Whether you’re a frequent traveller or someone who likes the one long trip per year routine, packing for travel can be tricky. While the pursuit of wanderlust is real, it comes with its own set of problems: what to pack, how many dresses are too many and do you really need four different swimsuits? This is especially true if you are going to be on the road for many days, however, that doesn’t mean packing for a day-trip is any easier. Ask me, I end up carrying at least a couple of spare outfits even if I am away for half a day. But, that’s just me.

Ahead of the peak holiday season, we thought of putting together some useful travel packing tips to help you keep your life on the go a little less chaotic. These are tips that expert travellers swear by and you will soon see why:

Make lists: We cannot stress enough on the importance of having a well-thought out list of things to carry. Ideally, start putting it together at least a week ahead of your scheduled date of travel. This will make sure that you have everything you need to carry with you. Make separate heads for clothes, toiletries, gadgets, emergency medicines etc.

Roll, don’t fold: We have been packing wrong for centuries. Now, many experts (including backpackers who are always looking to save space) believe that rolling, rather than folding, is the best way to maximise space in your suitcase. Clothes are less prone to getting wrinkles when rolled and stored.
