4 Top Tips for embarking on a Winter holiday – Stuart
Heading on a winter holiday is the perfect way to break yourself into the holiday season and make the most out of the winter months. From delicious food, to warm, comfortable clothing and everything in-between. However, unlike summer holidays, packing for a winter holiday often requires a little more thought. In this post, we’re detailing some of the most important things to remember when it comes to packing for and embarking on a winter holiday.
1. Waterproof your bags
When it comes to heading abroad during the winter months, the chances are that the
weather won’t be at its most favourable, but that’s all part of the experience. You should be prepared for all types of weather, from winter sun, to rain and even snow. One thing that most people often forget about is whether their bags are waterproof. If your luggage isn’t waterproof, you run the risk of damaging your belongings in adverse weather conditions when travelling. If you don’t want to buy new, waterproof bags, there are plenty of other ways you can protect your belongings. You could double pack your stuff in bin liners, or you could purchase a water repellant spray, which works wonders to keep your stuff as dry as possible.
2. Remember your thermals
If you don’t deal well with the cold, thermals are crucial if you’re heading to a destination with low temperatures. Not only that, but you should ensure that you’re packing the right thermal wear. If you’d rather avoid bulking out your outfit, you could consider packing long-sleeved thermal shirts. Generally speaking, these kind of thermal shirts offer a close fit that won’t feel too restrictive. Thermal leggings and tights also provide an extra layer of insulation.
3. Travel in your bulkiest items
A winter holiday typically calls for puffy, warm, winter coats, and even winter boots. These kinds of items can make for a difficult time spent packing, and you might run the risk of being slapped with excess baggage fees at the airport check-in desk. The best way to avoid this is to wear all of your bulkiest items whilst travelling. Yes, it may look questionable, but it will certainly go a long way in saving you money and preventing substantial costs being added to your trip.
4. Ship your luggage
Another cost-effective way to avoid excess baggage fees at the airport is by shipping your
luggage ahead to your destination with a reputable luggage shipping company. It is a
convenient and affordable way to transport your heavy bags and suitcases, and allows you to enjoy more of the travel experience as a whole when you travel luggage-free.
