You have likely read it before. What to pack when heading out for that perfect vacation. Expert after expert will remind you to bring you toothbrush and not to forget that converter and charger when you travel but aside from the glaringly obvious, what shouldn’t you bring along? Coconut Club Vacations invites you to take a closer look at our list of what NOT to bring on your next vacation.
Full-size bottles of product – not only will large bottles of shampoos and other products be banned from your carry on thanks to TSA’s 3-1-1 Rule, but you are just wasting energy and space as well and can face disaster of your bag is crushed during your flight. You will likely only need a few days or more of product for your vacation so the travel-size containers will work just fine. If you don’t want to waste your money on the travel-size portions, simply buy the small empty bottles and fill them with your own supplies.
Irreplaceable valuables – not only are you just begging to be robbed if you wear a priceless diamond necklace, but you also risk not being able to replace your item as well. There is no reason to risk something of value to your family when you travel. Err on the side of caution and leave the valuables at home.
Towels – unless you will be in some remote, far off destination without the modern conveniences including towels, leave the towels at home, most hotels will have as many towels as you will need.
Credit cards you won’t be using – another thing most people just forget to consider, if you are not using a credit card, leave it at home and don’t risk it being lost or stolen.
Sports equipment – unless you are a professional playing professionally during your trip, leave the sports equipment at home. There are plenty of place to rent a surfboard for a few dollars a day, as well as a bike, a tennis racket or even a basketball. Don’t back them, rent them and save yourself some hassles.
Anything not allowed on the plane – this is the most obvious but if you want to keep something, if it is not allowed on a plane, things like weapons, don’t bring them. You would be surprised how many people who ignore this rule.
Just a few of the many things you may want to leave at home, you too can have a brilliant vacation experience with a little common sense and planning before you go.
