International travel requires more advanced planning to ensure you have the right travel visas, up-to-date vaccines or immunizations, and a valid passport. In most cases, you’ll also want to book your flights and accommodations ahead of time, as last-minute international travel can be costly.
Are you packing for yourself, or will you be packing for your children or family as well? If you’re traveling solo, travel-sized items are probably all you need. But if the whole family is coming along, you’ll need to add toiletries for each person on your travel checklist.
The longer your trip, the more items you’ll need. Remember, the more days you’re away from home, the more variance there could be in the weather.
