What to Pack: The Perfect Carry-On

I’ve always put as much thought into what I pack in my carry-on as I do my checked luggage, regardless of where I’m going to or how long I’m going to be there.
A perfectly packed carry-on can make your flight so much easier – not to mention save you should your checked luggage get lost. That said, here’s my list of carry-on essentials to keep you covered.

1. Unforgettables

  • Passport/ID
  • Boarding pass
  • Medication (prescriptions or ones not easily replaced)
  • Booking confirmation emails and itineraries
  • Liquid case
  • Camera equipment
  • Chargers, extra batteries and adapter plugs
  • Guidebook
  • City map
  • At least one extra outfit
  • Any other meaningful or expensive items you’d be upset to lose, such as jewellery

2. Entertainment

  • Phone, with offline games, music and headphones
  • Book and/or magazine
  • A pen and paper in case inspiration hits during transit
  • Snacks

3. Rest and relaxation

  • Eye mask (contoured if you want to avoid smearing your eye make-up)
  • Neck pillow
  • Ear plugs

4. Quick fixes

  • Wet wipes
  • Hand and body lotion
  • Lip balm
  • Travel-sized toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Roll-on deodorant
  • Mini sanitizer bottle
  • Refillable water bottle
  • A spare carrier bag or pillow case to put your dirty clothes in
