We have hundreds of attractions in ideal locations for city breaks such as Paris, London, Amsterdam and Barcelona. When packing for a weekend away we often opt for the more frugal option of “Hand Luggage Only”. This can sometimes prove difficult for us ladies when it comes to what to pack. We have created a list of general Hand Luggage Essentials which you can refer to when packing those little carry ons!
Absolute Essentials (or you won’t be going anywhere!)
Passport / ID
Accommodation Documents and Directions
Foreign Currency (Check before what currency you need!)
Front Door Keys/Car keys
Phone Charger (and another other charger needed)
Plug Adapter (If going outside the Ireland / UK)
Toiletries (You can also buy some these in the airport)
Makeup (nder 100mil)
Deodorant (under 100mil)
Body Spray/ Perfume (under 100mil)
Face Wipes/Cleanser (under 100mil)
Moisturiser (under 100mil)
Shampoo and Conditioner (under 100mil)
Shower Gel (under 100mil)
Toothpaste (Under 100 Mill)
Hair pins/Hair Ties
Outfits (x as many days you’re there. *Tip: 1 Bottoms x 3 tops) (Pub Outfit | Going Outfit | Smart Outfit)
At least two pairs of shoes (In case in rains etc)
Sweets for the plane (If you’re prone to ear popping!)
Its a good idea to check to see if your accommodation supplies towels, hair driers and toiletries so you can spare some room in your luggage bag; Particularly if you are going more than a couple of days. We also recommend rolling your clothes instead of folding to fit more in.
We hope you can use this list as a helpful guide next time you are packing. It may help alleviate any pre-holiday stress! Enjoy your city breaks and remember to check our website for any offers and discounts before you go!
