#5 things guests tend to forget to pack

You’re tired, ready for a break but you still have to pack. It’s easy to forget items when your mind is dealing with a thousand other things you have to think about before going away.

Here are five things guests tend to forget to pack.

1. Prescriptions. Check well in advance that you have enough medication for your travels (plus a day or two beyond). If you have a pet travelling with you that needs drugs, remember to make sure they have enough to get them through the holiday too.

2. Phone chargers. A classic one to forget, especially if you usually leave your charger plugged into a socket all the time. We live by our phones these days and we all know that sinking feeling when the phone goes flat and then realise the charger is still at home.

3. Appropriate clothing and footwear. If you’re staying in Blighty, chances are it’s going to rain at some point throughout your hols. Check you’ve packed your waterproofs.

4.Special Friends. Travelling with little ones? Most toddlers have a special teddy. It’s good to do a last-minute check to make sure they’re safely packed too.

5. The dogs bed. Taking pooch away with you? Remember to take their bedding. Many dogs need somewhere to sleep that is familiar to them. Their own dog bed/blankets will give them somewhere that has smells they recognise and you’ll probably find they will settle down fairly quickly.
