The holiday travel season is fast approaching. Whether you’re traveling to a sunny or wintery destination, packing smart can save you a lot of headaches along the way.

Like planning for your getaway, it’s always good to have a checklist of essential items you’ll need for your trip. Packing too much or too little can sometimes get you into a jam, especially when fancy dinners pop-up or worst off, you’re stuck hauling a heavy luggage of unneeded items for the entire trip.

Choosing the right luggage and carry-on bag should also be top of mind when you’re packing to ensure you’re traveling comfortably. Check out some of the latest Travelpro® luggage collection and for a limited time, get up to $100 mail-in rebate1 on your next CAA in-store purchase.

The right travel bag.

Be sure to choose a luggage and/or carry-on that’s versatile and lightweight to hold everything you need for your holiday. Travel bags have come a long way from rolling luggages and tote/duffle bags to high tech backpacks and purses, there are a lot of choices to meet everyone’s travel needs.

The essentials.

Don’t forget to pack these essentials before anything else. Make sure you’ve got your passport/visa, travel insurance documents, boarding pass/tickets, currency and credit cards, emergency contact details, medication, toiletries and of course your house keys. 

Handy travel gadgets.

Depending on what you’re doing on your trip, you may want to consider packing your mobile phone, a good camera, chargers, a tablet or small laptop to watch your favourite shows on the go, and a power bank for when you’re out and about.

Wardrobe ready.

Packing clothes and shoes for any trip can be daunting. Even if you’re a seasoned globetrotter or it’s your first time traveling, it’s always good to be prepared for the unexpected party, theatre show, or long walking excursions. Finding clothes that can be worn with multiple outfits is usually key to reducing the number of pieces you’ll need to bring and limiting jackets, accessories and shoes can also help. Nonetheless, the amount of clothing you’ll need is highly dependent on your destination and duration of your trip.

‘Tis the season for travel!
