Essential Items That You Need in Your Hand Luggage

Woohoo – It’s finally time to kiss goodbye to the working weekend, say goodbye to the bad weather and get yourself on a little vacation. It’s a very exciting time and you are no doubt waiting in anticipation for those plane wheels to leave the ground and take to the sky. That being said, there are still a few things you need to do before you can go on your vacation, and one of these is the dreaded pack.

Several questions run through your mind when you start packing for your holiday but one of the main thoughts is how you differentiate between what should go in your hand luggage and what should go in your suitcase. The below article is going to talk about this in more detail, as we dive into the essential items that you need to have in your hand luggage.

Your Passport

Arguably, one of the most important things you need to have is your passport. You are going to be unable to travel abroad if you do not have it and, as such, you need to make sure that you always have it on your person. You also usually need to show it before you board the plane as well. Make sure that when you start packing your hand luggage, you start by including your passport. You should also check that your passport is in date before you pack it too.

Your Phone

You also need to make sure that you have your phone with you, this is for both practical and personal reasons. Practically, your phone is a good device that you can use to store your ticket and keep on hand information about your journey. You are waiting around a lot for your flight, not to mention you have the flight itself and, as such, you may well end up getting bored. If this is the case, then you can use your phone to listen to music, watch videos and even play games. If you enjoy online gambling, then you can always use it to head over to real money casinos online which will help pass the time.


If you are planning to buy some food or drink at the airport or whilst on the plane, you are going to need to have access to a bit of money. As such, it is a good idea to have easy access to your purse or your wallet so that it is simply paying for these things. You can use your card but then you should also be sure to keep a bit of cash on you as well, just in case there are any issues with the currency of the place that you are flying to. You can also use your purse and wallet to keep hold of receipts, which is beneficial if you plan on claiming tax back on items you buy, for instance, if you are away on business and need proof of spending.
