5 Essentials for Regular Travelers

Pandemic restrictions have been lifted. Borders to enter the neighbouring countries have been opened. Wearing masks has become optional. After more than 2 years of staying at home, travel-lovers now have the chance to explore the world again!

We missed it too. Whether it’s with others or just on our own; a day trip or a weekend getaway; to a new adventure or an old favorite destination, we’ll have any kind of travel at this point! If you’re like us and are eager to finally get going, you might easily rush and forget some essentials. Join us as we remember to pack these travel must-haves to better ensure a stress-free and more enjoyable journey!

1. Cash 

Digital payments have become a huge favorite in this modern world. They can be easy, safe, and convenient. 

But while many establishments now accept credit cards and e-wallets as a form of payment, it is still smart to bring a sufficient amount of cash. Cash is widely accepted in paying for food, shopping, and more. By being mindful of every cent that you spend, you could prevent yourself from splurging as in the case of frequent credit card usage.

If you are traveling to a different country, always remember to exchange your currency beforehand.

2. Toiletries

You never know when nature calls, so be prepared to answer it anytime on your trip! Do you always have your wet wipes with you? Plus, have you prepared your oral care, hair & body products, and other personal hygiene items?

Toiletries can be easy to pack, especially with travel-size sets around the market. When preparing your stuff for a flight, be mindful of the limitations set by the airline. Containers for your carry-on baggage must follow the rule of holding no more than 100 ml of liquid.

Together with your toiletries, you can pack your skincare products too for more great selfie opportunities at each new travel destination!

3. Gadgets and chargers

Technology plays a huge role in our daily lives---from mobile phones to keep you connected to cameras to capture special moments. Hence, we should safeguard these gadgets while travelling.

If you are a digital nomad, it’s a must to bring your laptop with you ‘cause the hustle never stops. Keep your chargers and powerbank handy so you can focus on every moment during your trip rather than looking for a shop that sells such items.

Secure your gadgets by ensuring that all of them have a password and auto-lock protection. In case of theft or loss, these features will prevent unauthorised access to protect your data and privacy. Keep an eye on your gadgets, ensure that they are within arm’s length and never leave them unattended.

4. Thermal flask

It is essential to be hydrated these days and bringing a thermal flask with you is a beneficial thing to do. Keep your drink at your preferred temperature, whether it’s a warm sip of coffee or a cool gulp of juice! Not only can you save from buying bottled beverages at convenience stores, you also save the environment from additional pollution. 

With thermal flasks, you have the convenience to just refill it wherever you can. A gentle reminder to always check on your daily water intake!

5. Compression socks
