Packing Hacks for a Streamlined Getaway
There are two types of travel packers—the one who meticulously rolls and folds every item of clothing in a precise technique that she has curated over the years, then there’s the woman who throws everything in a bag three hours before her flight. One might be a little too time consuming, but the other leaves you with three bathing suits on a ski vacation. Embassy Suites by Hilton™ shares their best packing hacks to get you out the door and having fun in a flash.
Stock up on your favorite luxury products by visiting a department or cosmetics store and requesting samples of all your travel must-haves.
When packing for the family, organize individual outfits into Ziploc bags. Then, with a marker, write each family member’s name on the front for easy access.
Turn a pot holder into a safe carrying case for your curling or flatiron so you can throw it into your bag even if it’s still warm.
If you’re traveling with delicate or glass items—think perfume or wine bottles—pack them into shoes or tall boots for maximum protection.
To avoid the dreaded tangled mess of jewelry post-flight, separate earrings and rings into a pill container, and string the ends of your necklaces through straws.
Cover the bottoms of your shoes with a shower cap to avoid errant dirt or debris from getting all over your clothes.
Traveling isn’t always easy, but it can be pretty great. At Embassy Suites by Hilton™, guests are welcomed with a two-room suite, free made-to-order breakfast, and complimentary drinks* and snacks each night. Find out more at embassysuites.hilton.com.
