When you go away on holiday, much of your preparation time goes into packing the perfect capsule wardrobe, with coordinating flip-flops. Yet, sometimes, you have to think outside the box when it comes to what you pack in your travel bag.
Being prepared for a holiday abroad not only can add a little bit of luxe to your travel, it can also minimise the risk of accidents on holiday. After all, if you do all you can to protect your loved ones, and you do sustain an injury or illness, at least you have travel accident compensation to fall back on, on your return home.
What you should pack in your travel bag
Have you thought beyond the usual when it comes to what to pack in your travel bag? There are so many gadgets and gizmos out there to make your holiday easier and add a little touch of additional security.
We take a look at five of the best unconventional items to pack in your travel bag:
- Sun safety box, for keeping your valuables safe with you while you laze around and catch some rays
- UV body swimsuits for youngsters, to wear alongside sunscreen, providing extra protection from UVA and UVB rays
- Compact outdoor first aid kit, to ensure you are prepared for all accidents abroad
- Sand resistant towels, guaranteeing that you don’t bring half of the beach home in your suitcase
- Camera snorkels, for capturing the magic during your time in the sea
