This might sound like an obvious essential but imagine your horror of getting to the airport and realising you have left your passport or tickets behind. Pack these last so that they are at the top of your bag or if you are taking one, pack them in your handbag which can then be added to your hand luggage if needed.

Headphones

red headphones

Don’t forget your headphones, especially when you’re travelling long haul. Most airlines will provide you with a pair but you can’t beat your own pair of headphones. Whether you want to listen to music, watch films or play games, buying a pair of noise cancelling headphones will help you relax and shut out any noise going on around you.

If you’re a book worm and like to bury yourself in a good read, make sure you include some good reading material in your hand luggage. Whether it’s a book or magazine, flying brings plenty of time to get your head in a book. You can also have a read at any time spend waiting around at the airport as well as once you reach your destination.

Valuables

If you must take your valuables on holiday with you, pack them in your carry on rather than your suitcase. This way you can better ensure they are safe. This includes cameras, iPads, mobile phones and expensive or valuable jewellery items. Image how you would feel if your suitcase went missing if it contained a lot of expensive items.
