So I’d like to share with you all what I normally pack on my carry on for international flights and give you some tips and advice as to what you should know when it comes to packing.

Here is a list of my carry on travel essentials:

  • Passport
  • Wallet
  • Mobile phone and charger
  • Laptop and charger
  • Powerbank
  • Headphones
  • Water bottle (make sure that you drink your water or empty it before going through the security checkpoint at the airport. After you have gone through you will be able to fill your water bottle up)
  • Reading book
  • Notebook
  • Pen
  • Lip balm
  • Hand sanitiser
  • Antibacterial wipes
  • Hand moisturiser
  • Sleeping eye mask
  • Facial wipes
  • Perfume
  • Toiletries (deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste)
  • Make up
  • Sunglasses
  • Underwear and socks
  • Spare change of clothes

Please note that to prevent your liquid items from being thrown out, at the security checkpoint at the airport ensure that the liquids are 100mls or under.
