Whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure, you’ll always need to deal with the sometimes-daunting task of packing your suitcase.
Before you go on your next trip, check out these tips from Skyscanner Australia on how to avoid common packing mistakes.
Not knowing your limits
There is nothing more annoying than finishing packing your suitcase, only to get to the airport to find you are over the baggage limit and will get hit with a massive charge.
The solution? Research your airline’s baggage size and weight restrictions ahead of time, and make sure to give yourself some wriggle room for souvenirs or other purchases.
Not planning ahead
There is no point packing an endless amount of bikinis or two pairs of your favourite boardies only to find you’ve planned your beachside holiday in the middle of monsoon season. Don’t assume that just because it looks like a warm destination means you shouldn’t pack some light layers; deserts can get cold at night and summer in some places can still be the wet season.
