't wait to go back to traveling and exploring, can't wait!!!

  11. The travel adapter is so necessary, I sometimes forget it about it. Great tips for packing

  12. Oh yes! Comfortable clothing is key. I can't wait to travel more frequently. I miss it!

  13. I’d like to go to western Nebraska. It’s pretty, and with the pandemic - not too many people. My husband on the other option thinks we need a big trip because we haven’t had one in a few years.

  14. Yes to all of these things - especially the travel adapter - a must and so expensive to buy while travelling
