With the lowered checked luggage allowances airlines are offering these days, it is more important than ever to pack light, while still being sure to pack all the essentials you need for your trip. We've split this packing list by category, to make it easy to pack and make sure you have everything you need. Be sure to check your baggage allowance before you pack, to know how much weight you'll be allowed to bring. Happy Travels!
Let's start with clothing. Depending on where your travels will take you, be sure to pack appropriately for the weather and season. Don't forget to take into account what activities you have planned, and pack accordingly. The clothing checklist is split by sub-category, to make it easier for you to know what to bring on your type of trip.
Packing toiletries is where the little details come out. Keep in mind that the weight of toiletries does add-up. We suggest either getting some travel-sized toiletries, or simply using some travel-sized toiletry bottles to squeeze in your shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, etc. If packing this into your carry-on, be sure to comply with 3-1-1 TSA Carry-On Liquids Regulations.
There are strict limits on the quantity of liquids allowed through security. Please review the limits and packing instructions on the 2018 CATSA Flying with Liquids information page. If connecting through the USA, TSA 3-1-1 liquids regulations apply. Please see the 2018 TSA 3-1-1 Liquids in Carry-On section.
These travel documents are the most important things you need to pack, yet also the easiest to forget, as they are not every-day use items. Remember, the most important items are your Passport and a credit card - everything else can be bought on the spot in case of emergency.
When out on the road, the worse feeling is when you realise you forgot your camera's SD card, or the cable to charge your phone. Double-check these items to make sure you have all the accessories with you.
These are the little things to pack that will help to have a smooth journey, or make for an easier packing experience.
