Travelling is not travelling if there is no luggage! Packing for any trip, shot or long, is indeed a headache. Also, there is this constant buzz of not crossing the weight limit for the check in baggage!

However, your carry bag is an important part of the whole deal too. It contains the thing that you can use anytime, even after you have checked in your other luggage. So you must pay extra attention while packing it up. Here are some essentials to pack in your backpack.


For someone who is on daily doses, it is a must that their medication is handy. These can be Vitamins or other tablets. Remember to pack such medicines first and foremost.



We are not sure what kind of obstruction we are met with, once we start travelling. The flight might get delayed, it might rain or anything else. Always keep a change of clothes in your backpack for such situations.

3.Phone Charger

Without this one thing, your survival is next to impossible! Always pack the charger on priority. Also, if there is a power bank, pack it along.


When travelling to another place, it is always good to keep your important document handy. Pack your passport and driving license along, just in case if you run into any emergency. Please make sure you do not lose these documents. Keep them safe.




You never know what kind of accommodation you might have to take shelter in. Always pack a kit of toilet necessities with you. Paper soaps, toothpaste, toothbrush, etc.


Hunger has no time. What if you are on a flight that is not serving food. Or you are on a deserted road with no food outlets in far sight. Always pack some snacks in your backpack.


Please remember to carry some extra cash in case of emergencies. The cards might not work, always.




We hope this list was useful! Do let us know!


  1. Always snacks! You never know where you’ll end up or how long you’ll be out! I recommend light bedding (sheet, small pillow) in case you aren’t close to home!

  2. Good tips! I never used to carry a change of clothes until an airline lost my bags once. Now I make sure my bag has everything I need for at least a day!

  3. These 7 items (as well as a few other items) are always my must haves when travelling! I’m usually bad at packing snacks (or I pack the wrong snacks because I want something else) and I always end up regretting it.
