Anyone in the mood for travel? If you are, you are probably excited about your getaway trip. Summer is almost over but there is still time to plan for your next adventure. While traveling within the states doesn’t require a passport, going overseas may require more preparation ahead of time. There are a few things every Fly Girl needs to have with her. Not sure what to bring on your next flight out? Well, read up on our list of must-have travel essentials for every Official Fly Girl:
All Necessary Travel Documents: Passports, travel insurance, and visas are all important for any girl who sets her sights on traveling the world. Make sure you have all docs organized and signed before you go.
A Neck Pillow: If you’re on a long flight, we all like to kick back, relax, and take a nap. Instead of waking up with a stiff neck, get yourself a neck pillow. For our babes who are subscribed to the Brown Sugar Box, they received a customized inflatable pillow in their July box.
An Emergency Kit: No matter where you go, you want to be prepared for any emergencies. Things like a flashlight, a pocketknife, a first-aid kit, and extra batteries for electronics are essential to keep in your bag.
Luggage Tags: There’s nothing worse than showing up to the conveyor belt to find out that 10 different people have the same suitcase as you. To make sure that you’re grabbing the right suitcase, all you need is a cute luggage tag. This will help set your cases apart from the rest.
Get Your Technology Powered Up: If you are a digital nomad, then you know how vital it is to have a laptop with you. If your phone is down, a laptop is your next best thing to communicate with loved ones back at home. Consider packing extra batteries, cell phone chargers, and SIM cards. Using free text messaging apps, like Whatsapp, are ideal if you want to save money on your communication needs.
Get Your Money In Place: If you are planning to travel overseas, be sure to convert your US money to the other country’s currency. Have a budget in mind as you figure out how much you will need to spend on hotels, transportation, and food. When you have your basic needs down, see how much of the currency you want to spend for fun. Research the museums, tours, and other events beforehand to keep track of your coins.
