Are you planning to travel soon? As much as this time is exciting, it can also get pretty stressful. Starting from researching on where to go for vacation, to booking the tickets, packing the bags, putting someone in charge of the house and the pets, the list seems endless.
But this phase of planning and organizing your vacation can be stress free. You simply need to write everything down. I recently launched this simple yet functional travel planner set. It includes the most essential elements of what a family trip might involve.
Apart from having a relaxed and fun filled vacation, most important part of traveling is to make sure that you have all the essential documents with you, have the credit card, debit card or travelers checks, packed the required medications (if needed), packed all the winter or summer gear. You also need to make sure that you took care of the mail and delivery services, arranged for the pet care and so much more.
I created this travel packing checklist where all the important tasks that need to be done are listed.
This packing checklist has been divided into different sections so it is easier to go through each and every item. There are two versions included in the free download package. One is prefiiled checklist and other is empty. Prefilled ones cover almost everything you need to do before you leave the house. If it is missing anything, or if you wish to make your own, you can use the empty checklist.
Print as many copies as you want for personal use. Normally you will need two copies to cover everything up. It also depends on the number of members going to travel. You can print one copy for each person. If you have kids, give them each an empty checklist, so that they can fill it up. You can double check later, and make any corrections. Kids will feel responsible for taking care of their travel needs, if they can fill out their copies.
