An Easy Travel Packing List

Packing Checklist

Ask any frequent traveler and we all have a packing process that best suits our needs which we have refined over the years. The tailored process and individual checklist ensures we pack everything we will need during our trip.  Here is an easy travel packing list that you can tweak to suit your specific desires.

Essential Carry-on Items

Boarding Pass
Cash/Credit Cards
Headset – My favorites are the Bose QuietComfort 35 and the Bose SoundTrue Ultra in-ear headphones
Prescription medication
Phone with charger
Reading material
Tablet – If you’re a Netflix or Amazon Prime subscriber, you can download movies for viewing later.

You can read more details about essential carry-on items here.


Appropriate clothing dependent on the purpose of your trip – business or pleasure.
Small Travel Umbrella
Workout clothes

Amenity Kit

Travel Kit Bag – Buy a good quality bag that will last you a long time like a Tumi Travel Kit
Eye drops
Hand Sanitizer
Makeup (for women)
Melatonin – recommended if traveling 6 to 12 hour time zones
Nail clippers
Sewing Kit
Shaving cream/razor
Small scissors
Pain relievers

Business travel essentials

Business cards
Laptop with charger – Whether I am on business or pleasure, I never leave home without my MacBook Pro
Marketing material
Meeting handouts
Power Adapter


Each traveler has different needs and individual preferences so feel free to use this checklist as a start to develop your own. Add or delete items to your liking and keep it close when you’re packing for your next trip. I have my packing checklist on my iPhone Notes application and edit it routinely.
