Smart Packer

March 5th, 2006

Most avid travellers will have a tip or two up their sleeves on how to pack travel gear earned through experience.

If you’re going on a road trip the main principles are simple: the heavy items and non-essentials go at the bottom of the trunk and the perishables should be kept in a cooler making sure those snacks for the road are nice and easy to reach . If your trip is an epic journey across no mans land – remember too that in your mission to achieve perfect space optimisation – keep the air gauge and compressor for your tires and gerry can (preferably full) within quick and easy reach.

When it comes to air travel remember that including gas bottles and batteries in your checked luggage is a sure way to have your baggage left behind for inspection. On the other hand any sharp instruments including pocket knives, tweezers and nail clippers should be checked to avoid confiscation at the security points.

Unless you are travelling alone, it’s also a good idea to split your gear between two or more bags. That way if one bag arrives without the other, you’ll be kitted out for a day or two while you wait for the telephone call from lost luggage. If you’re in this unlucky position, remember that if you’ve booked your tickets on your credit card some financial institutions will reimburse at a prescribed rate for each day your bag is held up.
