Travel Essentials

If you have been following my blog you’ll know that I have been travelling for over a decade now, visiting every country in the world along the way. With this extensive travel to so many places I have had to pack my bag well over a thousand times now, so I have kind of got it down to an art and the same goes with my planning to make sure everything goes smoothly. I haven’t always been good at it, I’ll be honest about that! There have been many times I forgot to book a hotel or left my passport at home but those things no longer happen thankfully. Last night I asked my mates about their travel essentials, once we got past the obvious responses of a space suit and viagra, I got lots of interesting feedback from them. It was really interesting to see how they could save a lot more time if they planned properly. 

I thought my mates would know everything I did about travel essentials, because it surprised me so much I knew it would be a good idea to put this blog post together. Here are my travel essentials, some you need to pack and some you need to do before you leave home. Everything from doing your homework, creating a good budget, being prepared for emergencies and having things that make life easier are all needed when I travel.

As the saying goes – fail to prepare, prepare to fail – that couldn’t be more true when it comes to travel because with some good planning your trip will be a breeze and a great experience. If however you decide not to plan and just hope for the best there are plenty of things that can go wrong. Firstly, you won’t have a good schedule so you don’t know how long you’ll be in each place, that means you can’t book hotels in advance or train/bus/plane tickets. Secondly, that all combines to hamper you planning your budget – if you prepare all of the prior points you can easily draw up a budget which means you’ll have a good idea how much money you need to save up before you travel. 

Finding Deals

This is something every traveller should try to learn, finding good deals on hotels, flights and activities are essential for making sure your trip doesn’t cost an absolute fortune. There are always great deals out there, you just have to make sure you do your research. For flights, the best time to start looking is around 8 weeks before you fly – another good tip is to sign up to airline mailing lists because then you’ll be the first to know about promotions and can book them before others. 

For Hotels, I first use a comparison site such as Trivago which will show me the lowest price from all the major booking sites – then I visit the hotel site to see if the deal is worthwhile. Sometimes you can end up saving over $100 a night if you check all the deals out there, there are often early bird booking discounts if you book at least a month before your arrival date.


Travelling with your technology can be anything from just a phone to your laptop. For me I always bring my phone, laptop, universal adapter and also a multi plug extension lead. 

My phone – absolutely essential for photos, maps, e-tickets, last minute bookings and updating my social media.

My laptop – I need this because I need to work. So this allows me to update my blog and answer work emails on the road, it’s great earning money whilst I travel.

Universal adapter – these are one thing every traveller needs to have in your bag. There’s nothing more annoying than arriving at your hotel late at night, when all the shops are shut and realising your plugs don’t match what’s on the wall.

Extension lead – I love having one of these because the plug sockets are not always in the most convenient location and an extension lead eradicates that problem. You can also charge all your tech at the same time, so when you check out in the morning everything is fully charged.

What are your travel essentials? Is there anything you always do before you travel and are there any items you simply can’t travel without?

  1. I think a Power Bank and a neck pillow might also come in handy during travels. Since we tend to sit for long hours, our neck aches and the smartphone’s battery drains along. Also, one more important thing we’re missing out here is the First Aid kit and some vitamins to keep our engines running throughout the journey.

  2. Marrakech is one of the best cities in Morocco. So your tour will be amazing from the departure and after that, there are so many wonderful sights that deserve to be visited like Atlas Mountains (Tizi N Tichka): it is a chain of mountains in which you will see sights and stores who buy Berber traditional clothes. After long-distance, we will achieve Ouarzazate and taking our lunch and of course some rest. We are going to follow our way to Draa Valley at Agdz, via so many Berber villages until being in Zagora. This small village will be amazing for us because we are going to ride camels and getting to Camp for spending a night with Berber’s pieces of music and also having delicious dinner. In fact, you are free to sleep under the heaven full of stars or sleeping in cam.
